With such a deep DB draft...

Yeah that is definitely contributing to this rumor I think.

The idea that the Jets should pass on a FA because of how deep the draft class is at a certain spot is not the way to think about it. Jets need to fill needs in FA. Yes, This draft is really deep and hopefully we can get some good players at DB, OLB, TE, or RB, but we only have so many picks. Getting Perry doesn't put us out of the running for selecting another OLB. Same with any other position.

I do understand that teams are calculating the depth of the draft in relation to the CB market though. Will be interesting how that influences the amount teams are willing to pay.

Is Kurt cousins a possibility?

With a deep draft of CBS and Edge rushers(our biggest needs), I would be opposed to throwing majority of our cap space at cousins and lock him up

Did we get Shanahan to come and coach from 49er's?

Per CBA, they may have to spend $$ to get to the salary floor. They had a ton of cap space. 

Someone better versed on the CBA can chime in. 

Ironically mentioning Macc would make sense considering, IIRC, that's exactly why we spent what we spent in 2015.

I came across this from Dec 2016.  

 

•  Speaking of the Raiders, they’ve got a little spending to do over the next few months. The CBA set cash-spending floors for teams over two four-year periods—2013-16 and 2017-20. Over each of those, every club must spend to 89 percent of the cap in cash. And with the end of the first period upon us (to clarify from the earlier edition of the story, they have until the end of the league year in March) , the NFLPA will release figures this week that show the Raiders are the only team that hasn’t yet reached the threshold, according to a union source. Oakland is close and may be able to get there naturally as players hit incentives over the coming weeks, and have players like Derek Carr and Khalil Mack that would be worth extending and will be eligible for new deals as soon as the season ends. Also, the requirement that the league-wide spend exceed 95 percent of the cap over that four-year period has already been met. All of this means each team spent in excess of a half-billion dollars on players between 2013 and ’16, and players have taken home a total of around $17 billion total in cash over that time.

I guess watching all of those LBs in a deep draft class put up freak numbers at the Combine really inspired the Jets to give a free agent linebacker a monster deal. Wise. Wise, Jets. 

Not sure this would stop the Jets from drafting an OLB outside the first and also not convinced there's an OLB with drafting at 6 (assuming Garrett doesn't make it there, if he does you take him no matter what they do in FA). Don't think the LB's were that freakish either.

The Jets will always Jets, but it's hard to complain about them taking a shot on a young pass rusher IMO. They could do a lot of worse things in FA.

Garrett going number 1 to the Browns so we don't gotta worry about that

pretty soon the nfl is going to be like the nba in guaranteeing salaries or making sure that the contracts have to even out between teams if they make trades.  i wonder if the nfl has a plan for when the revenues start going down?

The Raiders hit the cap limit when their players were selected to the probowl( got their bonuses).    Raiders have the nineth most cap space but shouldn't be big players in Fa .( should be hearing Derek Carr extension real soon.( which will take a large chunk of their cap space.

Any movement at all on the cornerbacks yet?

Not sure if this was discussed in the thread, I haven't read every page.  But found this nugget that the Jets are targeting


Jets interested in Cardinals CB, former Rutgers star Marcus Cooper, source says

The Jets have interest in Cardinals' free agent cornerback Marcus Cooper, a source familiar with the situation told NJ Advance Media. Cooper, 27, played college football at Rutgers

Originally a seventh-round pick by the 49ers in 2013, Cooper has bounced around the NFL a bit. San Francisco cut him after training camp, then he latched on with the Chiefs. He spent three years in Kansas City, then was traded to the Cardinals.

In 54 career games, Cooper has 136 tackles, 32 passes defensed and seven interceptions. In 2016, he set career-highs in tackles (69) and interceptions (4) playing opposite Patrick Peterson. He was a Pro Bowl alternate.

The Jets' secondary is in a bit of a transition period. Last week, they released Darrelle Revis. Just Juston Burris, Darryl Roberts and Buster Skrine are under contract for 2017. The Jets are expected to use the second-round tender on Marcus Williams, a source told NJ Advance Media at the NFL Combine.

 

Any chance of Romo to Jets?

Any chance of Romo to Jets?

The Cowboys are releasing quarterback Tony Romo, but that doesn't mean the Jets, who desperately need a quarterback, will get in line to sign him, nor that Romo will want to entertain being the next Jets passer.

 

While Cooper doesn't have a direct connection to Todd Bowles (Arizona's defensive coordinator 2013-2014), he fits a lot of what the Jets' coach is looking for in a cornerback. He's big (6-2, 192 pounds), physical and a ballhawk. He's also an athletic freak. Cooper ran a 4.44 second 40-yard dash, and jumped a 39.5-inch vertical, at his Pro Day.

Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan has been busy this offseason. After freeing nearly $50 million in salary cap space, he got the Jets roughly $34 million under the cap. That's more than enough room to add Cooper, who doesn't figure to break the bank. 

The Jets have also expressed interest in arguably the top pass rusher in free agency, Nick Perry, a source told NJ Advance Media

Trevor Siemen rumblings

Trevor Siemian - QB -  Broncos

USA Today's Tom Pelissero "would't be surprised" if the Jets called the Broncos about Trevor Siemian, should Tony Romo land in Denver.

Romo would make Siemian expendable, and likely available for a third- through fifth-round pick. There were rumors the 49ers and Bills might have Siemian interest, but San Francisco signed Brian Hoyer, and Buffalo restructured Tyrod Taylor's deal. The Jets whiffed on Hoyer and appear to have lost out on free agent Mike Glennon to Chicago. Bryce Petty and Christian Hackenberg round out the current quarterback depth chart in New York.

That would be cool. You assume he'd be available and Lynch would be their eventual starter with Romo in place for another two years. I'll take him. He's got a year under his belt and love that experience as a starter.

mmm.. yeah if you trade for Siemian that's like trading for petty.  He has a year of experience but wasn't good enough to win the front office or fans for the job.

 

Would force Bowles to play Petty/Hack though.. but hard to get excited for.

I wouldn't give up a 3rd, 4th, or 5th round pick for Siemian. Maybe a 7th. But that's about it.

We'll end up trading a 7th for Chase Daniel or Brandon Weeden

Don't want to give up a pick for Siemian. Seems like a waste of an asset. Sign some mediocre vet like Foles or Barkley, have a competition with the young guys on the roster, and proceed with the tank without giving anything up.

Why would anyone trade for semien? Ugh. He's just not that good. I'll bring in anyone in for a look but I'm not giving up picks for a retread when we're in the middle of a rebuild. I'd rather just sign Cutler for the year and I hate Cutler.

Simean is only 25 years old and looked pretty decent for the broncos. He would be worth giving up a 5th for after all the other qb needy teams sign their free agents. He has a bit of experience and could join petty and hack in an open competition and if any of the three panned out we could have a qb for a long time.

With the Colts, Falcons, and Packers in play, the Jets are going to have to come up with a good offer for Perry.

Fanbase reaction has not been pleasant.
