Maybe we throw in 6'3" 230 Dadi Nicolas at Whip LB since he's already taking snaps as a gunner on the punt coverage team. But then again... he'll be pretty vulnerable in pass coverage.
Or maybe... we move around the LBs and move 6'2" 234 Tariq Edwards to Whip LB? Depends if Bud Foster feels his walk-on Whip LBs aren't ready and the Backers are more ready.
But then again, next man up! Lets see what 6'0" 216 Josh Trimble or 6'0" 216 Derek DiNardo have in store. We don't need someone that's just solid but instead someone that can help the defense, play consistent, and is a playmaker.
The next couple of weeks are going to be very interesting.
