  1. The Jets have offered a contract to free agent cornerback K'Waun Williams, a league source told NJ Advance Media. The source said Williams has contract offers from three other unidentified teams. It is not clear how the offers measure up against one another, or what exactly the Jets offered Williams. Jets must fire Darrelle Revis A decision from Williams is expected later this week, the source said. In addition to known free agent visits last week with the Jets and Lions, Williams reportedly visited the 49ers, Vikings, and Dolphins, or at least had arrangements to make those visits. Williams, who turns 26 in July, was born in Paterson and played at Saint Joseph Regional High in Montvale. He went undrafted out of Pittsburgh in 2014 and has spent his entire NFL career so far with the Browns. Williams is 5-foot-9 and 183 pounds.His smaller physical build makes him a better fit in the slot, rather than at outside corner. He was primarily a slot corner for the Browns. The Jets are expected to retain Buster Skrine, their top slot corner, for 2017. But Williams could provide some depth and/or competition. Skrine and Williams overlapped in Cleveland in 2014, before Skrine signed with the Jets after that season. (Skrine's dead money figure of $5 million is probably too high for the Jets to cut him, though that would create $3.5 million in salary cap space.) Between 2014 and 2015, Williams played in 26 games, with 10 starts. His career stats: zero interceptions, 10 passes defended, three forced fumbles, two recovered fumbles, and two sacks. Williams didn't play last season, following an ankle injury. (He is back to full health now.)That injury -- and the treatment of it -- was a point of contention between Williams and the Browns in the preseason. The Browns wound up suspending Williams for two weeks in August and fining him, because he refused to play in a preseason game at the Packers. Later in August, the Browns waived Williams.He signed with the Bears immediately after the Browns waived him, but Williams' contract with Chicago was voided because he failed his physical. After that, Williams did not get picked up by any team last season. Is his prolonged free agency period about to end? And if so, could he get a New Jersey homecoming with the Jets? > http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2017/02/jets_offer_contract_to_njs_kwaun_williams_free_age.html#incart_river_index
  2. Jets need home-run threat at running back, but money is an issue 7:00 AM ET Rich CiminiESPN Staff Writer Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment With free agency approaching (March 9), we're analyzing the biggest needs on the New York Jets' roster, examining possible upgrades: Position: Running back 2017 cap hits of top returnees: Matt Forte -- $5 million Bilal Powell -- $4.6 million Khiry Robinson -- $1.1 million Pending free agents: None. Key stat: Powell had one heck of a season; too bad he had only 131 carries. Check out these league rankings: Second in yards per carry (5.5), fifth in yards before contact per rush (3.24) and third in yards after contact (2.21), according to ESPN Stats & Information. Running back Bilal Powell was highly productive in a limited number of carries in 2016. Brad Penner/USA TODAY Sports Money matters: Believe it or not, the Jets have the third-highest cap total for running backs ($12.2 million), trailing only the Panthers ($12.3 million) and Vikings ($20 million). Between Forte and Powell, the Jets have $6.5 million tied up in guaranteed money for 2017. Big picture: The Jets can live with Forte (31) and Powell (28) for another year, assuming Forte recovers from his end-of-the-season knee scope, but they need to integrate another player into the equation -- a breakaway threat. Neither Powell nor Forte had a run longer than 35 yards. It's tough to operate in today's NFL with a plodding offense. Free-agent market watch: Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount, Eddie Lacy, Latavius Murray, Tim Hightower, Danny Woodhead, DeAngelo Williams, Patrick DiMarco (FB). Also could become available: Adrian Peterson, Jamaal Charles, Doug Martin, Jonathan Stewart. The game plan: Because of the financial commitment to Forte and Powell, the Jets can't afford to make a big splurge. General manager Mike Maccagnan boxed himself in with the Forte deal. If there's a major addition at running back, it would come from the draft. Picking sixth, they probably will be in position to pick Leonard Fournette or Dalvin Cook. In terms of depth, they can't count on Robinson, recovering from yet another broken leg. Hightower, who played under new coordinator John Morton with the Saints, could be a low-cost option as a No. 3 back. The Jets, who didn't carry a fullback last season, will need one for Morton's West Coast system. DiMarco, who turns 28 in April, would be an option. > http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/66897/jets-need-home-run-threat-at-running-back-but-money-is-an-issue
