  1. Jets' Joe Flacco says he won't be ready for opener after surgery 6:20 PM ET Rich CiminiESPN Staff Writer New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco, who agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million contract Friday, confirmed speculation he won't be ready for the Sept. 13 season opener against the Buffalo Bills because of his recently repaired neck. "I can't speak to exactly when I'm going to be ready, but it will not be day one," Flacco said Tuesday in an interview with SiriusXM NFL radio. "Obviously, we'll get with the doctors and I have another checkup come August, so we'll see where that goes." Flacco, 35, who underwent surgery in early April for a herniated disk, could be cleared for contact in early to mid-September, sources said last week. He said he feels "normal right now" -- he's throwing and working out -- but he probably will be limited to light work in training camp. The Jets were aware of Flacco's timetable when they finalized the deal. They're confident he will be healthy enough to serve as Sam Darnold's backup for much of the season. The football calendar is up in the air because of the coronavirus pandemic. "First and foremost, I want to help the team in any way possible and also be a guy Sam can lean on, that he can learn from," Flacco said in his first interview since being released by the Denver Broncos after only one season. "I would say those are the two most important things: Help out the guys on the team and help out Sam to do all they can. "For me, personally, I want to play football. I've had some things happen, got injured and had to have surgery. I have to find my way back into the league. I want to play for years to come. I think these guys have given me a great opportunity and hope I can make the most of my situation and make the most of whatever my role ends up being." The former longtime Baltimore Ravens starter and Super Bowl MVP admitted he wavered on whether to continue playing. He said he was "changing my mind every other day" earlier in the offseason. "My mind was just all over the place, even a couple of months into the offseason," he said. "I was just kind of going crazy about the whole thing. The fact that I finally got [the surgery] done and put all that behind me, I can move forward now and look forward to football." Flacco, acknowledging he knows "nothing at this point" about coach Adam Gase's offensive system, is participating in the virtual offseason program. He said he wouldn't hesitate to participate in a minicamp amid coronavirus concerns. "It's tough to talk about this and not get political, but I want to get back to work," he said. "I think everybody wants to get back to work. It would be very easy for me and a bunch of the guys that play to sit here and say, 'Ah, we can quarantine until this and this and this.' "... I could quarantine forever -- I've been lucky, I've been fortunate -- but I want to get back to work. I think we all do, man. We need this. We need to get back to work and get things going."
  2. Too many mental orgasms going on here. How could you question the rationale of bringing in a 3 times pro-bowler (last 3 seasons by the way) arguing about his athleticism or that last year he was not good in pass protection? ... the guy was ranked the 14th Guard in the NFL last year and the alternative is to keep Winters (38th) at a higher cost... this is an immediate upgrade and the only reason you don’t do it is because the guy does not want to play for the Jets or there are questions about his attitude or health (which I did not read about).
  3. Great interview to the UDFA Lawrence Cager. Seems like the Jets did a good job in recruiting him. Love his attitude and maturity. Just hope he can stay healthy...
