Read here from Greg Bedard. Bedard talks about the back injury to Brad Jones opening up a new-look LB group. He says that the line-up being used from left to right was Matthews, Barnett, Bishop, Chillar. Several curious things about this. One is that Matthews played ROLB last year, rarely if ever playing on the left as far as I remember. And, there is no mention of Hawk. I think these are the 4 best LBs the team has. Of course, I don’t like it that Brad Jones is hurt and I still do believe he has potential at least. But if Chillar gets the chance at OLB, we’ll find that he will be more effective than Jones.
Another curious thing is that Hawk was not part of this group. It appears as though Bishop is finally pushing his way into the conversation here and I’m hopeful this translates into some more playing time this year for the guy.
