Despite all of Rex Ryan's bizarre blitz schemes, the Jets' pass rush failed to make much of an impact in 2012, even with an elite secondary playing behind them.
The unit ranked just 25th in the league in sacks, with 30.
While the defensive ends, notably Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples, have developed into game-changers, the outside linebacker position needs to be seriously addressed.
Calvin Pace has already been released, and Bryan Thomas is likely to follow in his footsteps, leaving New York with no starters on their roster.
New York should target Connor Barwin and Manny Lawson to fill the holes and reinvigorate the team's pass rush.
Barwin is coming off a down, three-sack season, so his value is low right now. In the right scheme, Barwin could explode for double-digit sacks again.
Lawson isn't a star, but he's a solid player capable of manning the outside edge.
