    Bit different, Evans hasnt sniffed pro bowl/ all pro level play.

    This was a fairly easy choice for us to make.

    I don't necessarily disagree with the choice but I don't agree with your assessment. I think we forget how well he played in 2019. I'm not saying he deserved to be a pro-bowler, he didn't, but I think we can say he "sniffed" it. Definably going in the right direction.

    111 tackles, 9 for a loss, 2.5 sacks, 7 hurries, 2QB knockdowns, and... no ejections

    He added another 18 tackles and 3 TFL in the playoffs

    He did struggle in coverage and with missed tackles. I must say... I am very surprised to see that he actually improved in both categories this season. He went from 17 missed tackles (13.3%) in 2019 to just 3 (3%) in 2020. That's crazy good. He went from giving up 112.5 passer rating to 87.1 with 5 PBUs. Decent.

    I think the loss of Tyron McKenzie and Dean Pees played a large role in Evans, Brown, and Long not playing on the same page. Again, the whole D was off.

    All this to say, I'd be fine with paying him $9.75 for the 5th year option, but I'm also fine declining it.

    He drafted Evans. Would that just make him even?

    I can think of one so far that was out of the league in a year. All but one of his first round picks are starters in the league still. And a large number of his later round picks have hit. JRob can definitely find talent.

    Idk why Evans is pegged as just an ilb. I really like the way long has played, now we bring in rice (obviously the titans love him), let Evans do a little olb/pass rushing. Use him in different ways and see if it works out. He was moved around a lot at Alabama and we should try it out imo. We have a good Ilb in brown, 2 "good" guys outside of Evans that can play Ilb, try something different!

    I'm excited about these additions on d. This is going to be a very different team this year. Everybody put a little bread on the titans.