  3. Jets Free Agency Preview: Linebackers Posted 5 hours ago Eric AllenSr. Reporter/Director, Internet ProgrammingEmail @eallenjets On the Inside Four Jets Are UFAs Including a Special Teams Ace Overview Mike Maccagnan wants to build the Jets through the draft and he solidified the linebacker position last April. ILB Darron Lee, an Ohio State product who was selected No. 20 overall, brought an infusion of speed and performed well in his first season. There were growing pains along the way, but Lee appeared in nine contests and finished fourth on the defense with 73 stops. A tremendous athlete in a league that favors speed, the heady Lee could be poised for a sophomore leap. After selecting Lee, Maccagnan came back in the third round and nabbed Georgia OLB Jordan Jenkins. Over the last quarter of the season, Jenkins found his groove while registering 17 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble. The 6’3”, 259-pound Jenkins is stout on the edge and he brings heavy hands to the pass rush. Across from Jenkins, second-year OLB Lorenzo Mauldin experienced some tough luck. Maudlin, a third-round pick in Maccagnan’s first draft with the Jets, missed the final five contests with an ankle injury. His playing time increased before that and Mauldin, who finished with 2.5 sacks, had 18 QB hits.David Harris remained a pillar in the middle, pacing the club with 113 tackles while moving into No. 2 on the Jets' all-time tackles list. VIEW GALLERY | 27 Photos Player Spotlight: David Harris Jets Free Agents LB Bruce Carter (UFA): In his first season with the Jets, the reserve ‘backer appeared in 13 games. Carter finished tied for fourth on the club with five special teams tackles. OLB Mike Catapano (UFA): For a second consecutive season, the Princeton product went to injured reserve in December. Catapano started four times, finishing with seven defensive stops. LB Corey Lemonier (UFA): A third-round pick of the 49ers in 2013, Lemonier was claimed off waivers in late December and played in the Jets’ Week 17 win over the Bills. OLB Josh Martin (UFA): While Martin didn’t get but a few snaps on defense, he was the Jets most consistent special teams performer. Reunited with Brant Boyer, Martin led the Green & White with 14 special teams stops. VIEW GALLERY | 13 Photos Jets' 2017 Free Agents The Market The Jets finished just 299h in sacks (27) last season and 16.5 came from defensive linemen. There will be some prolific pass rushers on the market including OLB Chandler Jones, a 26-year-old former Patriot who racked up 11 sacks last season for the Cardinals. Chargers OLB Melvin Ingram has collected 18.5 sacks over the past two seasons and possesses a non-stop motor. After four relatively quiet seasons to start his career, Packers OLB Nick Perry amassed 11 sacks in 2016. And while Lorenzo Alexander was best known for his special teams prowess from 2007-15, the 33-year-old is coming off a 12.5-sack campaign in Buffalo. James Harrison will turn 39 in May, but he remains a physical specimen and has amassed 15.5 sacks over the past three seasons in Pittsburgh. Limited to 10 games in 2016, Denver Broncos OLB DeMarcus Ware remains a handful when healthy. While all of the aforementioned players predominantly line up on the outside, this is a deep inside linebacker free agent class. Dont’a Hightower (New England Patriots), Zach Brown (Buffalo Bills), Kevin Minter (Arizona Cardinals), Sio Moore (Arizona Cardinals) and Lawrence Thomas (Pittsburgh Steelers) could all become UFA, but the Browns kept former Pats LB Jamie Collins off the market with a four-year deal. Synopsis A legendary competitor, Kevin Greene was hired to lead the Jets outside linebackers. In 15 seasons, the Hall of Famer registered 160 sacks and had double-digit sacks in 10 seasons. He could be a great asset for Jenkins and Mauldin as they look to make pass-rushing jumps in their second and third pro seasons respectively. Solid as a rookie, Lee is hungry to become the playmaker he was at Ohio State. The future is bright and he couldn’t have asked for a better vet to learn from than Harris. Legendary NFL personnel man Gil Brandt, a NFL Media senior analyst, believes Lee has a chance to be a star. Lee is a building block and it will be interesting to see how the Jets continue to fill out the position around him this offseason. > http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-7/Jets-Free-Agency-Preview-Linebackers/c625ad53-dfcf-458e-bf75-273e8075694d
  4. the jets r at the end of a solid OL..
