  1. This should be the same penalty from the NFL against New England as the deflated balls fiasco since technically it’s the same thing
  2. 4 potential trade destinations for Jets LB Darron Lee Almost four years after the Jets drafted him 20th overall, linebacker Darron Lee might on his way out of New York. The Jets gave C.J. Mosley a huge $85 million contract to start alongside Avery Williamson in the middle of the defense, effectively making Lee expendable at the linebacker position. Gregg Williams could find use for Lee, but it would most likely be on the bench and in sub packages. Another option is to trade Lee. In three seasons with the Jets, Lee failed to live up to his first-round expectations. He tallied 238 combined tackles, but only four sacks and 17 tackles for a loss. Lee offers some intrigue, though. He’s only 24 and his speed and coverage abilities could make him valuable if used properly. WIth that in mind, here are four potential trade suitors for the Jets defender. Denver Broncos The Broncos are in desperate need of an inside linebacker after letting Brandon Marshall walk this offseason. Denver doesn’t have much depth at linebacker behind edge rushers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb. Todd Davis, the Broncos other inside linebacker, is a similar build to Lee. New Denver head coach Vic Fangio knows how to utilize players built like Lee. When he was the defensive coordinator in Chicago in 2018, Fangio turned first-round pick Roquan Smith into a 112-tackle linebacker. Smith and Lee are almost identical in size and ran similar 40-yard dash times at their respective combines. Without much linebacker depth, it wouldn’t be surprising for Fangio and the Broncos to take a flier on the Jets’ former first-round pick. Oakland Raiders The Raiders are in the midst of a massive rebuild on defense after trading away Khalil Mack and really need an inside linebacker. Oakland has one of the worst linebacker corps in the league, and current starters Jason Cabinda and Marquel Lee have a combined for 19 starts and 111 tackles in three total seasons in the league. Jon Gruden has plenty of draft capital and could easily part with a mid- or late-round pick to secure the young Lee, who would immediately upgrade his defense. Darron Lee could try his luck in a 4-3 defensive scheme in Detroit. (Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports) Detroit Lions Another team in need of a defensive overhaul, the Lions are an intriguing option since they play in a 4-3 base scheme. Detroit could use an upgrade over Christian Jones on the outside and Lee could fit right in as a speedy linebacker. Lee hasn’t played in the 4-3 since his time at Ohio State, but a position change could be just what Lee needs after three marginally unproductive seasons in New York. The Bengals need a replacement for Vontaze Burfict, and Lee would be the perfect fit. (David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports) Cincinnati Bengals The Bengals need someone to fill the void left by the released Vontaze Burfict, and Lee would be a great replacement in the middle of their defense. The two are extremely similar in size, though Burfict packs much more of a punch than Lee. Cincinnati also plays in the 4-3, but even if it switched schemes, Lee would fit in and contribute, either as a starter or a role player. At the very least, he would battle Jordan Evans for the starting role. With a new coaching regime, the Bengals could use an infusion of different talent and Lee would give them a young, versatile and speedy option in the middle. https://www.google.com/amp/s/jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/03/19/potential-trade-destinations-jets-darron-lee/amp/

    Blake Bortles to be Rams backup QB

    This Bortles guy is a stud. He threw for almost 400 yards against Todd Bowles/kacy Rogers D last year.
  4. Those must be some strong ass prescription glasses brother if you mistake Ray Lucas for Neil O’Donnell without them 😀
  5. One of my favorite Kris Jenkins highlights. He was such a beast when healthy.

    OL Tom Compton signs with Jets

    Hopefully he doesn’t wake up with a stomach ache.
  7. Someone in the scouting dept needs to change their position to DT and then we have a shot at Macc noticing them

  9. The Jets haven’t said much about their new duds for the 2019 season, but a lot of drastic changes are expected. Fans have been eagerly anticipating the new uniforms since they were announced last season. The team, meanwhile, has released a few promotional teasers, but nothing revealing. According to The Athletic’s Connor Hughes, though, the new uniforms will be a complete redesign: New York hasn’t done an overhaul of its uniforms since 1998. They Jets have worn roughly the same hunter green jerseys with the same logo for 20 years now. Meanwhile, they’ve had the green and white pants since 2002. With a new coaching staff in, a young quarterback on the rise and several splashy offseason acquisitions on the way, the Jets are hoping to change the look of a team that has found very little success in its current threads. The Jets will reveal the new uniforms on April 4. https://www.google.com/amp/s/jetswire.usatoday.com/2019/03/16/report-jets-are-completely-redesigning-their-uniforms/amp/ edit: didn’t see it was already posted sorry

    Jets Sign Kicker Chandler Catanzaro The Jets have signed a familiar face — and foot — in kicker Chandler Catanzaro, who spent last year with the Buccaneers and Panthers after playing with the Jets in 2017. Catanzaro converted 83.3% of his kicks with the Green & White, one of which was a franchise-long 57 yards at Cleveland, and made 100% of his extra points. The sixth-year veteran has a strong leg as his 45 touchbacks and 66.2% touchback rate were the most for a Jets kicker since 1991 at the time. The 6’3”, 200-pounder signed a multi-year deal with the Bucs last offseason but was let go in November after converting 73.3% of his field goals (11-for-15) and 85.2% of his extra points (23-for-27). Catanzaro was picked up a month later and finished the season strong as he connected on all of his field goals and extra points in four games with the Panthers.
  11. The 5 Toughest Linemen I’ve Ever Faced by Gerald McCoy https://www.theplayerstribune.com/en-us/articles/gerald-mccoy-buccaneers-5-toughest-linemen-nfl Kelechi Osemele Kelechi was also with Baltimore when we played them in 2014, but he was injured so he didn’t play. I remember I got to talk to him after the game, and he said he wished he would’ve gotten the chance to play against me. I respected that because I don’t shy away from competition. I wanna go against the very best every week. So ever since then, knowing that he had that same mentality, I’ve kind of wanted to go against him to see what he was all about. Then, last year, we played the Raiders, and … you wanna talk about nasty? Kelechi was flat-out mean. Not dirty, just nasty. He’s just the kind of dude who will slam you every chance he gets. They call him KO for a reason. The best thing you can do against Kelechi is to get him moving his feet. Because if you don’t, and you let him get leverage on you … man, he’s gonna punish you. I mean, he’s 6′ 5″, maybe 6′ 6″, and like 330 pounds. He’s a space eater. But he’s also athletic. He’s super strong and he has huge hands. Seriously … you don’t wanna lock up with him. But if you do, you better hope your hands are inside. Because if he gets his hands inside, it’s gonna be a long day for you. See, what he does is, when he gets his hands inside, he waits for you to try and shed the block — to spin or twist off him — and then he uses your weight against you to put you on the ground. That’s his counter. He won’t grab you and swing you, like a hip toss, which would be a penalty. He just uses your momentum against you and straight slams you — just runs you into the ground. That’s legal, and he’s perfected it. And if you try to get up, he’s gonna put you back down. He’s all about being violent. I had a lot of fun playing against him last year, and I think he’s gonna be good in this league for a really long time.

    What's the difference?

    Getting rid of Todd Bowles wins us 4 more games at least

    Sorry brother. She’s into Asians. Yellow fever works both ways.
