    Upside...he's a decent inside pass rusher.
    Downside...he's a terrible run defender, at least when he's playing 2 gap responsibility.

    I agree he's an upgrade over Cam Thomas though.

    He might be an upgrade over Cam but that ain't good enough for me. Lissemore is here and he is an upgrade over Cam, we need a beasting NT not another rotational guy.

    I would love if they signed Earl Mitchell, Its a start, as well as insurance, through the draft we might be able to grab our run stopping "0" tech. Also knowing you'd be getting someone who basically only knows a Wade Phillips defense is always a plus, Maybe we can get back that toughness and nastiness we seem to have lacked in the past 6 years

    Having a valuable guy like Mitchell is always a plus, his 48 tackles and 1.5 sacks are also a welcomed addition.

    Thank you Miami and Stephen Ross for overpaying that man so that we could dodge a bullet. He had "Derek Cox of the NT position" written all over him.
