    I base my comment off him being all over the field.

    I just picked Khalil Mack. Last year, Mack had 1 more TFL. Landry had 2 more passes defended, 19 more tackles, 3 more QB hits.

    You mentioned Judon. Landry had 19 more tackles, 3 more passes defended, 1 more TFL, and 3 less QB hits.

    Bradley Chubb was the other non-TJ Watt AFC Pro Bowl OLB. Landry had 27 more tackles, 5 more passes defended, 1 more TFL, and 3 less QB hits.

    Landry isn't going to get you a ton of sacks by himself, but they guy is a 100% effort guy and will shine with the right guys around him.

    I'm curious how you get these names.

    Brian Poole played slot on a terrible defense. Why would we think he could play outside here? Kenny Stills caught 11 balls for one of the worst teams in the league. Hammy Watkins?

    Purely hypothetical riffing. The point is cap space can be freed up by getting creative.

    You know what makes a secondary better? Pass rush.

    I love Landry, don’t get me wrong. But like I said he needs to be part of a much deeper rotation to reduce his snaps and hopefully he can increase his production. I personally wouldn’t call him “fantastic”, but I hope he proves me wrong this year. That would be awesome!

    These aren’t specific people I’m lobbying for. Was just using them to point out the ability to get creative with the cap.

    We need EDGE and interior pass rush to make it to the promised land. That will mean getting creative at other positions.

    Well yeah. Cutting half our starters and replacing them with scrubs saves money.

    Some of that can be done, not all of it.

    And good luck attracting talent in the future when you start redoing every other players contract

    I don’t think cutting Adoree and Butler helps the team. I also think this year is an anomaly and players will not think negatively about restructures given the reduction (probable) in cap space. Unusual circumstances this year. Typically, restructures mean more upfront money for players so not necessarily a negative thing for them.

    Adoree and Butler need restructured....Watkins? He sucks, is non existent or is hurt...no thanks

    Stills? Pass

    Marvin Jones would be a good signing but I think he'll sign with LAR

    This happens on NFL teams ALL the time. And do you really think that high priced players around the league don’t expect their teams to ask them to restructure with the Cap going down this year?
