Right now, it’s just a matter of getting him comfortable and finding out what he can do.
“Yeah listen, he’s done it for a long time and the system he was in Cincinnati all those years was kind of conducive to him,” Spagnuolo told reporters. “Mike Zimmer had him for a long time and what they were doing— it was a four-down (linemen) system, call it what you want. We’re multiple now, so we’re in a couple of different things. I think he functions well outside. We’ve talked to him about him playing inside, we’ll see where that goes. I’m not really sure. I want to get him comfortable at one spot first.

Those players who’ve been working with the various first through fourth-team units with frequency in training camp will be assigned as such.
