By just rushing him off the edge he at times becomes a liability on run plays because he overpursued going for the QB and left a lane wide open. And that isn't his fault it is the scheme and how he is used.
By staying in the 4-3, Von can either play DE or he can stay at Sam in the 4-3 Under, which is what we are currently doing. A better schematical look at the 4-3 Under is how Seattle utilizes it with Bruce Irvin. Seattle has great players on all three levels though.

The other solution is moving to a 3-4..
