Adams played 75 snaps but only 19 at safety.

"Adams played 75 snaps, but only 19 came at safety, which led to some of his struggles against the run as he had to face Buffalo’s offensive linemen in the box." - PFF

Didn't see this discussed yet. Is it because the lack of talent at LB or just game plan? 

I don't see why you'd draft a safety talent like Adams to not play him  there.

Bowles is a dimwit. I've officially turned my rifle on him.

WHY THE **** ARE YOU DOING THIS?

Here's the thing... I don't mind trying to move players around and put them in different spots to see how they react... I'm all for seeing how far their versatility stretches, especially early in the season.

But, unfortunately, TB has a history of letting these experiments go on pretty much all season. He did it with our Dlinemen last year, constantly setting them up out of position. He put CBs that had no business guarding the slot in the slot. It didn't work, but he kept trying.

So... This is worrisome. It's one thing to try something out, or to switch up a game-plan a little to catch a team off-guard... It's another to be stubborn and predictable, even when something isn't working.

The Jets seem to have made a habit of this lately..

Darron Lee is another example. Pass Rusher in college? Let's play him at MLB. He's an idiot

I mean, Lee was never a regular pass rusher in college. He was a 4-3 OLB... Versatility was his greatest strength.

His greatest asset is his speed. He sucks in coverage. Use him as a pass rusher. He could get by several of them with good spin technique

Lee replaced Ryan Shazier at OSU and the Jets apparently thought he could be just like Shazier (an ILB) in the pros. It's looking like they were wrong

Didn't they say the Bills were the #1 rushing team last year?  Guess there was no reason to play too much CF especially when our LB's are very bad.

I mean, he's just not big enough to be an edge rusher in this scheme. He was never going to play that when they drafted him.

I don't see why you'd draft Sheldon Richardson, play him at LBer, then trade him for peanuts and call it a coup either, but hey, what do I know? I'm just a monkey.

So, they should have done what with Sheldon? Give him a big contract when he has 2 strikes? Don't you think if some team, any team, was willing to give up more for Sheldon, they would have offered it?

2 strikes, oh noes

guys need to stop fear mongering about "2 strikes", any half-brained negotiator puts language in the contract that protects the team from that sh*t... there's no reason to give the guy away for peanuts, but because Bowles played him out of position for 2 years, he killed his value... it's got nothing to do with what teams were offering, it's got everything to do with how the Jets forfeited their bargaining position and hurt his value.

When did a second round pick become peanuts?

You have to figure it to be a very late 2nd round pick, and we don't get it until the following season. It's the trade value of a bottom-pick in the 3rd round this season.

They got a second round pick and a player. Not sure what you think they could have gotten in a trade, but I'm listening.....

I figured it would be a late second round pick but I was surprised they got anything for him at all. He's essentially a rental who's one major incident away from a suspension
