    Ted or his defensive scouts have done an overall poor job. Hopefully a few teams that are loaded on defensive line will put a few guys on practice squads or release them. There will be at least some who don’t make other teams that will be better than what we got. Remember when we got Gilbert Brown after he was released from the Vikes. Ted must swallow his pride and go get some D Line help.