  5. Let me stop you before you assume what's going to be written below: This has nothing to do with the Jets' current $1.491 million in salary cap space. Nothing. Darrelle Revis charged: What does it mean for future with Jets? Yes, they currently rank second-to-last in spending money. But with a few moves, they can easily pull within the upper-third. That's not bad. Not bad at all. But don't get too excited. The Jets salary cap space doesn't carry the same worth as other teams. The Jets aren't starting with this money. They need to create it. Here's why that fact matters: They already declined the option of left tackle Ryan Clady, which added $10 million. Letting receiver Brandon Marshall go instantly frees $7.5 million. Linebacker David Harris and center Nick Mangold add another $15 million. Cutting cornerback Darrelle Revis on March 10 adds $9 million, right tackle Breno Giacomini $4.5 and safety Marcus Gilchrist $4.6. Total tally? $40.6 million. But for every player the Jets cut, they need to find a replacement, which diminishes the overall value of their spending money. Declining Clady's option did free $10 million, but how much is his replacement going to cost? $7 million? $8 million? More than $10 million? Left tackles aren't cheap. That's a net of $2 or $3 million added, or a hit of $1 to $2 million. Cutting Marshall adds $7.5 million. Good, right? Sure, but how much will it cost to find another player of his talent? Marshall was right when he said any team should be "happy" to have him on his current deal. When he's healthy, he's a top wideout in the NFL ... but he's set to be the 16th highest-paid, per OTC. This same equation works for Harris, Gilchrist, Revis, Giacomini and any other player the Jets will consider cutting. Is it good the Jets have this financial flexibility? Sure, but it's not ideal. They'll be letting players go to pay better replacements more money, or worse replacements less.When you look at some of these other teams, they are starting with this money. They're not cutting players to get it. Without declining options, cutting or restructuring, the Browns have $106 million in salary cap space. The 49ers, with Colin Kaepernick under contract for $19.365 million, still have $78 million in cap space. Things aren't as grim as they are with the Cowboys. Dallas is near $13 million over the projected cap of $168 million (per OTC), with little wiggle room at all. But the Jets aren't exactly golden, either.They put themselves in this position two years ago with flashy signings focused too much on the present, not future. So maybe this year general manager Mike Maccagnan should take a different approach? It's not about making a splash. It's about being smart. > http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2017/02/why_the_jets_even_with_cuts_arent_in_a_great_salar.html#incart_river_index
  6. With free agency approaching (March 9), we're analyzing the biggest needs on the New York Jets' roster, examining possible upgrades : Position : Quarterback 2017 cap hits of top returnees : Christian Hackenberg -- $1.1 million Bryce Petty -- $753,000 Pending free agents: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Geno Smith. Key stat: Among the 39 quarterbacks with at least 125 pass attempts, Petty finished last in passer rating (60.0) and last in Total QBR (19.4). Fitzpatrick wasn't much better -- 35th and 32nd, respectively. Money matters: This will come as a shock to no one, but the Jets have the lowest quarterback cap total in the league -- $1.8 million. Actually, Fitzpatrick's ghost is counting nearly three times more than Petty and Hackenberg. That's because there's a $5 million "dead" charge for Fitzpatrick. Big picture: Let's be blunt: The quarterback situation hasn't been this unsettled since early 2009 -- the three-month window between Brett Favre's departure and Mark Sanchez's arrival in the draft. The big story this offseason will be Hackenberg, who didn't see the field as a rookie. He's a bigger question mark now than when he was picked in the second round. The organization hasn't given up on him, but he needs to show marked improvement. It would be a major upset if Hackenberg or Petty emerges as the opening day starter. Free-agent market watch: Kirk Cousins, Mike Glennon, Brian Hoyer, Josh McCown, Matt Schaub, Mark Sanchez, Case Keenum, EJ Manuel, Matt Barkley. Also could become available: Tony Romo, Tyrod Taylor, Colin Kaepernick, Jay Cutler, AJ McCarron, Robert Griffin III. The game plan: The Jets need to come out of this offseason with a starter. Ideally, they'd get him as a free agent, not a trade. This team needs to preserve its draft picks. Finding a match for John Morton's offense (likely a form of the West Coast system) is important. Not counting Cousins, who probably won't hit the open market, the best of the bunch is Romo. He probably will be released, but he's not an ideal fit for the Jets. He's too old (37 in April) and too risky because of durability issues. Bottom line: I can't imagine Romo wanting to play for a rebuilding team. Kaepernick is familiar with Morton from their days with the 49ers, but he'd bring a distraction the Jets don't need. The Jets are expected to have interest in Glennon, but anything more than a one-year guarantee would be too risky for a player with his limited track record. See: Brock Osweiler. Taylor is a dynamic athlete who protects the ball, but he's not natural in the pocket and doesn't have the passing skill to thrive in a West Coast system, which is predicated on accuracy and timing. If the Jets settle for a low-cost, bridge quarterback, the answer could be Hoyer, who is serviceable when healthy. > http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/66890/free-agent-mission-for-jets-find-a-starting-quarterback
  7. the jets probably Won’t be able to Void Revis’ cap hit No matter what happens..
  8. ..The Jets Probably Won’t Be Able to Void Darrelle Revis’ Cap Hit No Matter What Happens In the last day, much discussion has been focused on Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis for reasons that are understandable. He has been charged with multiple felonies.Questions have followed about how this could impact his contract situation. Revis has $6 million guaranteed for 2017. Could it now be in jeopardy? First of all, it is important to note how far away we are from that even being a viable possibility. Revis has been charged, but charges are accusations. Defendants are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and we know none of the facts of what took place.Even if the case was to follow the scenario where the Jets could conceivably seek to recoup the money, it is very difficult to envision that actually happening. Darryl Slater looked into Revis’ contract and found it is theoretically possible depending upon the outcome of this case. In a practical sense, though, the timetable simply wouldn’t work for this to happen no matter the outcome of Revis’ legal matter.The league is unlikely to act until the case is resolved. Nobody knows the facts of the case so that last clause about personal conduct cannot be used until the facts are known. They probably won’t be known until later in the process.The process is unlikely to conclude before March 9, which is the first day of the league year. That is when teams can start using their salary cap space to sign free agents. Slater and Florio both note that if the Jets cut Revis, they would lose any right to recoup that $6 million.The Jets will almost certainly cut Revis before March 9, though. Doing so creates over $7 million in new cap space. If the Jets hold onto Revis past March 9, he still counts against the cap. That is $7 million and change the team cannot use to upgrade the roster. All of this would be to try and regain money when the team will have no idea whether it has a chance to regain it at all.I know people are going to focus on that last “engages in personal conduct” part, but there’s little chance the Jets will have the type of information they would theoretically need by March 9. And having him clogging the cap space by waiting for this to play out would be silly for a lot of reasons. The bottom line is the timeline doesn’t match up for the Jets to get that money back no matter what happens. > http://www.ganggreennation.com/2017/2/17/14654244/the-jets-probably-wont-be-able-to-void-darrelle-revis-cap-hit-no-matter-what-happens
  9. Darron Lee Makes NFL.com's All-Rookie Team Posted 20 hours ago Eric AllenSr. Reporter/Director, Internet ProgrammingEmail @eallenjets On the Inside NFL.com’s Gil Brandt Believes Jets ‘Backer Could Be a “Future Star” Darron Lee had a good start to this NFL career and big things could be on the horizon. Legendary NFL personnel man Gil Brandt named Lee to his All-Rookie Team, stating that the 22-year-old ILB has what it takes to become one of the league’s elite players.“Lee is a linebacker who thrives in a game built on speed. He has a chance to be a future star,” Brandt said. “He finished with 73 tackles — that's a lot of tackles for someone who started just nine times (out of 13 games).” Lee, selected No. 20 overall out of Ohio State last April, had modest expectations when starting his NFL trek.