    O'Neil is just a ST, so he can get a pass on that. He never started or anything, Boiman can contend.

    Sort of a side comment that I could've edited, but decided not to -

    If June can show some versatility, that would help him. Relating back to his Michigan buddy Ian Gold, Gold went to Tampa Bay and played out of position at the strongside. That helped him out somewhat, and he found his way back to Denver the next year. I think, if utilized correctly (thus, within the cover 2), June could perhaps play the strongside decently. Personally, I really think he should call Tampa up and see if a one year deal can be worked out, as I think he would upgrade, um, I'm guessing Nece?, out there. Personally, I also think he could be passable at middle linebacker in the cover 2, if the protection is fine up front. He's about the same size as Quarles (although Quarles plays much bigger than his size). There are options, but June has to be open to them, as I find it unlikely that, at this stage, that June will get a real big money deal, and may have to settle for something to get another shot. But who knows, a lot of money flowing around, so something surprising may happen, but I tend to think his best recourse is going with a one year deal and then trying again next year. Albeit, he is 28, so it's a bit riskier.

    Look, it's obvious that he has flaws in his game, but how many LBs out there that are flawless???

    Cato June is a GOOD LB. He's among the best LBs in coverage. Obviously, he's not as good against the run but he's capable of being ok there as well, if his DLs keep blockers off him.

    June may have to end up doing what Ian Gold did, which is take a 1 year deal and hope for a better situation the next year. He's a decent backer, but he is somewhat limited relative to role and fits that he could go in to.

    Btw, for some reason, I thought this was going to be a thread on potential June cap cuts.

    Teams want a guy that can play the run first and play the pass second.

    Cato June is a funny guy, if you seen his interviews and is a great guy to have on a team. It pains me to say that he just did not have a good season. He does tackle to high and if you saw the Jackonsville game you would've seen Maurice Jones-Drew just shake him off, though that obviously isn't a rarity with MJD. June's coverage actually slipped a little bit this year and his only real standout game was against New England in Week 9 I believe? He's quick and isn't the worst LB on the Colts, that honor goes to Gilbert Gardner. I think he can be a solid LB if he works on his technique.
    pretty much right on.

    The fact that Cato June is 225 is of no consequence. I can name a lot of smallish LB's who can bring the wood, Vilma, Brooks, Ernie Sims. The problem with June is his tackling is very pourous. He tries to tackle the ball carrier high for whatever reason. As everyone knows his biggest strength is his pass coverage. I don't see him commanding deals like Mike Peterson and Marcus Washington did.

    What you are saying makes little sense because Marion isn't that great and the Giants would only sign Cato June to upgrade there LB position. Thus, signing Cato June would upgrade over the current player they have playing at LB, making it harder for Marion Barber.

    Hes undersized and cant play the run. He can cover good but teams but a higher importance on run stuffers.
