The 2019 AFC Quarterback Hierarchy

Joe Caporoso on the current hierarchy of quarterbacks in the AFC and where the New York Jets need Sam Darnold to fit in next year for a successful season

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing RB Le’Veon Bell

The New York Jets signed running back Le’Veon Bell, the top available free agent on the market, to a 4 year, 52.5 million dollar contract with 35 million guaranteed.
