Buccaneers Could Move Mason Foster To Outside Linebacker
Without the benefit of an NFL off-season to get acclimated to the National Football League, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster started 15 of 16 games as a rookie, totaling 83 tackles, two sacks and an interception from the middle linebacker spot. Entering year two, Foster could move to outside linebacker, Stephen Holder of The Tampa Times reports. "I can’t speak to that yet until we first of all address free agency and the draft and look at our overall package," Buccaneers defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan said. "But I will say this, to give you a roundabout answer: He’s a linebacker. And, to me, if you’re a good linebacker, you should be able to play (strong-side) or (middle) or (weak-side). You’re off the ball in a two-point stance, you have very similar key progressions and very similar coverage responsibilities. "I’m not caught up on pigeonholing guys into positions. You’re a linebacker. And he definitely has NFL talent."
