Jets Fans Less Than Thrilled WIth Ruggs Rumor

Recommended Posts

It’s the start of the NFL’s “lying season”, a time at which the NFL draft is coming closer, the combine is under way, and you can’t believe a word you hear.  “Inside info” will be leaked from executives to insiders that’s more likely being leaked to prompt a response or reaction from another team.   It seems there may be a case of this already with the Jets, and it seems fans are hoping it’s a lie.

Jets beat writer Rich Cimini claims here that the Jets have had their eye on Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III “for a while”, meaning that if the Jets nabbed a player who is believed to be the fastest in the country, they’d be passing on the top tackle still on the board.

Would taking Henry Ruggs over a top OT be a wise decision?

We asked Jets fans how they’d fell and it’s fair to say that such a move would be unpopular as over 90% of those in our poll said that the move would not be a wise one.  Alex Varallo of JetNation Radio also chimed in.

I think Henry Ruggs is great…I REPEAT an awesome prospect but lets remember from Cincy when they took John Ross and when Jacksonville took DJ Chark b/c they were fast.

#Jets need to protect Sam so let’s entertain this idea once Free Agency signings have completed 😎✌🏽

There’s no denying that a player like Ruggs would bring quite the electric element to the Jets offense, but the consensus appears to be that protecting Darnold should be priority number one.  Is this posturing by the Jets to entice a team to make a deal, or is the first big rumor of the offseason legitimate?

Well, Ruggs would look great running down the field with blazing 4.28 speed and executing the perfect route to be open for an easy 65 yard touchdown........as he looked back at Sam Darnold sitting on his ass after gettin sacked.

I don’t think any NYJ fan would be mad about adding this guy, but adding him over an OT (if one is there) is just a bad move

Generally agree but let's chill. It could be a false rumor to get some other teams to trade up. It could be a plan if we somehow trade down. It could just be totally false. These rumors in February are worth nothing. Go back to prior years and look at some rumors floating around, utter nonsense

Great, let's celebrate the 40th anniversary of Lam Jones over Anthony Munoz. Worked great then.

Well one thing I totally do not understand about the article is the comment about DJ Chark as if that was a bad pick by jax.

61st overall 2nd rounder and he produces 73 catches, 1000 yards and 8 tds last year.

Ruggs is going to get over drafted, hopefully not by the jets.
