The minimal depth behind those guys scares. Davis will start in Scott's slot, and I'm assuming McIntyre will rotate with Sapp at Pace's spot? At safety, can they re-sign Landry? That defense was the only thing keeping this squad from a 2 win season. Either Gamble kills it with this draft, or he works some real magic in FA, or he lets Rex burn with a bad roster.
All of these cuts are addition by subtraction as far as I am concerned. The Jets were getting nothing from any of these players.
I don't think the Jets are going to be as bad as everyone is making it out. If I was the new GM I would probably keep Rex next year and hope he can keep the defense in the 8-10 range. I would use the first 3 picks on the OL and OLB. Preferably trading down from 8 and still able to get the best RT and OG available and some kind of speed pass rusher.
QB is obviously the biggest question but with a good OL I am ok rolling with McElroy or Matt Moore. This team went to the AFC Championship game 2x with a weak QB and great OL. We aren't getting a franchise QB next season so we may as well get back to a great OL.
