I realize Melton was still working his way back, after missing time due to injury. But we all knew what he could do once he was back to 100%. He was a Pro Bowl defensive tackle, and one of the top DL in the NFL. Losing him this early in our season - for the year - is a huge loss. Sure, Collins, for an undrafted guy, is a decent player, even though his previous two teams let him go. Minter is a "project" UFA rookie who someday may be decent too. But these guys are not Melton quality. Not an experienced Pro Bowl player like Melton. Not one of the best defensive linemen in the NFL.
