    Your right macabee, not your typical DE size, even for us.

    6-4 is really tall for a linebacker, and 238 is really light for a 6-4 LB. Guess he’s really a special teams guy, so size mismatches won’t matter.

    Finally the boys down at Electronic Arts will have to figure out how fast Dye is in Madden 16. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time! Should make some CBs pant in real life, too, and open up the outside running game when other teams are using man coverage. You’ve got to give guys like Dye some cushion unless you can jam them up on the line. We’ll finally get to see how he copes with that, too. Bad news for Humphries, though, who hasn’t found a role to play yet. Not even on returns.