“I definitely wanted to ease into a starting role. That was my goal, to be able to start at some point in the season, whether it be early or later on,” he said at the end of his first campaign. “I just wanted to get to that starting role and at that point contribute, make some tackles and have an impact to help the team. I was starting to get to that and then the Arizona game and it was a roadblock.” An ankle injury suffered against the Cardinals in Week 6 forced Lee to miss three games. The 6’1”, 232-pounder, who was leading the club in tackles at the time of his sprain, returned to action against the Rams in Week 10 and then started the team’s final six games.“At least I know I can belong and I can play,” said Lee, who finished with a sack along with three passes defended. “Now it’s about closing that gap from being so close to making that big play to making that big play.” Following Todd Bowles’ initial plan, Lee came in an as the nickel ‘backer and became a three-down player. He gave the Jets an infusion of speed and pursued well while showing progress in coverage. Lee says he can get better at everything and he’s anxious to become the game-changer he was with the Buckeyes.“Taking the whole film to another level and taking cues to another level, so I put myself in a better position to make that big play,” he said. “And I’d say that’s the next big part is making that big play.” In 2014-15, Lee combined for 27.5 tackles for loss and 12.0 sacks at Ohio State. He has high expectations for himself and doesn’t plan on slowing down.“I haven’t arrived in any shape or form.” > http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/article-7/Darron-Lee-Makes-NFLcoms-All-Rookie-Team/2caa08f8-742e-40ed-84c2-2b625506d9dc
  10. One of the subplots to the Darrelle Revis case is his large contract with the New York Jets. They owe him $6 million even if he's not on the team in 2017, but they could try to have the contract voided because of his legal issues stemming from his alleged involvement in a street fight last weekend in Pittsburgh. At this point -- assuming they release him, which is the likely outcome -- it's unknown whether the Jets would try to recoup the $6 million. We'll walk you through what could develop into a controversy over his money. Here are the particulars : The deadline: As part of the five-year, $70 million contract he signed in 2015, Revis is due a $2 million bonus if he's on the roster the second day of the 2017 league year (March 10). He also has a $13 million base salary that includes a $6 million guarantee. The Jets don't want to pay $15 million to a declining, 31-year-old player, so they could ask him to take a pay cut or simply release him on March 10 to avoid paying the $2 million bonus. They can't do it sooner because of complex rules involving the salary-cap hit. If they cut him, they owe him the $6 million guarantee -- unless he violates the contract. Keep reading. The contract: There's language in Revis' contract that could protect the Jets in a situation like this. According to MMQB.com and NJ.com, the contract states that the guarantee is voided if he's fined or suspended for violating the NFL's personal-conduct policy or "if the player engages in personal conduct reasonably judged by Club to adversely affect or reflect on Club." The last part is vague; there's no language in the contract that mentions specific criminal charges. Revis is charged with four first-degree felonies, including assault and robbery. The league: The NFL is "looking into" the Revis situation, according to a league spokesman. Commissioner Roger Goodell has the power to mete out discipline whenever he pleases, but in most cases, the league waits until the case is adjudicated before deciding whether to impose a fine or a suspension. In other words, it can move along at a glacial pace. There's virtually no chance the league will rule by March 10, when the Jets have to make a decision on Revis. The Jets: So what recourse do they have? One person familiar with the situation said the Jets, if they're determined to chase the $6 million, could suspend him for conduct detrimental to the team before the March 10 bonus deadline. That would be a bold move that undoubtedly would prompt the NFL Players Association to get involved. What makes this tricky is they can't recoup the money once they cut him and write him a $6 million check. That's why they have to figure out something quickly. If they're really fired up, they could cut him March 10 and refuse to pay the $6 million, putting the onus on Revis to challenge it. The likely outcome: The Jets could take a chance, pay the $2 million bonus on March 10 and continue to fight for the $6 million, waiting for the league to impose discipline. But that's not a gimme. Plus, do they want to engage in a protracted battle with one of the best players in franchise history? That would be awkward and messy. What would they do? Ban him from offseason workouts? They'd be on the hook for the entire 2017 salary if he showed up and sustained a season-ending injury. No doubt, the Jets are exploring their options. In the end, the feeling here is they'll cut Revis on March 10, write him a $6 million check and tell everyone it was a football decision. > http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/67027/the-6-million-question-can-jets-have-darrelle-revis-contract-voided
