Should New York Jets Pursue Chase Daniel?

Dalbin Osorio on if the New York Jets should pursue Chase Daniel at quarterback

One of the bonuses of being patient and letting the market dictate itself before you jump in on free agency is that you are able to take advantage of opportunities that aren’t there at the beginning. When free agency started, the QB market was Mike Glennon, Brian Hoyer, and Colin Kaepernick. As of today, the market includes Tony Romo, Jay Cutler, and Chase Daniel. The Jets are not expected to be in on Romo, have expressed interest in Cutler, but is Daniel the best option aside from re-signing Geno Smith

2017 NFL Draft – Mock Draft 1.0

Kevin Zielaznicki gives his mock of the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft…

With the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in the books and the first wave of free agents signed, many mock drafts are looking way different then they did a week ago. The 2017 NFL Draft is less than 50 days away and there is a ton of uncertainty about the top 10 selections due to the abundance of talent. Who will draft the first quarterback? Where will Leonard Fournette go? What will the Jets do?

Check out my predictions for the first round in my first 2017 mock draft.

New York Jets Sign Kelvin Beachum & Chandler Catanzaro

Don’t panic.

If you follow me on Twitter, you’ve seen me constantly tweet the hashtag #DontPanic as the offseason is now two days old. The New York Jets were in on Nick Perry and Mike Glennon until presumably the price tags for both players became too high. They appeared to not be in on any of the top flight cornerbacks, like AJ Bouye and Stephon Gilmore, and they did not appear to be linked to any of the tight ends like Martellus Bennett either. As exorbitant contracts were doled out ($47.5 million for Pierre Garcon?), Mike Maccagnan smartly sat out the first wave of free agency and it appeared he would not give in to impulse and was very content with resigning core players that performed well and letting the market come to him.

New York Jets – Five Picks That Could End Round 2 Curse

Ryan Marcone on five second round targets for the New York Jets in the 2017 NFL Draft

For many fans, few things sum up the ineptitude of the modern era and serve as a metaphor for the dysfunction of the organization as a whole better than the recent curse of second round draft picks going bust. Since 2001, the dubious honor has gone to the likes of Mike Nugent, Kellen Clemens, Vlad Ducasse, Stephen Hill, and most recently Devin Smith and Christian Hackenberg.

Considering the rule of thumb that players taken in the first four rounds should eventually be developed into starters, and players taken in rounds one and two should be significant contributors from their rookie year, this is a major problem. It’s gotten to the point where fans are unsure if the Jets just pick bad players in Round 2, or if players become bad because the Jets picked them in Round 2. But luckily for the Jets, this year’s draft class is exceptionally deep, so there are several players who may be on the board that can end the losing streak. Here are my choices for Pick 39. Continue reading “New York Jets – Five Picks That Could End Round 2 Curse”

Could New York Jets Turn To Familiar Face At QB?

Scott Mason on the New York Jets needing to potentially turn to a familiar face at quarterback…

So much for Tyrod Taylor, Jets fans.

The 27 year-old quarterback, who was the object of much affection on Jets twitter, broke many green hearts when he agreed to restructure his deal with the Buffalo Bills just days before he was widely expected to be cut.

Taylor is by no means a perfect quarterback.  While his athleticism and arm strength are off the charts, he is, at his core, a one-read quarterback who does not see the middle of the field.

New York Jets: Offseason Do’s and Don’t’s

David Aitken on the DOs and DONTs for the New York Jets this offseason

The Jets have cleared plenty of cap space, and later this week we’ll see how they intend to spend it. The early signs point to ditching the “competitive rebuild” in favor of an approach that puts resources into getting better beyond 2017. Here’s what I would like to see in order to get the Jets back on track.
