    But wouldn’t the entire amount have become due  anyway at beginning of season?

    I think your call was extend a year at lower base but with a guarantee spread over 2 IIRC.

    The Jets would've released him before the season. That's why they had leverage.

    This is what I said on June 4th

    "Decrease his base salary but guarantee it. So instead of $11 million with no guaranteed money it decreases to $5-$6 million fully guaranteed.  Saves cap space for a guy like Morgan Moses and gives Crowder some financial stability

    I think that we all have our internal struggles or "demons" and generally speaking, people keep them to themselves. If society has accepted this form of life (LGBTQ), why continue to make headlines from it? It's time to move on. 

    If you think society has accepted this style of life you're dreaming. Maybe in your little bubble that's true but in society it's not.  There are entire religions who are not accepting. Evangelicals and Catholics make up about 180 million people in America and neither of them are accepting of LGBTQ. There may be a minority in these groups who are accepting but the majority don't agree with that lifestyle. But again, it's about the internal struggle and the strength it takes to come out in a society that is largely not accepting of that lifestyle.

    Basically what I expected to happen based on the Cole contract.  I had hoped that we would have converted his $10 million due this season into a two-year contract with the first year guaranteed at $5 million.  Instead we decided to let him walk after the season.  OK with me.  Glad to have him. 

    PS - Note how the remaining portion of his signing bonus is still there mucking things up?  It is always better to front load deals if at all possible instead of giving signing bonuses imo.  If you must pay the player up front, then front load the deal.  Forget the signing bonus.

    It's not a signing bonus, it's a roster bonus. Two totally different things.

    They signed Charles Leno when the Bears released him and then released Moses.

    It's really that they drafted Samuel Cosmi last year and he plays RT. Leno got a 1 yr $5 mil deal to play LT. Moses had no guaranteed money left on his contract and the release saved the Redskins about $8 million this year and next.

    Would love to see both of those happen.  The final piece would be a veteran backup QB signed or traded for just before Training Camp.

    I don't think we're adding a CB and I'm happy about that.  This looks like a young, talented, hungry group that is only lacking in experience at the CB spot.  I'm willing to see them stumble a bit as they grow this year rather than forcing one of these guys with a potentially good future off the team to make room for a 33 year old.

    Saleh said yesterday that not including the Superstars, the difference between A-Z at CB is just opportunity and you'll never know if that Z guy can become A if you don't give him a shot.

    Eh.  I think they will pick up some TEs, but I don't think it's going to be some big deal like Ertz or Njoku.  I predict they will be happy enough with Kroft and will make some bottom of roster moves for athletes they like and hope to come up with a Waller type find.  

    Maybe I'm wrong but this entire off-season, including this possible Moses deal, has been about upgrading every position possible on offense. It was reported that they made a run at Jonnu Smith in FA so I don't think they're done upgrading the position. Why would they choose to go balls to the wall upgrading the offense in FA and the draft and then just ignore the TE position? It was literally the worst TE room in the nfl in 2020 and all they did was add a career backup who couldn't start over Dawson Knox last year. 

    Yesterday, a reporter asked LaFleur about the TE position and the best thing he could say about all of them is that they're professional and you can tell they've played on Sundays. There was no talk about being excited to see how Kroft or Herndon play in this offense or anything like that. They're not satisfied with the TE room and how could anybody?

    Boys, maybe it's my rose(and green) colored glasses, but this significant push to sign Moses tells me that the staff and JD think they have enough talent to be competitive this year 

    Yep,  And some think they'll wait till next year to upgrade the TE position. It's happening this year.

    Ertz had a 50 % catch rate last season.  I'm sure one of the TEs on the roster can beat that.  Kroft's career catch rate is 68 %.  Herndon's is 69 % despite horrid QB play.

    Now do the 3 years before last season.

    Zach Ertz would be a nice red zone target for any QB. 

    Didn't you hear? He's not 25 or under and wasn't drafted by the Jets so they don't want him. 

    I can't wait for mid season and the same guys killing JD for not adressing TE as we watch Herndon drop passes and underwhelm like the other TE's on the roster.

    Here’s more bad news.  They aren’t going to the Super Bowl and are unlikely to have a winning season.   Let’s hope they grow into a team that just needs a few more pieces and we can challenge for a playoff spot in 2022.

    This season is not about the "team success", it's about developing a ******* rookie QB. An idea some of you seem to be allergic to.

    Oh they’ll get by with Kroft/Griffin and company. Just not looking at 12 personnel packages and an uptick of 10 personnel. Why do you think we have still have Crowder?

    Bc he took a substantial paycut. If he didn't, he'd be gone. Him being here still changed nothing in regards to their plans for the season

    This is the truest assessment of the likely situation we’re in this season. Can’t fix it all in one year. 

    we don’t have a long term solution at TE. Ertz, or Hayden? Please…. I don’t know Joe personally but I know that’s not his MO. 

    good news: next years TE class is juicy. 

    Here's the bad news, there is still a season this year. Jets need to close that hole at TE somehow. Kroft isn't going to cut it.

  13. Van Roten was actually pretty good in pass protection last year but he struggled in the run game. For what's its worth PFF has him as the 26th rated Guard entering the 2021 season. 



    Part of the overhaul on the New York Jets offensive line, Van Roten has been a consistently above-average pass-blocker in the NFL, even if his run blocking has been less than ideal on a similarly consistent basis. In his first season with the Jets, he allowed 24 total pressures from 13 games of action.

    Hes had a 40 catch 400 yards 7 td season under his belt so he can do it.

    No one is saying he is great but hes the best all around tight end on this roster and serviceable for a year until we can draft one next year.

    That was 4 years ago. He's had 20 receptions Total since then.

    The Bills have just as big of a hole at TE that the Jets do and they didn't even bring him back.

    He has 85 catches for 851 yards in 6 seasons.

    The Jets currently don't have the starting TE on the team. I think for sure they're going to address it prior to training camp. I can't see them ignoring it and letting a career backup TE start after they made so many investments to bring in playmakers to surround Wilson with. Along with backup QB its the biggest glaring hole in the offensive roster. I think they're using the OTA's and mini camp to evaluate the offense and they'll go out and be aggressive bringing in veterans to patch those holes. At least that's what I hope they do. 

    They need to do everything to make it easy on Wilson these first couple of years. Leaving a hole at TE would be crazy.

    Anybody know what time this starts?

    The only thing I've seen is "late in the morning". I'm going to assume around 11 am bc I feel like that's similar to when OTA's started
