The Best Free Agent Fit at Every Position for the New York Jets

The New York Jets are a train wreck.

Rex Ryan is permanently inked to Mark Sanchez (literally), the general manager position is vacant and incredibly unappealing to top-notch candidates, and the team has nothing but question marks at quarterback.To add to the team's hardships, they are currently about $10 million over the salary cap.

However, the team seems to be moving towards cap stability, as reported by Rich Cimini of ESPN New York :

As soon as the waiver period opens in February, the Jets will clear $30.7 million off their salary cap in less time than it takes to hail a cab in New York. They will release LB Calvin Pace ($8.56 million savings), LB Bart Scott ($7.15 million), OT Jason Smith ($12 million) and S Eric Smith ($3 million). Those moves will result in only $4.5 million in dead money. The problem—and it's a big problem—is that they will have only 10 starters under contract and not much cap room.

Even if New York gets comfortably under the set salary cap, they will have plenty of work to do when free agency hits.The team has plenty of need areas but not the financial flexibility to make a play for elite free agents. Therefore, the team will be forced to target a handful of lower-tier free agents who can immediately take hold of the starting reigns.With that said, here is the best free-agent fit at every position, considering the team's financial situation and how the player(s) fit into the Jets' offensive and defensive systems.

*Center, Defensive End, Inside Linebacker, Cornerback and Punter are not on the list, as the Jets possess stability at each of those positions and will likely not look to upgrade those areas in free agency

We obviously need to keep Moore and Slauson.

Ducasse may be the answer at LG, but the Pete Kendall turned Adriene Clarke debacle should be enough to dispell the notion that OG is a position we can afford to neglect. I would rather keep them both AND draft a newbie (early on) than let them both float on to newer pasteurs and trust someone new. My favor fave is DJ Fluker (Alabama), a natural RT who could bounce inside with his mauling run block style.

Someone's gonna draft Fluker mid-low rd1 to be RT/LT. supposed to be a physical beast like in the stacy andrews mold. Chance Warmack is an interesting name, if they trade down... a line of Brick - Vlad - Mangold -Chance -Howard could be pretty good.

why not tender all the RFAs at least at low levels. cmon Josh Mauga was made for special teams and nickel downs.

Barton in another thread who said Trade Cro and use that money to resign Landry. +1 that idea.

5 things Jets learned from divisional round

We all know the NFL is a copycat league. That said, the Jets may have been able to learn a thing or two (or five) from the weekend's divisional playoff games -- stuff that could come in handy as they attempt to rebuild from 6-10.

For instance :

1. You need an offense : By that, we mean an offense that can actually score points, something the Jets didn't do very well in 2012. All eight teams scored at least 28 points for a total of 276 points, making it the highest-scoring postseason weekend in history (four games). By the way, the Jets' point total for the season was only 281. Yikes.Defensive-minded critics will point to the wild-card games, noting that no team scored more than 24 points. True, but that was more the exception than the rule. A championship-caliber team must have the ability to let its hair down, so to speak, and play aggressive, wide-open offensive football if the circumstances dictate that approach. Maybe Rex Ryan finally understands that. As he noted last week, he's willing to shift his philosophy.

2. Quarterback play is vital : It's a quarterback-driven league, and that was on display over the weekend. Not one of the eight quarterbacks produced a passer rating lower than 88.3. Each quarterback, even playoff newbies Colin Kaepernick and rookie Russell Wilson, were integral parts of their respective game plan. In other words, they were catalysts, not just game managers -- the approach the Jets often take with Mark Sanchez.A new trend in quarterbacking was on display, meaning the exceptional running skills of Kaepernick and Wilson. Whether they were designed plays or scrambles, both players got results with their feet. In fact, Kaepernick rushed for 181 yards, a league record for a quarterback. He ran for 102 yards and a TD out of the "pistol" formation, which Ryan mentioned last week as a possibility for the Jets. Yes, three of the four remaining quarterbacks are traditional pocket passers, but the wave of the future is upon us.

3. Speed on defense is key : Naturally, the increase in running quarterbacks will force defenses to adjust. You need to fight speed with speed. Anybody who watched the Jets knows that defensive speed wasn't an attribute. They need to get faster, especially on the perimeter.

4. Running backs still matter : Yeah, it has become a passing league, but the four divisional games showed us it's still important to have a threat in the backfield. The four winners each had a back that ran for at least 82 yards -- Stevan Ridley 82, Michael Turner 98, Frank Gore 119 and Ray Rice 131. This doesn't mean Ground & Pound still is in vogue -- sorry, Tony Sparano -- but it's clear that successful teams need offensive balance.This presents a problem for the Jets, whose top back -- Shonn Greene -- could leave as a free agent.

