I'd be shocked to see Ream as a legit option at outside back given his speed, I just don't see him as being able to handle any wingers speed defensively. Hopefully I'm wrong, but wow can't believe this is even being tried to be honest.

I'm all for it. He still needs to be better on the high stuff. He'll need to cover the backside on crosses half the time, so he'll still need the ability to physically win challenges on crosses and not lose his mark. It would be a huge positive for the nats if he can be successful at LB. I'm hoping for the best.

I could see it only because Besler is so fast (constantly called by all teamates as the fastest player on the roster) He can have the recovery speed that Ream lacks. They actually complement each other quite nicely

I think Bolton is just trying to get some value out of Ream here. Maybe they just don't see him as a dependable CB anymore? I dont know. But just because he's being moved to LB doesnt mean he's better there, and it certainly doesnt open the door back to the USMNT.
