Defensive line. It’s time for the Bengals to invest in a young defensive tackle to complement the beastly Geno Atkins. Cincinnati has selected only one DT (Devon Still in 2012) in the first two rounds of the past 22 drafts. The Bengals also need more outside pass rush. Carlos Dunlap had Cheap Elite Nike NFL Jerseys eight sacks in 2016. The rest of Cincinnati’s defensive ends had 10 combined.
Quarterback. Unless the Browns go with second-year QB Cody Kessler after a nondescript rookie season, Cleveland will be fielding its 27th different starter since returning as an NFL franchise in 1999. Jimmy Garoppolo, DeShaun Watson, Mitchell Trubisky and newcomer Brock Osweiler are the most plausible candidates depending on whether the Browns make a move via the draft or free agency.
The Colts bolstered their pass rush Friday by agreeing to terms with Jabaal Sheard, according to ESPN.
After spending the last two seasons with the Patriots, racking up 70 total tackles and 13 sacks, Sheard will spend his next three seasons in Indianapolis on a three-year deal worth $25.5 million. The deal includes $12.75 million guaranteed.
Though Sheard has never had more than 8 1/2 sacks in a single season, he has accumulated 36 sacks in five seasons total.
