    I really doubt we bring back Spencer. Especially with having to get under the cap in March. I know we could do some restructuring and release certain players to get under it, I just don't see us doing it.

    Yeah. To be honest, I don't think Spencer will be here. I think it will be Crawford at LDE. He is like 285 lbs.

    I think (in the NFL) that Carter is a best fit at the Will.

    You could put him at Sam, but I don't know that that would be optimal.

    My biggest question on the switch to 4-3 is if we keep Spencer, what do we make him? Everyone is so quick to call him DE but look at his game, he's great in coverage and run stopping. Why not keep Spence in the LB corp and make out 4-3 front seven:

    Carter. Lee. Spencer
    Ware.Ratliff.Hatcher.Lissemore/Crawford

    And if Spencer goes, make Albright the OLB

    I think he can be a good DE. He doesn't really have a lot of speed. But in the end I don't see Rat and Spence with us next season.

    We won't keep him because we would be paying way too much money for a Run Stopping DE. He will get much more money as a 34 OLB. Aint gonna happen.

    That's because he was too small for the traditional 3-4 ILB. He would fair much better in a 4-3.

    I'm looking around the league at 4-3 defenses and I see a lot of interesting things. There is really no clear-cut criterium. The Seahawks have a 323 pound Red Bryant playing DE. The Bengals and a few other teams have giant NTs. The Bears, on the other hand, have a 260 pound Henry Melton playing DT. The Broncos have 5'11" 260 pound Elvis Dumervil and 300 pound Derek Wolfe playing DE, while their best pass rusher Von Miller is playing SLB. I think as long as you're creative and get your best guys on the field, you don't necessarily have to have traditional guys playing every position.
