I agree with putting Suh or Fairly outside sometimes. With big Corey Williams inside. And Willie young coming off the edge. That is a really stout d line in running situations, and Suh and Fairly still have good athleticism to rush the passer. I'd like to see Fairly come to work in great shape this year and be dominant.

Their problem isn't just size, KVB was 280lbs. They have problems stopping the run because they play two under tackles and don't have a nose tackle to clog a lane. Both Fairley and Suh can easily be redirected when penetrating the inside on rushing downs and it creates huge running lanes while allowing a Olineman to move to the second level. Corey Williams played the run a little better, but he is also more of an under tackle and he isn't even on the team currently since his contract expired.

Yeah I hope they resign Corey!
I also would like to see them get a beast DE at 5 in the draft.
If they choose to pass on OL.

I would rather we part ways with Corey... I'd rather have someone young and cheap in the DT rotation, maybe even two.

William Campbell late in the draft would be nice.

Have many teams courted him? Will he take a pay cut to stay?

He will, but he's still a tenured vet and he will cost $2+M I believe. He's not worth it, flat out, esp. coming off on an injury. We have holes in our starting lineup, we don't need to be over-paying our depth guys.

Yeah bummer.. Losing SLH doesn't soften the blow either.
Fairly needs to step up and play more snaps then.
