DT/Big End (3/4/5-Tech)
I'm guessing we'll see another Leo/SAM, possibly two, before the season starts.
This doesnt make sense. At times the use 3 down lineman with kj down at the line of scrimmage. That is only to allow Bobby and brooks on the field at the same time with 5 dbs. However, they mostly roll with four down lineman. Hyder will be an outside end starting day one guranteed. He will not fill interior wise unless collier and green somehow fail to back up reed, poona and mone. If they decided to use a heavily 34 front we wouldnt need this many 43 defensive ends. Yes they have alot of guys to kick inside, but what are we really talking here...only mayowa, Robinson and taylor on the edge if you believe hyder to be interior.
Hyder played 43 edge for lions year before last.
My guess is they are getting ready to move on from one of the guys who have been here a few years. Green? Collier? Reed? Maybe for salary, but reed actually moves inside to out. They would really effect their rotation losing him.
Ohn and sam is a backer position. Filled by wright. Previously irvin and kendricks.
