Well I'm hopeful that Crawford can take the spot, although I have seen him more as a replacement for Hatch when he leaves than a candidate for DE. Guess the staff will make this decision on where best to use Crawford, with a determiner being his ability to turn the edge as an edge rusher at this level. If he has the body lean and bend to get around the edge, I'm sure the job is his to lose, and if he does indeed have that ability you will see this staff definitely let Spencer walk.
Either way we will still need to address the DE position this offseason, as Ware, Spencer (if here) and Crawford are really our only options for the position at the moment, and that just can't happen at a premium position that is probably the most important on any defense.
