Jets Podcast: Breaking Down the Defensive Free Agent Class With Michael Nania

NFL: Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals Katie Stratman-USA TODAY Sports

On today’s podcast Michael Nania of is back to talk about the free agent class on the defensive side of the ball in 2021. Michael was a guest on Thursday’s podcast as we talked about offensive free agents. Now we turn our attention to Robert Saleh’s specialty.

We can say this for the defense. There are at least a few areas of strength, unlike the offense where virtually every position is a need. The needs are particularly pronounced at edge rusher and cornerback, the two most important positions in most defensive schemes. There also are uncertainties at linebacker and safety, however, with CJ Mosley returning after essentially missing two years and Marcus Maye set to hit free agency. Michael offers some contingency plans for these two positions as well in a thorough review of this year’s class.

Thanks as always for listening to the show. You can subscribe to Locked on Jets where podcasts are found.
