DT Folorunso Fatukasi Placed On Covid List


Recommended Posts

this is a guy that we should keep and help build our team around. Good player playing hard. in years past he woul dbe a goner...it will be interesting to see this upcomign off season and who Joe D keeps around. Coaching staff aside I am very interested in our teams roster. 

The right way to build is to keep young players that can grow and get rid of underperforming guys with big contracts. People like Jenkins last year was a great sign because his play didnt warrant the big contacts. We kept him but on team friendly deal. We cna cut bait or sign to another team friendly deal, but i would imagine Joe parts ways wiht him after this year and gets younger...

time will tell but there is a numebr of bright spots on the roster i hope that we manage to keep some.

Folorunso Fatukasi

Brian Costello of the NY Post pointed out that Folorunso Fatukasi has been placed on the Covid-19 list. That means he will miss the game against the Rams on Sunday.

Fatukasi is being placed on the COVID list because he had a close contact with someone outside the organization. #nyj

Fatukasi is also under contract for only $950K next year and should provide a great example to see if JD looks at players like him differently then Mac did.

Foley is 25 years old and should absolutely be approached about an extension this offseason. Theres simply no reason to allow him to hit FA and have his contract bid up when you could allow him to take some risk off the table, sign long term here and the Jets can front load cash to allow more flexibility down the road.

We needed this for one of the other two games.  I don’t think was any chance to win this one. 

Agreed. We could start our “starters” and still get our arses kicked. This will be a shutout
