Was this mentioned - thought it was pretty cool
I was watching the Browns game, with Cleveland on the 4 yard line about to go ahead, and did a double take - playing DT was not one but two offensive linemen:
#75 Robert Turner and #78 Wayne Hunter.
They did well actually - maybe we'll see more of this.
Turner especially has a defensive mindset. Hunter is just plain massive.
Turner got a pretty good hit on Leonhard - :).
He is a versatile player. He plays offense, can play some defense, and is on Special Teams.
Turner and Hunter playing Defense last week (Video)
Anyone else notice this?
Interesting strategy to bring more of the big fellas in on Goaline D
I could just hear Rex "Yeah throw Turner in there he doesn't give a sh*t"
In the last two seconds of the video is a great shot of Turner tackling Leonhard. That is funny
Leonard was probably like "Love your enthusiasm, kid. Next time aim for the guy with the Orange Helmet" :P
I know I may sound crazy, but I wouldn't be against seeing Vlad Ducasse get an intro to DT class. 6'4 330lbs, strong as an ox. Why not?

Great find - I had not noticed it and I suspect none of the Jets beat writers noticed it as I've haven't heard any questions come up during a press conference.
