Just a thought

Doesn't Pettine play a lot of cover 1 or single high coverage? I wonder if they think they can use Jones, Burks, and Haha on the field at the same time to rotate coverages in a scenario where they set up in a 2-man look, and then roll into a cover 1 to drop another guy into the box.
Seems like if they wanted just 1 guy that could play the S/LB hybrid position they would have left Jones there. The fact that Burks is himself indeed the same type of tweener (but more on the LB side) as Jones (more on the S side) seems to suggest that they want them on the field at the same time to compliment each other.
