He's played pretty well so far. With the slow starts Seymour and Kelly have gotten off to, should Desmond Bryant play the most snaps of the 3? He's an UFA after this season, so I'm sure he's ready to ball out.

If the FO think Seymour is in his last year here then yes, he should definately see more game time and be gradually promoted to starter. Maybe the future at DT (for a 4-3) could be Bryant and Houston. I can see Kelly staying another year or two but being used as primarily a pass rushing, disrupting force on passing downs.

If we move to a 3-4 anytime soon he could be used as DE so that would be a different situation altogether.

For now, i'd prefer we stick with 4-3 and work Houston and Bryant into the staring DT roles, only by trying them will we find if we need more bulk inside and then at least we have the draft and off season to work on that.

Yes. He's clearly been the best interior Dline player, period.

Honestly, as poor as Seymour and Kelly are playing, I bench them both in favor of Bryant and Bilukidi. See what you have for next year.

Totally forgot about him......he'll definately get some game time toward the end of the season, but Bryant has impressed every chance he's given for a couple years now good to have a cerebral guy on the DL as TKO doesn't seem to be the sharpest

Nope, Bryant starting wont improve this defense and it will just make him more expensive to resign next year.

Yes.

Bryant and Houston should be our starting DT's, since its pretty clear that Seymour, and possibly Kelly will not be back next year due to their high salaries.

Shaggy, Bryant, and Houston are solid pieces to build a Dline around. All three are good run defenders and all get good push/pressure on the pocket. A pass rusher would do wonders for this group. I'm hoping we find that guy in the draft with our first pick.

Question:

What kind of salary cap relief would be see if both Seymour and Kelly were gone by next year? Would it be enough to resign both Shaggy and Bryant?

What's the deal with Bilukidi? I didn't see him do much aside from a few tackles in 2nd half of the last preseason game. Hamilton played very well and didn't get PS. He's with Washington now.

That was to be expected. He was a raw prospect.

Amongst our existing players, Bryant and Houston should be the starters. But they shouldn't be the starters. Because they both belong at UT.

Kelly and Seymour must go. They suck up 25 mil on the payroll and with Bryant and Houston in the lineup there would be absolutely no dropoff. It's a no brainer. Seymour has no gas left and Kelly plays for himself.

Then why add him to the roster? Ditto for Crawford.

You gotta give some guys time to develop into something.. Jeez, not every guy can be a star day one.
Why add him has the same answer as why add someone else over him?

The real question is whether you are putting the time into the right guys, like a Desmond Bryant. He's great value for the pickup - UDFA?

You serious? Because they are young players with some room to grow. Both were developmental and flashed in preseason. You want to cut them and let someone else add them to their rosters?
