    It sounds like he is going to play DE for us possibly in the Kevin Carter role.

    Webster this guy was the bigger bodied DE we have been looking for to help shut down the run. Look for a WR, DT or G in the first. Its all about BPA baby! Ruston is a gangster!

    Because he is a career bench warmer player?

    We signed him to a one year deal worth little more than the vet minimum. Why would people be talking about him?

    Like the signing better than hill. He seems like the same type of guy for much less money.

    A 6'8 300+ lb guy is a DT in our system. He is not a DE!
    Why are people confused about that? Kevin Carter? How do we make that comparison?

    He's a good signing because he is big and at least hustles and plays hard. Something few Chiefs linemen seemed to do over the years.

    Would not be surprised at all if he out plays Hill.

    Run stopper. Wherever on the line. We could also line up more 34 packages with him and hill around.

    I agree with Rolltide. Even in run situations, you want someone who can rush the passer. there are no 100% guaranteed run situations. a person that size, you want in the middle.
