Senior Bowl Players to Watch – New York Jets

Mike Nolan lists some of the players to keep an eye on in the Senior Bowl that the New York Jets could target on draft day.

After a long week of practices and interviews, the Senior Bowl finally takes place today. This “all-star” game is nothing like the NFL version as there is a lot at stake for the Seniors who were lucky enough to get invited to the game. Although it’s a year dominated by underclassmen, there is still some great talent the Jets organization and fans should be looking at in this game. Here is a list of eight guys on offense and eight guys on defense that we should keep a close eye on.

New York Jets – Picturing A Pragmatic Off-Season Approach

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets taking a pragmatic approach this off-season

Since there are no games this weekend (sorry Pro-Bowl), we are going to pass on our regular 12 Pack and do a quick overview on the Jets off-season approach instead. The 12 Pack will be back next Sunday with Super Bowl predictions and Jets observations.

For the first time since the off-season heading into the 2008 season, the New York Jets are flush with cap space (likely in the excess of 40+ million) and draft picks (8-12). This is both an exciting and encouraging thing for the further development of a young, ascending team who posted a relatively surprising 8-8 record in 2013. However, this type of financial and roster flexibility doesn’t need to lead into foolish overspending and shouldn’t have fans focused on “name” players who aren’t likely or smart targets.

New York Jets Debate Club: The Rex-tension

In our last meeting, the New York Jets Debate Club went back and forth on wether or not Rex Ryan is the man to lead the Jets going forward. Now, just over a month later, the Jets have extended Ryan. The deal tacks two years on to Rex’s remaining one, giving him three years (through 2016) to continue the work he began in ’09. The deal is “based heavily on incentives for post-season wins“.  If Rex does not meet these incentives, he can be let go with minimal loss. If he does meet them, the team has him locked up for the near future. With this information in hand, we at Turn On the Jets present the New York Jets Debate Club, an argument/counter-argument format, to best expound the various cases. Dalbin Osorio will argue in favor of the Rex-tension and Cole Patterson will argue its pitfalls.
