Because Klein is a depth player and whoever replaces him is only of the field like 30% of the time. The Sam backer isn’t a starter here and you don’t pay one to be a starter.

 

Find that guy in tier 2/3 or the draft. 
 

Jack is a Mike backer who would replace Edmunds 

Rotate them, that is a lot of strength in the LB corp if they decide to do that.

Right, but there weren't any rumors of a LB like Jack being available either.  We all believed that Barclay would be our backup QB last year, until the moment they announced they were signing Trubisky

If you're on the worst defense in the NFL anything is possible. Edmunds can't be released.

Remember he had medical concerns coming out of the draft that could affect his longevity. Are those still accurate? Think one of the main reasons he dropped to the 2nd round. Teams weren't expecting him to be much of a contributor past his rookie deal.

Wonder if he would

consider buffalo and being a role player for a year.

Knee right?? He had a lot of knee issues that kept him from being like a top 10 pick

One is the run stuffing DT we just signed, one is our MLB. People are crazy. Keep improving the DL. Edmunds will have a great season.

 

 


The defensive and offensive line could be off the field completely and the ball starts in the runningbacks hands, and Edmunds will still hesitate, not making the tackle behind the line of scrimmage

30%  Once they decided to keep T Johnson in pretty much every play, Klein went down to less than 5% other than mop up duty.  Agree though we don't need him

Even if you’re on Team Tremaine, you gotta admit that $12.7m is too much with all the Middle Linebackers on the market right now.  

 

Yes but it's fully guaranteed so unless they can trade him, they are on the hook for that amount.  They could extends him to lower the cap hit, but if that happens then they are still committed to him and Edmunds, 2 LBs on relatively new contracts and the only ones that play when healthy so why do we need another?  Agree with other posts, likely can see them drafting another.

We need someone to upgrade over Klein. How is this not a need?

 

They should not need to pay average dollars to a SAM to replace Klein who'll play less than 50% of the snaps.  The base defense is practically a 4-2-5 anyway.

BS. 

 

It isn't BS.  Here's a list of tackles for loss last year.  If you want to see Edmunds, get that scrolling finger warmed up ... https://www.teamrankings.com/nfl/player-stat/defense-tackles-for-loss
