  1. Just reading what the article said buddy - and it said a non-disclosed injury. As it turns out Mayfield was in the concussion protocol twice in 2015 a few weeks apart. That was 3 years ago.....non-factor.
  2. The Jets sign Kevin Minter, ILB

    Jets signed ILB Kevin Minter and WR Charles Johnson. Minter should have a chance to compete for early-down snaps at inside linebacker for the Jets. He is a non-factor on passing downs. Johnson was out of the NFL last year. He will slide onto the end of a deep Jets wideout depth chart. http://www.rotoworld.com/sports/nfl/football
  3. I haven't seen his documented anywhere. All accounts that I have read say Mayfield has no significant injury history.
  4. I really believe this is the case. The only way I believe this wouldn't happen is if someone trades with the Giants and takes Mayfield at # 2 - or if the Giants themselves take him at 2. Short of that I think Mayfield will be a Jet with the 3rd overall pick - and I'm good with it.
  5. And the way that I interpret it, that's pretty much the point of the article. I'm kind of surprised that Cimini, of all people, wrote it. He's usually bashing Mac & the front office every chance he gets, which he has pretty much built a professional career doing while covering the Jets. On a side note, I like the vibe that Christopher Johnson has brought to the team since taking the reigns from Woody. He seems like a better fit, with more polished interpersonal skills and appears to have the ability to better relate with the players, from what I have read & heard so far. This could be a sign of good things to come if Christopher stays in that role long term & Woody stays occupied with his new political career.
  6. You lost at the assumption that labeling you as a "typical Jets Fan" meant that you were not a "real Jets Fan". Typical Jets fans are real Jets fans, they just happen to be very negative & cynical in nature. Once again, stop assuming, READ and take things at face value. Your lack of an intelligible response tells me that you know your initial statement was wrong, as I pointed out - which is really all you had to say.
  7. If you're going to play the role of the typical Jets fan I'd suggest 2 things: First off - read: I've already stated that the article is basically giving him a pass for his first 2 years on the job - which I stated I didn't necessarily agree with. Secondly, get your facts straight: Mac took over as Jets GM in January of 2015 so your first 3 years of this regime being a Mulligan remark is not accurate - the article is based on the rebuild starting in 2017. So, he's basically getting a Mulligan for his first 2 years on the job - that's not saying that I agree with it, as I previously stated - but as a rookie GM, I can understand why some people might give him a mulligan for his first 2 years, of basically learning the ins & outs of the job. The main theme of the article (although there are some other implications as well) is that Mac had a ton of cap room to play with this off-season and he is managing it properly, being fiscally responsible and not shooting his wad in one off-season.
  8. I know where you are coming from but Mac is basically getting a free pass for 2015 & 2016 - which I don't necessarily agree with; This article is based on looking at the rebuild as having started in 2017.
  9. A pretty good one to if you click on the link to "read the story"........
  10. Year 2 of a 3 year rebuilding plan and things are starting to come into focus; the future is looking bright Jets fans.... Jets' rebuilding plan comes into focus, with $100M in 2019 cap room The only big contract extension on the horizon for the Jets belongs to Leonard Williams. Ed Mulholland/Getty Images 7:00 AM ET Rich CiminiESPN Staff Writer Longtime Jets beat writer for New York Daily News Syracuse University graduate Here's a look at what's happening around the New York Jets: 1. Plenty of green: The first wave of free agency is over, and here are the spending numbers for the Jets: They doled out $187 million in contracts, including $81 million guaranteed at signing. These totals include their players who re-signed, namely quarterback Josh McCown and cornerback Morris Claiborne. It sounds like a lot of money -- and it is -- but they avoided the three dirtiest words in sports: They didn't mortgage their future. The front office, led by general manager Mike Maccagnan, did a nice job of maintaining financial flexibility in 2019. Of the 18 players who signed contracts in the past three weeks, only two received deals that include guaranteed money in 2019: cornerback Trumaine Johnson ($8 million) and linebacker Avery Williamson ($6 million). As a result, the Jets' nest egg is big enough to hatch a T-Rex. Right now, their projection for 2019 is a league-high $109 million in salary-cap space, according to overthecap.com. The only big contract extension on the horizon belongs to Leonard Williams, who is signed through 2019 (including his fifth-year option). "It's a nice problem to have," CEO Christopher Johnson said at last week's NFL meetings. The Jets were willing to spend a big chunk of it (see: Kirk Cousins), but the free-agent quarterback said no to their offer of $90 million guaranteed. In the long run, they will be better off without Cousins -- assuming they pick the right quarterback in the upcoming draft. The Jets' rebuilding plan is starting to crystallize, and it looks like they're in the middle of a three-year project that started last year. Year 1: Rip it apart and start over. Year 2: Get the quarterback. Year 3: Hit the ground running, with the quarterback surrounded by a team that should be bolstered by three drafts and two years of big spending in free agency. The Jets still need "parts and pieces," Maccagnan said, but they have more parts and pieces than they did a year ago at this time. By 2019, they should be locked and loaded, ready to contend. No excuses. http://www.prosportsdaily.com/Headlines/ExternalArticle?articleId=507096
  11. Jets hosted Travis Swanson today

    I gotcha - but for the record, I'd be inclined to disagree with you.
