Default Pisa Tinoisamoa Released by Rams

I think it would be a good idea for the Broncos to sign this player to compete at linebacker. Does anyone know anything about his character?

Travis LaBoy is the linebacker from Hawaii who makes more sense. Experienced OLB in the 3-4. I would think Nolan would be familiar with him since he played in Arizona last year.

He's too small. True we have DJ and Woodyard who are also too small for a 3-4 but adding more players like them would not make since.

I don't think there is much chance he'd beat out DJ and Davis for the starting inside jobs, and he'd probably have a fight with Woodyard or Larsen. If we're talking long term depth I'd rather keep Lee Robinson as a long term developmental type.

Don't see a fit for him here myself, unless he can somehow play SOLB.

edit: thanks Cut.

I think you mean Larsen.

You know he's probably a decent linebacker, but they only thing Broncos should look for are real OLB that can play in a 3-4. We have Boss Bailey also who runs what 240?

That's enough 230-240 guys. I think though Larsen, Davis in a different boat because they do have some size inside.

But Broncos will be looking for players to play a 3-4 supposedly. This is what Pro Football Weekly thinks of him.

Although he played as hard as any player in the league and was often very productive, the player affectionately nicknamed “Hawaii 5-0” was always a square peg in a round hole because of his smallish stature. Listed at 6-1, 235, but with a playing weight closer to 220 last season, not only was he often overpowered by bigger blockers, Tinoisamoa was also more susceptible to injuries, missing a combined 12 games in 2006 and ’07 due to a host of different injuries.

He managed to stay healthy last season, but with the decision shortly after the season to move LB Will Witherspoon from the middle to the weak side, Tinoisamoa suddenly appeared to be a player without a position. At the Rams’ first minicamp, he showed up as the starter on the strong side, leading close observers to believe that perhaps his hustle and relentlessness was enough of a selling point to convince the team’s new regime that he could get the job done, despite seeming very undersized for that role.


Notice they say closer to 220 pounds. There is no logical reason for another Woodyard. We have the small tenacious linebacker role solved with woodyard. Now if a good 250 pound SSL comes available, one who could play in the 3-4 by showing the ability to not only hold the edge on strong side, but also hang with the avg TE I would be all for it.

Seriously though where would he play? We don't need another weakside linebacker. In fact with 3-4 on the way we don't need any weakside linebackers. We need big pass rushing OLB, and big physical inside linebackers.