  11. Who goes, who stays: Prioritizing Jets' thin free-agent class 7:00 AM ET Rich CiminiESPN Staff Writer Facebook Twitter Facebook Messenger Pinterest Email print comment The New York Jets have 11 players eligible for unrestricted free agency on March 9. It's not a star-studded group. In fact, they combined for only 37 starts last season. Nevertheless, the Jets are trying to re-sign a handful of them. How I'd rank them in order of importance : 1. LT Ben Ijalana: The Jets are interested in re-signing Ijalana, who replaced the departed Ryan Clady midway through last season. Ijalana (13 starts) made only $840,000 last season on a one-year contract; it'll cost the Jets more this time because he will draw interest from other teams. The Jets have to come out of free agency with a left tackle because they don't have one on the roster. 2. OLB Josh Martin: He was a bright spot on an otherwise moribund special-teams unit. Martin led the unit in tackles, drawing praise from a certain hoodie-wearing coach in New England. The Jets are trying to get a deal done. Martin may opt to test the market because he wants an opportunity to play linebacker. 3. OLB Mike Catapano: There's interest in re-signing the versatile Catapano (four starts), who can play multiple spots in the front seven and special teams. 4. LS Tanner Purdum: Has there been a more consistent player than Purdum over the past few years? Thing is, he's 32 years old and coming off a two-year deal that averaged $905,000 per year. The Jets may try to pinch pennies. They recently signed two unproven long-snappers, an indication they may let Purdum test the market. 5. OLB Bruce Carter: The former starter is a solid depth player, and depth at inside linebacker could be an issue. Nevertheless, there's no urgency to get something done. He's looking at a veterans-minimum contract. 6. QB Geno Smith: If the Jets strike out in the free-agent market, they could try to re-sign Smith on a one-year, prove-it deal, assuming his surgically repaired knee checks out. It's not the ideal situation. The Jets need a fresh start and so does Smith, who probably wants a change of scenery. 7. LT Ryan Clady: The Jets didn't exercise their option, making him a free agent. He could be a post-draft fallback option if they can't secure a replacement. 8. S Antonio Allen: He hasn't found a niche on defense, only special teams. Allen could be a post-draft possibility. 9. TE Kellen Davis: If the Jets switch to a West Coast offense, the profile for tight ends will change. The emphasis will be on pass-catching, not blocking, Davis' forte. His return is unlikely. 10. OLB Corey Lemonier: He had a cup of coffee last season, arriving in time for Week 17. Hey, the Jets are 1-0 with Lemonier. 11. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick: It was fun for a year. The second year, not so much. It's probably best for both sides to move on. In addition, the Jets will have three restricted free agents : 1. C Wes Johnson: He started eight games for the injured Nick Mangold, who could become a cap casualty. To retain Johnson with the low-level tender, it'll cost at least $1.67 million (last year's amount), giving the Jets the right of first refusal. Look for that to happen. 2. CB Marcus Williams: He was exposed a bit last year after a promising 2015, but he's worth keeping around as a fourth corner. He could get the low tender. 3. TE Brandon Bostick: The low tender probably is too steep, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he re-ups on a lesser deal before free agency. > http://www.espn.com/blog/new-york-jets/post/_/id/66987/who-goes-who-stays-prioritizing-the-jets-thin-free-agent-class
