    As the Will and also one of our best cover guys we should see Brown in coverage quite a bit. So while I think he will get a good number of sacks I'm not sure he will lead the team. Ayers on the other hand might get some sacks blitzing as well as opportunities as a DE.

    But I do think instead of one guy getting 15 or more sacks we are looking at a bunch of guys with 7 or so. Klug could get back close to the 7 he had as a rookie. Morgan and Wimbley will probably be in that range. And Brown and Ayers as well. That is ~35 sacks spread across those guys and not much different than what those guys did last season except Klug. The other guys will get a few (Casey, Martin, Hill maybe about 3 each?).

    The Broncos and Rams tied with 52 sacks for the NFL lead last season. The Titans had 39 and were tied for 9th last season. Figure a few more sacks (guess mid 40s) if we can get better pressure up the gut, have better coverage and have fresh legs out there.
