    Not a fan. Im hoping we don't sign him.

    If anything, we need a SAM, not a WILL. Id rather get Donnie Edwards than Cato June.

        Whats his size? Is he the same size as Edwards?

        I give Edwards the edge because Im assuming he's slightly bigger than June, and even if he's not, he's infinitely better at stopping the run, something you need out of your SAM first and foremost.

            Ok, same size, Edwards is slightly smaller. He's still much better against the run though.

            I don't know, I view both of them as short term solutions anyway. So I rather get the better talent for the short term, which would be Edwards. Cato can't wrap up at all. Theres a reason why Indy won't take him back. Edwards because of age. For June, its because he's simply not that great. I rather gamble with Edwards if we go that route.

              Edwards plays bigger than he is though, don't those numbers fool you.

                  Thats definately true. Id like to have Edwards for a cheap price. I think he can provide quality SAM play in the 4-3, and we can use him instead of Pierce in the nickel, which would make Pierce a 2 down run thumper.

                  I think that maximizes the productivity of our LB core. Use Pierce, Edwards, and Chase in the 4-3, and use Edwards and Wilkinson in the nickel. I like that rotation.

                    Will someone bite? I hope not. He was a hot trade rumor last year and no one bit because of his age. Im thinking that his contract situation will drag out throughout FA. Hopefully no one bites, then we can offer him a respectable offer, perhaps 3 years with it being easy for us to cut him after 1 or 2 years, and hopefully he'll take it.

                      Argh, please, no more Free Agency linebackers. I don't think I can take the pain if it doesn't work out again.

                      Besides, seems like Reese is more interested in building up off the draft rather than Free Agency. Which I like.

                        I know, Im just saying if this is an approach we take, Id rather have Edwards over June.

                        I wouldn't mind Edwards under these circumstances:

                        1. He comes for cheap
                        2. We still look for long term solutions at LB

                        I personally think we'll be ok at LB even if we don't aquire one, I think we need to give Wilkinson and Chase a chance before we write off our LB core, but adding Edwards for cheap wouldn't hurt anybody. Worst case scenario, you can use him as a nickel specialist.

                          That 220lbs listed weight might not be accurate for Cato June.

                          He has recently stated that he played the whole season at about 215.

                          He's undersized, and misses his share of tackles, but he's very good in coverage for a LB.

                            Shoot he better be if he's 215.

                            Ive always believed that the first and foremost most important quality of any defensive player, particularly in the front 7 is his ability against the run. I don't want a liability in the run game in the front 7. Thats why Im opposed to June.

                            While Edwards is also undersized, he's very good against the run and also provides quality coverage from an LB.

                              I wouldn't say he's a liability against the run, but he does need for the DL's to keep blockers off him, more then most other LBs, to be effective against the run.

                              He has very good sideline-to-sideline speed, and if he's in the right system, I think he can be quiet good.
