Sal was brought in the help, period. By all accounts during his recruitment, he has 4 to play 3. The coaches would love for him to play meaningful snaps this year but if it's an acclamation year that's ok too.
At that time, I don't disagree. Now seemingly, with the hire of CCL, we are less vanilla with the passing schemes and therefore able to utilize a pocket passer in combination with power run and shifts/motions.
