Outside Linebacker Performance
Clay Matthews and Nick Perry are the 5th and 6th highest paid outside linebackers, respectively, in the NFL. Yet, through two games in the 2018 season, they are among the lowest graded linebackers in the league.
What has happened? Is it age? Injury history? Defensive scheme? Something else? Let me know your thoughts.
Also, do you think they can turn it around? Can they recapture some of the dominant play that earned them those contracts in the first place?
I’m looking forward to hearing your perspective.
