One member of the Jets' front office was high on Seahawks' Russell Wilson coming into April’s NFL Draft.
Senior Personnel Executive Terry Bradway championed the former Wisconsin quarterback's cause, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said today. It earned Wilson the nickname of “Russell Bradway” around the organization.
Drafting a QB in the first 3 rounds was a move that was overdue by precisely 1 year. Last year, Terry Bradway was SCREAMING for us to draft Russell Wilson, which we had ample opportunity to do. But because we had already doubled down on Sanchez with a contract extension, taking a QB was apparently not an option.
Idzik finally did what Tannenbaum failed to do; address the QB position when we know the incumbent sucks, without having to trade up or miss out on a higher-rated player. If Tannenbaum had done this, he'd still be our GM.
Link? Are you serious?
If true, Rex should be fed vegetables and then fired
