[View Full Quote]With Wade probably wanting to keep Jason Williams the only way Leon Williams can make this team is if they keep both Jason and Leon Williams. That would be five Inside Linebackers though. Have to see how the other positions on this team work themselves out in the next few weeks.
This season, the money buffer is going low power. So to surplant Hurd his place on the special teams would have to be securely in place. He would have to be strongly beat at receiver as Hurd once again is catching in games, what is thrown around him. That is dependable in his receptions as well.
As to linebackers, they seem to carry a heavier load in today's types of coverages. So other positions such as offensive line will reflect first. The heat is indeed upon Leon Williams to win by iron clad dependability.
There's no right way to do the wrong thing.
