He's as big an addition as you could ask for on defense.
I agree. The FO has pretty much upgraded as much as they possibly could in the offseason (with the exception of NT). Hopefully the Defense can be special.

Mays is the starter.

1. You don't pay a guy $4M per year to sit the bench.
2. And you definitely don't pay a Mays $4M per year (for 3 years) if Irving had shown any indication that he could start at MLB in the NFL.
3. You also don't sign 2 UDFA's who can play MLB, if you thought Irving was starting MLB material.
