Remember... Ballard wants 10 DL on the 53 man roster, and 8 DL on the game day active roster.
So, if not Sheard coming back, someone has to fill the spot? Ballard wants his DL so fresh all game long to keep constant pressure on opposing QBs.
I don't think a sheard replacement is as big a need as before. I thin, they'll probably play Autry at DE when they play 4-3, and then move him inside on passing downs. They'll also have Lewis backing him up, as I think he'll get more of a look at DE this year.
We’ll have to agree to disagree.. there’s a reason so many fans wanted Clowney.. we need another impact player.. Buckner will be double and triple teamed if we don’t have somebody who can get pressure.
I can see adding a TE there as well but I believe Ballard is trying to build a beast on defence. Need another head for the monster.
