Darnold needs protection.  See Alex Smith (with a decent line).  If Darnold gets severely injured, the Jets are not relevant for a very long time.

Replace most of Carpenter, Harrison, Dozier and Qvale  with FAs and draft picks.  

Do the same next year for most of Beachum, Winters, Shell and Long.  

OL spend is high in 2019, but QB spend should not be. 

Hopefully the OL would be 3/5 first contracts in 2020.  at least 2/5.  Right now it is 1/5.  That is why the Jets OL spend is 10/32 and is still not good.

Keep him. I felt so bad for that guy. Bowles kept trotting him out there at center, even though he could hardly snap the ball. didn't complain, just did the best he could. performed well at Lg in pass protection. not much of a run blocker. Good depth, at least.

I believe the NFL requires that you field some type of a team for the regular season.

 

Can't cut everyone.

 

 

Just the entire OL is OK

This.  I dont think Long is a particularly good C.  Average to below average who might be a better G.  It sucks he's always banged up but you could do worse. 

That said, his snapping problem was 100% on Todd Bowles being an absolute moron.   The highlight of the season for me was when Long snapped like his 12th ball into the dirt vs. Miami and the camera scrolled over to a perfectly healthy and capable Jonotthan Harrison standing on the sideline watching the debacle take place and Buster Skrine looks at him and rolls his eyes so hard to basically say, "bro, this coaching staff are the biggest **** wads on the planet just throwing games away by refusing to put you in, sorry big fellas, this is straight lunacy".

 

The majority of our players had way better coaching in college, and it's not even close. I hope to God that this changes under Gase.

Agreed.  It’s amazing that it took Bowles so long to make that change.  Even the announcers were like what’s going on?

I'd restructure. 

Make him take $2M less. $1M is better than $0. Jets have leverage as Long WILL NOT get a better deal in the open market after this horrendous season he had. It is a weak Oline market, but he did himself no favors in improving his stock to the other NFL teams. If he IS signed it would be as a back-up and later on when injuries pile up in TC. 

I'd offer a restructure and he'll take it if his agent is smart

How are you going to that?  His roster bonus kicks in tomorrow, that $3.5 million guaranteed.  Why would he take less at that point?   The Jets have zero leverage.

He should never play center for the nj jets again, as in never. Guard?  fine.  Center no way in hell.

???  Disagree. Did you forget the fact that he had broken fingers and couldn't snap yet the moronic CS kept him in at center ?

Exactly plus we can't find any one in FA better than him for $1 mil. Ridiculous .

That, and there are only 4 O-Linemen with any kind of experience on the roster.  Cutting Long only creates another hole that would cost more to fill than paying Long to begin with.   Like him, hate him, he’s here for this year.

Long for $6mm on a team with $100mm of cap space that already counts that $6mm is about the absolute least of the Jets' problems.  

I would put Winters and Beachum there too.  

Williams-that is a different story.

The stigma is there, if i was darnold and this guy went back to center i'd be worrying from snap #1

As soon as Jonathon harrision took over thinks went much better.

Yes I agree .. because he was snapping the ball WITHOUT broken fingers. Bowles was/IS a mOron.
