RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Tavares Gooden.
Gooden had trouble staying on the field last season with constant shoulder troubles. When healthy he should figure into the rotation at inside linebacker. That could be a big if, however.
Gooden isn't mentioned much in a talented linebacker corps, but coaches have always loved his talent. If he can stay healthy while holding off competitors he should start next to Ray Lewis. He's still a weak option as an IDP, with just 47 tackles last season in 12 games.
Gooden will take over the starting inside linebacker spot vacated when Bart Scott left for the Jets. Coaches loved Gooden's potential before he was sideline for the season in October due to a hip injury. Now he hopes to replicate Scott's production of 82 tackles and 1.5 sacks from last season.
Gooden's IDP in his rookie season should be minimal. He'll likely spend his first year getting adjusted to the rigors of the NFL.
