    Adawale Ogunleye

    He was just let go by the Bears and his coming off a injury. I say we should go get him for cheap to fill the gap at DE for the time being. If we keep Douglas or draft someone to play DE, he would provide great depth along with Devito.

    He was a really good pass rusher a year or two ago, haven't followed him at all recently, I guess signing Peppers made him expendable, believe he's more of a traditional 4-3 end but Rex doesn't run a traditional 3-4 so he could definatly find a spot for him if he is still valuable.

    He's been a 43 DE his entire career with Miami and Chicago. In this defense with his size he is a 34 OLB. I'd rather not teach an old dog new tricks because it most likely will not work. Pass.

    He's not a 3-4 DE, not even close.

    He was a beast with Miami and had a really good run in Chicago as well. I'd rather plug in youth and having Ogunleye playing 3-4 OLB may not work out so good; teams will target him and expose him in coverage.

    He was good a few years back but I think he won't have much impact for us now. Would rather we got Adalius or build thru the draft at this point

    Pass... not a fit. Jets have an older line we need to inject youth into the line hopefully in the draft
