    I have reviewed all of Sims plays from this season. He was really good under the circumstances. He was better against the run than I expected and very good in coverage.

    Regardless, of 4-3 or 3-4, they should try to re-sign him to a reasonable contract; although, they might offer more if they really switch to a 4-3.

    Guys he was terrible . What were you guys watching ? Alex Albright is better . If we go 4-3 we are drafting another LB . There is no way the team would feel comfortable with sims as a starter week 1 . He was so bad the 1-15 colts cut him .

    Why not just start Albright and spend the draft pick somewhere else? I'd rather a stud lineman (O or D) than another high pick on a LBer. Maybe later in the draft, like rounds 3 and beyond, but not in the first 2 again.

    He really wasn't that bad at all..... he played out of position IMO and did a pretty good job. He isn't going to command a bunch of money. We can probably get a nice cap friendly deal done with him.

    Two-year, four-million-dollar deal; Connor released; Carter, Lee and Sims/Albright as your starters in a 4-3. Wilber and Sims/Albright as your depth players. Simple. Effective. My money would be on Sims to win the starting job over Alex Albright, however.

    When healthy, he played significantly more snaps than Albright or Connor on a game-to-game basis.

    You wouldn't get the chance to bring him to camp. He would have a contract somewhere. He's an FA and I am telling you, he's not going to be waiting on the streets to get a camp invite.

    Then I gotta pass on the guy. With Carter and Lee coming back, Albright's development and hopefully Wilber's upside...

    I agree I'd rather start Albright . I was highly impressed with his speed . In his limited time Albright > sims , Conner etc ..

    Ware - Ratliff - Hatcher - Spencer

    Carter Lee. Albright

    Carr ?????! Church. Claiborne

    We are actually in good shape if we move to a 4-3 it makes sense . We just need a better safety . A must better safety .

    It's pretty much a given that we can't sign Spencer and also sign Romo. I don't think you can realistically pencil in Spencer ar LDE. Also, Ratliff is gone IMO but if by some miracle, he stayed, he would likely play the position you have Hatcher in. Also, I don't think Albright could play LOLB. That guy has to cover a lot. Not sure how good he is in that area.

    Crawford could easily play Spencer's spot . I wouldn't feel comfortable with Albright starting BUT I trust him a lot more than I trust sims .

    Both Albright and Wilber are more 34 OLB's. Neither are a good fit as a 43 OLB and would more than likely be DE's in a 43.

    Albright is listed at 6-5, 260.

    Wilber at 6-4, 245.

    They both would lack the movement and coverage skills needed as a 43 OLB, IMO.

    I think Wilbur could make a very good 4-3 de . He has a very good straight burst .

    Not there. That OLB covers TEs down the field a lot. That's exactly what Sims does well but to each his own.

    Wilber seems more the size of a 4-3 OLB. Von Miller is only like 6'3" 235.

    I agree with this. Both would be better suited to the right side in a 43 if they stuck at LB. That LB rushes more and has less coverage responsibilities but I agree. For sure Albright, he would be a better fit for DE as Ware's backup IMO. Could also be the guy who comes in for Crawford if you decided to move him to DT in obviouse pass rush situations.

    I disagree I don't want a 5"8 LB covering jimmy graham or grankowksi I'd rather have carter or lee doing that job . We need another LB no doubt about it .

    Yeah, but Von Miller is spit on a hot skillet quick and Wilbur is not. Wilbur may not fit a 43 at all. IDK.
