According to the great and powerful Omar,
"I find it a bit interesting that Dolphins DE Kendall Langford led the defensive linemen in quarterback pressures in 2012" (pretty sure it was the 2011 season Omar, considering they only played 1 actual game in 2012) BUT Langford was taken off the field on most passing downs. He was in a contract year, and sacks mean big salary. Yes.....I'm hinting at a conspiracy. Why would you take the guy who leads your team in quarterback pressures off the field regulary on passing downs? Just sayin"
I was thinking to myself yesterday, would the Dolphins really miss Langford if he leaves via FA? I know the 3-4 defense is not about the DL getting sacks and Langford was a "good run stopper", BUT i watch every Dolphin game and the guy just was never an "impact" player that you saw just blow up a play in the backfield, maybe once or twice a season, and im not even talking about sacks, he is just not in the backfield THAT much to warrant a big $ contract
He is actually coming off his worst season statistically with a career low 20 tackles, 15 solo, 0 sacks, 1 FF, 1 PD
Going back to what Omar said, maybe he was taken out on passing downs because thats as far as he can go, "pressuring" the QB, not actually getting to him, again i know 3-4 DE not supposed to be a sack master, but ZERO sacks in 16 games? let alone his career high is 3, Langford is a big slow run stuffer who does not "dominate" his job and IMO is not worth the big $ and hopefully a switch back to a 4-3 or a hybrid defense with more emphasis on a 4-3 scheme is going to be implimented
