Quick Out, May 17, 2013 [Updated]
This just in from Nakia Hogan over at Nola.com: outside rush linebacker Martez Wilson, the Saints’ own version of Barkevious Mingo, “is being used as the strong side outside linebacker…”
Follow along with me here. Yes, that ’backer does sometimes cover the tight end, and it’s important that he be able to cover the tight end. But that ’backer also sometimes gets blocked by the tight end—usually a big guy, and usually a practiced blocker. So the Sam ought to be the bigger and stronger of your outside linebackers.
And that’s Junior Galette, not Martez Wilson.
