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.

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.

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.

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.

Frank Giasone on why New York Jets shouldn’t be panicking after day one of free agency
It’s not always easy for fans to sit back and watch as other teams climb all over one another for a chance to sign the most highly-touted free agents on the market. Unfortunately for some Jets fans, inactivity early in free agency equates to failure.
And while many understand that this “inactivity” is an intelligent non-move by Jets General Manager John Idzik, there’s been enough overreaction on Twitter on the first day of free agency to warrant my writing of this article.

The New York Jets released defensive tackle Sione Pouha, what’s next?
The New York Jets released Defensive Tackle Sione Pouha today, in a move that should surprise nobody. He is over 30 years old, has back issues and the Jets spent a 3rd round pick on his long term replacement in 2011, Kenrick Ellis. When healthy last season, Ellis was playing very well and should help fill the void left by Pouha, along with Mike DeVito who the team is making a strong push to bring back. Damon Harrison will also see a bigger role in the defensive line rotation. Pouha’s release frees up nearly 4 million dollars in cap space, giving the Jets some needed financial flexibility in the coming months.
