How is adding a LB who would play every down and massively improve an area of severe weakness a poor utilization of resources?
Von's a unique player who is neither a DE nor a pure LB, but his best work comes rushing the passer. Whatever you want to call him, it's a straight up fact that when we go nickel he plays as a lineman. Leaving 2 LB spots, only one of which is manned competently.
I've plenty of players I'd take over Willis, but you really need to stop beating this drum. It's making you look very silly.
