Defensive Line

Recommended Posts

I wanted to get your thoughts on who makes the final roster on the Dline. I would like to see them keep 10 guys

DE- Geathers, Smith, Robinson, Fanenee, Rucker
DT- Thorton, Peko, Myers, Allen, and Toenia.


We probably would dress 8-9 of them on Sundays but I think these guys give us a very solid rotation.

I don't know if 10 defensive linemen make the team, especially with versatile guys like Robinson and Fanene who can play end or tackle. They might need the roster spots at other positions.

I always thought Xzavie Jackson was doing pretty well. Probably not well enough for a roster spot though.

I agree why not Robinson. We can play both positions and he being fresh with more bodies should play better.

we won't keep 10, and I think we'll go with youth. Thornton and Toeiana can both play end.

Do we cut someone who is a better player right now so we can keep a young player with potential?

My only thing is the other two DTs we signed are both 1 year contract guys, and if we didnt resign them, and Toe is taken we'd be looking for 2 DTs again in the offseason.

I can understand that. But, again, do you cut a better player right now to keep someone with "potential"?

If Marvin and Chuck decide Big Toe is one of the best players, keep him on the roster. But, particularly at DT, which is not our best position, keep the best players you have. If that means you risk losing someone with potential by putting him on the PS, so be it. Especially after the years we spent waiting for Askew to blossom.

I see what your saying but I dont think the Toe is in the same catagory as Askew in being a lazy ass that could care less if he played or not...
I see this guy personifies intensity.. Now whether he has the actual skills to go with that I have no idea at this point...
Id like to see more of Kendrick Allen.... I think its between Toe and Allen for that run stuffing tackle the team so desperately needs...

hence why I think we let Robinson go in favor of 5 DT's. In the off chance that Rucker and/or Fanene get hurt again, we can always re-sign Robinson. I don't think teams will be knocking down his door. Toeiana on the other hand may get snatched up quick.


I just think its safe to cut Robinson consider Thornton and Toeiana can both play DE.

In the off chance? I don't trust either of them to stay healthy at this point.

Toeaina has played pretty good...I think he sticks, Brob gets shown the door and Xzavie goes to the PS, leaving: Smith, Rucker, Fanene, Thornton, geathers, Myers, Peko, Allen and....?
