Exactly, I think he definitely could be a pretty good fit in the 3-4, but nothing compared to what he can be in the 4-3. If the team decides that he will not be an elite player in a 3-4 defense, it would make sense to trade him this offseason while people have seen him have a good season in a 4-3 recently. The ONLY reason we would trade Vilma is because Mangini is convinced he cannot be an elite 3-4 ILB, and IF that is the case and the Jets have fallen in love with AD or CJ the trade makes sense for both sides. If not, the trade will not happen.
