Just put a clause in the contract, I'm flabbergasted when teams don't.

If Barwin trimmed back down some, how effective would he be playing a Von Miller type role in a 4-3 defense?

He might do ok but he's more of a DE than an OLB. He's a perfect fit as a 3-4 SOLB which will make him an attractive target for teams that are trying to switch to the 3-4 like Cleveland and Indianapolis. He's more valuable to a 3-4 scheme than a 4-3.

Exactly. He is more effective when he is playing over the tight end. In the 4/3 he would go back to DE. Unfortunately we never really got to see him that much in the 4/3 since his rookie year he came off the bench and in his 2nd year he was out for the season. I personally think we have seen the last of Barwin in a Texans jersey. No way I would pay that much for him coming off the year he had. Resigning Quin and giving Cushing an extension is a bigger priority. Plus Mercilus will probably end up being better than Barwin anyway.

You don't give Cushing an extension til you see how he bounces back from the ACL tear. Many players never return to their form after this type of injury.

I know. We are most likely going to wait till after the season anyway, but your right. It would be a huge gamble if we extend him before the season and he doesn't recover from his injury.

I understand the concern, and as someone who has torn his ACL twice, I can see where you are coming from - but from the looks of some other players who have had this injury, coming back from it seems to be an easier and easier proposition every passing year.

We all know about Mr. Peterson and his ACL; Now, I will call a spade a spade on that one, as Peterson had nearly impeccable knees according to Dr. James Andrews. There was no wear and tear in Peterson's knees according to the most prominent orthopedic specialist in the US, which is unheard of for someone in their mid 20s, playing in such a violent sport. So, AP is a freak of nature in that respect. However...look at Jamaal Charles. Look at Fred Jackson. Look at Eric Berry. All of these guys had similar injuries in 2011, and they were able to return to form at some point in this season.

Given that Cushing is already a gym rat who pays "meticulous attention" to his body (or completely ruins his body, depending on what side of that debate you're on) I don't see how he won't come back from this injury. One thing that Peterson did to help himself out? He worked his rehab program with Russ Paine from the Ironman Sports Institute in Houston, TX. This is right in Cush's backyard, so I don't see a scenario where Cush doesn't head to the same facilities and gets the same level of work towards his recovery.

He might start off slow, but I can't forsee this being some career altering injury for a guy who "works as hard" as Cush does.