5. A pass-catching tight end helps: Four tight ends caught at least six passes apiece, not counting the Broncos' Joel Dreessen-Jacob Tamme tandem, which combined for nine catches. Tony Gonzalez, arguably the greatest tight end in history, made a couple of huge receptions. Moral of the story: The tight end is alive and well. When teams use Cover-2 defenses to prevent big plays, the tight end becomes an invaluable weapon over the middle.Unfortunately for the Jets, this is a major concern. The tight-end position is in bad shape, with Dustin Keller likely to leave in free agency.

I'd certainly tender Mauga. Guy was playing some. With Mauga, Davis and Harris ILB is okay and they will need to concentrate on OLB.

Cut E. Smith, J. Smith, Scott, Pace. Let Schilens, Moore, Keller, Greene, Devito, and Landry walk. Throw peanuts at Edwards, Slauson, Hilliard, Thomas, Bell, and Folk. Low tender all RFA except the long snapper.

5 Free Agents the Jets Should Look Into...

Let’s have some more fun this morning, Jets fans. Time to play some more fantasy GM. At the time this goes up, we may know who our general manager is, but no matter who it is, we know that improvements have to be made with this football team. “Pro Football Focus” has posted an excellent free agent tracker, and with that, we bring you five free agents, restricted or UFA’s, that the Jets should look into this offseason, in no particular order :

CHRIS IVORY, RB(RFA) :

This is a guy that Jets fans wanted the team to go after in 2012, and after his performance this past year, the want for him remains. In his 3 years in the league to date, he has averaged 5.1 yards per carry. In limited work in 2012, he carried the ball 40 times for 217 yards, a 5.4 yard per carry average. His best work came in week 10 against the Falcons, when he carried the ball 7 times for 72 yards. The Jets are in need of play makers, and this guy is a play maker. Make the call.

REGGIE BUSH, RB :

He hasn’t ever been talked about much for the Jets, but why not? He’s only 27 years old, and has only recorded more than 200 carries in two of his seven NFL seasons, so he clearly doesn’t have a lot of mileage on him. He has come into his own since joining the Miami Dolphins, with 15 touchdowns scored over his two seasons with the Jets rivals. He also is quite good catching the ball out of the backfield, averaging 53.1 receptions per season. He had the Jets attention when they played the first time, if you remember, he was averaging over 6 yards per carry on the game, and there were reports that the Jets looked to “take him out”, whatever that meant. He also has experience in the punt return game. The Jets would be acquiring a versatile football player for their buck, and if he is willing to come to a team that he had a trash talk war with, the Jets should at least inquire. Make the call.

DENNIS PITTA, TE(RFA) :

Another guy that hasn’t been talked about, but should be. Conventional wisdom is that the Jets will let Dustin Keller walk. Assuming that comes true, the Jets will be in need of a big time pass-catching TE. Anthony Fasano, who is also a free agent, is a guy that Jets fans talk about a lot, and might be an easier get. Dennis Pitta, however, has out-performed Fasano. He had his coming out party in 2012, with 61 receptions for 669 yards and 7 TDs, a statline that is on the edge of top tight end status. Pitta has only been in the league for three years, as opposed to Fasano’s seven, so he has much less mileage on him. It might be tough to convince him to leave a team in two straight AFC championship games, but not impossible. This guy would fit the Dustin Keller role admirably, and the Jets would be silly not to explore it. Make the call.

MATT MOORE, QB :

This is a guy that has been talked about a lot amongst Jets fans, and with good reason. In the quest to find competition for Mark Sanchez, if the Jets can’t land a bigger fish such as Matt Flynn or Alex Smith, they need to go ahead and look into Moore. He’s only 28 years old, and hasn’t been a full time starter, so has a lot of gas left in the tank. However, when he has had the chance to be a starting quarterback, he has performed well. In 2011, Moore started 12 games, and threw for 16 TDs against only 9 INTs. He started 5 for Carolina in 2009 and threw for 8 TDs vs only 2 INTs. When Moore has the chance to play, he plays well, and that chance is not coming in Miami. Staying in Miami he will be a career backup, with Ryan Tannehill there for the long haul. It is certainly worth a try, he wouldn’t hurt to have in training camp. The Jets should absolutely make the call.

6894318-300x416.jpg

ANTHONY SPENCER, OLB :

Anybody remember the last time the Jets had a player with double digit sacks? I don’t. Yes, we probably have one on his way their(Coples), and likely two (Wilkerson), but they are not there yet. Could you imagine how good these guys would look if they could add an established edge pass rusher to the mix ? Anthony Spencer could be that guy. He had a career high in 2012 with 11 sacks, and has recorded 22 sacks over the last three seasons. He is only 28 years of age, he’s got something left. It can’t hurt. Make the call.
