Jets need an edge Dan Leberfeld

The Jets need to improve their edge pass rush, a key component of any successful 3-4 defense.

But not with just-a-guy; not with a pedestrian rusher who gets to the quarterback once in a blue moon, and finishes a season four or five sacks.

They need a double-digit edge sack guy (not talking about interior pass-rushers); they need a game-wrecker with great first-step quickness, a guy who can consistently take the edge and beat offensive tackles one-on-one.

They have been kicking the can down the road on this need for too long.

They need to finally address it this off-season, whether it’s in free agency or the draft.

No more procrastinating.
