Where did you see this? I thought they were going to keep him outside for consistency's sake.

Cool, thanks. I'm personally fine with it. I like the idea of being able to move guys all around. I just thought they had said they were going to try to avoid that with him.

I was they would have Watkins compete there also, or bring Thurmond in the slot at times and have the thrid S take over for Thurmond.
