Linebackers are some of the most feared positions, with talents like DeMarcus Ware, Ray Lewis, James Harrison, and Karlos Dansby. Linebackers have the ability to change an game in its entirety, whither its stopping an third-down conversion, touchdown, or intercepting an ball and returning it for six.
This year, the talent has sky rocketed.
Ray Lewis is an absolute beast, racking over 1,000 solo tackles, 28 ints, and 33.5 sacks (226 yards loss), in his career, and he isn't slowing down any time soon with 117 tackles this year.
I'm looking for him to stay in Baltimore, but I looked around and found that the Dallas Cowboys are interested in him.
With Suggs already franchised, and Ray Lewis probably going to get a contract for the rest of his career its hard to see Scott fitting. He is an quality linebacker, but has struggled in recent years.
With only one sack and 80 tackles I will look for him getting an mediocre contract for one or two years just to see if he can get all gears turning and bring his 100 tackle, nine-sack career back.
Mike Peterson my be getting a little rusty and haven't had a good season since 2005, also now with small issues on the field his value just shot down.
I'm looking froward to see what he will do with his career, but right now it just look as to me he should be a backup or just retire.
Jonathan Vilma has bung his career back with 132 tackles team are going to be lining up left and right.
With the Saint hiring Dan Morgan its interesting to see what the Saints are going to do, since they won't (unless giving up an first round pick) sign him 'til free agency.
Eric Barton is putting up his career numbers again, but with age being an factor, now he is entering the last run of an mediocre year.
Channing Crowder is coming off a great season in which he recorded 113 tackles. However, he has bad knee history that could become an factor. Also he is best year came in his contract season.
