He was the Packers top ST tackler so that's a big part of his role too.

I expect we'll IR Rico to make room

Yeah this looks like a ST move, too.

Don't much care about the bottom two, three guys on the roster either way, but I do like that Garrett likes to churn those spots. I think it sets a good tone going into week one that jobs aren't safe.

It's a nice combo - pass rusher who plays on the coverage units. You need that flex when you won't have two of the LBs that dress play ST

He'll be a pass-rushing RDE specialist on 3rd downs. Too light otherwise and isn't fit for Will. He has a good sack ratio per pass rush attempt. That's his gig. I'd probably cut ties with Mayowa to make room. I'd be nervous if I was Tapper, too.
Didn't Mayowa lead the team in sacks last year? When he was healthy and the last month of the season he was arguably our best DE

Mayowa was our sack leader last season. Only DE tonget consistent pressure late in the year.

From watching some plays and highlights, it seems most of plays come from being unblocked.

Tough break kid. In Dallas, you get 5 hall of fame lineman blocking you every week!! You get held, illegally blocked and facemask pulled on every play
