gazoo Posted March 10, 2016 Share Posted March 10, 2016 Utah's Derrick Shelby was an undrafted DE signed by the Fins 4 seasons ago. He worked his way up playing sparingly behind Cameron Wake his first 3 seasons until last year when Wake got injured, allowing Shelby to start 9 games. Shelby did not disappoint last year when he got some starts. He had 3.5 sacks, 2 FFs, 4 passed defensed, was stout against the run and had an interception he returned for a TD. He's got great size at 280lbs to hold up against the run, but just started blossoming last year when he got his chance. The Fins fans loved this kid. All our fans do is look at his fantasy stats and start whining he's no good. I see this as a stealth signing where we got a young, veteran blossoming starting level DE for relative peanuts. Now that we've resigned Adrian Clayborn, I'm liking how the line is shaping up. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
