Should We Pick Kenard Lang up for DE help?

http://www.nfl.com/teams/story/CLE/9260639

In his last season playing on the DL (for Cleveland) he had great numbers, its only when they moved him to linebacker that his numbers went to crap. Plus I always liked him and he might be cheap

Dude is 31 now, I'd rather see the Skins go with a youth movement, we've already got our share of DE's on the wrong side of 30.

at the right price ?? absolutely !! he is better than wynn and can play almost every one of the d line positions plus outside backer. his versatility would be utilized well by williams.

he is a high motor high character guy.

sign him plus draft a def lineman in the 2nd or 3rd round and we are set

Re: Should We Pick Kenard Lang up for DE help?

the only way i would want him is if they got him for minimum salary, which i doubt will happen so i dont want him

he's too old and we need someone who is better at pass rushing than Lang

Lang is a very similar player to Wynn and Daniels if you ask me.

Lang was never a premium pass rusher, he was a decent all around player who had some good years but at 31 I'd pass and look elsewhere.

Ditto........I'm sick of constantly looking to mediocre past-their-prime guys to solve our problems on the D-Line.

Re: Should We Pick Kenard Lang up for DE help?

we had him once, and I dont think adding him back to the roster is all that great of a move, unless its for depth purpose only. I believe he would have the same production as the other two ends we have Daniels and wynn.

except look what denver accomplished with 3/4th of the cleveland line. they were excellent last year.
agree we need a mix but i think that lang is an upgrade over wynn and can play better in space than either daniels or wynn.
how much better would the skins have been with lang playing the position lavar played onthird downs last year? at least lang has proven he can rush the passer. 2 years ago he had 8 sacks for cleveland playing de..

The point is, if he's an upgrade at all, he'll be marginal. And we're not in need of another marginal pass rusher. We need someone who can be disruptive and explode off the ball - Kenard Lang isn't that guy.

LaVar played the bench on 3rd downs, so I dont think we are going to bring lang in to take that position. LaVar had that down pretty damn well.

bring him back, with the hopefull trade for Abraham that line rotation would be off the hook! With Lavar hopefully healthy and still on the team that d would be off the hook!

Re: Should We Pick Kenard Lang up for DE help?

I always loved his attitude. They had him beef up and play tackle, then cleveland made him slim down and play lb and he never complains. If the price was low he would be a decent insurance policy if our other avenues did not pan out. I agree he isn't the answer, though.

Does anyone else remember the game that he put forth such an effort that he got a standing ovation when they finally pulled him from the game? What game was that?

Re: Should We Pick Kenard Lang up for DE help?

I would want him back just to take Wynn's place as a cheaper version of Renaldo Wynn. And so that I can once again proudly display the autographed 4x6(?) I have of him...lol
