I think Paea can have as much if not more impact than Melton this year if it all shakes out. Being healed up, a full camp, and more time w/Rod he should be a breakout star. I can see him alternating series w/Melton at 3tech and spelling Toe at NT. The key just might be where to rotate him and when.
I think their biggest complaint with Paea last year was he wasn't getting low enough. Well it's hard to get low when you can't bend your knee! We all know the lower you get as a DT the more power & speed you have & I think Paea has plenty of both if healthy. I'm amazed he played as well as he did. If he can be a force this year & Price shows all that talent we have heard about DT could turn into a strength. With a consistent push up the middle Peppers could easily get 15 sacks this year.