  4. In nfl.com he is listed at 6’3 and 255 https://www.nfl.com/prospects/bryce-huff?id=32194855-4609-0844-68b1-6617441eaa57 He is also graded high, especially compared to other EDGE rushers that were drafted, he could definitively be the steal of the draft https://www.nfl.com/draft/tracker/prospects/EDGE?college=allColleges&page=1&status=ALL&year=2020
  5. Good listen, starts around 30:25... this kid is a stud and was Gregg doing his recruiting, again... Former @MemphisFB linebacker and the newest member of the @nyjets, @Bryce55H joins the show. In this episode, Bryce discusses his decision to sign with the Jets and much more. Episode 5 is now available on Apple, Spotify, and our website. https://linktr.ee/losfreyspodcast
  6. BY: Joe Marino - The Draft Network Grading draft classes in the immediate days following the event is an unfair exercise. Every team loves what they were able to accomplish and there's optimism in all 32 franchises. It will take a few years before grading even makes sense given the unknowns of how prospects will pan out. But if you’ve spent the last year evaluating the players, grading drafts relative to the way you perceived prospects is completely fair. Jets general manager Joe Douglas put together in his first draft with the team, and when examining the 2020 classes, I'm left blown away by what he was able to accomplish relative to my personal draft board. Below are each of the New York’s 2020 picks and where I had them ranked on my board, the individual rankings relative to my board are noted in parentheses: No. 11: Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville (16th overall) No. 59: Denzel Mims, WR, Baylor (32nd) No. 68: Ashtyn Davis, S, Cal (42nd) No. 79: Jabari Zuniga, EDGE, Florida (97th) No. 120: La’Mical Perine, RB, Florida (125th) No. 125: James Morgan, QB, FIU (135th) No. 129: Cameron Clark, OL, Charlotte (142nd) No. 158: Bryce Hall, CB, Virginia (58th) No. 191: Braden Mann, P, Texas A&M (P1) Douglas and I are on the same page when it comes to the valuation of the players he selected in Mims, Davis and Hall. With needs along the offensive line, wide receiver, cornerback, edge rusher and overall depth, Douglas was wise to prioritize the offensive line first and draft Becton with his top pick. The depth of the class at other positions aligned nicely with the Jets’ needs; so, landing one of the premium talents at offensive tackle was the correct way to go with pick No. 11. Becton is a rare blend of size, mobility and power with the upside to dominate. His ability to open rushing lanes and skill set in pass protection makes him New York’s most important offensive catalysts for quarterback Sam Darnold and running back Le’Veon Bell performing well. The Jets landed Mims at No. 59. He was the 13th wide receiver to come off the board. Mims is the most gifted receiver in the class from a physical traits standpoint and hauled in 182 receptions for 2,901 yards and 28 touchdowns across his last three seasons at Baylor. He has the size, speed, agility, ball skills and physicality to win at every level of the field. Mims' ability to win on the outside should improve the Jets’ offensive spacing in the passing game and open up opportunities for Jamison Crowder and Breshad Perriman to play in their optimal roles. Mims is an elite blocker and that will help New York create more offense as a unit. The Jets have a top safety tandem in Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, but that doesn’t mean the Davis selection was ill-advised. Maye and Adams are versatile defenders and the arrival of Davis enables that to be accentuated. He is a true centerfielder that thrives in deep zones and has exceptional ball skills. Playing Davis over top of Maye and Adams opens up a world of possibilities for defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who typically likes to keep a safety deep off the ball. Davis is tailor-made for that role and it’s important to keep in mind that both Maye and Adams are playing under expiring contracts. New York was in need of more depth and upside at edge rusher and that’s exactly what it received with Zuniga. While he’s a bit raw, Zuniga offers an intriguing blend of burst, power and urgency. His senior season didn’t go as planned due to an ankle injury but he has the type of makeup that is perfect for the Jets’ defensive scheme, serving as an attack-style rusher from multiple alignments. The Jets' options behind Bell were underwhelming entering the draft but the selection of Perine changes that. He is a do-it-all back that can run inside or outside, catch the football and pass protect. Perine led Florida in rushing in each of the last three seasons and is the perfect backup to Bell. Morgan was my favorite Day 3 quarterback and has some exciting physical tools. With David Fales set to backup Darnold, investing in competition for him was a smart move by Douglas at No. 125. There’s a good chance that when reflecting back on the Jets’ class in four years, the player who is the biggest steal is Clark. He was a college left tackle and has a bright