Why The New York Jets Need To Pay Jamal Adams

Dalbin Osorio on why the New York Jets need to pay Jamal Adams a long term contract

There is going to be alot of talk over the next couple of months, and it will only intensify as we edge closer to the league year beginning, about what the New York Jets should do this off-season and the different avenues they can take to improve their team.

There will be suggestions on cuts, trade options, trade rumors, free agency targets, mock drafts, more mock drafts, even more mock drafts, and all of this will be designed to both get the fanbase talking and to exhaust every possible solution to end a 9 year playoff drought for the guys in green. As a team that has not particularly drafted well in recent memory, there are not many internal decisions they need to make this year. They already traded Leo Williams, really the last homegrown player they had to decide to keep, and the one thing we can agree on is that this team should look very different next year.

New York Jets – NFL Draft Second Tier Options

Joe Belic with second tier options for the New York Jets with the 11th overall pick in the NFL Draft

Jets fandom can rest assure Joe Douglas will be active in free agency and plug several holes (especially along the OL) prior to the draft; this will give the Jets much needed flexibility come draft day.  There is a good possibility Andrew Thomas, Tristan Wirfs, Jedrick Wills, Jerry Jeudy, and CeeDee Lamb are all off the board when it’s time for the Jets to select at 11. In this week’s “Joe Jet 5”, I consider routes the Jets could potentially take if the players deemed most coveted aren’t available.
