Get that number in single digits or trade him if you can. I think Ayers (who's coming into his 5th year) really showed some improvement last year and I think he could be ready. Hunter also looked really solid last year before injury.
And since we're on the DL subject, who here likes Malik Jackson? He's listed as DL and I think I've seen him in preseason line up as both DT and DE. Honestly, he's got the prototype DE body at 6'5 275. Got long arms. I like what he showed in preseason. Obviously needs to groom his rushing but I thought he played the run well and showed some ability. I just don't see us trying to turn him into a DT. To me he is more of a DE. Look forward to him having a much bigger impact this year for us now going into this 2nd year.
Said this dozens of times and will keep seeing it, we need a consistent pass rush...................CONSISTENT
