Third year outside linebacker Joplo Bartu has been used more and more as the weeks go by after injuries to Justin Durant and Brooks Reed and has done a solid job of it. Bartu has five tackles on the year and had done a good job on special teams as well. Bartu has been extremely quite, but that isn’t always a bad thing. He has yet to make any bad plays, something he did a lot of in 2014.
