That’s why it’s not wise to put a lot of cap space in edge rushers. The NFL will just allow them to be held.

It seems to be trending that way, unless the player is so physically dominant to fight through it all…like a Myles Garrett or JJ Watt. Or…you have to be schemed around it…

Basically, you have to be so good you make the refs oblige.

Or you pair them with a good DT. It’s hard to hold both and get away with it.

I personally think it’s a better building plan to put your cap space in DT’s and DB’s.

A good DT needs to be double teamed. Pair him with good CBs and your average edge rusher should be able to apply pressure in a single matchup.
