Ropati Pitoitua



Ropati Pitoitua is classified a Restricted Free Agent by both and I was under the assumption he was a true Free Agent in 2013. Muhammad Wilkerson, Mike Devito, and Quinton Coples all played more than 50% of the New York Jets 2012 defensive snaps at 3-4 Defensive End. Ropati Pitoitua was on that line in 2011 and got edged out and ended up in Kansas City. Tyson Jackson, Allen Bailey, Daniel Muir and Ropo are the only 3-4 DE's. Some of those might be more 4-3 DT's than true 3-4 ends, but Bob Sutton will determine that.

The 2013 Draft is full of possible 3-4 DE's and 3-4 Outside Linebackers. The Kansas City Chiefs have Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, and Andy Studebaker as the only under contract OLB's as of this moment. We have Dontari Poe, Jerrell Powe, and Anthony Toribio to play Nose.
