Vita Vea has shown up to camp a lot leaner than he was last season. Greg Auman of the Athletic has reported that Vea has lost weight in the hopes of staying on the field in passing situations instead of just plugging the running lanes. In essence, Vea wants to become a 3 down lineman able to do it all, whether it’s lining up at DE or at NT.
Vea came on strong towards the end of last season, and it will be interesting to see just how high his ceiling is. Count on Vea to possibly put up a Pro Bowl type season in Todd Bowles defense.
