    He's been saying this pretty consistently for the last couple of weeks. Really down on our DL play after the WAS game.

    How could it not be if you are going 4-3? It has to be DL first and safety second for a cover two to have a chance to work based on the current personnel.

    I don't think he's been relevant since his 6 sack game 5 years ago.

    Does't matter. They barely had enough DL to play a 3-4 -- there are supremely understaffed today to play a 4-3.

    I could definitely see a 4-3 DT with the Cowboys 1st pick.

    My question is he now seen as a DE, or and OLB? Money wise?

    If Melton hits free agency, hopefully he's our #1 target.

    Not really if spencer is resigned we are pretty solid .

    Ware -rat - hatcher - spencer

    Albright-lissemore -Spears-Crawford

    Maybe a 2nd or 3rd rounder biggest need in 4-3 a safety and another OLB

    I would love to know who the starting linebackers would be in the 4-3....Lee, Carter, and well whoever.

    The needs on D suddenly increase big time, and its not just the DL, Broaddus.

    Actually they have, but I'm working on a high priority thing, so I can't look it up.

    But three off the top of my head, are Phillipe Sparks and Michael Barrow. Ernie Sims came from Eagles..Randall Cunningham, too.

    Ratliff is under contract at only 5 mill next year which is a reasonable price for him . Now that we are moving to a 4-3 no way we cut him . He would dominate at DT in a 4-3 . He is that perfect Leon lett body .

    Hatcher and Ratliff are both 3 techniques in this D. We really don't have a 1 tech unless it is Price or Brent. Lissmore could do it some. We have 2 defensive ends and only Ware is the requisite pass rusher.

    Of course it was basically hot garbage in a 3-4 too. We need bodies who are 275 lbs pass rush type guys.

    Between Wilbur, Albright and occasionally Carter I think we have a SAM.
