It's gotta be the right fit IMO. I think Wolfe benefited from having dumervil and Von on his line. The FO has been pretty dam solid so far and I got faith that they have a plan. It's not so much who's gonna replace 12 sacks 6 FFs, but rather whos gonna step up when it's 3rd down and force the QB into throwing it in the stands or grass. The little things that go unoticed. Timely appearances during games. I'm not a fan of moving Von though like Bmore is exploring. Don't fix what ain't broke with him.
