Timmons is upwards of 250 now, and even when he was around 235 he was a TERRIBLE fit for us and was absolutely steam rolled in the run game, just physically abused and manhandled as a rookie. Even then he did over double the reps spence did at that size and while bench press isnt everything it does go a long way to taking on guards.
and jack lambert would be demolished in todays league, he played in a time where there were zero 300 pound players
great try, but spence is tremendouly undersized for a 34 MLB, not saying he cant grow into the position but you act like hes going to be a sudden impact which he just isnt...he may very well lead the team in special teams tackles but probably not too much on defnese. I like him a lot as a LB of the future, this year is just so unlikely. He will be able to shoot a gap like no other, its just rare for a rookie to play on that defense and hes really likely not physically ready, his functional strength leaves much to be desired
