"All the turnovers and interceptions come from pressuring the quarterback. So we want to do everything we can to accomplish that."
Jacksonville's pass-rush problems have been years in the making.
The team has been searching for a premier defensive end for a decade, ever since injuries slowed Tony Brackens' career.
They gave free agent Hugh Douglas a $27 million contract in 2003, then released him after one season.
They signed Reggie Hayward to a $25 million deal in 2005. He led the team with 8 1/2 sacks and 59 quarterback pressures his first season, but wasn't the same after rupturing his left Achilles' tendon in the 2006 season opener.
Jacksonville selected pass rushers Derrick Harvey and Quinton Groves with its first- and second-round picks in 2008, but neither made an impact.
The Jaguars tried to make up for those draft-day mistakes by taking a chance on Aaron Kampman in 2010. Even though Kampman was coming off reconstructive knee surgery, the Jags gave him a $25 million contract that included $11 million guaranteed.
Kampman played eight games before injuring his other knee and never recovered. He had four sacks in 11 games over two seasons in Jacksonville.
General manager Gene Smith could have addressed the team's ongoing need at defensive end in the draft, but instead chose to go in different directions. He selected defensive tackle Tyson Alualu (10th pick) over New York Giants star Jason Pierre-Paul (15th) in 2010 and took quarterback Blaine Gabbert (10th) over Houston's J.J. Watt (11th) and Washington's Ryan Kerrigan (16th) last year.
Maybe Lane and Selvie will make a difference. Lane returned from a foot injury last week, and Selvie is close to returning from a sprained knee.
"We're not going to feel sorry for ourselves," Lane said. "Obviously, not getting any sacks for three weeks is frustrating. We're going to take accountability and hopefully get some this weekend."
