Redskins | Gibbs is comfortable with defensive line

Gary Fitzgerald, of Redskins.com, reports Washington Redskins head coach Joe Gibbs is comfortable with the team's defensive line. Gibbs said the team did not feel any sense of urgency to add defensive lineman during the draft, and hopes better talent in the secondary will help improve the team's sack totals. "When you look at the overall structure of the defense, what we felt hurt us last year with the pass rush, a lot of it was the coverage. That was the problem for us. With the guys we added at corner [in free agency] and now what we added at safety, hopefully what we can do is play much tighter coverage and much better coverage. It's going to force [quarterbacks] to hold the ball," Gibbs said.
