    I found the little tidbit on Randall playing some LB really interesting in the Tennessean today. I would have thought that he'd gotten work exclusively at SS with Tank gone. Does it mean they feel Thompson can convert to SS easily or that the Randall at S experiment was a bust?

    They've said they want more speed and athletic ability at linebacker. Randall does give you speed and athletic ability. Why not ????????

    Who knows where he was better suited, but I thought the best hope for him to make the final 53 was as backup SS beating out Nickey and the other dude that's been hurt a lot (#40?).

    I was trying to figure out what Jeff was talking about, cuz I didnt see that in the paper this morning. Turns out it got cut from the print edition, but its at the end of the story online.

    There's several 220 lb LB's, but it's on the small side. Who knows, maybe he has a good frame to put on more weight (muscle).

    With Boiman gone and Sirmon a potential goner, maybe his chances are there for a backup LB/mostly ST's guy. He seemed to make some plays on ST's last year, and he's a good athlete. I'm interested in seeing how things go on his 2nd position change.

    Cato June was a safety before becoming a LB.

    Dang it...I always wanted to see Tank at LB, and now he's gone.

    In light of this, I wonder if perhaps the coaching staff approached him about making the switch, but he preferred to go elsewhere and stay at safety?

    Have you seen Marcus up close and in person? Dude is as big as Keith and seems to be putting on more muscle. He's looking pretty good....:brow:
