TOJ Free Agency Preview: New York Jets Defensive Line Target

The New York Jets defensive line is full of talent but it’s not quite at a point where it can be ignored. The Jets simply were not sufficiently effective rushing the passer last season and much of that was due to their lack of edge rushing talent. The Jets cannot simply bank on Carl Lawson returning and putting the unit on his back. They need an elite rusher as both insurance and a complimentary piece to Lawson. Chandler Jones is a solid option to meet that criteria.

TOJ: Fixing the New York Jets Defense By Creating The Bully

The Jets defense has looked as bad as they have looked in a few regimes.

Yes, they have been ravaged by injuries.

Yes, they are talent starved at key positions.

What has gone wrong for them goes beyond that. They can’t diagnose plays, can’t tackle and, worst of all, they look soft way too often. “Soft” is probably the worst thing you could ever call anyone on defense, and that cannot be acceptable for head coach Robert Saleh and defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich considering the defenses they have had success with in the past. So how did those defenses do it? And how can the Jets take those learnings into this off-season?
