  1. ..he had to have surgery for a back injury.he's hoping to be back. just an fyi ; > https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/30957726/kansas-city-chiefs-tackle-mitchell-schwartz-back-surgery-eyes-healthy-2021-season ~ ~ mitchschwartz71 Verified Injury Update: I’m getting surgery today. I was hoping to recover enough during the season to get back on the field, especially for the playoffs and Super Bowl, but that never happened. It’s time to address the issue since it isn’t going away on its own. The recovery process isn’t too long, hence being able to wait until now to do it, otherwise I would have done this earlier. Looking forward to a healthy 2021! #Chiefs #ChiefsKingdom 6w
  2. The NFL Players Association continues to push back against the NFL’s desire for in-person workouts this spring. The union wants an all-virtual offseason, arguing it is the smartest and safest approach.NFLPA President JC Tretter told players on a call Friday the union will urge players not to show up if teams conduct in-person organized team activities, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports. “We’ve been telling them: It’s voluntary, and we’re not gonna go,” Tretter said, via Pelissero. Of the NFL’s 2,500 players, some 300 have workout bonuses they would lose by skipping OTAs, according to Pelissero.Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the lone mandatory work before training camp is a June minicamp. The union wants even that to be virtual again this year because of the ongoing pandemic.Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians has pointed out that a virtual offseason program benefits veteran players. “If we lose spring, [young players] are not getting developed. The veterans love that s–t, because that means they don’t get to take their jobs,” Arians said in February. Talks continue between the NFL and the NFLPA over the offseason program. Phase One is scheduled to begin April 19 with players allowed to work out at the team facility in small groups. > https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/09/nflpa-tells-nfl-it-will-urge-players-not-to-show-up-for-any-in-person-offseason-work/

  4. Why Joe Douglas waited so long to trade Sam Darnold there was an explanation for the delay. Joe Douglas was being patient, but also wanted to see the top quarterbacks in the draft in person before ultimately deciding his plans at the position. It is why the Jets waited so long to move Sam Darnold, after quarterbacks Matthew Stafford, Jared Goff and Carson Wentz were dealt prior to the free-agency period. “I don’t know how every team approaches a quarterback [evaluation], but I’ve always thought it was a golden rule — you don’t ever take a quarterback until you stand near or next to a guy and watch him throw the football,” Douglas told Sports Illustrated. “None of the top brass were able to get out to a BYU game this year. There were no all-star games, no combine. You could see Mac Jones at the Senior Bowl. But other than that, your only opportunity to stand there and watch them throw was at a pro day. To me, that’s huge for a quarterback.”Douglas saw all of the top quarterbacks – Zach Wilson of BYU, Justin Fields of Ohio State, Mac Jones of Alabama and Trey Lance of North Dakota State – the Jets will be able to pick from with the second choice in the draft. (Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence is widely expected to be selected No. 1 by the Jacksonville Jaguars.) “Almost every pro day I went to I got something out of,” Douglas said. “A guy like Trey Lance, I thought Trey Lance had a strong arm, I walked away from North Dakota State saying, ‘Wow, this guy has better arm talent than I thought on the tape.’ Getting a sense for it, watching the ball come out of his hand, you’re there, field-level, you’re seeing it –does the ball drop at all at the end of the throw, is it accelerating through the guy’s hands? You really get a sense for that, that you wouldn’t normally see on tape.”Eventually, the Jets traded Darnold to the Panthers for a sixth-rounder this year and second-round and fourth-round picks in 2022. They nearly moved him before free agency, the general manager said, but the team wasn’t ready to pull the trigger. “It was a strong offer,” Douglas said. “We told them, ‘Look, there’s still a lot of boxes left to check. And we just don’t feel comfortable, in case something happens with one of the top two guys, we don’t want to get caught in a bad situation, like one of two guys fails a physical and then we don’t have Sam.’ So we didn’t do anything.” > nypost.com/2021/04/09/why-joe-douglas-waited-so-long-to-trade-sam-darnold/

