The NY Jets have been searching for premium edge rushers for a long time, but for several years now, they haven’t been shopping for them in the top-tier of free agency or the draft.

With the Jets on the verge of entering the 2021 NFL free-agency period, which officially begins on March 17th, perhaps they will finally make the aggressive play to acquire a dynamic outside pass rusher.

Not since Gang Green broke the bank for Calvin Pace in 2008 (6 years, $42 million, $22 million guaranteed) have the Jets prioritized addressing this problem spot in free agency.
