He's not. He's a DT. Not saying he can't move out to the 5 but his role will be the 3 and 1/3.
Well, he was a DE last year, so I'm not so sure. In any case, If you take Crawford, Tapper and Gregory out of the mix, and without Mayowa, the DE field isn't really that crowded. Someone will have to be cut, but Lewis Neal and Datone Jones were probably only holding on by a thread anyway.
Lots of folks seem upset about this signing. Think of it this way, we got him cheap and he didn't cost us a 2nd rounder.
Rather telling in certain regards:
Disagree as usual.He's got limited upside. He's been in the league 4 years so likely what you see is what you get with him. Which is maybe a decent backup, rotational DE. Which is fine.
In terms of who gets cut, I haven't seen Ealy's contract but if it's a one year deal, Ealy could easily be a cut candidate himself if he doesn't perform in camp.
lol - ask anyone that works for you. I actually laughed out loud at that. Why don't you send me a phone list so I can contact people.
As for you not making assumptions, if that's true then the other alternative is you are outright lying when you talk about how giddy everyone is over signing Ealy. Just making things up - yep, that's much better than making assumptions.
Crawford has played snaps at DT and DE. Not worth it for me to look at the split. But Crawford is not likely to be cut this year although it is possible. With all the DEs in play it is unlikely Crawford will play DE much this year. Too early to take Gregory or anyone else out of the mix although I suspect 1-2 will have to be cut to get to 90.
