You can get several easy tackles with your MLB by using him during your kickoffs. Go to coaching strategies and find "Kickoff". Assign the third player from the left to be your MLB. Assign the first two players on the left as very slow CBs or FSs. When you kick off, kick the ball to the left side where your MLB is assigned. If you do not kick it too deeply, your MLB will be the first one downfield and will go unblocked into the return man. Note: If you have the roster space and some money, create a CB and FS and make all of their attributes zeros. You should have no trouble signing them to a contract. You can then use them on your kickoff squad and they will almost never make it downfield. With this trick, in addition to the tackles your MLB gets during the game, he will get one for every kickoff as well.
