IMO the DL is a bigger issue and tougher to address
Insert LT, move Tyron back to RT. Insert through FA/Draft a combo G/C player. Must be good player and not a JAG. FA/DRAFT a DL/DE and a OLB, again no Jag With Jenkins leaving we must get at least one if not two CB'S, one must be a potential immediate starter. That will leave us needing help at S,RB,WR,PR/KR and possible other positions.
Parnell,Livings, Bernadeau, Kowalski,Costa,Free can compete for the remaining two starting interior positions and back-ups
