    I am curious if the trifecta has any interest in bringing in Kevin Burnett a LB they drafted out of Tennessee when they worked for Dallas.

    I believe he is 6-3 250 I know he played in dallas nickle defense,but not sure if he's an OLB or ILB eitehr way he could be an upgrade.

    He is actually something like 227.

    Can an expert here explain this to me (calling CK)? Parcells likes size. He wants LBs that are 245 at the LEAST. How did Kevin Burnett get drafted in the second round? Its baffling to me.

    If we signed or drafted a 230 pound LB this year, my jaw would drop. Seriously, I dont even research guys under 240 because I figure they're not even on our board.

    Actually, he is listed at 6'3 227.

    Bizarre, I know.

    I like him alot. I can see him playing for us next year. He is a bonafide R. Torbor.

    I don't know where you're looking, but he's officially listed at 242 by the NFL.

    They're incorrect then. Coming out of college he was 239 pounds, four years ago. And he definately didn't lose weight to play in Dallas' 3-4.

    every player loses weight during the season. it's entirely possible he was playing at 227 towards the end.
