    I think we are pretty solid at LB.

    Reever has to walk on somewhere. He keeps throwing out names of teams but none offer. Maybe a scout team prospect if he walks on.

    We have 2 returning starters but very very little if any proven talent besides those two. Brian West has potential as does Darius Ingram and Ken Hollis but that is 3 unproven players to fill one starting position and three backup spots. LB is our thinest position by far IMO. I would like for us to sign at least one more quality guy at LB this year.

    Lionel Turner and Eric Alexander were once unproven talent. You will always have unproven talent. Let them PROVE it. We will be fine. I'd say returning 2 of 3 starters is pretty damn good.

    every player is unproven talent until they show they can play but we don't even have good numbers of unproven talent at LB. We were very fortunate injury wise on the defensive side of the ball this year. We need at least two or three of those guys to step up NOW to give us depth, God forbid we have an injury or two.

    Someone will step up. No one thought Alexander would contribute the way he did. You were the one who brought up unproven talent, I was just saying that given the chance, someone will step up. While LB may not be our strongest link, it certainly isnt a weak one. We will be fine.

    don't forget Kirston

    Pittman could also step in at LB if needed!
