I think Watts departure will hurt more than most think. He was one of the faster players on the team and was very good in space, both tackling and coverage. It appeared to me that he was an excellent all around player.
granted,he was a good looking athlete but, like our other LB's, seemed to make very few disruptive plays (i.e. TFL, forced fumbles, etc.) It's an area of concern I have had about our LB's for some time.
