I gathered more info on our part-time YOGA, part-time snowboarding instructor and backup middle linebacker Kevin Bentley. I asked some Houston Texans bloggers about him and here is what they had to say:
He played in the middle last year when (DeMeco) Ryans got hurt and played OK. He’s good against pass. he’s better suited to play OLB because he’s not a great run stopper. – Dustyn Richardson of Houston Sports and More
SO, he sounds like he will be a decent backup at the position. Norv and AJ must have a lot of trust in Donald Butler getting this thing done. Let the Butler show begin! I finally will stop looking for a new starting middle linebacker and jump on board the Butler bandwagon. I also will hope that Stephen Cooper can tough it out as a backup, because I am not so sure as Bentley in the middle. The Texans didn’t bring him back because he didn’t fit the 3-4 system. Is he an outside guy or an inside guy? He does sound like another BEAST that we added to the special teams squad.
