Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
If we ran a defense like Arizona where we just let him pin his ears back and rush the passer on every play and let him walk I would have been much more annoyed. What he was asked to do here seemed to wear him down physically as the season went on and he seemed to fizzle out. He was always a good player here but he was an elite pass rusher with Arizona because they let him do the one thing he is really good at and stripped away the other things we had him doing. I will always get somewhat annoyed when we hit on a draft pick then don't sign him to a second contract but this one I understood.
