I would take him over Bobby Richardson as a backup DE. They tried to make him a LB, but he's 270lbs and it didn't work. His PFF grades are pretty good too. He had a combined 10sacks the last 2 years

That would be a nice get for us. Another sub package pass rusher. Not too bothered by his lack of size. Kikaha is barely 250 pounds and he was going to our starting DE. Ryan Davis is still a kid and can always get bigger and stronger in the training room.

He's 270. Perfect size.
270 is a perfect size for a WDE but in a 4-3 over that we run 285 is the perfect size for a 5 tech SDE also Richardson can slide over to the 3 tech spot Davis definitely won't do that. Bringing him in over someone like Darryl Tapp I can see but Davis and Richardson are different types of players.

Haha. I don't care where he plays, how big he is, who we already have. He can rush the passer. I'm game.

During the offseason I went out on a limb a few times and said that Bobby Richardson was the most underrated player on this team. No. I'm not thrilled with him as a starter, but he makes an incredibly solid backup.

But that was during the offseason. I honestly don't remember anything from him this entire preseason.

I'm all for adding pass rushers but cutting Bobby Richardson would be very stu. He's our current version of Anthony Hargrove.

I think we're done acquiring DEs unless we cut the kid we traded for from Miami.

I think they moved Bobby Richardson inside to the 3-tech anyway. I remember Cam Jordan doing an interview and he mentioned Richardson moving inside. Maybe he meant sub packages.
