While I'd love to see him make the 53, I doubt it'll happen. Who would he supplant? Dial, Dobbs, TJE, or Tukuafu?
And if we didn't sign him, what are the chances that he'd clear waivers? There isn't the buzz around him like last year.
Yeah, he'd have to beat out Dobbs or TJE (neither add any pass rush but both are good against the run) which isn't inconceivable b/c Okoye is now on coverage units as well. And Tukuafu is only exclusively at FB now. So he's actually got a shot here but he is going to have to be heads and shoulders better than Dobbs or TJE for sure.
