every day i come on here and i read how we need upgrades at d-line, olb and safety . people are saying we can't afford to sign this fee agent or that free agent because we don't have cap room or its not our biggest need .
we need to find a pass rusher, of this i have no doubt ,but how many new guys do we need ?
most would suggest 1 or 2 new guys but bearing in mind in a 3-4 defence the rush comes from our olb's as our d-line guys jobs are not to rush but to take double teams from the o-line so the olb's can rush un-obstructed to the qb and record the sack.
can we do this via the draft? i think so . if we cut thomas and taylor and restructure jenkins contract replace these guys with drafted players it will solve most peoples issues with getting a better pass rush .
but what will we do with all the money we save? we go out and get nnamdi and have the best two corners in football
we get new pass rushers from the draft to keep those guys in the WE NEED PASS RUSHERS camp happy and we sign the best corner available and make the jets the envy of every single team by having the best pass defence in the history of the nfl .
we have seen in the playoffs than even we could get to the qb because our coverage was good so having a player like nnamdi would help any drafted olb to get to the qb easier and hopefully gain a lot more sacks .
we could ( and should ) also restructure bart scott's and calvin pace's and save us more money . they we could also afford to resign both holmes and edwards and replace brad smith by drafting a guy in the later rounds . if we had enough money left over i'd also improve our offence further by adding a guy like lewis or miller ( who are both free agents) at te and cut hartsock .
in conclussion we cut thomas and taylor and let cro walk , sign nnamdi and draft 2 guys to replace thomas an taylor we restructure jenkins ,scott and pace and resign both holmes and edwards and replace brad smith via later rounds of the draft
