What do we have in this guy? He was second in the NFL in special teams tackles this year and has look okay against the run in the limited chances he was given. If we don't find a stud LB in the offseason, does anyone want to see this guy given a chance?

He got 140 or so snaps on defense this year. About 13% of the total snaps.

He made a couple plays, but doesnt look like a starter to me. A situational player. But he is very valuable on STs along with Tyler Sash. Neither of them, IMO, are future starters.

we haven't had a stud LB in a decade now, we only have serviceable LBs, Paysinger may be another one of those serviceable LB. Te'o looks like he may be one of those stud LB unfortunately for another team.

That about sums it up. He's a great special teamer, but likely won't ever be much more than a back-up on defense.

I have no idea, to be honest with you. Seems like a decent special teamer (that's basically what Reese looks for in his linebackers).

i actually like Paysinger a lot..I think he has the most upside out of any of the linebackers on the team besides for Jacquain Williams when hes healthy. I think Paysinger is more athletic than Herz or Blackburn and would be a better SLB than anyone we currently have on the team
