Too old. A player that age will be going to a contender, not one in perpetual rebuild mode.

Old for a CB. When our rebuild is complete (hypothetically if all goes well) he’ll be 31-32 and burnt.

We aren’t giving up draft capital and cap space on Slay.

IMO - we should let GW work with the scraps he has for now. Our defense was fine last year and that was with a bunch of injuries. He got the most out of Austin and Maulet. 

This team needs to focus very heavily, almost all it's resources, on building around a potential franchise QB. Trading away valuable resources and spending cap space on a 30 year old corner would be the antithesis of that. Wouldn't mind if the entire draft were offensive players tbh.

I agree with IF they believe in Bless Austin,Mauraice Candy,Ausitn,Arthur Maulet.

CB is a position in the secondary where you should actually spend money...but not here. He'd be a solid player, but giving up what seems like to be a high draft pick and a FA contract is too much when you can get a better return on resources.

Wow.. Holy frickin' Jesus!!! 

Hold on...same old Jets fans!!! 

It says he's available for trade correct? He didn't have the greatest year correct? There are no reported terms or compensation or reported money involved correct? So let's slow down.

Maybe he's got something to prove? Maybe throw them Henry Anderson...Maybe Avery Williamson and exchange third or fourth round picks then give him a two-year contract?

 Trumaine Johnson/ Darryl Roberts are gone... and Brian Poole is a free agent!

Obviously we need to re-sign Poole as he was one of our best players last year, but despite kudos to All The Underdogs that played in the secondary last year none of them solidified even being a number 2 cornerback.

This guy is actually a pretty good player in any scheme. Not Elite..but good. If I remember correctly Darius Slay was one of the popular guys Talking Heads were saying we should go after last year? Yes! Last offseason remember? 

Yes I understand he's a 29 years old,  he's not 35 years old and He's good not great I get that too.

I'd take him over Darrell Roberts and his 7 million a year when he couldn't swing his head around ever..and only one good tackle all year! Trumaine Johnson sucked such a dick last year  it was embarrassing....

We are definitely going offensive line and wide receiver in the draft, but we have no idea what's happening with Jamal Adams, Robby Anderson, Avery Williamson, Bell or Mosley. And Roberts and Johnson at CB are definitely gone!

So before we start crapping on any idea of getting some help in the secondary let's see what the terms are and be realistic. It sounds to me we may just be able to cut or trade a few players and when that money is available, get some help where it's definitely going to be needed.

Big difference between a 24 year old all-pro who hasn't even hit his prime yet and a 29 year old whose team wants to walk away from for whatever scraps they can get.

Every thread doesn't have to be about our president.

If the conversation is about resources and where to direct them, its impossible not to include Jamal in that discussion.

Like @joewilly12, Jamal would make a great GM with no salary cap and half a dozen first round picks every year.

Trade for this beast. 

You don't trade for a player that is at the end of a contract wanting a huge payday from the team that trades for him... It always turns out bad... Plus you are giving up Capital for a player that you are going to have to give him huge FA money... give me a break... thats what bad teams do

Wanna bet this team would be better off with me or many others here being the GM the last 10 years.

I would bet against you with the sum total of my alleged wealth. I'd get crappy odds, but that's how it is with sure things. 

I'd place modest sums on a couple other guys here to do a better job than we've seen around here, though.

Your opinion.

Your wealth please not another SAR I. 

I know for a fact I could have done a better job.

I clearly typed the word "alleged" in front of the word "wealth." Look it up, you hear it a lot on Law & Order.

Which begs the question: What would a joewilly franchise look like? My first assumption is that team lunches would now be comprised of various Campbells soup flavors.

Factually speaking we all have opinions on players and how they would be as NY Jets players and how they would help the team succeed. 

No one is perfect not even the GM's,talent scouts, draft experts we all make mistakes. 

But over the years I have and many others commented on our opinions of many players free agents or the draft who have turned out better off than the trash we have signed and drafted. 

I don't bet on the NY Jets never have and never will.

This reminds me of that time John Cougar called himself one of America's great song writers along with Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

Sign a good (but maybe not great) CB in free agency. Draft another in the 3rd or 4th round, keep developing guys like Bless Austin, Arthur Maulet, etc.  We can piece together a secondary that's slightly improved over 2019 and improve the overall D by getting a solid Edge rusher.  I would prioritize the Edge rusher in FA (or via trade) rather than the CB position.  In Gregg Williams I trust.
