Could we be leaving the 3-4 base defense?

    The fact that we ignored LB's on draft day makes me think it's a possibility. Or maybe the team thinks what we have is better than what we could have drafted?

    People also seem to forget there is this thing called free agency. We could possibly bring in another LB or DT via FA.

    I think it’s more than just numbers of players. The DE in a 4-3 is different than Cam Heyward’s style

    3-4? 4-3? It's hybrid. Can't say that were short on Safeties though...

    Nobody plays base defense anymore, to quote tomlin. Its situational football almost every play

    They play sub packages around 65% of the time.
