Many of the same people who have bitched incessantly for a year about drafting 2 safeties and abhor the idea of drafting Minkah Fitzpatrick are now whining that we didn't sign Tyran Mathieu.  If there

There’s a realistic chance Allen could be 2nd QB off the board after Darnold right now . 

Well the way the Jets luck has been running, he won’t be.

Seeing as how our GM is an incompetent moron and Josh Allen is the only realistic one of the 4 who will drop, I'd thoroughly be ok with passing on a QB this year and waiting until we clean house, AGAIN, to draft someone. That's what this regime has done to me.  This years draft hasn't even happened yet, and I'm trying to figure out who we should hire next and who they should draft in 2019.

 

I hate Albright but I hope this is right if they jump ahead of us.

I honestly have no idea how anybody can defend this front office right now. They have literally whiffed all day after talking publicly about how active they were going to be. Almost every top free agent at a position of need for the Jets is gone and we have not signed one. The next shoe that's going to drop is when they pass up on a QB in the draft bc they signed Bridgewater. I can see it already. Macc needs to be fired the day after the draft if that happens. How this ownership is accepting this is beyond me. This is embarrassing.

would you prefer Average or JAG? 

How about below average or scrub.  We are reduced to signing players who are just happy to be in the league.

Malcom Butler signs with Titans

Upon hearing this, Bowles cried much like Alexander the Great did when told there were no more empires to conquer. And ORDERED Maccagnan to draft Minks F___ing Fitzpatrick.

Very active doesn't mean splash moves. You're smarter than that

I have no idea how you can even defend this guy right now. And when he says he's going to be very active the first day that implies big signings. Get off your knees and stop embarrassing yourself.

Bringing Crowell in has to indicate we are preparing to blow a load of draft picks to trade up. Surely, right? 

If so, it's a decent move in a poor RB FA market. 

Only centre, guard, cb and wr to upgrade now then. Easy....

Is it three for $91M? or is it $27M per year? It can’t be both cause the math is off.... by $10M, which makes me think nobody REALLY knows. 

Guess they knew..

The quarterback-needy Vikings have taken a decisive lead in the open-market chase for Kirk Cousins.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Cousins -- the prize of free agency -- is likely to sign a three-year deal from the Vikings that includes approximately $84 million guaranteed. As expected, that tops the $27.5 million per year Jimmy Garoppoloearned from the 49ers.

Cousins is slated to attend dinner with coaches and other essential Vikings personnel on Wednesday before visiting the club's brand new facility on Thursday.

 

 

"They believe they've got him," Rapoport tweeted Tuesday, adding: "They do not want him to leave the building."

As he has for weeks, Rapoport described Minnesota as being in the "driver's seat" for Cousins, the 29-year-old veteran who also drew interest from the Broncos before Denver opted to pursue ex-Vikings passer Case Keenum.

The Cardinals and Jets remain in the mix, too, but hopes are fading for anyone not named the Vikings. While New York boasts more salary-cap space than any team league-wide, it's the Vikings who can dangle the prize of a Super Bowl-ready roster.

Despite Keenum's marvelous work last season, the Vikings made it a priority to address their quarterback room. In Cousins, they nab the only quarterback outside of Philip Rivers with at least 4,000-plus passing yards and 25 touchdowns through the air in each of the past three seasons.

Entering his seventh campaign, Cousins has ranked as one of the NFL's top 10 quarterbacks since 2015, measuring third in completion percentage and game-winning drives.

In Minnesota, Cousins would guide a Vikingsattack flush with receiving talent and returning rookie running back Dalvin Cook to go along with one of the NFL's deepest and grittiest defensive squads.

It's possible the Jets, armed with barrels of money, make a last-ditch play for Cousins, but the Vikings will have their man in their building first -- and they don't plan to let him escape.

Bringing Crowell, Butler, Norwell, Robinson and Jensen in would have indicated we were prepared to spend all our picks to trade up.  

What sucks...we had the cap room to go after all of those guys.  Instead, we got Crowell, McCown, and $75MM of cap room with very few players worth spending even half of it on left.  Maybe we get Jensen.  But with Richburg signed elsewhere, it's only going to cost more or be harder to do.  

Macc looks to have been completely unprepared for this week.  He is whirling in circles while other GMs run past and around him.  CLE is a team on a mission.  BUF is a team with a plan.  JAX, PHI and SF have improved themselves.  NYJ is a team that has no clear direction and looks to be taking no steps towards rapid improvement.  And just don't start with "let's give him more time".  There is no way we can spend our remaining salary cap better than if we'd gone out and actually aggressively targeted some of the guys who are already gone.  Teams with far less cap than us found a way to do it.

I'm finding myself leaning towards adopting the Jaguars this year.  Watching Fournette run behind Norwell along with that defense will be far more entertaining than anything McCown and the Jets will be able to do this year.

I'm not defending anything  but let's not assume we know about all of the players they have contacted 

Some players will Want to go on visits as well and that can't happen until after Wednesday I believe

PFF list of Top FAs to avoid:

TRUMAINE JOHNSON

Johnson has all the traits of an elite corner, and the fact that he was franchised twice already might suggest he is one, but nothing in our grading agrees with that evaluation. In fact, it can be argued that Johnson was the weak link in the Rams’ secondary at times last year. He gave up at least 79 yards in four separate games and his 759 yards allowed were fifth-most among all corners. He’s a solid starter, but is not worth near what he got paid the past two seasons.
