Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

I guess we'll see how effective he can be on the inside. But damn if he isn't versatile as all hell. Offensive linemen, defensive lineman, special teams, linebacker, it appears the only thing he hasn't done yet is play an offensive skill position or in the secondary.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

I always felt LA would make a great inside run stuffer. I don't know how he will do in coverage. Regardless, the guy is just an animal. I hope he not only makes the transition but does so well enough to be a starter quality player.

Wish we had more guys like him. It would be hard to have too many.

He's like a nomad of positions.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

They need to give him at least one snap at QB during the preseason.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

Man I actually think this is great news. Loax in one of shanny's favorite players, being extremly high character, Hard working, and a team first kinda guy. Everybody wants Fletcher to mentor a rookie or wanted to bring in a veteran FA before we signed Fletcher. Now he have our own veteran for Fletcher to goom. During the lockout last year it was London and Loax calling players and organizing workouts, he's already a leader on the team and I hope he learns alot and develops well. Im sure Fletcher looks at Loax like a younger London both being a UDFA and fighting and clawing for their chance to play.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

He's going to play fullback before his career is over. He has done well every position he's tried, so I'm fine with this move.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

Fine move. We need to do more at ILB, though.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

love this, I thought last year they would've made this switch, he seems so much more suited to ILB than OLB.

On a side note, wonder what McIntosh is doing? He visited w/Miami but didn't sign as far as I know.

Former non-secondary Redskin players usually seem to have trouble finding work.

Re: Lorenzo Moving Inside

Like the move a lot, basically means that once Fletch retires, we'll have some good tape on him to see if he can replace Fletcher.
