  1. Right now if you’re a New York Jets fan, there’s plenty of reason to expect a better product as the 2020 season approaches due largely to having a re-built offensive line. The Jets have a new left tackle in Mekhi Becton, a new center in Connor McGovern and lots of competition at right guard (Brian Winters, Greg Van Roten, Cameron Clark) and right tackle (Chuma Edoga, George Fant, Clark). There are plenty of options but also several questions for those who should be battling it out on the right side of the line, but there’s one in particular that stands out above the others. Is George Fant a legitimate starting offensive lineman or will he end up being an overpriced backup? Fant comes with a fairly hefty $7.2 million cap hit which may not sound like much for a starting tackle, but a starting tackle is something Fant hasn’t been for a couple of years, when he last did it regularly he was among the worst in the NFL according to Pro Football Focus. In 2016, Fant played a career high 664 snaps, earning an overall grade of 47.2 from PFF, placing him 60th out of 62 tackles who played at least 650 snaps that year. On our own film review of Fant from a couple of seasons ago, the 2016 version was often caught off-balance and looked out of place. Since that time, Fant has been a part time starter who rarely plays all of his team’s snaps. A quick glance at his stat line shows that Fant started 7 games in 2019 for the Seahawks. In all reality, several of those were the result of being on the field as an extra blocker on the team’s first offensive play. Of those 7 starts, Fant played every snap just 3 times in 2019 and only once in 2018 despite also being listed as having started seven games. Fant in the run game. Think Le'Veon Bell would welcome this? pic.twitter.com/KizyhLw55x — Glenn Naughton (@AceFan23) May 13, 2020 If there’s one positive to take from Fant’s 2019 it would undoubtedly be his week 17 performance against the San Francisco 49ers when he neutralized one of the best pass rushers in the NFL in Nick Bosa. This was one of the few weeks that saw Fant play every snap and he held up well enough that you have to wonder if it was that single contest that earned him a big pay day. Have to wonder how much this one game led to George Fant getting paid. Started at LT for Seattle against SF and neutralized Nick Bosa and others. Very strong showing. pic.twitter.com/sH1hu3XMGz — Glenn Naughton (@AceFan23) May 13, 2020 On the downside, Fant struggled the following week in the playoffs in a win against the Philadelphia Eagles before playing just seven snaps the following week against the Packers. His off-the-charts agility and salary probably make him a lock to start, but should Fant have a difficult time winning and keeping a starting job for the Jets in 2020, they’ll be looking at carrying a backup player with a starter’s salary. Here’s to hoping the Jets get something closer to the Fant that showed up versus Bosa in place of the one that was benched two weeks later.

  2. Covid-19 has impacted so many people, our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who have lost a loved one due to this pandemic. This week GreenBean looks at how the NFL is being impacted by Covid-19. What happens if a player tests positive for the virus? Will fans feel comfortable going to game in person? Will that even be an option? Masks required? The new normal could be very different. Check out the short video and let us know what you think in our forums.

  3. On this week’s episode of JetNation Radio, we take a deep dive in looking at draft classes over the past several years. Is it time for the Jets to finally hit big with multiple star players in one haul? There are more Jamal Adams trade rumors. Will the team give Jamal the extension he is looking for? Sam Darnold leads the 2018 draft class in to their pivotal third season where we’re likley to find out who belongs and who doesn’t. We’ll also take a look at the JetNation message boards to discuss the best topics of the week. Our Podcast can now be found on Spotify. Also, be sure to subscribe to us on iTunes or Google Play.

