Breaking Down The Ryan Kalil Signing


Recommended Posts

JetNation Presents: NY Jets Video

Chris Gardella is back and this time he is breaking down the big news of the week; Joe Douglas went out and brought in center Ryan Kalil. Mike Maccagnan wasn’t able to bring in any of the free agent centers. He also skipped on center completely during the NFL draft.

The deal isn’t without risk, Kalil has an injury history the past few seasons. He did play the entire year last year but PFF had him ranked as the 16th of 38 centers. The Jets are certainly hoping he can make it through the season without injury. They have to set expectations accordingly. They are not getting the pro bowl player but if he can help Darnold and Le’Veon Bell this move makes a ton of sense.

Chris also looks at the rest of the offensive line and discusses the impact this move could have on everyone else. When evaluating this move, the big question is what could the Jets have done with this 8 million + dollars if they didn’t spent it on Kalil? 

Watch below to find out!

Damn can't watch video right but I'm dying to know what we could have used that money for if not used on this guy!!??!!?

 

My guess...um not a whole lot.

The first name he brings up in Mo Claiborne. Who is currently facing a 4 game suspension .

I'm interested in how people would rank our 5 starting OLinemen right now.  I have the two guys acquired via trade and FA, Osemele and Kalil, at the top even though they're both aging guys who have some question marks based on recent performance...

1. K. Osemele

2. Ryan Kalil

3. Kelvin Beachum

4. Brian Winters

5. Brandon Shell

It's a sad commentary on the OLine that these two guys acquired relatively cheaply (a swap of late Draft picks for one, $8M for the other) are probably the best OLinemen we have.

you mean it's a sad commentary on mac as a gm.  true enough they are thin on the oline but this has been going on for quite sometime.  lets hope that guy from usc doesn't turn out to be another diamond in the rough reach by mac the same way polite is heading.
