I think we will see some interesting decisions on the Dline this year. Balmer seems to be coming on, especially since he was willing to spend his off season with J. Smith. He is getting consistent push so that counts for something. Mitchell, Egboh, RJF are also getting good play. So Soap may get pushed out if he is not careful.
So potentially J. Smith, A. Franklin, Balmer with RJF, Mitchell, MacDonald, Evans as backups.
I don't remember hearing this. Can you please explain
Well, I am not Ninefan56, but I can explain
I remember reading about this, and lo and behold, I found this article from Barrows:
This is the relevant part:
He has the grunt-like mentality and work ethic needed at the position. That he spent the offseason working out with Justin Smith, one of the hardest workers on the team, is another sign that effort won't be an issue with Balmer.
So I am guardedly optimistic about Balmer as well, I hope he continues to show improvement and becomes a steady part of the D-line rotation this season