  4. We hear it all the time from fan bases across the NFL. “Teams should put their players in the best position to succeed”. It seems like a fairly logical suggestion, but sadly we don’t see it as often as we should. Jets fans have to look no further than their team’s own failure to maximize the ability of running back Le’Veon Bell just last season. However, with the arrival of rookie safety Ashtyn Davis, it’s on the other side of the ball where the Jets may stand to get one of their best players to produce at an even higher level in safety Jamal Adams. Having been named an All-Pro in 2019 after making it as an alternate in 2018, Adams has cemented himself as one of the league’s top defenders, but could stand to raise his profile even more if Davis is as good as advertised. The folks at Pro Football Focus listed Davis, an athletic freak, as a first-round talent. Have any comments on this or anything else related to Jets football? Click here to log in and join our forums. New Jets safety Ashtyn Davis projects as a top-flight deep safety with plus slot coverage capabilities, as well. Davis still needs to improve his instincts/processing, but his range on the back end is up there with the best in this class — dude can fly.pic.twitter.com/Aj9ybAAUiO — Austin Gayle (@PFF_AustinGayle) April 25, 2020 Davis’ elite athletic traits allow him to cover tons of ground in the secondary while having a nose for the ball when coming downhill. But it’s that ability to cover, that if it should translate at the pro level, should be reason enough to put Jamal Adams in the spot where he has the biggest impact which is of course around the line of scrimmage. This isn’t to say Adams can’t’ cover, because he certainly can. However, Adams doesn’t have nearly the impact as a cover man that he does as a blitzer or in run support. In fact, in three pro seasons, Adams has dropped back in coverage 1,688 times according to PFF. That has resulted in 2 interceptions, one of which was a garbage time pick-six against Patriots backup Jarrett Stidham who was making his NFL debut. Of course there’s more to being in coverage than coming away with interceptions, but in terms of being a difference maker, there is no argument to be made, or not a sane one anyway, that says Adams doesn’t have a much bigger impact in the box. Once defensive coordinator Gregg Williams began asking Adams to do more up front this season, he began making more plays. In fact, leading up to their week 9 meeting against the New York Giants, Adams had picked up 8 quarterback pressures and one sack on the season. From week 10-17, even having missed two full games after playing on a bum ankle in week 13, Adams picked up 17 quarterback pressures and 5.5 sacks. Even with that being an unrealistic pace to keep over the course of a season, Adams’ dominance against the run game may not be as he has logged 28 tackles for lass through his first three seasons, his career best coming last season when he picked up 10 TFL’s despite a career low 14 games. Of course adding Davis to the defensive mix along with Adams would make it necessary to remove another defender from that package which shouldn’t be a problem for Gregg Williams given the versatility of both Davis and Adams who are free to line up in the slot, the boundary or at safety or even along the edge or inside linebacker in Adams’ case. If like many players before him, Davis is slow to adjust to the pro game (if at all), it becomes a moot point. But a strong start out of the gate for Davis could mean more time on the field for him with more splash plays from Adams. Both of which would be welcome sights for Joe Douglas and company.

  5. Looking to add a veteran presence to their quarterback room, Joe Douglas and the Jets have come to terms with former Ravens and Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco. Jets are signing former Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco to a one-year deal, sources tell ESPN. Jets GM Joe Douglas was a Ravens’ scout in 2008, when Baltimore drafted Flacco in round one. Now Flacco will rejoin Douglas, and compete for the backup job when he’s healthy and ready. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) May 22, 2020 Flacco is now reunited with Douglas who was a member of the Ravens organization when Baltimore drafted him back in 2008 as mentioned by Adam Schefter in his tweet regarding the one-year deal. Flacco is nowhere near the player he once was, but given the struggles the Jets have had in recent years when quarterback Sam Darnold missed time, it’s a wise move by the organization. Last season in Denver, Flacco went 2-6 as a starter with 6 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. The Jets now have a crowded quarterback room with Darnold, Flacco, rookie James Morgan and returning quarterbacks David Fales and Mike White.

  7. Are the Jets looking to add more mentors to their running back room? Gang Green has reportedly expressed interest in free agent running back Devonta Freeman according to NFL insider Michael Silver. The Seahawks' offer to free agent RB Devonta Freeman is a one-year deal that would be worth up to $4 million. He has also attracted interest from the Jets and Eagles. — Michael Silver (@MikeSilver) May 20, 2020 Freeman is reportedly taking his time to decide on a 1-year offer from the Seattle Seahawks according to Silver, but “has also attracted interest from the Jets and Eagles”. The Jets currently have Le’Veon Bell and Frank Gore under contract to go along with rookie running back La’Mical Perine. Freeman had his worst season as a pro in 2019 when he averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, but had never averaged less than 4.4 yards per carry over his previous 3 seasons.

  8. What NFL fan doesn’t like picking apart their team’s most recent draft class to come up with their own “comps” in trying to figure out which current or former player reminds them of members of the newest class? In the case of Mekhi Becton, observers have compared him to former Ravens Hall-of-Famer Johnathan Ogden, which would have Jets fans doing backflips, but Kristian Dyer of Sports Illustrated recently reported on Becton’s former college coach, Bobby Petrino and who he feels Becton reminds him of. Having spent time coaching the Jaguars in Jacksonville, Petrino said Becton is a combination of two elite tackles he worked with back then in Tony Boselli and Leon Searcy: “When I coached at the Jacksonville Jaguars, we had Tony Boselli on one side and Leon Searcy on the other side,” Petrino said. “Mekhi is a combination of the two – long, athletic and powerful.” The comparison from Petrino carries a bit more weight than most as he worked up close with all three players mentioned. Jets fans can only hope Petrino is proven right over time. For more on the interview with Dyer and Petrino, click here.

