Dupree doesn't deserve a new deal

Based on what? He's been pretty good at what they've asked him to do. He's far, far superior to Jarvis and, IIRC< thy picked up Jarvis's 5th year.

They did not pick up his option.

With respect to Dupree, maybe they ask him to drop back in coverage more because of what he can't do - get to the QB by beatng an OT. It's a bit of a chicken and egg thing.

B2B, you seem to be an advocate for Dupree, which is fine. But do you at least acknowledge his inconsistency to play the run? His lack of anything resembling a pass rush move? I just don't see how you can justify paying him almost 10M in 2019.

I think Dupree had the most TFL vs the run on the team this year.

Inconsistent? Yes. What they ask him to do... I have no idea. I know he dropped back a lot and I know he did beat OTs on occasion. I think they intentionally had him try to push the QB up into Heyward/Tuitt/Hargrave, which seemed to work. That's where a lot of their sacks came from. When he did run stunts, he did beat blockers and generate pressure.

I'm not an advocate, I'm just loathe to jump on the dogpile about anyone. I think it's reactionary and emotional-- not logical.

I think it's more likely they sign Dupree to a longer deal.

To reiterate:

FS
Coverage ILB
Burns
Regression of Hargrave
Tuitt health

All much, much more serious issues than Bud Dupree.

If they have bigger problems - which is a sad state
Or it's political
Or he is OK at some stuff doesn't mean he deserves a new contract
And doesn't mean he isn't a disappointment from expectations
His performance in the playoff game was very bad and IMO very soft

Entire defense seemingly wanted to see who could play like the bigger bitch that day.
