  1. http://rotoworld.com/player/nfl/10423/devin-smith Jets waived WR Devin Smith. Jul 16 - 1:25 PM Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter
  2. Good point. Can't argue against it
  3. Fair point. I think the Jets also bought themselves an insurance policy prior to the draft not knowing how things would shake out. Having Darnold fall to them and his progression thus far may very well have changed the value the organization now places on Bridgewater. The part that I'm not sure is being considered here (regarding the Jets trading Bridgewater towards the end of camp) is: the later the Jets trade Bridgewater (the longer they hold on to him). the LESS valuable he may become to other teams. The reason being - QBs are not plug and play in a new system. Not like a RB or a DE who can pretty much come in and play right away when traded. Jimmy G sat for a few weeks in SF before starting. Fans say we can trade Bridgewater late in camp to TB because of Winston suspension. Well, by the time Teddy is up to speed on their playbook, Winston will be back. Trade Bridgewater mid-season and he may only be ready contribute for a few games on the new team at the very end. Add to that, he's a FA in 2019 again. Why would a team give up much for a QB who will take 2-4 games to gt up to speed who will be a FA at the en of the year.
  4. Now that you say that, the fact that he didn't actually sign until the 8th sounds right. Even so - I have to imagine that when he looked at the Jets QB situation at the time (McCown, Petty & Hack, rookie QB TBD) he may very well believed that this situation might be the best for him to start.....and earn another $9 million (which I think it's safe to say he may not have been offered from other teams). Makes me wonder if Mike Macc & Bowles hinted that we wouldn't start a rookie QB at the beginning of the year regardless, and it would come down to him vs McCown for the opening day start. What happens beyond that would be up to how he played (if he won the starting job in camp). https://overthecap.com/player/teddy-bridgewater/2971/ I equate it to taking a job with a lower base salary because it has a higher bonus/commission potential and you believe what is required to earn that is easily obtainable
  5. (Not to self: do not draft any Seahawks' offensive players in Fantasy Football this year)
  6. I'm not sure that was the only reason he signed here. He probably felt that he might have a chance to start for us this season. Remember, when he was signed, we were still sitting at the #6 draft slot with no guarantee of getting 1 of the 3 QBs we supposedly were interested in. The Jets re-signed McCown and still had Petty & Hack. Teddy may have been told that Petty & Hack were going to be goners, and if we weren't able to draft 1 of the big 3 QBs, he'd have a legit chance to start and earn the extra $ when/if he made the opening day roster ($10 million?)
  7. I anticipate that the heart attack will kill me if they win. At minimum, a trip to the CCU at the hospital. If they are good, I might make it.
  8. Based on this article, it seems like the FO decided before that (2017) draft that they would be all in for the QBs iin 2018 instead. https://www.si.com/nfl/2018/05/16/new-york-jets-sam-darnold-2018-draft

    Jets minicamp day 2

    Whether he is or isn't the Day 1 starter doesn't really matter to me. The fact that he is a Jet and will be our QB at some point does....and it makes me VERY happy.

    There's a theme to that poster's comments on Teddy. I think you'll see the pattern....😉

    Jets minicamp - Day 1

    No, I think the franchise tag would be prohibitive unless, by some miracle, he started all year and took us to the playoffs. Assuming neither of those things happen, I would start by offering Teddy the same $ McCown got this year: $10 million per. Years/guarantees/signing bonus TBD based on 2108 performance

    Jets minicamp - Day 1

    I'm with you on wanting to keep both Darnold and Bridge for 2018 and beyond (hoping this is McCown's last year). I just can't think of any justification for giving up on Darnold that soon
