New York Jets: Rebuild Reality Check

Dan Essien with a comprehensive review of the New York Jets “rebuild” and how it compares to other teams in similar situations league wide in recent years…

The New York Jets had a very hopeful offseason preceding the 2018 regular season. GM Mike Maccagnan was seemingly able to fix the Jets’ long suffered lack of a franchise quarterback when he secured Sam Darnold. Everything was gravy just a few months ago. However, we’ve reached that inevitable point in the season where Jets fans are struggling to balance long term patience with where the on the field product currently is. Here’s the thing: It should be better. However, that statement might not be for the reason you think.

New York Jets – Maccagnan’s Trades & How They Lead to One More

Clayton Smarslok recaps Mike Maccagnan’s history of trades for the New York Jets and how it could lead to one more major one…

Alas, the Jets finally traded Teddy Bridgewater after the long awaited moment. The Jets received the New Orleans Saints 2019 3rd round pick for Bridgewater and their 2019 6th round pick. Over the course of Maccagnan’s 3.5 year tenure with the Jets, he has not been shy about making trades for players. That is just a bit odd because he has always said from the beginning how he wants to build the roster through the draft, but it shows that that he will do what he thinks is necessary to make the team better. Starting from 2015, let’s go through a quick recap of the trades he has made thus far.

Joseph Ferraiola makes the case for sitting Sam Darnold in year one…

In many ways the 2018 NFL Draft was a critical one for the New York Jets. Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan made a bold decision in mid-March to trade up from the 6th overall selection to the 3rd overall selection that was previously occupied by the Indianapolis Colts.
