like this signing but Laron is a far better safety. It's better than starting josh bush but they likely will draft more.

I like this signing a lot. Relieves a lot of the pressure to take safeties in the draft, but still allows the Jets to go after that position if they think the value is there.

I think this year there is a reason to draft safeties.  Seems like there are plenty of players there.

I'll be shocked if we don't draft a safety still...and I'll be similarly shocked if that draftee isn't starting.

my guess is he's starting next to Josh Bush, not instead of.

Why do I feel like Woody made a gread decision by hiring Idzik? He's been really impressive, which is a shame because all he's doing is his job. Nothing overly special. Tanny really sucked.

No one knows for sure, since he got fired.  But my guess is Tannenbaum would have extended Harris for another 3 years, converted more of Sanchez's guaranteed salary to signing bonus with more "we believe in Mark" nonsense, and would have done the same with Holmes instead of getting a simple pay cut as Idzik did.  This would have cleared up another $10M or so that he would have blown on re-signing more of our free agents or other teams' UFAs (and throwing away 3-4 compensatory picks in the process).  Not to mention, who knows what mess he might have made with Revis, since they do have some less than cordial history together.  When a guy is making moves to save his immediate job, he'll do a lot of things that make little sense long-term without thinking it through or examining all angles (Sanchez, Tebow, Harris, etc.).

 

Conversely, it seems if Idzik is going to bring back one or more of our UFAs my guess is it'll only be in the summer or after it's obvious that the other 31 teams have all passed on them (in which case we wouldn't have gotten compensatory picks for them anyway).

im all for improving the team but let's get real, Tanny's signing of Laron last year on a show me deal was a great move. Laron made the pro bowl. Dewan is JAG.

Agreed, but it is very important that he is not an overpaid JAG.

Perhaps, but it still doesn't offset the countless mind-numbingly stupid deals Tanny has made too.  Let's remember, that deal was part of the same offseason that included the Tebow trade and Sanchez extension, probably the two dumbest moves in all of the NFL last year, and both possible contributors to the Jets' inability to retain the younger Landry brother.

 

Then again, I think it's pretty well established at this point that you may put a little more value on one season of a Pro Bowler who then walks than many others here would.

So what exactly is your point, that Idzik should instead follow the Tanny model of making a position more expensive and worse (e.g., 2012 QBs)?  And let's not even get into the mess that Tanny left for Idzik that is massively impacting how he is handling this offseason.

 

I know you have a long history of pulling sentences from other's posts completely out of context, but is this now your method for evaluating the team's roster moves too?

I was talking to one specific post that somehow Idzik is better than tanny cause he signed Dewan. I think that's  flat out wrong. The safety position got worse, fact. How is Idzik doing a better job exactly? Cause of cheapness?

That just seems like faulty logic.  Laron was no longer a part of this team as he was only signed to a one year deal by Tanny, thus losing him is not the same as Idzik just cut or replaced him.  If you're going to compare our safety position that has been attributable to Idzik, you compare it to having Bush and Allen and now because of Idzik, we have Dawan and Bush/Allen.  He improved our safety position, not the other way around.  Unless you really wanted him to overpay for Laron for four years.

I wanted the best Jets safety since Victor Green to continue being a Jet. we could call it overpaying or we could just call it paying. talent costs money and so far Idzik has proven excellent at filling roster spots cheaply. Whether it's a good thing or not I guess we can wait and see. My point here was to rebutt the idea that replacing Laron with Dewan was some sort of genius move.

Understandable and I agree to a point. I just found it a bit funny seeing how you spent a number of weeks leading up and into free agency saying how Laron wasn't worth the contract he got and that maybe the influx of safeties would lower his tag.  I know it's mostly devil's advocate on your part, but I agree with your overall point that what Idzik is doing isn't anything to be confused with genius.  I like his moves thus far, but I'll wait to see how they pan out before making and decisions.
