As you say, Bluez, he may not have had very good coverage skills. I agree with you to a point, but I have seen him set the edge quite numerous times. He is a good tackler and he puts nice pressure on the quarterback.
I would love to have Roth back . put him in the rotation at LDE . I think as it gets closer to camp someone should and will sign him . i gave up trying to figure out what this coaching staff is trying to do last year . pretty disorganised was the norm . not ready to play football .lack of discipline no offensive creativity . clock management was infuriating . this is the NFL act like you know what the hell your doing .i could go on but i wont .
they will have to improve leaps & bounds for the Browns to have any shot no matter how much talent Heckert acquires . i like everyone else is hoping that with a full offseason ..still no excuse for last years Kluster Phuque as 31 other teams got it right .. they improve .
