Chris Canty

         </td>
         <td>

Big defensive end can play on the left side in a 4-3 scheme or either end spot in a 3-4. Nothing special as a pass rusher, but an excellent run defender.

         </td>

Bert Berry

         </td>
         <td>

Veteran pass rusher might be best suited to coming off the bench. Had 5 sacks in 2008 despite only starting four games. Played well in the postseason.

         </td>
     </tr>
     <tr class="table_row3">

Kevin Carter

         </td>
         <td>

Another big end. Ideally suited for the left side in the 4-3. Carter will turn 36 in 2009. Lacks the burst to be a top pass rusher, but handles the run well.

         </td>

Igor Olshansky

         </td>
         <td>

Played end in the Chargers 3-4 scheme. Big guy who could shift to defensive tackle for 4-3 teams.

         </td>
     </tr>

5

         </td>
         <td>

Kalimba Edwards

         </td>
         <td>

Pass-rush specialist. Can be effective as a starter, but is most productive coming off the bench.

         </td>
     </tr>
