Its KFFL (which I find to be generally reliable) so take from it what
you will, but it seems to me that though a "tackling machine", as some
have put it, he's not a Nickle type LB (obviously not many Mikes are...)
and we already have a guy like that named Goff. Didn't he have a ton of
tackles the year before he got hurt?

Obviously we dont know how hes gonna come back, but I dont know that we
need a "sexy" FA pickup for a guy thats gonna be subbed by Prince, T2,
or Ross while leaving in JWil and Boley on passing downs anyway.

Atlanta Falcons (http://www.kffl.com/team/7/nfl/atlanta-falcons) defensive coordinator Mike Nolan (http://www.kffl.com/player/8290/nfl/mike-nolan) wants to remove LB Curtis Lofton (http://www.kffl.com/player/18327/nfl/curtis-lofton)
out of the team's "sub" third-down coverage schemes,<font size="5"> as he is seen as a
liability in third-down situations. </font>Re-signing the superb two-down
linebacker is a priority for the team, however. Lofton is scheduled to
become an unrestricted free agent March 13.</p><div style="overflow: hidden; color: rgb(0, 0, 0); background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); text-align: left; text-decoration: none; border: medium none;">

I'm not interested in FAs, and especially higher profile ones.

Our LB play has improved immensely. We may not have a standout stud / pro-bowler, but we're good enough, finally, and actually have depth with Kiwi, Boley, Goff (he will return), Blackburn, J.Williams, and Herz.

If we draft a LB as BPA, then fine. But no FAs.
