    Morgan is a proven player with everything you want in a DE. Not everyone is a 10 sack player, stop being a diva about this. So what if he doesn't have the pretty sack stat, he does 90% of everything else the way you want.

    I think Morgan is an example of why a lot of teams choose to go the 3-4 route. It is hard to get a really good 4-3 DE who excels against the pass and the run. A KVB type. And those that do come a long you have to pay through the nose for.

    It is easier to be that good two way OLB in a 3-4 (Provided you have the right D linemen to tie up blockers). Which means there are more of them and they are cheaper.

    A good article describing the difference between the 3-4 OLB and 4-3 DE:

    "It's harder to find defensive linemen to play a 4-3 and pay for all of them," new Dallas Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said at the NFL meetings last month. "In this day and age, where salary cap is so important, D-linemen are the highest-paid guys. And to get the guys we had in Philadelphia with Reggie White and Jerome Brown and Clyde Simmons, there's no way you could keep those guys [in this day and age]. They didn't keep Reggie anyway.​
    "I think linebackers, in reality, are a little bit cheaper, and you can find more of them. You can find more guys who are instinctive, who can run. Some in-between guys sometimes are good at outside backer. It seems to fit better as far as the personnel and really the money that you have to spend on guys on defense."​

    Except explosiveness and the ability to beat good offensive tackles. Other than that he's awesome.

    Moise Fokou almost had a sack on that play. Doesn't change the fact the Fokou sucks ass too.
