So you’re saying there’s a chance? — Not locks, but very distinct possibilities
Olivier Vernon, Defensive End
Talk about earning a contract. Not only has Janoris Jenkins lived up to his expensive offseason deal– as has defensive end Olivier Vernon, who has been the focal point of New York’s defensive line all season.
Vernon has 59 combined tackles, 8.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and 7 stuffs this season, showing his versatility. He has made massive impacts both in run and pass defense. NFL.com’s Chris Wesseling had Vernon just outside the Top Ten in his Defensive Player of the Year ranking, and Bleacher Report projects that Vernon will make the Pro Bowl. While he is not necessarily a lock, it would be a notable snub if the former Dolphin wasn’t recognized for his outstanding efforts.
