Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets trading Jamal Adams
Yesterday was really the last straw, huh? You could kind of see the writing on the wall coming with Jamal Adams, what with the Jets all-pro safety just going scorched earth on his head coach and general manager: lets not forget this is the same coach he gave a vote of confidence to at the end of the season, after he threw a tantrum because his general manager had the unmitigated gall to answer the phone when teams recognized his talent and wanted to trade for him. We may never know what really happened to lead the Jets to this point, today, where on July 25th they sent their best draft pick since Darrelle Revis packing.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing DB Logan Ryan
After trading a sixth rounder for former 2nd rounder Quincy Wilson, signing Pierre Desir, re-signing Brian Poole, and drafting UVA standout Bryce Hall you’d think the work in the cornerback room for the Jets was done. Joe Douglas laughs at your assumptions, as its been reported that the New York Jets are signing former Titans Cornerback Logan Ryan.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting OL Cameron Clark in the 4th round of the NFL Draft
The New York Jets continued to build their offensive line in the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting offensive tackle Cameron Clark from Charlotte with the 129th overall pick. Clark is likely to slide inside to guard, where we could potentially compete for playing time as a rookie at one of the Jets overall weaker positions.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Baylor WR Denzel Mims in the 2nd round
The New York Jets traded back 11 spots in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and acquired an extra third round pick, yet still found a way to grab Baylor WR Denzel Mims with their pick, a player who fell a bit further than most expected. Joe Douglas has had an early concentration on offense, starting with tackle Mekhi Becton and following up with Mims, addressing two major needs and helping Sam Darnold in the process.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Louisville OT Mekhi Becton
The New York Jets got their offensive tackle with the 11th overall pick in the NFL Draft, landing the player we most commonly mocked to them in Mekhi Becton, from Louisville. It was somewhat surprising the Jets went Becton with Tristan Wirfs on the board but Becton has the most upside of any tackle in this class and has a freakish combination of size and athleticism.
Michael Meegan with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing ILB Patrick Onwuasor
Joe Douglas returned to the Baltimore well as the Jets have agreed to a 1-year deal with ILB Patrick Onwuasor. He is being reunited with former teammate CJ Mosley, who he formed quite the tandem with in 2017- 2018 when he racked up 149 tackles, 12 TFLs, 6 sacks, and 3 forced fumbles over the two-year stretch. His numbers dipped across the board in 2019 without Mosley and his PFF grade shot down almost 20 points from a 67.1 in 2018 to a 49.4.
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing WR Breshad Perriman to a one year deal
The New York Jets worked towards filling the hole left by Robby Anderson by immediately pivoting to signing free agent Breshad Perriman to a one year deal with 6 million guaranteed. Perriman’s contract continues Joe Douglas’ pattern of making a concentrated effort to have no contracts bleed into the 2021 season…
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing CB Pierre Desir
When the New York Jets cut CB Darryl Roberts, it stood to reason that GM Joe Douglas had a move in mind to add a veteran at cornerback so Gregg Williams and the defensive coaching staff didn’t have to go into the draft with Bless Austin and Arthur Maulet as the only options on the outside. Well, not even 24 hours later that move happened as the Jets signed former Colts CB Pierre Desir.
Dalbin Osorio with initial reaction to the New York Jets signing OG Greg Van Roten
The New York Jets continued their complete makeover of the offensive line by signing former Panthers offensive guard Greg Van Roten. Signing the 30 year old former Pennsylvania Quaker probably signals the end of Brian Winters’ tenure with Gang Green. The Jets will save $7M in cap space with his release. His release, coupled with Darryl Roberts’ earlier release, nets the more financial flexibility to continue adjusting their roster…
Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets bringing back slot corner Brian Poole on a 1 year deal
One of the top priorities for the New York Jets this offseason, when it came to their internal free agents was bringing back slot cornerback Brian Poole. They accomplished that today with a 1 year, 5 million dollar contract, avoiding creating an unneccessary hole in their secondary.
