Dalbin Osorio on why the New York Jets need to pay Jamal Adams a long term contract
There is going to be alot of talk over the next couple of months, and it will only intensify as we edge closer to the league year beginning, about what the New York Jets should do this off-season and the different avenues they can take to improve their team.
There will be suggestions on cuts, trade options, trade rumors, free agency targets, mock drafts, more mock drafts, even more mock drafts, and all of this will be designed to both get the fanbase talking and to exhaust every possible solution to end a 9 year playoff drought for the guys in green. As a team that has not particularly drafted well in recent memory, there are not many internal decisions they need to make this year. They already traded Leo Williams, really the last homegrown player they had to decide to keep, and the one thing we can agree on is that this team should look very different next year.
Dalbin Osorio with 20 moves for the New York Jets to make the 2020 playoffs
The 2019 NFL regular season has, mercilessly, come to an end for the New York Football Jets. Now you will hear the spin of what a great year this really was from a group of beat writers that never really held the two men ultimately responsible for the abject failure that 2019 was (Mike Maccagnan then, Adam Gase now). The Jets had a splashy offseason by any objective measure, after they signed the best offensive and defensive players available. They allowed a below average general manager and a below average head coach to oversee their entire offseason, but there really is minimal need to dwell on that as much because the below average head coach got the below average general manager fired when he realized there could really only be one (kind of a reverse Sith operation, for all you Star Wars fans out there), and the Jets were able to save face by hiring a well respected up and comer named Joe Douglas for GM.
He was hired too late in the offseason to really make much of a difference, but he did make three moves that really paid off for this team by trading DE Leonard Williams for two draft picks, and trading for OG Alex Lewis and CB Nate Hairston. The two draft picks netted for Leo Williams should add more young talent to a roster absolutely devoid of it, while Lewis should start at one of the OG positions next year, and Hairston should compete for corner reps with Arthur Maulet to round out what can only be a better group in year two under Gregg Williams. He, also, brought in Braxton Berrios, who solidified the punt return unit and realistically should be good enough to be the 4th wide receiver on this team going forward.

Dalbin Osorio with TOJ Pick Six of questions facing the New York Jets heading into August…
You smell that, Jets fans? That is most definitely the smell of optimism and football returning, as we have reached the two-weeks-away-from-the-Green-&-White-Scrimmage portion of the off-season. We have a new coach that’s been here for about six months, and a new general manager that’s only been here for what feels like six days. It’s year two of Sam Darnold, with an influx of talent on both sides of the ball, and a puncher’s chance of ending a too-long playoff drought. There’s still a few questions this team needs answered so, like a Pat Mahomes errant cross body throw that lands in the arms of Jamal Adams in January to seal a playoff win, let’s take this pick six to the house.
Dalbin Osorio on the New York Jets decision to hire Joe Douglas as their next GM
It wasn’t “normal”, despite numerous instances in recent history showing that it definitely was. It was viewed as unorthodox, when a new head coach may or may not have pushed a bad general manager out because he wasn’t as much of a maniac as he wanted. Fans freaked out when that same head coach, as interim GM, jettisoned players that realistically should’ve been moved months ago.
The circus was back, they said, because Owner Chris Johnson saw in 3 months what alot of people had already seen enough of: Mike Maccagnan was bad at his job and he needed to go. All Maccagnan had shown a penchant for was being able to spend Woody Johnson’s money two offseasons over, and to not pass on high ceiling prospects when he was picking in the top six. Maccagnan had not shown an ability to scout skill position players beyond the first round, Jordan Jenkins and Robby Anderson notwithstanding, and the draft misses were piling up.
Dalbin Osorio with six prospective trades the New York Jets could make tonight
Mike Maccagnan has not been hesitant to make trades around and during the NFL Draft, whether it’s for veteran reinforcements (Ryan Clady) or star players (Brandon Marshall). This year, there seems to be an abundance of guys rumored to be on the block. With the Jets having limited draft capital, it seems like they won’t be getting involved. However, Macchiato Mike would be wise to circle back to teams he has traded with to both add draft capital and/or more talent to a team that is still a few players away from competing for a playoff spot. Here are 6 trades the Jets could make this weekend with partners they’ve had in the past under Mike Maccagnan, as well as who i’d take with the picks received using Matt Miller’s mock draft from this morning as a guide:

Dalbin Osorio with six free agents connected to the current New York Jets coaching staff they could target
The Pick Six is back like we re-signed Ryan Fitzpatrick, as we turn our attention to arguably the most important off-season for the New York Jets. Faster than Paulie can lose a round to me in What’s Your Point, the beginning of the league year is a week away. Armed with almost $100M in cap space, and a few difference makers set to potentially hit the market, the New York Jets need to be in on just about everybody as they try to end playoff drought that’s nearing TEN seasons. Instead of giving you only guys that I would target overall, I wanted to give you a list of guys the team can realistically target that have a connection to the current coaching staff. Let’s do what Sam Darnold shouldn’t do on his first snap next season, and return this pick six:
