You have to be pro-active. Plus with the likely switch to more of a 4-3 the need for a NT on this team is becoming less and less important. Especially a NT who has no pass rushing skills what so ever. And you may see Coples and/or Wilkerson play more DT next year especially if we bring in one of the top DE/OLB from this years draft. You can not take a wait and see approach when you don't have a lot of money to spend.
I'd agree only if you're positive we can't contend next year, which is a real concern depending on who QBs the team...
By some miracle if we can dump Sanchez, Ryan stays, etc... It's not like the 3-4 is going away completely.
