New York Jets – The Time is Now

Stephen Russo with why it is the New York Jets time to finally make a move in the AFC East

Everything new Jets General Manager Joe Douglas has done this offseason proves that he is a man with a plan. He’s also a man with a 6-year deal.

Michael Meegan on how George Kittle and Jamal Adams quest for a new contract mirror each other…

The Jamal Adams contract situation is a story that is not going away anytime soon. The two sides are at a standoff as Jamal wants his money now and the Jets prefer to wait a year on an extension.  While we can only speculate on whether Adams really wants to be here, it is very clear he views himself as more than a safety and wants a record setting deal.  Across the country in the Bay Area, George Kittle finds himself in a similar situation and what happens with that negotiation could shed some light on what Adams will be asking for price wise on his extension…
