Potential Position Changes?

Been hearing that we have a couple of position changes on deck: Alec Bryant is moving from DE to DT and Derrell Bailey Jr. is switching from DL to OT. Can anyone confirm?

Can't confirm, but believe the Bailey position change had been mentioned previously last fall as probably certain.

I would think that Alec would have to pack on quite a few pounds to make that switch.

He came in around 240, so yeah he would have quite a lot of weight to pack on for DT. Perhaps he was still growing though, that would make the transition much easier.

Does a smaller and faster DT fit in the scheme for the D-Line? I know under Wiles the tackle combination of a bigger run stuffer and a smaller fast twitch tackle seemed to work pretty well but I don't know if that still applies.

Teerlinck still plays a strongside 3 tech so I'm sure that's where he will go and I'm pretty excited about having his playmaking skill there.

I have no information on these potential position changes, but I do have respect for guys who are willing to do the work to improve themselves and do what's best for the team. That takes GRIT.

Can I get a definition of this GRIT you are talking about?

A dish of coarsely ground corn kernels boiled with water or milk.


Synonymous with pain and sorrow, I'll accept it.

I commend anyone that stays the course and agrees to change positions, instead of jumping ship and changing schools. Loyalty, persistence and GRIT.

So we talking Kadum or Burmeister to TE?
