How to fix our pass rushing woes

With David Bass and Andre Carter gone our pass rush looks abysmal. Our entire defense combined for just 16 sacks last season. Here is how we can try and fix that with the little resources we have.

Step one: Sign Richard Seymour

Yes I know what Raider fans think of Seymour. He quit on the tea, he's lazy, etc

But no one can deny that he can still play.

Last season Seymour compiled a ProFootballFocus grade of 9.5, that's higher than the entire Denver Bronco's DL COMBINED (7.3). Seymour was ranked the 14th best DT in the NFL last season. His versatility is incredible as he's been dominant in both 3-4 and 4-3 fronts. Bringing him in would bolster our interior pass rush immediately and he can mentor our younger guys with his great experience.

Step two: Sign Juqua Parker

Parker had a solid season last year finishing with 6 sacks. He'd come in and become a solid situational pass rusher

He finished with a very impressive PFF grade of 8.2

Step three: Have Sio Moore play the Von Miller role

Dennis Allen is already trying to do this. Von Miller is a 4-3 OLB like Sio, but in Denver they use him in a special role with his hand in the dirt a lot and they give him every opportunity to rush the Passer. Sio Moore has great athelticism and that's the role we need to play him in.

Step four: Play more 3-4 sets

DC Jason Tarver has a to of experience with 3-4 sets and they can help us get to the passer, our DL will have the versatility to make it work.

Here will our DL be in a 3-4 set

DE: Houston

NT: Pat Sims

DT: Richard Seymour

With Vance Walker rotating. Already our interior pass rush gets a lot better and we can put Sio at 3-4 OLB allowing him to get after the QB.

So in a 4-3 we'd look like this on down when we need pass rush

RE: Lamarr Houston

DT: Richard Seymour

DT: Pat Sims

DE: Juqua Parker

Von Miller role: Sio Moore

Definitely a lot better than what we have
