Fewell's response when asked how he would envision using his
linebackers gave you the idea that he really doesn't know the answer right now.
"I think it's important to see where guys fit with other guys... if we can
play different combinations. That's kind of what we would like to do. That gives
us an array of coverages, of pressures, of defenses that we would like to run.
We'll try some different combinations that we will experiment with during the
OTAs," Fewell said. "We're experimenting a little bit because with the addition
of Rivers, obviously, we've gotten more athletic and we think we're a little
better at linebacker now."
Here is my best guess at what the linebacker depth chart looks like right
now, with Fewell having revealed that second-year player Greg Jones is being
moved to the outside and Adrian Tracy
will play defensive end.
-- Michael Boley
, Jake Muasau
[Rivers may eventually fit in here as well].
, Greg Jones, Clint Sintim
[The Giants might also have the option of moving someone like Herzlich out here,
but that has not been mentioned].
All 10 of these guys are not making the roster. It should be very interesting
to see how this shakes out, and which combinations Fewell and head coach Tom
Coughlin utlimately decide are their best ones."
