    you and texxan need to decide whether you want him at DE or LB because he can't be a plus for both polls.

    When the Texans hit the field I expect him to line up at DE.

    As do I...as I have ALREADY stated twice. He is LISTED as a LB, but will be a hybrid DE/LB and will play mostly on passing downs...and can and will also drop back into coverage. Don't acknowledge him in the other if you dont want, but he is listed as an LB on the roster and his stats will fall to that category.

    I think he's an upgrade for the Texans as a passrushing DE, but I wouldn't say that makes them better than the Titans.

    Also, being a passrushing OLB in a 3-4 defense isn't the same as being a DE or OLB in a 4-3 defense. His success in New England may not carry over depending on how they plan to use him.

    But he was a very good 4-3 LB in Chicago 6 years ago.
