New York Jets – Wilkerson Choices and Roadmaps

Daniel Aitken on all the available courses of action the New York Jets can take with Muhammad Wilkerson and which one would be the most logical

Whether or not to trade Muhammad Wilkerson following receiving the franchise tag is a point of major contention among New York Jets fans. I highlighted the arguments of both sides in my Five Difficult Decisions piece last month, but here I’ll try to provide a better visualization of the Jets offseason options depending on moves. I’ll look at three scenarios: trying to keep both Wilkerson and Harrison, keeping just Wilkerson, and trading Wilkerson but keeping Harrison.

New York Jets – The Comprehensive Todd Bowles Review

David Aitken reviews New York Jets Head Coach Todd Bowles first year on the job

A 10-6 record and six win improvement from the prior season. Franchise record breaking acquisitions. A painfully blown opportunity for a hot entrance into playoff football. Reflecting on this past season, determining whether to categorize Todd Bowles’ first season as a success or failure can be a hard and frankly arbitrary question to answer. Is it a success based on the massive improvement, or a failure based on the lack of playoffs? Fortunately, I am not going to bother to answer that question. Instead, I’ll look at what Bowles has done and answer the most important question – has he shown he has what it takes to lead the New York Jets forward?
