lets say Floyd starts the season on the PUP.

given that Datone Jones is more of a tweener, and Shamar Stephen fits more of the NT role, does Jaleel Johnson find himself in a starting role?


I think it may look like a platoon, unless Johnson performs well immediately where you can't take him off the field. UT typically has a steep learning curve so it might be a year before he's a full time starter.

What I think will end up happening is Stephen and Johnson will split reps in base. Stephen plays more against run heavy teams and 3rd and short. Jones would come in on nickel on obvious pass downs. I could see Johnson also playing some nickel on first and second down.

Even though I still only see him as a rotational player.

I don't think he makes the team. I'm of the opinion that Jones was signed to replace him.
