Teams in need of a pass rusher are in luck this offseason. There are edge rushers aplenty in the draft, and for teams willing to spend, they'll have their pick of a deep pool in free agency.

Headlining that pool of talent is Justin Houston and Jason Pierre-Paul, the former the NFL's leading sack-getter in 2014. If a team is unwilling to break the bank, there are plenty of Plan Bs: Jerry Hughes, Jason Worilds, Brandon Graham, Pernell McPhee and Brian Orakpo. And don't forget about Greg Hardy, who's still on the Commissioner's Exempt List but is just a year removed from logging 15 sacks.
