It's tough to tell, the entire line is rebuilt. His impact would be tough to assess. Also, as inconsistent as his motor was, he could well have dropped off the face of the planet as soon as he got his new contract and had nothing left to prove. Losing Thomas Davis was another big blow. I like that we have a stable of young defensive ends that all have the potential to become pretty good pass rushers, but they haven't shown anything yet. And a defensive tackle would be a godsend at this point. Or another corner...it's a long list right now.
