Reason 1: There is Defensive Line Depth On The Roster
Remember Tyrone Crawford? What about Ben Bass? Everette Brown made some big plays in games. There is hidden depth on the defensive line, but people seem to have forgotten about it. Crawford has the ability to play either the one or three technique. Jason Hatcher claimed in training camp that Ben Bass was going to be the reason the team moved on from him. Bass missed the year with an injury, but will be returning in 2014.
