    i'm not opposed to him coming back, but they need someone better to rotate with him.

    If Tuitt comes back, then Loudermilk, Adams, and Wormley are more than good enough for a rotation. If Tuitt can't, then we have to deal with that.

    i'd like to see them pick up Sebastain Joseph-Day from the rams. dude can play NT and DE. he is quietly become one of the best run stuffing Dlinemen in the league and is developing as a pass rusher. with this one signing our dline woes could end. i dont know what his market value is, but he is 27 and just finishing his rookie deal and the rams are not in a good cap situation. i also wouldnt mind if they peeked at a few other ram players. CB darius williams and guard austin corbett.

    adams is better than buggs or davis and made some nice plays, but not enough., we have gotten a pretty good look at him. has he slowed our rushing defenses bleeding when he is in ? nope. is he the guy you want if tyson gets injured again ? do you want him as a starter when tyson is gone based on what we have seen ?

    naw i just noticed on a few plays that loudermilk looked like an old school 2 gapper, holding up the block forcing the RB to commit to a hole and then crashing down on him.

    Well that's good because he has a big frame and hopefully can bulk up.

    The man is a legit 6'8" I've heard. Now he knows what type of functional strength he needs at the NFL level. The worry was that he was too tall and would lose out on leverage.

    Man if he can put some strength on and get out there with Alualu or Tuitt with Heyward! You think Heyward knocks passes down, that line would make chipping Watt a real problem!

    I’m glad to hear he’s returning and with intention to go out strong!!!!

    Great locker room guy probably. He and Heywards influence on Loudermilk should be tremendous.

    Imagine the DL room of Heyward, Alualu, Tuitt, Wormley, Loudermilk and Adams. Nice rotation and leadership and mentorship for a couple quality PS Dlineman.

    Great that he intends to come back, hopefully they get Tuitt back as well. If so, that’s a good defensive line with some depth

    It really can’t be overstated what a killer it was to lose that pair this past season

    I thought Adams played solid obviously better then Davis and the former Steeler Buggs. The nose occupies usually 2 offensive lineman Then our invisible ILBers are supposed to shoot the gaps. Fail on a consistent basis.

    Adams is a nice piece to have but yes they need to have another quality Nose/DT even with Alualu coming back.

    The bigger story is Tuitt. I don't think he is coming back and if he does will his heart be in it? Loudermilk and Wormley are playing above the line which is a positive.

    Tomlin's team is so reliant on star power that any top starter going down is devastating. "Next man up" is a fiction.

    I agree, all the experience Wormley and Loudermilk got this year will pay off next year.

    If Alualu and Tuitt are back we are set, but if not (especially Alualu), I think we need to go into the draft and get a DT/NT early.
