BUT, I keep saying in all my posts that I think this team needs to get smarter and more instinctive and Safety has been a HUGE weakness for this team for a long time (particularly since decline in production from Roy Williams).
It isn't as sexy as getting some help for D Ware up front, because that was a huge issue last season, and would help secondary overall as well, but adding Barron sounds like it has a good chance of helping in a big way as well.
What is his injury history like, moving forward. I heard he's had a few injuries he's played through over last few seasons. Are they long-term/chronic type problems?
That's pretty much my sentiment. We have been running a 3-4 with just another guys at defensive end for a while now. The premiere 3-4 teams all invest heavily in their front. We don't and we are not a premiere defense since 2008 when we had a very good rotation of ends and Ellis and Spencer together.
It looks like Brockers/Poe are falling some. I would much rather have one of them and an extra 2nd than Barron alone.
