Marques Douglas: Stay or Go?

The Jets have a decision to make on starting defensive end Marques Douglas. The team originally signed Douglas a year ago to provide depth. He stepped into a starting role when Kenyon Coleman went to Cleveland in the Mark Sanchez trade.

I felt like the 32 year old was one of the unsung heroes of the defense. For starters, he came with Rex from Baltimore and was kind of a coach on the field helping to teach the new scheme. Defensive linemen usually get noticed for their sacks. Douglas isn't much of a pass rusher. He is excellent holding the point of attack and playing the run, though, registering 64 tackles, which makes him a valuable two down 3-4 player.

I would love to see Douglas back in green and white next year. The Jets could let him walk as an unrestricted free agent and gain an extra free agent spot to use. The problem is that would create a hole. Douglas isn't a spare part. The team would be forced to make another move to replace him.

I want him back for another year. I vote stay.
