While I am fully aware of Shawne's history of injury and lack of production, don't you think he might be an upgrade compared to the broke down LB Corp we currently have. While I am also aware that we run a 4-3 and he is coming from a 3-4, maybe the transition to a new style of defence is what he needs. Fresh team, fresh defence, fresh start. Plus Shawne can not really be expecting that much in compensation or can he?
