No way Whitehead makes $8M per. I'd be shocked... and I like the guy.

list of ILBs making $8M: Luke Kuechly, Bobby Wagner, Alec Ogletree, Mark Barron, Brian Cushing, Brandon Marshall.

You just got done saying..."he was a top 5-6 ILB in the NFL last year", but now you think it's crazy to assume he'll get paid like one. Burfict, Sean Lee and Telvin Smith make a buttload too.

One year and lots of flaws. He's a stopgap starter until proven otherwise.

Barron and Alec Ogletree were DC Wade Phillips' inside linebackers this past season, forming an undersized, but athletic, duo on the interior. The Rams were 22nd in run-defense DVOA and 28th in rush yards allowed, it's possible a change is made there. Barron carries a $10 million cap number for 2018, and the Rams can save $7 million by cutting him. http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/7497/mark-barron
Wouldn't this be interesting? :mrgreen:

Two terrible, overpaid players-- one of whom is playing out of position because he couldn't cut it as a safety-- is one reason the Rams were so bad vs the run.

You obviously don't believe Barron is a prospect for the Steelers SS/ILB role? Davis over the top at FS? I know Barron would want $$ and think he's out of their league financially, Wow..., ok.

I would take Barron as a dime LB... but that's a lot of money for that role. I don't buy Barron as a starting 3-4 ILB, though. You think that's crazy?

Nope. I think he's best suited in a 4-3. I agree about the money it would likely take. Wishful thinking I guess.
