Why can't he be [Sheard] asked to get smaller and play OLB?  Kinda a silly bit of logic to only assume that a 34 OLB/DE Tweener can only go one direction.  Didn't Jamir Miller go from 34 OLB under Romeo to 43 DE under Fazio?  Sheared would just be going the other way.

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.
