Fellow Ticats fans :
What are your thoughts on our recent moves on defence ?
Anyne have any idea how our DLINE might be shaping up and how the two new non imports mnight fit in ? Bulcke and Shomari Williams ?
Anyone have any idea what the 2 linebacker additions might impact our current linebacking crew ? Simoni Lawrence and Bowman ?
How about our defensive backfrield with additions of Beasley , Mccullough , Patrick ? where do these gusy seem to fit in
Keep inmy mind this is just my opinion and sense based on the moves they are making . I think Austin feels the defensive backfield was our weakedst area and because of that he feels thay cannot afford to use a non import there at this time . they have not had a good cover corners for the longest time and have not had a true saferty either ,
This is why they grabbed Mccullough , Beasley and Patrick . These will occupy 2 corner spots and the safety and Colclough , Smith and Webb would be the halfbacks with Smith/ Hinds g up the corners and Hinds and Stephan/ Bucknor backing up
I am not quite sure what is going on with The DLINE and linebackers ?
We need a true rush end and noen of these mves solved that ..I think getting Shomari gavce us oprions and replaced KANYA on specialty teams ..Shomario can play weak side linebacker or Defensive End . Austin says Defensice End so I am guessing this emans they want to play at least one on import on the DLine .Simoni Lawrence can play middle linebacker or weak side linebacker and so Can Marecllus Bowman ...I am wondering if Austin might be open to a 3 -4 defence with Torrey Davis at the Nose Tackle and Peguise and Shmori Williams as Ends and a linebacking crew of ( Knwlton , Rey Willams / Lawrence, Jamal Johnson AND Bowman )
I am not sure how Bulcke would be used ether ...
I do sense that Jamal Johnson and / or Rey Williams could get release based on these acquisition of Bowman and Lawrence
