What a bummer.

I wonder if ten million over two years would have gotten him?

This  means that, almost certainly,  we are going with a rookie at OLB.

Which leads to the question of, what is going to be our depth at the position?

I don't there were a lot of teams really that interested in Barwin...including the Packers.

A $6.5M contract suggests there was interest.

From what I understand, he went with a previous coach he really liked.

Huh-  ??? ?

Did something happen to Mathews, Perry, Elliot or Fackrell?

We're certainly going to draft at least 1 and maybe 2 OLBs.  Losing Peppers and Jones was significant as the depth we had behind those 2 is almost nonexistent. Jones played a lot of our early down snaps due to his ability in support of the run.  Not sure who is going to fill that role next season.  With CM3 getting moved back into the middle substantially more, we've got major issues at OLB.