  7. The worst kept secret at One Jets Drive has left Joe Douglas without many offers for the No. 2 overall pick. New York hasn’t received many legitimate calls from teams for their first-round selection, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, despite the bevy of prospects at the top of the draft. Some of this lack of interest may be because of the price it would cost to move up – the 49ers gave up three first-round picks and more to trade up from No. 12 to No. 3 – but most likely it’s because many teams assume or know the Jets are taking a quarterback and aren’t interested in giving up the pick. “It seems to be what everyone thinks is that the Jets are going to take Zach Wilson,” Rapoport added. “Everyone is so sure that they haven’t even bothered to call.” Douglas effectively admitted the Jets are taking a quarterback when he traded Sam Darnold this week and told reporters it’s a “fair assessment” they’ll draft his replacement. It’s almost a foregone conclusion that the player will be BYU’s Wilson, too, based on the optics that both the 49ers and Eagles traded on the same day as Wilson’s pro day with Douglas and Robert Saleh in attendance. The 49ers moved up to No. 3, while the Eagles traded back when they realized there was no shot they could move up and get Wilson. Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young also reported the Jets were “committed” to Wilson. Douglas noted that Young is “plugged into BYU pretty well,” per ESPN.At this point, it seems like it would take a king’s ransom to pry the second pick away from the Jets. With Douglas locked in on his quarterback of the future, it wouldn’t make much sense for them to trade back and lose out on the player they covet just for more draft capital. > https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2021/04/08/2021-nfl-draft-jets-havent-received-interest-no-2-pick-zach-wilson/

  9. The Jets appear locked in on a quarterback with the No. 2 pick, but that hasn’t stopped Joe Douglas from looking at a veteran to sit behind him. Brian Hoyer, who played for the Patriots last year, is set to visit the Jets today, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. He only appeared in one game in 2020, throwing for 130 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in a Week 4 loss to the Chiefs.The 13-year veteran would play backup and mentor to the Jets’ rookie quarterback.Hoyer has a few connections to the Jets. He started six games for the 49ers in 2017 when Mike LaFleur was the passing game coordinator and went 7-6 with the Browns in 2014 when LaFleur was an intern under offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. If anything, Hoyer would be familiar with the offense the Jets will likely run in 2021 and would be a fine fill-in quarterback if necessary. This wouldn’t be the first time the Jets courted Hoyer, either. They brought him in for a visit in 2016 as a fallback plan if contract negotiations with Ryan Fitzpatrick fell through. Hoyer ultimately signed with the Bears while the Jets signed Fitzpatrick, though neither quarterback performed well.Right now, the Jets’ “plan” for QB2 is 2020 is fourth-round rookie James Morgan, who didn’t see the field once last year and wasn’t even activated for a game. Bringing in a veteran like Hoyer, who understands the offense already, would help bridge the gap between the playbook and the field for whichever rookie quarterback the Jets draft. > https://jetswire.usatoday.com/2021/04/08/brian-hoyer-visit-new-york-jets-2021-nfl-free-agency-patriots/

  15. Now that the dust has settled on the Jets’ trade of quarterback Sam Darnold to the Panthers, let’s take a step back and examine general manager Joe Douglas’ salary cap situation.The Jets will have to take on a $5.01 million dead money cap hit as part of the Darnold trade. But they did free up $4.77 million in cap space by dealing him.That means the Jets currently have $24.84 million in 2021 cap space, according to overthecap.com’s estimate. That ranks fourth in the NFL, behind the Jaguars, Broncos, and Colts. But remember, the Jets still have to pay their draft picks — most notably, their new quarterback. That’ll probably be BYU’s Zach Wilson, with the second overall pick. Wilson will have a $6.391 million cap hit in 2021. All told, Douglas must set aside about $9.43 million in cap space for his 2021 draft picks, according to overthecap.com.So that essentially lowers Douglas to about $15.41 million in current cap space.That’s still enough to sign a reasonably priced veteran or two (like cornerback Richard Sherman). And remember, teams can roll over cap space from one year to the next. So Douglas doesn’t need to use all of it this offseason, as he continues to rebuild.While Douglas is probably done making significant roster cuts, in order to free up more cap space, he could still work out a long-term contract with Marcus Maye, his franchise-tagged free safety. That would lower Maye’s 2021 cap number, which is currently $10.61 million — fourth-highest on the team. > https://www.nj.com/jets/2021/04/here-is-latest-on-jets-salary-cap-situation-after-joe-douglas-trades-sam-darnold-to-panthers-clearing-way-for-byus-zach-wilson.html
