Give Up a Third For Morrison?

The Raiders have placed a third round tender on linebacker Kirk Morrison, meaning the Silver and Black would receive a third round pick as compensation should someone sign him to an offer sheet, and they refuse to match.

The Giants have a hole at middle linebacker. And while some think that Karlos Dansby is the answer, I reject that notion. You’re going to end up overpaying for him. And, to top if off, I think he’s better suited as an outside linebacker.  Enter Morrison. He is a tackling machine. 133 last year. 135 the year before. And he’s been in that range his whole career (his lowest total is 116, his rookie season). Dansby, on the other hand,  had 109 tackles last season, with his highest being 119.

I think Morrison is the answer. He’ll be cheaper than Dansby. And, I think he’s better than Dansby.

    I have no problem with Morrison, I don’t see how you can say he’s better than Dansby, but he isn’t too far off that I wouldn’t mind the monetary savings involved in acquiring him, as long as they’re able to sign Rolle or someone else in the secondary first.
