Is a second for LB Lipford worth it?
His performance on the field doesn't look it so far, but his ratings sure the heck does.

This would be pretty tough to pass up for Seattle. Maybe the Seahawks can lite a fire under his butt.

Hated to part with Lipford, who is capable, but the acquisition of Kouba made him expendable. Obtaining a 2nd rd draft choice next season (after trading our 1st rd) made it imperative as well.

It's worth it if you move him to DL or SS (with his weight he could go to either place easily). Or if you don't plan to use him in coverage. In my scheme, he's a 90+ tackler at the WLB since I don't rely on the WLB to cover anyone on the LOS, so his awful B&R won't burn him. But he needs to be schemed correctly.
