Interesting guy for depth.
Has basically ideal measureables with 6'5", 255, 4.54 40, 3.84 3-cone, and 32 reps. Tore his ACL in 2010 and was not good last season. If he can get all of that athleticism back again, then he could be a really good fit at OLB. Had 12 sacks in his first two years.
Interesting. He'd be an OLB in a 3-4, maybe taking a look for sub packages? He had 7 sacks a few years ago
I recall he had a good game against the Pats the year Cassel was the QB.
Two sacks in that game.
That would fit the Pats' MO of bringing in guys who played well against them
Re: SMY reporting Trevor Scott is visiting the Pats
Before he got hurt, he was a real good pass rusher. Good burst off the snap and he had some good moves. Blew out his knee on a cheapshot on special teams. If his knee is all the way back, he can help out the pass rush. That being said, he is real weak against the run. Lots of trouble setting the edge. Teams would run at him all day with the Raiders.
That's likely the FO's thinking.
The knee ligaments usually take two years to regain full neuromuscular effciency, i.e. fluid movement.
He wouldn't cost much and could be a steal if his health remains.
That was last year.
Yup. Realized my mistake and deleted my post. Sorry about that.
This is a poor man's Mark Anderson.
This would be the role Mark Anderson over-performed in last year, ringing up 10 sacks coming in opposite Carter on third down. And could be an indication the Patriots might not pay Anderson in 2012.
Oh, awesome. I've been following Scott from afar for a while, now, and I've often wished we could bring him aboard. He seems like the kind of player who could really develop under BB. Low risk, high upside; hope they sign him pronto.
He was a good high motor pass rusher pre-injury. I remember watching him and thinking he played a lot like Aaron Schobel. And he has the size and athleticism to possibly convert to OLB. He'd be really good value if he regains his athleticism back.
Low risk high reward Typical BB MO.
I love rooting for these kind of guys. I hope he signs with us, take in the coaching and show the nfl what he's capable of.
yeah, these are the types of guys BB goes after, when they work out they can work out big, ie Rodney harrison.
he'll sign a few solid players like Fanene and a couple guyes like Scott and see what sticks.
Hopefully the guy has something to prove and the Pats give him the opportunity to do it.
Nice, hard working kid from the University of Buffalo. Not a star but can definitely provide pressure. He could be a solid player in the right system.
BB kicking his tires to see how well healed he is.....low risk with a possible high reward if he signs......
Would still love to see Anderson re-signed for a fair deal tho
Could you perchance provide what you would consider a fair deal?
I'd rather they not overpay him a la the Tully Banta Cain fiasco...
