Sione Pouha Jets

Sione Pouha isn’t much of a pass rusher, but as a 2 down run stuffer, there might not be anyone better in the business. ProFootballFocus had him ranked #1 overall among defensive tackles/nose tackles last season and #2 overall among defensive tackles/nose tackles against the run, only behind Brodrick Bunkley. For someone that good at what he does, 5 million per year (3 years, 15 million with 9.5 million guaranteed) is a bargain. The Jets don’t have another nose tackle on the roster and had to keep Pouha. They were once considering franchise tagging him (upwards of 7 million dollars), so 5 million is a great deal.
