Unlike running back. There is a shortage of good coverage linebackers in the National Football League. Most teams on the decline seem to be without a well-performing coverage linebacker, and most contenders all seem to have at least one. I am not saying anything specific about that, just something noticeable.
Atlanta Falcon Foyesude Oluokun. Playing in a poor Atlanta defensive scheme, he has not had a fantastic year. But his size, speed, and ability to cover most running backs would make him a low-cost addition with the possibility for better play in a better scheme. Or he could be Jerome Baker 2.0 here in Miami.
Indianapolis Colts Bobby Okereke. His 78.1 passer rating allowed so far in 2021 would make him an ideal fit to play alongside Elandon Roberts. His ability to keep up with smaller running backs would make him an immediate upgrade at the linebacker position.
Jacksonville Jaguars Myles Jack. A second-team All-Pro in 2020, he is not playing well under new head coach Urban Myer. But this speedy linebacker would do well with a change of scenery and put in a position to play to his strength.
The first two could be a harder sell to get their current teams to allow them to walk via a trade. But Myles Jack makes sense for the rebuilding Jacksonville Jaguars to part ways with the big name of Myles Jack and be compensated for his departure.
