Have to agree with you on that, unless its a position that a guy's played before then I'm dubious as as how well it can really work. I'd rather see them stick at their old position and work/fight harder for a spot
I just hate to see guys switching positions to fit the needs of the team. Be honest, when was the last time that worked? Tackles to ends, ends to tackles, weekside LB to strong side and vice versa. Chavous to Safety was a good move, but he's more of a leader of the defense, and was well suited to the position. Maybe I'm wrong..., and I would like to see Offord work out. I'm just a skeptic.
