  1. Yea I know not everyone qualifies, but both of them should be around 5 mil. Is that enough to qualify? I have no idea. I don’t think starters vs non starters matter. The contracts are all backloaded also which I’m not sure if it matters if they are being paid very little this year. 
    it’s all so confusing ha 
    There something in the process that basically means they have to be among the top 35% highest paid players at their position.

    Overall, there are only 32 comp picks available every year, and only the "most worthy" teams get them. So even if you lose more than you gain, you may still get nothing if what you lose are a bunch of JAGs.

    I don’t think this is true. We signed 6. Lost 5 I think. Crowder, maye, Davis, fatukasi, Moses. 

    LDT and Cole still aren’t signed. If they both do that’s -1. 

    im not sure how it works out contract wise, but it might end with a comp pick. Not 100% sure, but it’s possible 

    There's a complex formula used to work it out, and not every player qualifies. Guys like LDT, Cole etc, who'll likely sign on small contracts and not see a ton of playing time, will barely register. But our signings are going to be starters, and there's some sizeable money involved. So I still reckon there's zero chance this time around.

    That horn really isn't very aerodynamic.

    It'll certainly lead to lots of penalty flags too.

    "Illegal use of the horn, defense. 15 yard penalty, autoamtic ... first down!" :D

    I was looking at this recently, I had a lot of time on my hands and went through drafts from 2011-2021, and so many first round receivers were busts.

    Obviously, lots were also very good. But you can develop a receiver, it’s just a case of, can we?

    2020 top 5 receiving yards

    Diggs - Round 5 (146)

    Hopkins - Round 1 (27)

    Jefferson - Round 1 (22)

    Adams - Round 2 (53)

    2021 Top 5 Receiving yards

    Kupp - Round 3 (69)

    Jefferson - Round 1

    Adams - Round 2

    Chase - Round 1

    Samuel -  Round 2 (36)


    Being a stud like Chase obviously helps, but there are lots of good picks with great potential, if we do everything right.

    Good stuff to know - I realise it's a small sample size, but notionally 80% of these were Rd 1 / Rd 2 picks (and the guys who appear twice - i.e. who did it consistently - were all Rd 1 / Rd 2).

    Higher round pick = higher chance of being very good. Exceptions can occur. Doesn't alter the draft strategy despite the original premise.

    The Jets did not beat Cincinnati.  Cincinnati beat themselves.

    In that case ... no one beat us last year because we beat ourselves. 

    Improvement is therefore 100% in our grasp! :D

    Seems kind of strange place to complain about Mccagnan when he drafted 4 players that are earning $18M APY.  Those players and a 2022 4th net the Jets a 2020 3rd, 2021 1st, 3rd, 5th, 6th, 2022 1st, 2nd and 4th, and Bradley McDougald.   Damn that Mike Mccagnan.  No assets at all!

    Earning ... or being paid? ;-)

    9 draft picks and we have the most players on the team in the league. There’s also a deadline for signings that count for the comp pick formula. Maybe in a few weeks? Not sure the date 

    From what I can find it's 4pm ET on the Monday following the draft.


    [A] Compensatory Free Agent (“CFA”) shall be defined as an Unrestricted Free Agent (“UFA”) who: (i) signed with a new Club during the prior free agency signing period […] prior to 4:00 p.m., New York time, on the Monday following the NFL Draft for that League Year1 […]; and (ii) ranked within the top 35% of all League players […]. Clubs that lose to other Clubs a greater number of CFAs than they sign or acquire from other Clubs shall be eligible to receive a Compensatory Draft Selection in the College Draft to be held in the following League Year subject to the provisions set forth below.

    Didn't realise the bit about falling in the top 35% of all League players - not even sure what that is assessed on?

    Thats what you get when premium resources are used on you and you dont contribute. Worse, when the guy taken after you is stellar, and you miss half your games. 

    Question - if you got drafted #11 overall to play left tackle in the NFL, would you contribute?

    A player cannot determine where he is drafted. Nor can he suddenly become better / good enough to "justify" his draft spot. It's like paying $100k on an old wreck of a car then blaming the car for not being reliable or fast enough.

    There's a rumor that some 38 year old woman who lives in my neighborhood is banging 3 different Colts players, all under 25....but that's all the rumors I know at this point.

    At the same time, or individually? :D  

  10. If one of the top OTs are there at 4 we should sell it that we will take him. But try to work the phones with teams a few slots below us to maybe get another high pick and still be able to use the traded down pick on day Sauce then a WR at 10.
    If he falls to 4 then he's a prime trade up candidate for another team. He won't get past NYG at 5, so if someone wants him it's trade with us or miss out.

    Lots of teams need OL help.

    That used to be AFC East for the longest time. Pats loaded with goat QB, and Jets, Bills n Dolphins loaded with high draft picks. 

    Look at the NFC South now ... Tampa with Brady, and Carolina, Atlanta and NO looking at high draft picks and pretty much no QBs of their own. 

  12. Move to the NFC ... still have to play AFC in Superbowl. ;-) 

    Iron sharpens iron - you only become the best by playing against the best. Hoping for a weak schedule is ... weak.

    It won't be long until things start to change naturally too. Look at the winners / losers article about the Adams trade, how KC are already starting to hit the cap to keep all their current talent, can't add much more, and have Tyreek Hill needing a new contract.

    + The #4 pick and another pick. Even then , he probably absolutely would have opted for Raiders any day and twice on Sundays.

    Fixed that up a bit for you. No way he was going anywhere else. Has already said he's buying a house next door to his BFF Carr.
