    I want to move back to the 3-4 defense with the Broncos and want to move Dumervil to OLB but figured I needed to get the approval first. Dumervil did play OLB in the 3-4 Denver used to run.

    I thought it was allowed to have DE's move to OLB but not the other way around?

    I don't see if your gonna run a 4-3 why he wouldn't but I wasn't around for that vote.

    I want to use him like the Packers use Clay Matthews

    There is no explicit rule saying that you can and thus currently it cannot.

    Changes would have to be put to a vote.

    The key point here is that a decent DE doesn't turn into a freak OLB if the position switch is made - which is precisely what happens when you put even a pedestrian LB at DE.

    Okay, so if I go to a 3-4, Dumervil still has to play DE. Okay that is what I was checking so for now guess I will stay in the 4-3. May look to trade Dumervil then and go to the 3-4.

    Since Dumervil had played OLB when they played 3-4 before I think he should have the right to move to OLB so I definitely think that should go to a vote. If proven a player has played the position before they should be allowed to play it. I understand the OLB to DE but they have to be able to prove that they have played it before or some limitation like that.
