Jets spending heavily on OLine in 2019?

Recommended Posts

Still need updates on several contracts including CJ Mosely, Henry Anderson, Jamison Crowder but Spotrac shows a Jets roster consuming quite a bit of $$$ on the Offensive Line....

One metric that GMs look at is how much they're spending on each position group (Secondary, Linebackers, DLine, WRs, etc.) and the money currently invested in the OLine could be a reason why Macc wasn't willing to go to $10M per year on a Center (Paradis) coming off an injury.

When you don’t draft Olineman before the 6 round like 99% of other teams who have few on rookie deals, you spend ?‍♂️?

This just really feels like the year to infuse some youth at either Center, LT or both.  There seem to be 2-3 Centers worthy of a pick in either the 2nd or 3rd round....the Jets need to get into that 2nd round one way or another (trade back from #3 in Round 1 or trade up with one of their picks in Round 3).

Beachum should not be making that much. At least i dont think he should. 

Welcome to the wonderful world of Left tackles. Even very average ones make ~10M a year.  Heck, look at the QA position where even bad-average QA, like Cousins, Bradford, Tannehill, Brock boy are making tens of millions per year to go out and lose much more than they win. That's rediculous since the wins these guys do get most times the other players on the team along with a 3rd string QB making 1-2M a year would also get.

But the opposite may also happen; as an example the Cowboys.  They have 3 1st rounders, 1 2nd rounder and a UDFA on their OL which they total $52M.  When Dak and Zeke get their second contracts, 7 players will take up nearly 50% of the cap.  Along with Lawerence and Cooper, both due for contracts next year, it'll be over 60% of their cap on 9 players.  

By contrast, the Jets will have approximately 50% of cap space in 10 players and 60% by 14 players.  That's on a team bad at drafting and spends heavily in free agency. 

There needs to be a balance of finding quality starters throughout the draft and as UDFA.

This is kind of a random measurement. 

Last season the Jets were 10th spend on OL for a meh OL, because 4/5 of their starters, plus some reserves, were higher priced FAs.  

The great OL of 2009-10 had 2 high draft picks and a UDFA, so my guess is that it was not the most expensive.  It got there when Brick, Mangold and Moore got new contracts.  

So basically, you spend on the position group that you don’t draft well for.

The challenge with the Jets seems to be not that they don't draft "well" but that they don't really draft at all for the group.  Shell was a 5th rounder and everyone else was acquired either prior to Macc (Winters in 2013 3rd round) or through Trade or FA.

It's time use a pick in the first 3 rounds on OLine again.  A center like Elgton Jenkins or Bradbury would be nice IMO.

I may fall off my chair If mac actually uses a 3rd round pick on OL

What do the Jets draft well for?  TE and S now?  Punter?  They bombed OL (for lack of picks, Shell was a solid pick), RB, WR, DL-TBD after Leo, LB-meh, CB-meh.  

Even if Mac and Gase really don't believe in drafting OL high, they should spend the two 3rd round picks on the best OL they can find, unless there is a compelling reason not to.

Like bitonti said, they will probablt draft allen, then a reach cb and te in the 3rd.

25 million for 4 starting lineman. Is that considered unreasonable? 

No, not when it has been proven out that with the new rules in the NFL (specifically on defending the pass) that an extra 1-2 seconds of time for the QB = obscene offensive production.

Trade Lee for some pick(s)

I’d love to see the Jets trade down and draft a Center and LT like we did with Mangold and Ferguson back in 2006.  Right now both positions are awful.  

Agreed. Or i would be happy with trading down and grabbing a top TE and center. I know a lot of people want to look at the wr prospects, but none of them give me that WR1 vibe. Next year’s skill position class, especially WR, is the one to target. Jeudy, Collin Johnson, tee Higgins, those are wr1 potential guys
