A round-up and commentary on the New York Jets early movement in free agency
The New York Jets have started their off-season with a handful of small transactions and rumors swirling about their potential interest in certain players. There hasn’t been any shockers yet but they did lock in quarterback David Garrard to a contract today with the terms still undisclosed. This was an expected move and one that doesn’t need to be overreacted to on either end of the spectrum.

The New York Jets should cut Tim Tebow as soon as possible
For some reason the New York Jets decided to have a conference call with fans this past week featuring new GM John Idzik and Head Coach Rex Ryan. Not surprisingly there was a question about TIM TEBOW that was responded to in a manner that hinted he could remain on the team next season. Shame on Idzik for not answering the question “We don’t want Tebow. Nobody wants to trade for Tebow so we are going to have to cut Tebow…and there goes any small percentage of trade leverage we had.” By giving the only answer he had a choice to give, a non-answer, he spawned articles like this from Ian Rapoport at NFL.com and a slew of others arguing for the Jets to keep Tebow. Um, what?

Turn On The Jets with a preview of how the New York Jets could handle free agency, which begins on March 12th – Version 1.0
NFL free agency kicks off on March 12th, only 8 days from today. The New York Jets are not expected to be overly active considering their salary cap situation. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering how the team has been run in previous years, they need to sit out the first wave of overpaid free agents and settle for 2nd and 3rd tier players who they can get at bargain rates. The focus for this team needs to be on building through the NFL Draft. Regardless, there will be some measure of activity from the Jets in the coming months, here is the first version of our round-up heading into next week

The New York Jets rumor mill is producing nothing but overreactions and bad jokes with no long term perspective in mind
Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com appropriately called making fun of the New York Jets our “fifth national sport” this morning on Twitter. At this point, it doesn’t matter what rumor the team is associated with or how flimsy that information is, the only object of every beat writer and major NFL writer is to sprint to the keyboard and fire off a snarky Tweet preceded by “LOLZJETS…AMIRITE?” Context isn’t important, looking at the broader picture isn’t important and certainly common sense isn’t important.

Is it only a matter of time before Darrelle Revis is traded to the San Francisco 49ers by the New York Jets?
The San Francisco 49ers traded quarterback Alex Smith to the ever-foolish Kansas City Chiefs for a 2013 second round pick and a 2014 conditional mid-round pick today, leaving them with an expected 15…yes 15 draft picks this April. Five of those picks are in the top 100 – 31st, 34th, 61st, 74th and 93rd overall. Darrelle Revis-Bait? It sure sounds like it.

The New York Jets and their fanbase need to embrace the needed rebuilding process that will occur during the 2013 season
The New York Jets current level of roster talent and salary cap situation makes rebuilding an inevitable necessity. Rebuilding is the type of word people don’t hesitate to throw around when they are watching their team get Butt-Fumbled on National Television to their “biggest rivals” but when it comes to the actual practice, teams and fans get squeamish about it. Make no mistake, the New York Jets best approach to building a sustainable long term contender is cleaning house and making roster decisions with an eye towards 2014 and beyond, not 2013.

The Turn On The Jets 12 Pack with 12 positive…yes positive things about the 2013 New York Jets
When evaluating the New York Jets current situation it is easy to come off sounding abundantly negative all the time. We aren’t going to sugarcoat anything on this site, the team isn’t in a good situation right now and is sorely lacking in talent on both sides of the ball. There’s not much sense to providing false hope or hype to a roster in dire need of rebuilding. HOWEVER, there is always some positives somewhere right? Even for the 2013 New York Jets, let’s take a look at them
