There were rumors floating around last season about Goethel taking the MIKE spot from McClain, but I don't remember if they were on blog posts or from contributors to this site. What I do remember is someone quoting an inside source to the effect of Goethel being better at shedding blocks and McClain being better suited outside.
But, I am pretty sure Goethel was getting reps mostly at WILL before destroying his knee. Either way, I am not putting any stock in a guy who has been injured most of the past two seasons.
I wish him the best, and we will see what TC yields.
Do not wait to strike till the iron is hot; but make it hot by striking.
Who is K Burnett?
Blackstock and Groves are UFA. I don't expect them to resign w/us.
Burnett (6-4, 238) didn’t become a starter at Nevada until his senior year and had to overcome a major hip injury in the spring just to get on the field at all.
In 13 games as a starter in 2011, he recorded 51 tackles, eight tackles for loss and five sacks.
Burnett was not invited to the combine, but turned some heads at Nevada’s Pro Day March 21 when he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds.
That has some teams thinking Burnett can stand up and play outside linebacker as well as be a defensive end in the NFL.
“I’m just showing teams my versatility in that I can stand up and play either a Sam or weak-side linebacker,” he said.
Kaelin’s brother, Kevin, is currently a linebacker for the Dolphins.
Btw Philip Wheeler not guaranteed a starting job. The Lb corp in 4-3 could be Wlb Miles Burris Mlb R Mcclain and Sslb A Curry
