Where does Adalius Thomas go from here?

With outside linebacker Adalius Thomas feuding with Patriots coach Bill Belichick, there is speculation that he might return to Baltimore next season, but Thomas might opt for the Jets and former Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan. With Ryan, you know he can use a multi-talented linebacker like Thomas.

After Thomas, there was Bart Scott. But with new defensive coordinator Greg Mattison, the Ravens may not need another linebacker like Thomas. The Ravens tried to put Jarret Johnson in that position at one time, but he was not athletic or fast enough to play that style. The Ravens used four to five different players in that role this season filling in for Scott, and they couldn't find one.

It might be time for Mattison to scratch that position, and find another type linebacker. As for Ryan, he will always have a Thomas or a Scott in his scheme.
