But he's shredded his shoulder twice in the past 3 years and it's taken a HUGE toll on his physical game. I've never been that enamored with his play defensively either. It's slightly above average but his foot speed hurts it especially with this defense core.

I hope we resign the guy in the off season at the same value and make him more of a specialist than a figure of the roster that he's been cast as lately.
I hope we sign him in July just to troll the rest of the league
