I feel that would maximize the talent we have. bailey could drop his weight back down, he looks like a natural 4-3 LE. catapano would be a natural 4-3, 3 tech behind Donald. DeVito would add nice depth behind poe. hali could play RE opposite side bailey If we couldn't sign jared allen. I do kind of wonder about Houston at SAM though.
Switch to Seattle's defense or copy the Patriots hybrid D. Houston would be fine as a DE, flop him and Hali and we should be golden. The only thing we would lack for that defense is a pair of good OLBs. We would have to bring a couple of guys in via FA and then draft 1 or 2 to develop/push for a starting role.
