Erin Henderson had a solid year at weakside linebacker for the Vikings. At just 26, he has a bright future ahead of him.
Leroy Hill, OLB, Seahawks. Age: 29. Re-signed with Seahawks (1 year)
Leroy Hill, bastard of Lannisport, is a three-down weakside linebacker with no liabilities, save for health. He was always injury-prone, but made it through unscathed in 2011. He'll be 30 on Sept. 14.
Manny Lawson, OLB, Bengals. Age: 28. Re-signed with Bengals
As expected, Manny Lawson thrived in the 4-3. He was a stout run defender as a two-down strongside linebacker in Cincinnati's stop unit.
Rocky McIntosh, OLB, Redskins. Age: 29. Signed with Rams
I called Rocky McIntosh an idiot for re-signing with the Redskins last offseason. He's not a good fit in the 3-4. I don't get how he didn't understand that. Maybe he'll learn his lesson and sign on with a 4-3 team.
Phillip Wheeler, OLB, Colts. Age: 27. Signed with Raiders (1 year)
Phillip Wheeler is a pretty solid two-down weakside linebacker who thrives in run support. The Colts should re-sign him.
@DTG bortles was not "great" in 2015. he's the king of the garbage time stats. if he were "great", he'd have his team in at least a position to win most games. he's the reason why they usually are out of games ..
@anon walts love affair with seattle is no joke. Any time seattle loses jt was a fluke but he hates atl as much as he loves seattle. Any time atl wins its some excuse but when atl loses its becsuse he called it. Sad really. He must be a seattle fan and saints fan.
