Solving the Pass Rush Question
I was trying to determine how it is best to solve the pass rush question and to improve the team.
*Let me start by saying that if we could get Mario Williams I would, but my plan requires some money for the WR position.
Izzy Idonije [3 years 9 million/4 guaranteed]
The guy is a great depth guy and a locker room leader that the Bears should keep as a back up. He is also very good against the run and can contribute on special teams.
Kamerion Wimbley [5 years 35 million/13 guaranteed]
I know he has not been released yet, but he or a guy like Jeremy Mincey, could come in much cheaper than Williams and Avril and he can be a disruptive starting force across from Peppers especially considering he would not be facing the double teams. Lovie loved this guy when he was in the 2005 draft and again when he was traded to Oakland.
2 DE Chandler Jones [Syracuse] 6'5" 266lbs. [35.5" Arms, 4.87 40, 22 reps, 35" vert]
I would pick Nick Perry or Melvin Ingram at 19, but once we get past those 2 guys I do not see a lot of difference between the Mercilus, Branch, Curry and Jones group. Jones looks like the type of guy that Lovie loves, Jones is tall with long arms and a good burst.
Our DEs played way to many snaps last season and as the Giants showed we need to send waves of pass rush at people constant pressure on the tackles.
RE: Peppers, Jones
LE: Wimbley, Idonije
