New York Jets Free Agent Candidate: WR Adam Humphries

Recommended Posts

Cole Beasley is 5'8".  He'll be 30 when the season starts.  Golden Tate is 5'10".  He'll be 31 when the season starts.  Humphries will be 26.  Go younger!

Julian Edelman turns 33 next season.  The Pats should probably drop him when you think about it.

Antonio Brown turns 32 next season.  I wouldnt touch him if he was free of cost!!! 

Julio Jones turns 31 next season.  I wonder if the Falcons wise up and go younger!

AJ Green turns 31 next season.  I wouldnt take him for a 6th round pick. 

But if Eli Rodgers wants to come to NYC, I'd roll out the red carpet. 

Tate and Beasley are no hall of famers.  You can easily find more WR's on the wrong side of 30 on the decline.  That's a very small sample.  We want someone that can play with Sam for years. We're not in a win now mode.

You're missing the point.  Dont be Pac.  Bad person to follow with the worst track record on the board. 

3 of the best WR's in the NFL are +30.  The Super Bowl MVP is 33.  WR is not a position where you hit a wall at 30.   You can play well into your 30's.  Golden Tate gives Sam Darnold something he doesnt have currently and didnt have last season.  A professional WR who is consistently available, consistently open and consistently catches the ball.  Someone he can trust to be in the right spot every time he snaps the ball.  Q and Anderson are good but they're far from Tate's level of consistency.  There isnt a single WR on the market that gives you what Tate will. 

It's not about long term.  It's about Darnold's development right now.  You dont take chances on that.  You get guys who can help him even if it's for a year or 2 while he himself, learns how to be consistent and just hope that Big Mac can develop a pipeline of WR's to step up when Darnold himself has come into his own.  Cost be damned.  You cant put a monetary value on Darnold's development. 

 

I would be happy to have him at the right price.  The reason Detroit traded him was because they got wind that he was seeking Landry/Evans money.  15-16M.  I doubt he will get that considering his age but i'd think he will be looking to at least get Sanders/Baldwin money which is around 11M.

People need to get over this "right price" crap, no offense.  Here's the reality, you cant put a price tag on the development of Sam Darnold.  You dont take chances or worry about over spending, you commit to surrounding him with reliable targets that consistently get open and catch the Football.  The Jets have 100mil + in cap space, every single penny should be spent toward surrounding Sam with as much help as he can get it.  What else are you going to do with the money?

The other factor, this day in age in FA, you got to pay to play.  Bottom line.   And if your strategy as an organization was to save for  a big spending spree on FA's in the offseason, than you have to deal with an inflated market along the way.  Donte Moncrief made 9mil on the open market last year.  Donte ******* Moncrief.  I'd rather pay Golden Tate at 31, 12-14 mil all day long than go sign a sh*t bag like Donte Moncrief for 9 mil.  It's great that Tate wants Landry/Evans money but he's not in his mid 20's anymore.  He'll find himself on the market a very long time if that's his sticking point.

The idea of wasting 6-7 mil on a sh*t bag like Eli Rodgers vs. paying 12 mil on one of the most reliable WR's in the league is laughable.  Dont be laughable ie; dont be Pac. 

 

 

100M is not as much as you think especially with 1/3 of your roster gone.  I agree the priority is to help Sam but you still have to watch what you spend on.  If we land Bell and one of the top pass rushers, a third of that cap is gone on only 2 players.
