Okay so now that our beloved Jets set us straight back to reality my focus is now shifted to the offseason and improving this team. So what does Joe Douglas do? What does Joe Douglas' history tell us? To be honest I don't know much about his team building philosophy other than I know he likes to build from within with building up the OL. Does he make a move with Bell? Bell has impressed me with his composure despite knowing he's not being utilized properly and has been nothing but a team player. He's been cool, calm and collect for this team but if they can get something for him and put that saved money towards the OL then I'm all for it.
Does he retain Robby Anderson? If Gase is staying I don't see them resigning Robby and I see them trying to find a way to get rid of Bell. With this draft being deep in WR and RB I can see a scenario where they don't resign Robby and find a way to trade Bell. While impossible, I'd love to get an idea on who he intends on keeping around. Does he pay Jordan Jenkins? I would. This may sound crazy but my offseason looks like this for some of the bigger players...
-Robby Anderson; It would solely depend on his asking price. Anything more than $10-12 per and I'm letting him go. Something tells me he'll ask for more so I'm assuming he's gone.
-Le'Veon Bell; I love the kid and what he's all about when it comes to football but if they can trade him for a decent return (2nd round maaaaybe 3rd) I'm letting him go because I can get another really good RB in this draft at a much cheaper price. The money that is saved can be put towards improving the OL.
-Brian Poole; I'm giving him an extension as soon as possible.
-Jordan Jenkins; Really like the improvement he's been showing. With a healthy Mosley and Williamson and with Q in his second year I think he puts together a dominant season next year.
-Powell; With the deep RB class unfortunately he's gone
-Beachum; Played well when healthy. I would keep him around at the right price in the case where we strike out at Tackle.
I only pray that they release Winters, save the 8 million, and go hard at Scherff and land him to start the offseason. Then they can focus on C and T and really upgrade this line.
