    At that price, it should be noted that JD valued Perriman higher than JJSS.

     

    boy, that is a dumb take.

    you do realize there was this whole pandemic wreaking havoc on the country as a whole and the league played an entire year without fans, leading to a shrinking of the cap in the interim.

    comparing contract offers pre-covid and now is just plain stupid

    lol.  mediocre joe strikes again!

     

    what does this even mean?

    he took less than offered by the chiefs and ravens.  you think joe should have just overwhelmed him with a godfather offer?

  3. surprised he took less than from a couple of contenders.  i can see taking less than from a team like the jets or benglas, but less than offered by KC or balt?

    of course, that won't stop jets fans from complaining we are paying cole $5MM when we could have had juju for just a few more dollars

    you weren't a member of the board then, so we don't know your reactions.  i'm sure you loved it too.  as far as i remember, everyone was pumped for the johnson and mosely signings.  mosely was a beast that one half he played hah.  

    i'd rather take a shot on a big name with big talent (juju, golladay, ANY CB other than joyner) then i would signing guys that might not even make the week 1 roster and claiming they're supplemental to your just OK drafts.

     

    hated the bell signing.  thought they overpaid johnson, but didn't expect it to be a complete disaster.  liked the mosley signing.

    golladay has a bad hip.  there's a reason he's still sitting on the sidelines.  if he were a true stud #1 WR with no injury concerns, he would have been "signed" at 12:03pm on monday.

    and juju is a big name.  unfortunately his production doesn't really match, at least since AB left town.  he was the 3rd best WR on his team last year and averaged under 9 yards per catch and had an even worse 2019.  i'd be fine with the jets adding him, but if i had to chose only 1, i would take davis.

    cole and joyner are solid additions on 1-year deals.  the ST guy from NO is a premier STer in the league.  don't know much about the LB they signed, but he has talent (former 1st rounder) and it's a 1-year deal to see if coaches can get the talent out of him.  feeney is nothing to write home about, although i recall him being very well regarded coming into the draft.  he's a depth piece for the line - better guard than center (his awful grades are as a center).

    i would like the see the CB, IOL, TE and RBs spots addressed.  i'm sure they will do that in the draft or the remainder of the off-season.  but i'm not gonna be upset they didn't sign "big name" 31 y.o. kyle randolph to a stupid contract.

    Corey Davis is a receiver who was 10th on the list of available receivers in 2021 free agency. He benefitted from the 1# run game in the NFL, with stacked boxes and still hasn’t cracked a 1000 yards He’s 26 and the Titans let him walk.

    wow, that is an awful list.

    are you saying you'd rather the jets sign a has been over 30 WR like antonio brown, ty hilton or marvin jones over a coming into his prime corey davis (who actually out-performed all 3 of those guys last year)?  i guess you like the name player - who cares if the now aren't very good.

    robinson and godwin never hit the market.  i will give golladay as the top WR on the market - at least if his hip checks out - a big IF.  after that, davis is right up there with juju, fuller and samuel.  fuller can't stay on the field (and is already suspended game 1).  juju averaged under 9 yards a reception.  davis has outperformed samuel through their respective first 4 years in the league.  so one can easily argue davis was the best FA to hit the market after the injured golladay.

     

    10th???  that's an awful take

    Juju should be priority #1

    24 y/o receiver who has proven he can put up elite production

    no brainer 

     

    he put up elite production playing with a HOF QB and across from the best WR in the game at the time

    last year, he put up very mediocre production

  7. i remember feeney when he came out in the draft.  the board i used to post on was really high on him.  can't say i've followed his career.  seems better than what they have, especially on the bench (granted, not saying much).  fine for depth purposes and probably even an upgrade if he starts.  position versatility is always good.  the line is better than it was yesterday, but not exactly a strength on the team

    Do you think it’s the players we have or the offense we’ve been running?

     

    the offense no doubt stunk.  can't say for sure about the players, but we are talking perine who didn't really show much last year and two other guys who've bounced around the league for a few years.

    not sure why we wouldn't look to bring in a more proven player.  it's not like RBs are getting huge contracts in this market

    Our RBs will benefit from the outside zone-blocking scheme, and between them and a potential draft pick we should be fine at the position. 

     

    seriously?  the jets probably have the worst RB room in the league right now.  3 guys with barely 1,400 yards combined in their career (64 games played)

    lindsay has two 1,000 year seasons under his belt

    amazing that people think the jets RBs are "fine" right now

    I don’t get the infatuation with this guy. 

    have you looked at the jets RB depth chart recently?

    and signing him for what assumedly will be a relatively cheap contract doesn't preclude the jets from drafting a RB

    lol bust is a bit strong for FF purposes - he finished as WR16 - basically what he is in real life.  a WR2 on teams. Davis, Juju and Mims is a pretty legit WR group.

    i play in an auction league, so i wasted more money than he was worth.  he finished with ok numbers, but was so hit or miss, it was hard to trust him.  too many games of 50 or less yards and no TDs. i had more reliable WRs so he became a bench player and i wound up trading him for depth elsewhere.

     

    edit - also not in a PPR league, so volume receptions are meaningless to me

    I didn't even say we shouldn't sign him, but I don't need to lie about his game. If he's on the field for 3rd downs, you're going to see a lot of blown up pockets at the expense of some of those catches.

     

    that's fair.  

    it is possible that someone can (i) not be a great blocker and (ii) still be able to contribute as a receiver out of the backfield.

    Just because someone is available, that means I can't critique his game honestly? He's most likely not going to be in on passing downs because of his blocking.

     

    well the jets need RBs.  he seems to be the best one available right now.  and while he's not a premier pass catcher, he can contribute in the passing game as witnessed by his 35/38 catches in 2018/19.  still would look to draft one, but if they sign him, he immediately becomes the best RB on the team (not saying much)

  14. 2 minutes ago, Tranquilo said:

    What does that have to do with his contribution to the pass game? We are talking about Phillip Lindsay, not who is available. 

     

    lindsay is available.  the broncos rescinded the RFA tag.

    and while catching 35 passes isn't mccaffery/kamara level, it is not a nothing.  it would be 3rd on the jets last year, 4th in 2019, and 5th in 2018.  while i recognize this points to the absolutely awful passing production for the jets, it is not a nothing 

  15. 2 minutes ago, Tranquilo said:

    35 is not too much for a RB nowadays. Most RBs get their pass looks on 3rd down, and he won't be on the field on 3rd down because he can't block.

     

    he's not a league leader, but it's different than saying he's not much of a pass catcher.  in 2019 he was 28th in RB receptions in in 2018 he was 24th.  meaning he can add some value in the passing game
