New York Jets – You Can Only Pay One Safety

Dylan Price on the New York Jets being unable to pay Marcus Maye long term

Jamal Adams is one of if not the most crucial player to the New York Jets success. He’s a dynamic player capable of making an impact in a variety of ways.

New York Jets NFL Draft Deep Dive – Jabari Zuniga

James Kuntz with a deep dive on New York Jets third round pick, Jabari Zuniga

Perhaps the most unpopular Jets Draft Pick of Day 2 is Florida Defensive Lineman Jabari Zuniga. Zuniga is simultaneously an intriguing and confusing prospect: despite being listed as an EDGE Rusher, Zuniga is far more effective on the interior. Adding even more complexity to his evaluation is the fact that, when lined up as a 4-3 end, Zuniga’s above-average explosiveness is often nullified by his inability to consistently react to the snap on time.

Finally, although Zuniga possesses the strength to consistently cave the pocket with his bull rush, he rarely sacks the Quarterback. The question is inevitable: how should we view a player with such anomalous versatility and evident physical talent, who consistently fails to show up on the stat sheet.
