Harris is a solid LB. The problem is he is being paid like an elite player when he isn't one. He is great against the run but is a liability in pass coverage. The only way I trade him is if we get a few draft picks in return in the 2-4 rounds range.
Does anyone know his value? He's being paid a ton. Could the Jets get a 3rd for him? And if they did, they'd have to replace him. Why bother when we have so many needs? Does anyone ever consider such acts when making these poorly thought-out threads?
As far as ILB always leading teams in tackles. Thats so far from reality its not funny.
Olb's can lead in tackles
Chad Greenway (Minn)
Jerod Mayo (NE)
Safeties can lead in tackles
Morgan Burnett (GB)
Bernard Pollard (Bal)
MLB/ILB have a higher % of team tackles because thats what they do. If you dont have a solid MLB/ILB then your team is usually not good on the defensive side of the ball.
Saying David Harris leads the team in tackles is like saying Mark Sanchez leads the team in turnovers.
