Trumain Johnson has already stated in numerous other media that he loves Williams... he played with him in St. Louis... Tru wasn't the slacker the media made him out to be ... WIlliams and Lee are...

I want to see this Williams pre-draft - perhaps a smart Attack the Offense Coordinator can get this:

NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah also considers Williams the most dominant player in the draft. 

Leonard Williams, from all the guys I've seen so far, has been the most dominating player, Everything you want -- the size, the length, the explosiveness, the versatility. You can play him all over the line on defense. He reminds me a lot of Richard Seymour. That's pretty good company to keep.

2-3 years of teaching and building can set a player up for a lifetime of success...nothing to sneeze at.

That is fine, it doesn't change my statement.  You have to have guys who can step in and take over for him, because he wears out his welcome quickly.  Not a guy you can count on for any amount of time.

Hopefully the jets have good a secession plan in place.  Williams doesn't last places very long.  2 or 3 years at the very most.

Where would they secede? Maybe the XFL would be a good look for the Jets.

I prefer the guy sign and get to work rather than sign and do a photo-op and news conference. 

This would be a huge hire that would allow him to focus on Darnold and the offense, which is really what he was hired to do. That's what makes the job attractive to a DC like Williams; he'll be given complete autonomy on that side of the ball.  

SLATS! 

Well, I wished for it and it's looking slightly rosy so far..  but yeah...  

but, wait, hold on...  isn't Cleveland the new Tahiti? Doesnt everyone wanna go vacation there, retire in the paradiscal penumbra of Baker Mayfield's fun personality?

Browns head coach Hue Jackson mentioned on Sunday that Williams always gets the most out of his players. In some ways, he is similar to Jackson when it comes to versatility and creativity.

I think the reporter meant this as a complement .... but ....

The prospect of a 4-3 seems surreal to me. What does it even mean?(I know what a 4-3 is) 

All I’ve known is 3-4 defense without a pass rusher. This is exciting. 

While I have absolutely no problem at all with a switch to a 4-3, but in that case it makes finding of a real pass rusher even more vital (although, it's obviously high on the list either way).  Not that it worked out all that well for the Jets in recent years mind you, but at least in theory, the slight benefit that comes with the 3-4 is that the direction of the rush isn't constant and therefore always known.  While there can always be the occasional blitzers in a 4-3, as a general rule the rush is coming from the same guys every play.

With that said, 4-3 rushers are also considered easier to find, due to the exact reason of the more things a 3-4 OLB is responsible for, so it's certainly manageable for them to address.  The only point is, if they don't address rusher at all this offseason, it's not going to be pretty.

Thats ******* Big time.

 

Now keep Boyer, sh*tcan Dowwell Logface or whatever his name is and get a legit OC/Assistant, and hire McCown as QB coach. 

Purportedly Loggains has a HC interview with Miami

Darron Lee is not a slacker the defensive schemes the morons Bowles and Rodgers ran did not bring out the best in him.

Exactly, if the McCarthy non hire taught us anything is not to get your hopes too high with this franchise.

It certainly hasn't detracted the thread crapper extraordinaires from making their voices heard.

See what I meant?

Not done.  Not close to done.

Unless it is done.

Unless it's not.

Maybe.

 

Rapoport is pretty good though. But you are right, when I posted the article on the front page I made sure to be clear it was a RapSheet report. Things can change, hopefully they don't.

Lee was suspended for PEDs and must fear he will be tested again.

He may show up to camp at his natural 185.

Not much left there to bring the best out of.
