Are the Jets sending a message to Darnold with the Morgan pick?

I’m shocked they invested a 4th on a QB given all the holes on the roster. That said perhaps they think brining in Morgan will light a fire under Sam. 

I dont know what's worse than youre shocked we invested in a backup QB or that you think trying to develop a backup QB means we're sending a message to anyone

Love this pick.  This is cap related.  We didn't have the money for a high end backup without sacrificing a lot of things (not just this year but next year), and qbs are amongst the most expensive positions in football. 

 

I don’t “love” the pick but the way it will help the cap is important to this team. JD seems like he’ll always use a lot of cap on plenty of value free agents which is fine by me. No big ticket free agents.

Bingo. Josh mccown got $10 million one year for us. Morgan is pennies on the dollar IF he pans out for a long time. 

They were saying the same thing about Jalen Hurts going to the Eagles. It's not an indictment on Wentz (although a little about his injury history), it's about beefing up the most  important position on your team with cheap talent.

Is the message stronger than spending their first rounder on the finishing touch of the rebuild of his offensive line ...?
