    and it only cost them a swap of 3rd rounders and a fourth. While he's had a bit of the injury bug, seems like a really low cost for a 27 year old LB who is a beast.

    He's coming off a blown up knee and he didn't suit the Texans 3-4 Defense he was better off in the 4-3, plus he had a pretty hefty salary which the Texans now have room to sign other guys as well.

    Good, hopefully this pushes Keuchly and Upshaw a little further down the board and into range for NE.

    The only reason must be because he wasn't great in their new 3-4 D

    That's right. He'll play up to his contract in a 4-3. Certain players just seem to only play well in certain schemes. I would love to hear some in-depth analysis on why this is.
