Five questions for the New York Jets heading into the 2013 NFL Draft
The 2013 NFL Draft is a little less than one month away. Currently, the New York Jets have the 9th overall pick and then a pick in every round following. Obviously that could be subject to change if Darrelle Revis is traded in the next few weeks. There has rarely been a Jets off-season so well shrouded in radio silence than the current one being led by new GM John Idzik. A newly quiet Florham Park makes the Jets approach to the NFL Draft filled with question marks, here are few of the more prominent ones –

Joe Caporoso muses on the New York Jets after an extended weekend in Las Vegas during March Madness
There is nothing cool about telling somebody you are a New York Jets blogger. When I first met my girlfriend a few years back she would introduce me to her various family and friends by saying this was her boyfriend “the Jets blogger who lives at home with his parents” – so basically this…

The New York Jets have bolstered their pass rush by signing outside linebacker Antwan Barnes
The New York Jets bolstered their pass rush and improved their currently shaky depth at outside linebacker by signing former San Diego Charger Antwan Barnes. This has been a long rumored move as Barnes has experience in Rex Ryan’s defense from the 2007 and 2008 season when both were in Baltimore. The Jets had expressed interest in Barnes in previous years but were never able to get the deal done.

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.

The New York Jets made their first “big” signing of the off-season today by locking up former Oakland Raiders running back Mike Goodson to a 3 year, 6.9 million dollar contract. This is a decision Jets fans should be happy about. Why?

Turn On The Jets writers Joe Caporoso and Chris Gross sort out the Darrelle Revis media game, with help from Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports
The following article is written by Joe Caporoso and Chris Gross
The primary purpose of this website is to provide coverage of the New York Jets that avoids the headline-chasing garbage that has diminished the quality of work done by credentialed writers surrounding the team. A secondary purpose is to call BS when we see poor excuses for journalism or when there is a clear media strategy in place motivating articles.
Darrelle Revis’ most recent contract standoff with the Jets has provided a flood of these articles, with TEAM REVIS (Neil Schwartz, Jon Feinsod, John Geiger and company) clearly being the sourcing on pieces like this by Jason Cole and Manish Mehta.

The New York Jets off-season has been patient and quiet for good reason
The lazy approach to covering the New York Jets off-season (see many of the beat writers) is acting in any way surprised about people like Shonn Greene, Dustin Keller, LaRon Landry and Mike DeVito are leaving. This of course lends itself to catchy terms to be splashed on back page headlines like “REX-ODUS” and shoot out snarky Tweets like “At least they signed Lex Hilliard back #LOLJETS” – Of course anybody with a shred of common sense about the team’s overall situation knew these moves were coming. We keep hearing “what is John Idzik doing?”…”what is the Jets plan” – Let’s look at the bigger picture.
