DirtyBirdDynasty Posted January 22, 2012 Share Posted January 22, 2012 On D beyond resigning Lofton our biggest need is to upgrade the pass rush. Our best pass rusher is a FA who's 33. I don't see many impact pass rushers potentially available. They could all be resigned or tagged.-Mario Williams DE/DT-Cliff Avril DE-Robert Mathis DE-Calais Campbell DT/DEThese are the only impact pass rushers. Anthony Spencer and Manny Lawson are also potentially available but they're not real difference making pass rushers.IF Williams or Avril did hit the market we could upgrade with them over Abe but it would be a massive gamble to let Abe walk and hope someone is available and will sign with us. We would be best off resigning Abe before FA starts. We may also want to consider resigning Biermann for the same reason. We could then add a pass rusher in the draft.One FA who may be available is Paul Soliai from Miami. The NT is 28, 6'4 355 and was Nolans starting nose tackle with the Dolphins. He played on a 12 M franchise tag last season so if tagged again he would cost MIA a ton, making him likely to be available. He would give us a much needed force at DT to keep our LBs clean, free up our other players and keep our other DTs fresh, and set up 3rd and long situations.
