Something interesting to note about Brian Flores' defensive tendencies... In 2021, Miami Dolphins safeties rushed the passer *200 times*. By far the most in the NFL.

Harrison Smith used to be very good at this, but he was only sent on 14 pass rushing snaps this season.

200? Insanity

It’s somewhat misleading because Flores likes to use a lot of sub-packages, including packages that utilize a 3rd safety. 

And if Cine comes back healthy, there will be plenty of opportunities to run with 3 safeties.

Frankly, I don't get the idea of playing a LB on 3rd and more than 4 or so.....should be all safeties and CBs.

other than if it's a short pass to a TE, you might need a bigger guy to bring him down. but i get your point.

alright, smart guys...

tell me about Xavien Howard and whether we should go after him, and if so can he be afforded?



On April 1, 2022, Howard signed a new five-year contract with $50.691 million in new money.

We talked about it in another thread:

Doesn't sound very feasible.

A lot of linebackers are indeed safety's wearing numbers in the 50's.  

Thinking of someone like Asamoh here. Seems like someone like him is probably a Safety in the 90s, but in todays nfl, seems  he’s more of an oversized safety just playing LB.
