Vinny Curry

The Jets need edge rushers. It sounds like a broken record ever since John Abraham was traded away and it probably is. The Jets haven’t had an effective pass rush in years. David Bass shared the second-most sacks on the team with 3.5. That has to change, with all due respect to Bass. They need more than three or five sacks from their top player.

Vinny Curry has the ability to make a huge impact off of the edge. In 2014, he posted nine sacks and forced four fumbles. He didn’t even start in 2014 as he made his impact coming off of the bench. For his career he has posted 22 sacks and 84 games. That would be the type of player that could help the Jets close games.

The big game experience doesn’t hurt either. He did just finish a season with the Eagles where he earned a Super Bowl ring. He’s only 29 years old with football left in the tank. At a minimum he could be part of the rotation. At most, he is on the field every down looking to wreak havoc on opposing offenses. He is certain worth a look.
