I’m not a Bell guy, but two major OL moves (if there’s any truth to this one) before free agency officially even starts could be part of an effort to get his attention. 

Perhaps.  Or it could be an effort to make the OL so strong that any JAG RB will find success, just in case we don't get Bell and/or aren't interested in the first place.

It's great that we got a guard and (maybe) a center. But what about the tackle position? Still crap.

I imagine that would be the only 2 big splashes we make in Free Agency.  Any other OL of significance would need to come from the draft.

And realistically that's the easiest piece to get. IF Macc can get Paradis to sign, the heay lifting is done. Just depth signings and draft for the OL. Then they need to pivot to skill positions and secondary.

Name a free agent OT who’s better than what’s already on our roster. I think we end up drafting a OT in round 3.

Yep.  I wouldn't bother with any big money OT's in free agency.  With how scarce the talent is at OT, and how important both T spots are, those guys get let go for a reason.

then the question would be, are they able to trade back in the first, b/c if they are then T would have to be in play.  but if they stay at 3 it's probably going to be Q, i have begun reconciling with.

There's nothing wrong with holding on to Beachem at LT for one more year. Then the Jets can let him walk without much of a cap hit. You have a better idea? Should we have signed Brown to a 60mil contract like the Raiders? Or maybe we just draft one #3 overall and pencil him in as a Pro Bowl LT before he takes a single snap in the nfl?

LG and C could very well be two Pro Bowlers, and then you have Winters (who is decent- let's be honest, not great but not terrible) and Shell, who when healthy has looked like a solid RT. 

So yeah, bringing in Paradis would be the final piece FOR NOW. It's a MASSIVE upgrade from last year.

Yeah, we're likely not going to find an OT upgrade outside of the first 2 rounds.  We can build an interior OL pipeline in the middle rounds, though.

I disagree.  Shell actually had a pretty good year before hitting IR towards the end of the season.

Beachum had a slightly above average year but he's no slouch.  The real weakness of the Jets o-line was the interior and if they lock up Paradis they will have addressed that.

I almost want us to lose out on Paradis just to dash your weird, misguided faith in this dunce.

He basically hears free agent rumors and then connects the dots and speed stories like this that are likely going to happen as if he heard it from inside sources.

When the story doesn't pan out he just fades away.
