could come in as nickle pass rusher. I would dump Jacobs and sign this dude or another pass rusher.
So you'd want a guy who has produced 3.5 sacks in 1.5 years since leaving Jared Allen and the "Williams Wall" and replace Aldon or Brooks who have combined for 34.5 in the same time span? Even if its only on 3rd down that is not a good idea, I'd be all for it if we were getting creative with his placement a la Mathias Kiwanuka as DT, meaning replace Ray Mac or Sopoaga for Edwards or any pass rush specialist for that matter.
EDIT: lol I didn't read either Geek's or AB's posts before posting mine, glad we all know that Edwards' production was most likely a byproduct of being the least talent member of one of the best front 4's in recent memory.
Double edit: I would gladly dump Jacobs for a legitimate pass rusher by the way, definitely agree on that, just not that it should be Edwards.
