Is Pass Rusher Still A Premium Position?

Sean Payton says yes in this thought provoking article on the subject.

BB says no. Seymour and Chandler Jones trades offer proof of that.



Gaspar also says yes in his controversial article that criticizes BB for the Chandler Jones trade. Part of Bill Belichick's coaching genius is overcoming some of his ...

Is it really worth $14M/ to have a great DE?



When BB traded Chandler Jones because of his premium asking price, BB freed up cap space and got draft picks to add 4 very good players. BB's return on that trade turned out to be Stephon Gilmore, Joe Thuney, Malcolm Mitchell & he had $3M left over to add someone like Burkhead for the exact same money as CJones was paid.



As for the Cardinals, they were 13-3 the year before acquiring CJones and they are 15-16-1 since (yeah, I know there are multiple reasons for that) but the Cardinals' defense actually got worse after adding Jones.



Ok, so where do you stand on the pass rush issue? Over paid and over rated or a good value for the dollars spent?
