3. Edge rusher

Under contract: Arnold Ebiketie, Lorenzo Carter, DeAngelo Malone, Ade Ogundeji

When are we going to find a franchise edge rusher?

If there is anything Raheem Morris has to do for his defense, it has to be finding a great edge rusher. Last season, this team lacked that game-wrecker who could make a play on the final drive of the game to seal the deal.

Bud Dupree is a free agent and he was the most consistent player. Arnold Ebiketie has shown some outstanding flashes but continues to be used in a limited role.

As for DeAngelo Malone, who knows what his future is after playing just a few defensive snaps in his second year.
