New York Jets Sign Josh McCown – The Mentor Bridge Narrative Is Back

Joe Caporoso on the New York Jets signing quarterback Josh McCown

The New York Jets signed quarterback Josh McCown to 1 year, 6 million dollar contract today, running back their 2016 strategy at the position. This strategy concedes their young quarterbacks are likely not ready to play, paying an old, mediocre quarterback for 1 year and pegging him as an ideal mentor and bridge to the future.

New York Jets – The Waiting Game

Joe Caporoso on the cap strapped New York Jets and the waiting game they are currently sitting through…

It has been a relatively quiet 2016 offseason for the New York Jets. Things are unlikely to change until they find a way to create breathing room in their salary cap situation. Currently, only the New Orleans Saints have less available money. When the Jets officially file deals for recently signed defensive linemen Steve McLendon and Jarvis Jenkins, the amount will only get lower.

TOJ Pick Six – Free Agents New York Jets Should Sign

Dalbin Osorio with a TOJ Pick Six of free agents the New York Jets should still consider

As we await news on who exactly will be throwing out of the shotgun to a five wide set that has Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, Matt Forte, Bilal Powell, and either Devin Smith, Jace Amaro, or Quincy Enunwa, we decided to look at the six best free agents that the Jets should sign. Beneath the individual’s stats, you’ll see a reason for the signing as well as how the signing would impact the Jets potential draft plans. Keep in mind, these moves are made with the belief that the Jets have an offer ready for Muhammad Wilkerson, will not bring back Ryan Fitzpatrick at his current salary demands, and that D’Brickashaw Ferguson is released. Let’s get to it…

New York Jets Sign RB Matt Forte

The New York Jets have signed free agent running back Matt Forte

The New York Jets made their first big move of the 2016 offseason by acquiring Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte in free agency. We are still waiting on specific contract numbers but the addition will be a big boost to a Jets backfield that lost Chris Ivory yesterday. Forte is a textbook fit in Chan Gailey’s offense and gives the Jets a weapon in both the run and passing game.
