As awful as the Jaguars offensive line was in 2012, the defensive line may have been even worse. They had a league-low 20 sacks on the season and allowed the third-most rushing yards a game (141).
There are several players who could solve the Jaguars defensive line problems, but players like Cliff Avril will come with a giant contract.
The Jaguars could still find a good pass-rusher and not break the bank.
Israel Idonije would fit that bill. He is a defensive end who played defensive tackle for the Bears and still had 7.5 sacks in 2012 despite not playing his natural position.
Idonije will turn 33 during the 2013 season, so he is nothing more than a stopgap player until the Jaguars find their long-term solution at the position. He can still have a couple of productive seasons for Jacksonville, as his last three years have been the best of his career.
He is also familiar with new Jaguars defensive coordinator Bob Babich, who was a member of the Bears defensive coaching staff from 2004 to 2012. That familiarity could help lure Idonije to Jacksonville, and he could help teach the rest of the defense Babich's schemes.
Idonije is a versatile player who could provide the Jaguars a couple of quality seasons, and he shouldn't garner a high paycheck in doing so.
