I guess the real question is would NO do that? The value may be a little one sided on the draft chart but it's obvious NO wants to get rid of Howard.
That's a very, very good question. I would've never thought to ask a question kinda like this...
My view is that this team needs a productive, bonafide pass rusher moreso than another linebacker. If we were to land Howard, I believe that the defensive scheme would remain primarily 4-3 and that our present linebackers can be very effective. JMO.
