With Miller we have seen that this team is going to use a lot of 12 personal and run a lot of off tackle zone run plays...for that you need TEs who can block...there is a reason we signed Sims and drafted Shaheen both at around 270lbs...Miller's weakest part of his game is blocking and does he offer so much more as a #3/flex than Daniel Brown at a fraction of the cost and can he play special teams like Brown?... Houston is nothing more than a former somewhat big name free agent signing...I get we don't have much behind Floyd & Young at OLB with McPhee being hurt but that is no excuse for keeping a guy who is ineffective and being way overpaid for what he offers...he is a one tricky pony who can't line up anywhere else or play on teams...I would cut him tomorrow and bring in some UDFA at this point and give him a shot...then look for cuts around the league. Once Shaheen shows up I would be more willing to toss Miller. He also can flex out wide and with White, Cruz, Wheaton, and Wright all having sketchy to bad injury history we might need some flexibility. He at least offers something in the slot. With Houston his pay means nothing if we can't roll over his salary to me, just like Miller. I'd be content with low round picks, even a 7th though. To me he is just a body if/when McPhee goes down for whatever reason. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
