It was VERY difficult not to put Johnson on mine, I would not be surprised if we kept him at all, with our propensity to Nickel, I just could see him being the odd man out. Especially given the money we paid to Bradley..
I think that 3 man rotation was an aberration caused by the injuries to Warren and Hunter. Had Hunter not been injured it is likely that Wolfe would have been a bigger part of the DT rotation since he wouldn't have to play so many DE snaps and Warren was clearly slotted for a starter or key reserve role.
I think this year at least 4 players who are primarily DTs will be rotating with Wolfe kicking in from the DE spot on passing downs.
