WOW this could be a great pickup for the cats as he is a good canadian Defensive Tackle .
Wonder why he got let go ..likley too high of a salary as he was signed as a free agent . if we could get him here for around 100 K or less that would be great as we need a true DT on the DLINE WITH CFL experience.
Any thoughts ?
Romero and Rose in the middle and Peach on the end…works well for me…
Sorry my mistake …Romero is American but a great Nose TACKLE / DT
How about Romero as Nose Tackle with Rose and Peach at the ENDS as Rose is an end who played out of position last year
and then have 3 -4 defence with Kevin Eiben starting in the middle with Rey Williams and then Jamal Johnson and Markieth Knowlton on the outside ?
There are two very good looking Defensive Ends in camp too to keep an eye on :
93 Shawn Crable - Michigan 6-5 250
2011: Played for the UFL’s Sacramento Mountain Lions.
2010: Played in six games with the NFL’s New England Patriots…made four tackles…was released by the Patriots on November 17…added to the New York Jets’ practice squad on November 19.
2009: Missed the entire NFL season with the New England Patriots after being placed on the injured reserve on September 5.
2008: Selected in the third round (78th overall) of the NFL Draft by the New England Patriots…was inactive for the first half of the season before being placed on injured reserve.
Played four years (2004-07) at Michigan…made 141 tackles (98 solo), 19.5 tackles for a loss, 16.5 quarterback sacks and seven forced fumbles in 46 games…named second-team All-Big Ten in 2006 and 2007…served as team captain in 2007.
95 Mark Schliechl - 6-2 252 - Colorado School of Mines
Signed with the NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars on July 26…was waived by the Jaguars on December 9.
Played four years (2007-10)at the Colorado School of Mines…became the all-time NCAA Division II career leader in sacks (46.0) and recorded the fourth-highest total of tackles for a loss (70.5)…named the RMAC and NFFCC Defensive Player of the Year in 2010…earned all-RMAC recognition three times…finished as runner-up for the Gene Upshaw NCAA Division II Lineman of the Year
The possibility of a 3-4 defence sounds intriguing. However, I'm not sure if Eiben can hold up as an every down linebacker. If he can, then that could help the secondary some.
Forgot about Crable. If he can bring it, that would really boost the front seven.
