Initial Reaction: New York Jets Sign CB Brian Poole

After making the big moves earlier on in the week, the Jets begin to fill out the roster in the latter waves of free agency starting with CB Brian Poole. Poole will take over for Buster Skrine as the primary slot corner.

This appears to be an almost lateral move from Buster Skrine. I asked Charles McDonald earlier this week what his assessment of Poole was and he had this to say:

He seems to be one of the guys Gregg Williams prefers in his defense, in regards to a blitzing slot corner. He won’t be able to cover the faster slot receivers but will be serviceable in the slot. Skrine was a fine player but for the money he was making, you couldn’t justify him. Poole comes on a cheaper deal and can provide you with a similar skillset. I would still expect them to continue to make deals to sure up the secondary depth considering they’re main guys right now are Trumaine Johnson, Darryl Roberts and now Poole.

Another interesting stat, courtesy of Michael Nania: Poole averages almost two less penalties per 16 games than Buster Skrine. Hopefully he shows up for the two Dolphins games a year unlike Skrine.

New York Jets 7 Round Offseason Mock (V. 2)

Greg Armstrong With His Second 7 Round Offseason Jets Mock…

It’s Friday! Here’s my second 7 round offseason Jets mock with some trades down. As always, this was done with the Fanspeak mock draft simulator so some of the available players didn’t quite fit the rounds they are ultimately going to be taken in but I tried to make it as realistic as possible. If you have any issues, you can direct your hate to me on Twitter.

New York Jets 7 Round Mock Draft (V. 4)

Greg Armstrong With His New York Jets ’19 Seven Round Mock, Version 4…

The Jets won a game! While winning at this point of the season is pointless because of draft position, seeing Sam Darnold lead a fourth quarter comeback like that is much better than gaining the one or two draft positions with a loss. The Jets dropped to fifth (previously third) in the draft order which opens up a whole bunch of possibilities. Here’s my fourth version of a Jets seven round mock done on Fanspeak. (more…)

New York Jets Week 14 Report Card

Greg Armstrong With His Week 14 Jets Report Card…

At this point in the season, almost all wins mean nothing in the grand scheme of things. All they do is anger the fanbase come April when the draft position isn’t as good as it could have been. Sunday was different, however. On Sunday, the Jets saw their franchise QB lead two touchdown drives to win the game. A win that meant more in the grand scheme of things than really any December win can for a 3-9 football team.  (more…)
