2 positions we should attack in free agency

I am going to get straight to the point. I feel there is two positions the Jags must go after. The first, is defensive end.

I know..... A lot of you feel that we have a lot of young talent with Jerey Mincey(potential, not young), Austin Lane, Larry Hart, and Aaron Morgan. The problem is Jack Del Rio. Does he trust that Wayne Weaver will keep him around like he said if they contend for a playoff spot and not make the playoffs. He may not. I firmly believe that a dominate front 4 that provides pressure will always give you a chance to win.

Perfect example: 2010-2011 National Champions Auburn Tigers (They had a terrible secondary that constantly gave SEC recievers 100 yard games. But pressure bust pipes!

Guys we should target are:

Tambi Hali, DE, Chiefs. Age: 27

A monstrous pass-rusher, he registered 14.5 sacks.

Ray Edwards, DE, Vikings. Age: 26.
Ray Edwards had a tremendous year, registering eight sacks and shutting down the run on his side.

Charles Johnson, DE, Panthers. Age: 25. 
Became the fifth Panther ever to record double-digit sacks (12) in 2010. He was dominant from the left end position all year.

The second, is free safety.

Guys we should target:

Eric Weddle, S, Chargers. Age: 26.  Excluding Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu, Weddle might be the best safety in the NFL

Quintin Mikell, SS, Eagles. Age: 30.
A Pro Bowler who excels both in both run support and pass coverage. Nothing else to be said. WE need him despite age.

Atari Bigby, SS, Packers. Age: 29.
Atari Bigby is an above-average safety who always seems to be hurt. Like Kampman, if he can prove he is healthy, he may become a steal.

I didn't think that the Jags have to spend a lot of money on a super star linebacker  when you have you have a dominate front 4 occupying blockers to allow the linebackers to fly around. Just make sure we get sure tacklers like a Stephen Nicholas, Thomas Howard(Kirk Morrison ex-teammate), or Manny Lawson. If we re-sign Kirk Morrison, I believe we have a defense poised to make a playoff run.

Feel free to agree or diagree.