  11. We’ve all heard, said and read it a million times over. The New York Jets haven’t had a viable rusher off the edge since the days of John Abraham whose final season with the team was way back in 2005. Since then, there have been a string of busts consisting of Vernon Gholston, Lorenzo Mauldin and Ik Enemkpali to name a few. But could the Jets have an edge rusher already on the roster who is just waiting for an opportunity? When you look at the criteria for being an edge rusher as a starting point, you generally want an explosive athlete with upper-tier production at a major program, so as to avoid the Dylan Donahue’s of the world and preferably a guy who has shown he can compete against NFL linemen. Why is it then, that we hear so little about Jets edge rusher Jordan Willis? I can hear it now; “Jordan who”? Well, we’ll tell you who. Listed at 270 lbs, Willis is an athletic freak who racked up 20 sacks over his final two seasons at Kansas State, earning Big 12 defensive player of the year honors in 2016 when he tallied 11.5 sacks. His performance at the NFL combine answered any questions about his explosiveness and athleticism as he would have ranked in the top 10 of every category in this year’s class. In fact, when compared to other Jets edge players, he ranks at the top of almost every category and no worse than 2nd in any of them. Just take a look at the numbers, and we’ve even thrown in former NFL scout Pat Kirwain’s explosion score to see how each player stacks up. An explosion score above 70 is considered excellent. Bench 40 Vert Broad 3-cone Shuttle XP Score Jordan Willis 24 4.53 39 10′ 5” 6.85 4.28 73.41 Jordan Jenkins 16 4.8 36.5 10′ 1” N/A N/A 62.58 Tarell Basham 15 4.7 31.5 9′ 11” 7.27 4.35 56.41 Jabari Zuinga 29 4.64 33 10′ 7” N/A N/A 72.58 John Franklin-Myers 26 4.75 33 9′ 5” 7.36 4.48 68.5 Kyle Phillips* 17 4.68 32.5 9′ 7” 7.44 4.77 59.08 Wyatt Ray 25 4.83 34 9′ 10” 7.34 4.31 68.83 Harvey Langi 23 4.62* 33 9′ 10” 7 4.32 65.83 Frankie Luvu* 21 4.84 29.5 9′ 2” 7.03 4.26 59.66 *Pro Day *XP Score = Explosion Score (Bench + Vert + Broad) One of the reasons we decided to dig deeper with Willis was the fact that even though he rarely saw the field, we were seeing some good work from him on some All 22 reviews and wondered just how often he saw the field last season and if our opinions were echoed elsewhere. For that, we turned to the folks at Pro Football Focus, and it seems that at least they saw things the way we did. It would hardly come as a surprise to any Jets fan that all-pro safety Jamal Adams earned the teams highest grade when rushing the passer in 2019 at 89.9. But of course that’s looking at a DB coming in as an extra blitzer. We wanted to see where Willis stacked up among the team’s outside linebackers and defensive ends. The answer? Number one. That’s right. With just 105 pass rush attempts, Willis earned a PFF pass rush grade of 74.8. The next highest DE or OLB on the list is Jordan Jenkins at 67.4. With a total of 11 quarterback pressures (8 hits, 2 hurries and 1 sack), Willis averages a pressure roughly every 10 snaps, so is he a candidate to break out with increased reps in 2020? It sure would be nice, so we can stop talking, hearing and reading about how long it’s been since the Jets had a presence off the edge.

  12. In somewhat of a surprise development, NFL insider Mike Garofolo is reporting that Gang Green is still showing interest in free agent left tackle Jason Peters. Peters of course would be quite familiar with Jets GM Joe Douglas as the two spent time together in Philadelphia. From NFL Now on @nflnetwork: 38-year-old Jason Peters has recently told friends if Tom Brady can play into his 40s, so can he. The #Eagles have remained in contact with him as other teams (@JamesPalmerTV mentioned the #Browns, #Jets and #Broncos) lurk. pic.twitter.com/cxWq9qGmwI — Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) May 12, 2020 After taking left tackle Mekhi Becton with the 11th overall choice in the draft, any interest may come as somewhat of a surprise to Jets fans, but on many levels it would be a good move. It would give Becton a chance to start off in another spot on the O-line while picking the brain of one of the best left tackles in the NFL.
