Didn't Jamir Miller go from 34 OLB under Romeo to 43 DE under Fazio? Sheared would just be going the other way.AA:Maybe you're thinking of Willie McGinest. I think Miller played lb almost exclusively.Have no idea whether Sheard could transition. He could be a situational 4-3 rusher, but given his salary, probably a more expensive version of Juqua Parker (or, said a la Jason Statham: "Pahkuh"). But hey, it's not like the Browns have to count their quarters these days.
Miller was OLB in the 40 front Butch brought over in '01.
I think you meant Kenard Lang--a 4-3 DE under Butch who was asked to drop 40 lbs. and play OLB in RAC's two-gap 3-4 in '05.
