IN THEIR WORDS: Kasim Edebali ready to step up as a starter
Fourth-year linebacker Kasim Edebali doesn’t have huge numbers to his credit as an NFL pass-rusher. In 48 games (two starts) with the New Orleans Saints, the Boston College product had only 54 tackles (41 solo) and eight sacks. However, the native of Hamburg, Germany has always played an important depth role in addition to being a special teams ace. With the injury to former first-round pick Shane Ray, Edebali will for now step into the starting OLB role opposite Von Miller.
