NFL Playoff Free Agent Guide – TOJ

Mike Nolan takes a look at some of the 2014 Free Agents that the New York Jets should be scouting in the NFL playoffs.

It’s obvious that the New York Jets have some holes they need to fill if they want to get back to playing football in January. John Idzik has made it clear that his offseason mantra is to use free agency to fill those holes so that the Jets can take the best player available when it comes time to draft. I’m sure most Jets fans will be glued to the TV over the next few weeks despite their team not playing. Here are some potential free agents that the Pro Personnel Staff should be taking a closer look at throughout these playoffs at some positions of need.

A four part series. Covers four offensive positions of need for the New York Jets (QB, WR, TE, & G), free agent scouting reports, and draft options.

The New York Jets could have as many as twelve draft picks in 2014. As they stand right now, the Jets have $25,861,726 in cap space. With expected cuts of Santonio Holmes, Mark Sanchez, and Antonio Cromartie, the Jets should have $51,911,726 in cap space. That gives them a lot of room to work with.

New York Jets Countdown to the 2014 Offseason: Geno Smith and the Future on Offense

A four part series. Covers four offensive positions of need for the New York Jets (QB, WR, TE, & G), free agent scouting reports, and draft options.

The New York Jets sit at 5-7 with four weeks left to play. Following three straight blowout losses, the team and the fan base are understandably disheartened. After a 5-4 start, with wins over the juggernaut Patriots and Saints, playoff pipe dreams no longer seemed so farfetched. However, those miraculous wins have mislead the organization and its followers. The 2013 season was always a rebuilding year. It was always about the future, seeing what the team had to build on. The Jets surprised people. The Jets surprised themselves. However, forgetting the blueprint can be dangerous and set the franchise back years. With that in mind, it is time to change the conversation. This offseason, not this season, will go a long way into determining the Jets fate for the foreseeable future.

Ed Reed: Expectations with the New York Jets

Ed Reed: nine time Pro Bowler; eight time all pro; 2004 Defensive Player of the year; sixty-one career interceptions, including a record nine in the post season and a pick six in last year’s Super Bowl; undoubtedly, a future Hall of Famer. Quite the resume. His past pedigree aside, what can Ed Reed bring to the 2013 New York Jets?

New York Jets Sign Safety Dawan Landry

Thoughts on the New York Jets signing safety Dawan Landry

The New York Jets made a needed addition to their perilously thin safety position today by signing veteran Dawan Landry, older brother of LaRon who was the team’s starting safety last season before moving on this off-season. Dawan has experience in Rex Ryan’s defense from his time in Baltimore and will immediately step into the starting line-up and give the Jets more flexibility in the upcoming NFL Draft.

New York Jets – An In-Depth Look at Willie Colon

Mike Nolan with an in-depth look at recently signed New York Jets Offensive Guard Willie Colon.

With Matt Slauson recently signing with the Chicago Bears and the impending departure of Brandon Moore, it is becoming more and more likely that New York Jets free agent signing Willie Colon will be a starter at one of the Guard spots. Colon was signed to a one year, $1.2 million dollar deal, the right price for a guy who has played only 12 games in the past 3 years.

New York Jets – An In-Depth Look At DT Antonio Garay

Despite not making any big splashes in the first week of free agency, New York Jets General Manager, John Idzik, has been seeking low cost, low risk veterans with versatility and potential upside. So far, Idzik has signed RB Mike Goodson, Guard Willie Colon, Defensive Tackle Antonio Garay, and most recently Outside Linebacker Antwan Barnes.

While Goodson, Colon, and Barnes each have a high chance of earning a starting job when the Jets meet in Cortland for training camp this summer, Garay will more likely be asked to serve as a backup in the defensive line rotation, with Quinton Coples, Muhammad Wilkerson, and Kenrick Ellis poised to be the starters on the defensive front.

New York Jets Sign Willie Colon To Start At Guard

The New York Jets signed former Pittsburgh Steelers OL Willie Colon

The New York Jets signed former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Willie Colon to a 1 year, 1.2 million dollar contract today. Colon had spent his entire career (2006-2011) playing Tackle before moving to Guard last season, where he graded out as a top 15 run blocking Guard and top 25 pass blocking Guard according to Pro Football Focus. However, he was one of the most heavily penalized Guards in the league and did miss some time with injuries.
