He was running as the starter on the Denver defense before he got hurt last year. So who knows what he can give. If he is an upgrade over Shaugnessey and Carter then we will be in a much better position in terms of competition when camp comes around.


yea we are so weak at de he might end up starting lol


I don't care who is starting there as long as they are getting results. I thought that was the idea?

So what. As long as he is stopping the run and putting pressure on the passer I don't care what the stopwatch says.

I'm pretty sure when he says he is slow he doesn't mean running the 40. I'm sure he means he seems slow getting to the passer which I agree with. But if he can shed blocks he would be an upgrade regardless.

this.


I understood what you meant. But he doesn't have to get actual sacks to be effective. Pressure would put balls in the air for DB's to pick off. That's all I'm concerned about. And i doubt he can be any slower getting to the QB than Shaugnessey. We just need a hungry upgrade opposite Houston.

Hunter said that he is playing DE, so im going to assume its LE.

Im just speculating but I think our DL is gonna Look something like this...
with a trade down.

Hunter- Houstan- Sims- Carradine

He was actually a pretty good player for us when he was completely healthy. Not a bad depth signing at all. I'm embarrassed that I didn't know he was a FA. Oh well, now he's the enemy. Twisted Evil

Houston is staying at DE but will slide inside in obvious passing situations.

Like I said in another thread, he slimmed down to 285 for speed so i don't think he will play inside at that size. And its a little early to say what the starters will look like. But it should be pretty interesting once it is all said and done.

You keep saying he slimed down to 285 for speed but you have no idea what he will show up at TC guys tend to gain weight during the off season anyway and seeing that we are very short on UT Im willing to bet it's going to be a little more permanent than you think.

Agreed, its like I've been saying all along with ion Jordan. Just because a guy plays at X weight does not mean that he can't gain or lose weight before the next season starts. Houston can put on weight if needed.

Linebacker/defensive end Jason Hunter's base salary for 2013 is $715,000 with Raiders.


It's not his cap hit though. The cap hit will be less, i'll check on that but it'll be around 500k.