  12. Criminal charges means Jets could wait to cut Revis Posted by Mike Florio on February 16, 2017, 11:11 PM EST Getty Images Before cornerback Darrelle Revis had four felony charges filed against him, the Jets faced the question of whether they would pay Revis $6 million to not play for the team in 2017 or $15 million to remain on the roster for the next season. Now, the Jets may have six million reasons to let things play out. Depending on the precise language of his contract, a suspension under the Personal Conduct Policy could void the $6 million, allowing the Jets to cut Revis with no further financial obligation. One factor influencing the decision will be whether the NFL places Revis on leave pending the resolution of any investigation and discipline, since participation by Revis in the offseason program entails risk of a season-ending injury that would make the $15 million fully guaranteed, minus the amount of any unpaid suspension that could be eventually imposed. If Revis is cut before a suspension is imposed, he’ll get the $6 million regardless of what transpires. No matter how it plays out, the Jets’ business decisions regarding Revis have now become more complicated, in a way that could help the Jets end their relationship with Revis and avoid the final $6 million of the $39 million in fully-guaranteed money he received in 2015. > http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/02/16/criminal-charges-means-jets-could-wait-to-cut-revis/
  13. he's better than any OT's we have on our roster now.. sad
  14. Connor Hughes | NJ Advance Media It's only a matter of time before the Jets release Darrelle Revis. If there was any uncertainty (there wasn't), things are relatively certain now. Revis was involved in a street altercation in Pittsburgh earlier this week that all but sealed his Jets' fate. Pittsburgh Police have charged Revis with two counts of felony aggravated assault, one count of felony robbery, one count of felony conspiracy to commit aggravated assault, and one count of misdemeanor making terroristic threats, according to Pittsburgh television station WTAE. Once the Jets cut Revis, they will need to replace him. How can they? Here are several options in free agency and the draft. Trumaine Johnson (Rams) It seems likely Johnson hits the free agent market. Once he does, he'll demand a big contract. With Revis off the books, the Jets can afford it. Johnson is big (6-2, 205), physical and young (27). In 2015 he had 71 tackles and intercepted seven passes. Kirby Lee THE TAPE via Youtube Stephon Gilmore (Bills) Todd Bowles likes physical players with attitudes. That description fits Stephon Gilmore quite well. He's a nasty, in-your-face player who doesn't back away from anybody. He's also quite the ball hawk. In his last three seasons, he has 11 interceptions. The lone concern with Gilmore is his durability. He hasn't played a full season since his rookie year in 2012. Tom Szczerbowski THE TAPE More on the Revis situation Revis charged in assault case Revis' lawyer says he wasn't the aggressor Sidney Jones (Washington) Sidney Jones isn't the sexy cornerback name, but NFL Network's Mike Mayock has him ranked as the top cornerback in the draft. He's big (6-1, 170), which Todd Bowles will like, and is tremendous in press coverage. Depending on how he tests at the combine, he could be an option at No. 6. Kyle Terada THE TAPE Prince Amukamara (Jaguars) Prince Amukamara signed a one-year contract with the Jaguars last offseason. He hoped to play well, then cash in big this year. But no one on the Jaguars played well. So, unlike Gilmore and Johnson, Amukamara could be a cheap low-risk, high-reward signing. Of course, he does come with some performance and injury concerns. In his six seasons, Amukamara has intercepted more than one pass just once (three interceptions in 2014). Likewise, he has only played a full season once (2013). Last year, in 14 games, he had 49 tackles and no interceptions. Rob Foldy THE TAPE Mock draft time Who are the Jets going to take? A.J. Bouye (Texans) Bouye has developed quite nicely for the Texans ever since he signed with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2013. In his four-year career, he has six interceptions and 32 defended passes. This season was when he truly broke out. He finished the regular season with 63 tackles, a sack, interception and career-high 16 passes defensed. Through seven weeks, he was ProFootballFocus.com's highest-rated corner. He intercepted two passes in the Texans' two postseason games. Mark J. Rebilas THE TAPE Marshon Lattimore (Ohio State) Lattimore has been a popular name mocked to the Jets this offseason. It makes sense, too. He's considered by many to be the top cornerback in the draft. He's certainly an option to replace Revis. Mark J. Rebilas THE TAPE Morris Claiborne (Cowboys) Like Amukamara, Claiborne isn't going to command a big-money contract. He's still young and has talent, but injuries have halted his development and on-field production. If the Jets want to save money, Claiborne makes sense. He's a low-risk, high-reward type signing. Joe Robbins THE TAPE Tre'Davious White (LSU) While Jones and Lattimore figure to be first-round picks, White could be there in the second round. The Jets have a ton of holes on their roster. Maybe taking another position in the first, then grabbing White in the second, makes sense?
