The next big thing: Jets
January, 22, 2014

By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com
Top priorities for the New York Jets over the next few months: 

nyj.gif1. Trim the fat: The Jets are likely to dump three big contracts before the March 11 start to free agency -- wide receiver Santonio Holmes ($10.8 million cap charge), quarterback Mark Sanchez ($13.1 million) and cornerbackAntonio Cromartie ($15 million). By cutting those three players, the Jets would create $26.1 million in additional cap room, putting them more than $40 million over the salary cap. There probably will be interest in re-signing Cromartie for a lesser amount. 

2. Money to burn: After a year of coping with a salary-cap squeeze, John Idzik finally has the flexibility that every general manager covets. Let's see if he uses the money wisely. His philosophy is to build through the draft, but he'd be crazy not to be active in the free-agent market. First, he should re-sign right tackle Austin Howard and kicker Nick Folk, both of whom will be unrestricted free agents. After that, he needs to find a wide receiver, a tight end and a safety. Names on the radar will be Eric DeckerBrandon Pettigrew and Jairus Byrd, respectively. 

3. Draft for offense: The Jets picked a defensive player with their last five first-round picks. That has to change. With the 18th pick, they need to focus on offensive playmakers. Three names to watch: wide receivers Marqise Lee and Mike Evans and tight end Eric Ebron. If one of the Big Three at quarterbacks falls to 18 -- Johnny ManzielBlake Bortles and Teddy Bridgewater -- they'd have to think hard about going in that direction.

Idzik - he has money to spend and draft picks to use- all indications he is calculated not high risk and expect that to continue

Decker, Pettigrew and Byrd.

 

If we landed 1 of these 3, I would be psyched. 

 

2 of these 3 would be gravy.

First, I love the New pictures at the bottom of your posts. My man JoeWillie, and his trophy. SWEET.

 

Decker YES

Byrd YES

Pettigrew MAYBE (I'd rather draft Ebron or Amaro)

Pettigrew fits like a glove here. Wont break the bank, is the right age for a FA pickup, fills a need, possibly has more upside...Its one of my favorite potential moves.

OTOH I fully expect that as a non-star in the NFL who survives to FA there is plenty to criticize.

I'm sure Cimini is also hearing things inside house: it matches what many here have predicted as well...

Yeah.  Do you think they might consider Bridgewater if he fell to 18?

Cant wait for Geno to shove his rookies year down some throats. I still saw a ton to like - more than I disliked even.

the trick is figuring out if he's the next Aaron Rodgers or the next Brady Quinn.   

 

the truth is nobody knows.    johnny football could be the next joe montana or the next cade mcnown, only time will tell.   

 

It's like Trading Places with Eddie Murphy and Dan Akroyd - some of the success/failure is nature and some is nurture.   Players like Ryan Leaf and Vernon Gholston were destined to bust regardless of who took them.   Othertimes I think it's a function of environment and which team picks you. 

 

Would Joe Montana have been Joe Montana without Bill Walsh?    If the Jets drafted Marino over O'Brien would Marino's career have been the same?   Would Tom Brady have been any good without knowing the defensive play calls from the video support?

Sign me up - go after all 3 and dont trade away picks - use them all to build a team that will last a while.

We had a receiving corps held together by chewing gum and baling wire-then got decimated injuries besides.

 

Give Geno somebody to throw to and make plays and watch his accuracy improve.  Passing accuracy is largely about confidence.

I feel the same, but a whole bunch of that stems from finishing strong.  He had that big swoon in midseason that was brutal.  If he had ended the season performing the way he did in the first Dolphins game instead of the second I would feel way worse about him.  Even with identical stats.

Agreed, the strong finish did it for ne too but I had the faith most of the time anyway.

Confidence is very sexy.  Don't you think?

Brandon Pettigrew drops a ton of balls and is a chronic underachiever. Decent blocker, but we need a guy who can be relied upon to make catches. He can't.

Same thing as  the 19 that passed over Rodgers: NOTHING obviously.
