No thanks. 20 bench reps for a 3-4 dline player who's job is to be two gaping and fighting 2 guys every play no thanks, doesn't fit our system, we need guys who can take two out of the play so Aldon and Brooks don't. Justin and Raymac both can both are strong and can hold and can even get pressure. I just don't see the power to hold a double team and keep the lb's clean.

Let's not forget Justin Smith wasn't very productive in Cincinnati, even as a 4-3 DE. Sometimes a guy needs better players around him to make him more productive.
He was pretty decent. I don't remember him being one of the premier defensive ends, but he was pretty good from day one. Tyson Jackson does not fit this mold. There are some defensive line free agents available that have had decent careers that we could sign for one of our Trent Baalke veteran special type of deals.
