Ideally, yes. I'm probably the biggest Bailey homer on the board. However, that won't stop me from thinking we should try and upgrade the 3-tech. The base front for a 1-gap is a 5-tech, shaded 1, and then a 3-tech. So either Bailey plays full time in the 3 (ideal for him IMO) or full time in the 5 barring a draft pick.
This team definitely needs to upgrade at least 2X at ILB and probably obtain another OLB for depth, in addition to getting depth on the 3-tech, and in the secondary.
****, this team has way more holes than I had anticipated 5 months ago. Back to the Bombay
We do not choose our destinies. Yet we must...we must do our duty, no? Great or small, we must do our duty.
