Paea, 26, currently ranks No. 35 on our list of the top 101 free agents after a campaign that saw him notch six sacks while finishing fifth in the NFL at his position with 31 quarterback hurries. That pressure speaks to Paea's ability to cause havoc in the pocket, but he offered little help against the run last season.
New Redskins general manager Scot McCloughan has made a flurry of moves along the line, releasing Barry Cofield and Stephen Bowen and adding former Niners and Colts defensive tackle Ricky Jean Francois. Paea is poised to join Jean Francois, Jason Hatcher, Chris Baker, Frank Kearse and Kedric Golston on what promises to be a wholly different defensive front in 2015.
