Day is replacing McDonald

And then will Datone Jones be released to make room for Carradine?
they should just leave AA on IR until they fix the glitch.

How many Big Ends do we need...AA, Tank. Blair, Thomas, Day, Douzable, Jones, etc.

Good Lord...try out a LEO/ER for God's sake.

Day is more of a 3T but probably can do Big End as well. We don't have much at 3T in base behind Buck.

Apparently the knock on him is that he's either an undersized DT or a short/pudgy DE. Either way, much more upside than a 30+ something that has no future on the team (Tony McDaniel).

Yup, put him at 3t and let him attack. That's what he does best. He's a great fit for those looping and slanting stunts Saleh likes.

Like the move! I was a fan during the draft process thought he would be a late 2nd early 3rd pick.

I'll take him over an old McDaniels

Like that he played at Notre Dame.

well at least 2 of those will be gone soon, so why not test the waters?

Oh yeah, I have no issue with the get if they think it's got potential for an upgrade and his youth and skill set seem to fit what we're looking for but with Thomas sidelined, Lynch, Elvis' age, Harold non existent, Pita inactive, we might want to try out some edge defenders and see if we can unearth a gem. It looks like we're set at BE for the next 10 years. LOL

Ah, finally, someone who can give Buckner some breathers. That can help!

Yeah, McDaniel is already gone so probably next up to get cut is Datone Jones.
7-9
Love it. He was a star at ND.

I'm not sure he will be a 5T but he could be real good as a 3T.

Signed for next year:

5T- Soloman Thomas / Arik Armstead
NT- Earl Mitchell / DJ Jones
3T- Deforest Buckner / Sheldon Day
LEO- Ronald Blair / Elvis Dumervil

I like it.

Free agents:

Tank Carradine
Leger Douzable
Aaron Lynch
Datone Jones

I'm not sure any of those 4 are brought back.
