Should the Cardinals exercise their option on Deone Bucannon?
- Bucannon’s 0.75 yards allowed per cover snap ranked No. 6 among inside linebackers in 2016.
- The former first-round pick had a 6.0 combined tackling efficiency (attempted tackles/missed tackles), the seventh-lowest among inside linebackers.
- In 2015, Bucannon only missed 4 of 54 tackles in coverage, the fourth-best rate.
- Signing Bucannon gives the Cardinals one of the best coverage linebackers in the NFL, but he lacks the ability to be an effective run-stopper.
