Sure, he went undrafted, but I think we have to look differently at this past draft- it was one of the deepest in years. He is at least worth a look in training camp as a SOLB. May be one of those acorns the trifecta discovers? Thoughts?

Kid ran a 4.9 40 and he's always injured. We have plenty of young linebackers in camp for a change.

Fantastic! Thanks guys! I especially appreciate your valuable insight, PhinsPhan11. Now we can go back to talking about hating the Jets, Henne vs Sanchez, what Brandon Marshall had for breakfast, or a thousand other useless topics.

He ran a 4.9 due to knee surgery. I get that he's been injured in the past, but who hasn't? I'm not saying go sign him, I'm merely saying "due diligence." I do however agree that we have a lot of linebackers in camp, for a change.

I said that because for once we have enough linebackers in camp, so I don't think that we need any more. If we sign him great, if not it's not the worst thing in the world.

Fair enough. Thanks for explaining the reasoning behind your original post.

That's fine, I guess my first post wasn't that clear.

He was cut by a team in desperate need of an ILB, that says a lot. Add to that he's a talented kid who could of went in the 3rd round if healthy, but went undrafted. Basically, I think his injury is worse than people think. he won't be able to play this upcoming season imo. I wouldn't be opposed to signing him and then maybe stashing him on the IR, but I doubt that's going to happen.

I have always liked Micah Johnson but i think we are solid at ILB right now and that is what he is he isnt a SOLB

I like him, I think he's got that ferocious mentality that everyone wants in their linebackers, but we're pretty stacked at linebacker now.
