    I can't say I agree with that. If a fourth round pick doesn't make the roster, somebody would have some explaining to do.
    Marquise and Le Kevin are a different story.

    Do we really need 3 punters and Lonnie Paxton as a long snapper. We will probably not have to punt all season...:D

    QUICK HIT: Brown, the team's fourth-round pick, is the lone addition. He faces an uphill climb for a roster spot as this is one of the deepest positions on the roster.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they convert Brown into an ILB.

    Brown is 300 lbs. I don't think LB is in his future. ;)

    A 300 lb ILB? Umm I think he's strictly DE/DT material. Just a hunch.

    Exactly. Kevin Winter on 890 ESPN asked Larry Shannon about this yesterday. Shannon said no way a LB move would happen, Brown doesn't have the quickness and he is too big. Shannon also said he is a stout run defender that can free up LB's to make plays, Brown is a good pash rusher as well. Said he was their most consistent DL over the past two years.
