This post is EXACTLY why I keep returning to this forum. It's a crappy neighborhood full of crazies, obsoletes, and morons, but it's my Jets  home. :wub:

If the Jets are going to overpay anybody in FA, I would rather it be a 26 year old OLBer with production than a QB who's an unknown

Well, the Jets got McCown, you knew the Browns were gonna have to retaliate.

NFL Draft 2017: Penn State LB Brandon Bell to visit Eagles, Giants, Jets, report says

 

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl Game-Penn State vs Southern California

Mays Landing native and Penn State linebacker Brandon Bell will be taking pre-NFL Draft visits to the EaglesGiants and Jetsaccording to a report from Penn State 24-7. 

Projected to be a Round 6-7 prospect in next month's NFL Draft in Philadelphia, Bell was a stalwart on the Nittany Lion defense and widely viewed as one of the team's staunchest leaders. Last season, Bell finished with 89 tackles, four sacks, three forced fumbles and two interceptions.

Bell suffered an elbow injury on an interception return off USC quarterback Sam Darnold in the Nittany Lions' loss to the Trojans in the Rose Bowl. The injury capped Bell's collegiate career. Earlier last season, Bell was sidelined for four games last season with a leg injury. 

"[The injury] didn't hurt as much, the loss lingered with me maybe a little bit longer," Bell said of his Rose Bowl injury. "Everyone is different. It stung. Obviously, we wanted to win. Me getting hurt. But you get over it."

As Penn State 24-7 points out, Bell ran a 4.68 in the 40-yard dash, recorded 15 reps on the bench press and leapt 35 inches in the vertical jump at the Nittany Lions Pro Day. 

Bell isn't the only Penn State product on radars as the team has set up a private workout with wide receiver Chris Godwin, as well.

Here are highlights from Bell's senior season:

Younger and better replacement for Marshall. Get him medical marijuana clearance. Could backfire though, he might forget his routes.

NFL rules supercede state law for pot. They can have a more restrictive drug policy than what is legal. Lots of legal drugs on the list. Just like other businesses, if you want to work for the NFL, you have to adhere to rules.

Mike Maccagnan’s top priority is rebuilding Jets, even if it means bringing in players with bad character  

A JAN. 14, 2016 FILE PHOTO

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan will do whatever it takes to fix Gang Green. 

  (JULIO CORTEZ/AP)

Mike Maccagnan is the new Father Flanagan in town, eager to save wayward souls to help save his bad football team.

The Jets are in the business of winning games. No matter how much anyone waxes poetic about character, the bottom line in this bottom-line industry: Character doesn't really matter.

Bad character and Maccagnan's mantra that players must truly love football are not mutually exclusive. Sketchy dudes can give their heart and soul to the game.

The Jets general manager has proven that his top priority in rebuilding the mess that he inherited a couple of years ago centers on finding committed players regardless of their questionable makeup.

In the past week, the Jets claimed a player who missed eight games last season after twice failing the league's substance abuse program and set up a meeting with another player who might or might not have wanted to retire (depending on who you ask) before missing the entire season with an ankle issue.

The Jets' decision to claim 25-year-old nose tackle Mike Pennel off waivers from the Packers last week was the ultimate low-risk endeavor. Pennel technically doesn't even have a contract. Maccagnan will have a month to assess whether it's worth doling one out to the 6-4, 335-pound Pennel, who is scheduled to be a restricted free agent. If not, they'll cut him loose. No harm, no foul.

Free-agent cornerback K'Waun Williams is scheduled to visit with the Jets on Wednesday, according to a league source, after the strangest of seasons. Williams, who started 10 games for the Browns in 2014 and 2015, filed a grievance against Cleveland in September seeking money for an impending ankle surgery and his 2016 base salary.

The Browns suspended Williams for two games last August for refusing to play in a preseason game in Green Bay. Williams, 23, reportedly claimed that he was going to retire after losing his starting nickel corner job before saying that a sore ankle was the reason why he couldn't play against the Packers.

The Bears claimed Williams after the Browns waived him at the end of August. Chicago ultimately parted ways with him. Williams was recently medically cleared after undergoing surgery to remove bone chips in his ankle.

In September, Maccagnan picked up talented, but troubled tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins a few days after a second D.U.I arrest and accompanying embarrassing video from the incident. The general manager was in a particularly giving mood, because his tight end situation was a mess. Seferian-Jenkins didn't really help much, but he did stay out of trouble for the rest of the season.

What does this all mean? Well, the Jets are desperate to find guys who can help them wash away the stink of the 2016 season. The talent void on Todd Bowles' roster is obvious. There's no real harm in making low-risk, high-reward moves with the hope of one or two sticking.

The NFL isn't made up of choir boys. Nobody is perfect. Plenty of players have baggage, but there's a malfeasance threshold that Maccagnan shouldn't cross. Last year, the Jets didn't draft Tyreek Hill, who had pleaded guilty to choking his pregnant girlfriend in 2015.

Of course, if Maccagnan even thinks about drafting Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon, who punched a woman and broke bones in her face, we'll have an altogether different story.

So we are talking trading one of our best defensive players for a 4th round pick.........................

Given his history and a possible suspension if he screws up again, unfortunately yes. I think Sheldon is a great talent used properly but after his pre game  comments and arrest, I think it's a possibility.

Bad move considering our draft history we have a proven NFL star vs a what if draft pick.

Yes!

  • All he does in 2017 is potentially win us a game or two, but we are not making the playoffs.
  • He is not, and should not, be on the team in 2018 and beyond.
  • His salary can be applied to the cap in 2017 and beyond-can extend Enunwa with it, for example.
  • At best he gets us a "3rd round" (very late) pick in 2018.  Could be lower if he does not sign for a great contract, or we sign other FAs.
  • In this draft our old 4th round pick is pretty good.  The Redskins 3rd round pick is a home run

A "what if" draft pick guarantees you nothing not even to win us 1 game. 

No draft pick is a home run here not even the #1 pick,havent you learned anything yet.

The 2017 will not be a playoff team and SR will not be on the team in 2018.

On that basis, I support moves that maximize the value of the SR relationship.

To me, that is not paying him in 2017, getting a reasonable draft pick in the 2017 draft and having him not win the team any games, and perhaps developing other DL for the future.  The Jets should win games with who they are long term, not a 1 year rental.

The alternative is using 2017 cap for him, getting a 3rd or 4th round pick in 2019 (maybe), haviing the coaches struggle to use him and having him take snaps from other players.

On that basis I would move McClendon while we are at it.