future at left guard. Clark is a nasty run blocker that dominated Clemson’s defensive linemen when Charlotte faced the Tigers in 2019. He has heavy hands, a powerful core, strong legs and a desire to put his opponents on the ground. Clark's technique has to improve in pass protection but the pairing of him and Becton on the left side of the offensive line is exciting to consider as the two develop. Hall deserved to be a much higher pick but an ankle injury shortened his senior season and destroyed his draft stock. Hall was a First Team All-ACC selection as a junior in 2018 and led the nation with 21 passes defended. After high school wide receiver, Hall blossomed into a top tier corner who delivers an exciting package of size, physicality, athleticism and elite ball skills. Mann was a terrific selection for someone who greatly values the punting game and how much flipping field position and pinning teams deep matters. He was a consistent college punter that controlled the ball well with plenty of distance on his punts, often out-kicking his coverage because his leg is so strong. Mann can handle kickoff duties and logged 10 solo tackles over the last two years. Talking specialist isn’t appealing for many, but he makes the Jets a better football team. With Tom Brady no longer in the AFC East, parity within the division for the first time in 20 years. The Jets’ 2020 draft class positions them well from a talent standpoint on how needs were addressed to compete
  7. You need to post the whole story... it is true that he did not have a stellar 1st year but the guy was a rookie and he did not have consistent reps to fairly assess his potential ... But it’s only fair to note that Dillard’s worst three games came when 1) he had to fill in on short notice for an injured Peters against the Minnesota Vikings, 2) he made his first NFL start on the road against the Dallas Cowboys, and 3) he started at right tackle against the Seattle Seahawks. Dillard graded out more favorably in his second and third starts at left tackle. Dillard also finished the 2019 preseason as PFF’s fourth highest graded tackle, for whatever that’s worth
  8. The team would take a $26.106 million salary cap hit if it were to cut him before June 1. A trade before June 1 would knock $10 million off the cap hit... but the number is still significant.
  9. It seems the source is legit. At first sounded crazy but probably is the only way for the Eagles to get rid of Jeffrey who is becoming a problem for them
  10. I would be all over this trade... pick #68 and a combined $18m in cap hit! Play Like A Jet @Playlikeajet1 Wow @Tim_McManus just now on the Mike Missanelli show said he's heard whispers that the Eagles could be looking to use Andre Dillard as a means of dumping Alshon Jeffrey's contract. Thinks the fact Eagles seem very interested in bringing back Jason Peters tells you a lot. 4:20 PM · Mar 2, 2020
  11. As the NFL Scouting Combine wraps up, it’s time to start turning our focus to free agency. As is the case every year, this was a major topic in Indianapolis and there have been plenty of reports in regard to offensive tackle Jack Conklin and the fact that he may sign with the New York Jets. Adding fuel to the fire, sources tell PFN Insider Tony Pauline that no other franchise interested in Conklin is willing to pay him the same money the Jets are ready to offer. As one source told him, “The Jets are the only team willing to give Conklin the money he wants.” This further confirms Pauline’s reports regarding the interest between Conklin and the Jets, which he first reported on February 27. The timeline of these reports that were posted in our Combine News and Rumors Tracker (and below) illustrates not only the NY Jets desire to land Conklin but contingency players if the team does not sign their top choice https://www.profootballnetwork.com/jack-conklin-new-york-jets-free-agency/ Crazy... and we are 18 days away from FA!
  12. Posted by Mike Florio on March 1, 2020, 11:39 AM EST Getty Images A year ago, the Titans opted not to exercise their fifth-year option on tackle Jack Conklin‘s rookie contract. As a result, he may be headed for a franchise that entered the AFL as the Titans. Per a league source, one NFL team has been informed that Conklin plans to sign with the Jets when free agency opens on March 18. The report is just that, and nothing more. It doesn’t mean that the Jets and Conklin’s representation have struck a wink-nod deal. It doesn’t mean that they’ve even talked, although tampering is rampant in Indianapolis at the Scouting Combine. All it means is that one NFL team has been informed that Conklin plans to sign with the Jets. Within the next 18 days, we’ll find out whether that happens. Or, actually, within the next 16. The legal tampering period allows agreements in principle to be reached, and last year dozens of deals were leaked to the media not long after the window opened for officially negotiating them. Selected in round one from Michigan State in 2016, Conklin has started all 16 games in three of his four seasons in Tennessee.
