Clowney isn’t a player that can play inside in a 3-4 like Williams. Williams plays a lot of 3 and 4 technique. Lawrence is 0 or 1. Sometimes Williams even plays the 2. Clowney is more of a 5 technique or even standing up on the edge as wide as 6 coming off the edge. One cat replace the other.
Interesting signing. It gives us 4 decent DT WITHOUT Williams. Is the handwriting on the wall. For all those who want Williams out and Clowney in, this could open the door to that.
half joking but Clowney has more injuries than sacks as a 5 tech....that sad. He looks big and bad and sometimes plays that way but he gets injured so damn much. Dude is desperate to get a long term deal cuz he knows his body is breaking down...has been for a while.

If they trade Tomlinson in order to keep Williams, or because of this signing, I'll be irate. Tomlinson is one of the best defensive players they have and he's still on his rookie contract. It makes no sense to trade him. Get rid of Williams and free up 16M instead for a lesser player.
Tomlinson, Hill and Lawrence were extremely weak against the Run before Williams is added. Tomlinson seemed to play much better after Williams. So what's going on here beats me. Austin is a high a second round who never started, that's akin to a bust. It's a one-year deal, so if he's productive you going to have to pay him or Tomlinson next year, but unlikely both. Meantime, he's likely in competition with RJ McIntosh and Chris Slayton. He has a close relationship with his old coach at Penn State and I believe is involved with commercial Ventures. So maybe his old coach thinks he can get something out of him

frateb: man, for a second i thought detroit was going to pull this one out... i think that would have given us a chance to get as low as 2nd again?

rodney27: You're right about the fumbling problem, tl65taog. I just don't think it can be fixed. He had in preseason, has it at a record pace now, and had the same problem at Duke. If he hasn't fixed it in all that time...I just don't know if he can.

tl65taog: yes the fumbling problem has to be fixed, but you have to be fair about it
