    McClain is a jag. He adds nothing to the equation when lined up next to Irving or Collins. Heís more like rotation depth behind Irving and Collins.

    i play Collins and Hankins on running downs and Irving and Collins on passing downs

    I don't think that is an entirely accurate assessment of McClain, at least based on his tenure here. Didn't really follow him in Washington.

    He was a good player. I'd certainly love to have him off the bench as a helper in run stopping.

    He's a one-dimensional run stopper. But we need one of those.

    Saying bargain shopping and Hankins in the same sentence is laughable. Dude WAAAAY over values himself for a flash he had 3-4 years ago. If we're talking JAG, that's pretty much what he's been the last couple years or so. I'd much rather have McClain over Hankins regardless of the age difference. I think both would offer pretty much the same thing, with one coming at a fraction of the cost.

    McClain last fit into the 3T rotation when he was here. He adds no new capabilities to the team.

    Hankins is a no tricks run-stuffer and is also underrated vs the pass thanks to his ability to draw blockers and give little ground.

    Watch the last drive of the 2017 Green Bay game again and tell me you trust Marinelliís guessing to stop the run in situational football.

    Sometimes you need actual players.

    I'd put them on about the same level, too, and in addition to the cost savings, McClain is already familiar with Marinelli's scheme. He gets the edge for me, and it's not particularly close as it stands right now.

    My concern with McClain is that he has a long injury history. He finally put it together in Dallas his final year here. Of three years in Dallas he only had 1 where he really avoided injury (15 game starter at least).

    Even if you go back to the early part of his career he rarely had a full healthy season. Because of that I'd lean towards Hankins but Dallas has a history with McClain and they have none with Hankins. So it's pretty much McClain or nothing.

    That's a fair point.
