RTC: Pass rush a priority in free agency

3/4/2014

Creating more pressure on the quarterback is one of the Jaguars' top priorities this offseason. They can start by being aggressive in free agency.

The Florida Times-Union's Ryan O'Halloran writes that the Jaguars should target Cincinnati defensive end Michael Johnson now that Carolina has used the franchise tag on Greg Hardy. At 270 pounds, Johnson is big enough to move inside to play tackle on passing downs, which would allow the Jaguars to get another rusher on the field.

Seattle's Michael Bennett and/or Chris Clemons are other players Jaguars should target, O'Halloran writes. Oakland's Lamarr Houston, Detroit's Willie Young and Minnesota's Everson Griffin are other potential targets, too.
