Wonder if he could play the SAM in our base defense on a couple of snaps.

Would be a fine pick up I think

And you know this guy is ready to win some real games and stick it to the Chargers who didn’t extend him last year when he wanted it.
Was the zero-sack season his way of getting revenge?

He’s basically Justin Houston without the possible hard feelings there between Houston and the team.

I don’t get this line of thinking. The guy was 6’2” 264 lbs at the combine

He’s about Danna’s size, I don’t see a problem there.

He'd be better served keeping him somewhat fresh and rotating him with someone like Danna, who is kind of his mirror opposite. Keep a guy like that somewhat fresh and he'll feast late in games.

He's a good player that's past his prime, which is totally okay; that's exactly the type of guy The Patriots used to win most of their Super Bowls.
I understand but with him being decent against the run too we've got to keep those kind of guys on the field as long as possible because that's an area we have to improve aswell as the pass-rush. Right now Clowney, Dunlap and Ingram are available and Veach has to get it right.

At the combine 9 years ago?

He's listed at 247 right now. That's pretty light for a LDE in a 4-3, at least as a 3 down player.

He's not a prototypical LDE, but he is a talented player, and I'm sure Spags would be happy to have him.

Well, I'd argue that part of the pass rush problem is guys wearing down and getting tired. I would argue that rotating guys in and out and keeping fresh horses is important late in games and late in the season.

I'm not saying you need to hide him or anything, but why use up all his energy on first down running plays when his true talent is in rushing the passer? Let Danna chase RB's. Use Ingram to rush the passer. That's all I'm saying.

And he'll still have some burst in the 4th quarter, when he can tee off.

Ingram thrived with just Bosa alongside him so having Frank and Chris could be huge for him. No other team in the league would have a better trio imo. I also think Ingram's attitude could breath new life into the DL room.

I'm down, he was a huge part of a D line that always made life hard on us

If he gives us what Ogbah did, thats enough to justify it

We've had a problem against the run for years...it would be utterly naive to leave a good run stopper out on downs just to "rest" him. Either he can handle the job at hand or don't bother signing him and go get Clowney...that's my opinion. Can't keep turning a blind eye to the run D.
