Bowers is not an in-line TE. He’s not a Y. He’s an F. He’s roughly 6’4” and 230. He’s a much better Kylen Granson or Will Mallory. Those guys were 4th and 5th round guys. Do you really want to use a top-10 pick to get an upgrade?
Paye may only average 8 sacks a year his entire career. He gets alot of tfls and is great vs. the run. Sometimes we are used to DEs getting double digit sacks because of watching Freeney and Mathis for years. While in total our DEs have less sacks, our DTs have nearly quadruple that of the DTs in Freeney/Mathis time. This year so far we lead in tfls and last year was 2 sacks from all time Colts list.
