Evaluate The LBs

I really didn't think this area would make much of a topic. However, the more I thought about it, there are some questions to consider here. Do the Lions re-sign Foote? If they don't, does Levy step in and start at MLB, or do we hunt for another starter? Is Sims a good choice for WLB? ( For the sake of arguement, we are not trading Sims. If you aren't comfortable with him starting, tell me how you want him replaced. It is to hard to know if another team would accept the trade anyone dreams up.)

It is true we have some depth at the LB spots, but if we lose Foote, and have Sims, Levy, and Peterson start, who is there left for good depth? Here is the list of LBs. Who do you want to stay,  who do you want to go, and how do ou want the voids filled?
