Gutless posted this in another thread. Probably needs its own.

This guy has been signed and waived alot.

Id say this is more of a reaction to Bradley getting hurt than Von.

The dude had some really good games. The Cardinals were very deep at LB so just because he got cut there doesn't mean he's a bad LB. I thought he was actually better then Bradley to be honest.

You've probably seen him more than any of us. It's a signing and he'll probably get some snaps.

He wasn't a bad LB, so they cut him, went out and signed Dansby and Jasper Brinkley, drafted Minter...

And at no time reached out to Lennon.

If it were from AZ's offense I'd agree but their defense has been decent the last couple of years. For having to find someone this late I'd say this is a good find. Just hope he's got something left after 11 years.

If he was such an integral part of the defense, why did they cut him, add two in free agency and draft a MLB?

Probably cause he's getting AARP? That age at QB you can get away with. At MLB? Not so much.

Dude, he's played 11 seasons. Not 16. Ray Lewis was still very much a dominating LB in season 12. If our bigs up front can be solid, Lenon will work out just fine. I don't know why he's played for so many teams. I don't know why AZ cut him. All I know is I watched about 12 full Cardinal games last year and he played well. I don't think you get 103 tackles playing like crap.

I have no idea, but if you reread my response it was about AZ defense, not necessarily Lenon, although Lenon has been a decent player, no Von, but decent. I'll take 103 combined tackles.

AZ's defense had an incredible scheme. I think it will show this year and will show in Cleveland. Ray Horton is a very very good DC. That attacking defense mixed with some capable players went along way. They weren't statistically dominant and actually ranked middle of the pack in overall D.

After losing Horton, if the new regime felt he was an important component, they would have kept him for mentoring younger players. They also may have reached out to him after Washington's pending suspension. Instead, they signed a player who has been a bust thus far in his career, they signed a unexpectedly available stud ILB, and still drafted a young player. But they did not bring him back, and by all reports had no interest.

And no other team signed him in free agency..

Problem is there wasn't much out there in terms of ILB..
