I loved Nevis and Roh. Unsung heroes, but of course Willie is tops on the list, and now we have him.

As good as Nevis was and as good as it is to have a strong DT presence, it's also one of the easiest places to hide a weaker NAT or rookie import.

Agreed. and if the roster move was to let someone go, so we could offer and get Jefferson, so be it. I hope Nevis signs with us, but heck, we have Richardson and he brought a load last year, and we have Jake Thomas to rotate in, and I am thinking between Jeffcoat, Jefferson and Roh, they'll rotate a DE into the middle to inject more speed in the interior, like they did last year, so maybe losing Nevis and replacing him with someone else, isn't the end of the world, as I'd rather have this situation vs signing Nevis and losing Jefferson.

Losing Nevis will hurt.  He is an amazing player.  Doesn't get the pay or respect he deserves.  Hope that comes for him this year.  I wish him the best of luck and thank him for his time here.

I totally disagree, Nevis got nothing but respect from the fans in Winnipeg.

One of my favorite plays, loved watching him crush QB's and B-slap OL's.

I am not ultra confident that Thomas and Griffiths can adequately replace Nevis, but I feel better knowing that we have Bighill to clean up the mess.

Griffiths is such an unknown at this point, I can't recall him ever taking a single snap.  Chances are he's not near ready to challenge Jake for his job yet, never mind step in and replace a power-plug like Nevis.

I?m thinking...
- Richardson is the one replacing Nevis (which could be little to no drop off...or even possible improvement)
- Thomas & Griffiths will share the snaps Richardson would have taken - if Nevis was still here.

How much more Thomas plays & Griffith is needed would come down to...
1. how many snaps was Nevis subbed out for Richardson.
2. how many snaps did Nevis & Richardson take together while Kongbo & Thomas rotated.
3. how many snaps did the BB go with 3 DL and use Jones as a dime back.
4. how many snaps did the BB go with 3 DE/1DT - with Jefferson lining up inside.

BB may be planning on using #3 more (with Exume as the dime back) to reduce the extra work load on Thomas.
