Who was the kid who injured his Achilles in the preseason during the Rex years? D lineman .  Maybe 2010

Great name.  Not great player.

Joe Thuney and Corey Linsley is *not* a one or the other proposition for the Jets. If Thuney were to accept the Jets offer, they would still be interested in Linsley 👀

NY Jets sign Sheldon Rankins: How he'll fit in the defense and does the move make sense?

Andy Vasquez
NFL writer
Former Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins has agreed to sign a two-year contract with the Jets, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. Rankins, a former first round pick who turns 27 next month, can make up to $17 million in the deal. 

The agreement and contract details were first reported by NFL Network. 

This is an interesting signing for the Jets, who already added pass rusher Carl Lawson in free agency and have a rising star in defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. With Rankins in the fold, the Jets have the potential to be one of the better defensive fronts in football next season.

Hopefully this entire draft is devoted to offense with a CB thrown in

Exactly this. Other than CB, this year's draft is weighted heavily with offensive talent.

I'll say this: their NASCAR package, with Lawson, Q, and Rankins, could give opposing OLs fits. A 4th passrusher would really be nice (Franklin Meyers at edge in that look doesn't quite do it for me) but you can't double both Q and Rankins on the interior (C can only help on one of the two) and Rankins is a very good pass rusher against single man blocking, so this move makes a lot of sense. At the end of the day, if offenses have to assign 5 to block 3 (OT & TE/RB on Lawson, C/G on Quinnen, G on Rankins) the Jets will suddenly have a numerical advantage they've flat out been missing for the past decade

nobody is trading up to get Sewell, so you can move on from that thought.

Sewell is the 2nd best player in this draft. He's going to look great in a Jets uniform.

Like JD had stated many times - starting with his opening press conference. Build the foundation from the OL and DL out and impose your will on the other team.

Jarred Davis, Corey Davis, Sheldon rankins - all first rounders on essentially 2nd contracts. I like it.

guy I’m most excited for is Carl Lawson- I think he’s going to outplay his contract.

How did you hack into this thread? This is 100% positive.😃

Our franchise has been criminally mismanaged, especially and specifically on Offense, for literally decades, with only brief exception.

 

It is interesting.  While you and I have different viewpoints on the QB, we come to a similar place on the GM.

Many on the board are apoplectic that we have not improved the offensive line with veterans.  I have defended this approach by claiming that the plan is to build the team through the draft.  That that so much needed repair last year that we could not rebuild the entire line and that this year we will compete the job.  Douglas needs to add interior lineman in the draft.  I would also take Sewell if we cannot trade down because he is a sure thing. 

He added wide receivers to avoid Crowder playing outside and I think that is key.

Many others want one of the also ran QBs.  Watch out, that quick fix light at the end of the tunnel might be an oncoming train.  I think Douglas is too smart for that but we shall see.

JDs methods are not for a 1 year fix. He's doing his way and he obviously doesn't give a sh1t what twitter and messageboards think.  His way will be more sustainable, rather than a mccagnan type shoot your load type of offseason.  Everyone needs to get over it. 

I'm in. 

 

Me too.  It is why I am aboard the Sewell train (if we cannot trade back).  All aboard.

He cannot miss.

Aw crap.  Hide this video from JD.

He might call Minnesota trying to trade for that Center.

He already sign him, that our buddy Pat Elflein...

My view on Sam Darnold has not changed. 

How can anyone tell?  From the bad snaps, to the matador blocking, eight man fronts, indisputably poor quality at wideout

Josh Malone and Chris Hogan would like a word with you young man

Right now, the Jets are tied for 1st place.  

Ah, a veteran Jet fan.  It is remarkable how we recognize each other. 

I say that at the beginning of each season.  I also note that we are in line for the top seed in the playoffs too.

I have my concerns with JD but as you said he inherited a mess and while I've been critical of his draft, I am curious to see what a real offseason with new coaching can do for the class.  That said,  baring some amazing breakout, he probably screwed up a great opportunity to build a foundation by missing out on some solid OL/WR prospects in the mid rounds seemingly going away from the strength and depth of the draft yet trading back in the process.  It was confusing.  And then now, to have what again seemed wise saving cap space for a year where money is tight, he's still going for 2nd/3rd rate FA's and 1 year deals.

So again, I dont see the vision but who knows, maybe he goes off in the draft and the new coaching/system will be all it takes to get the foundation in place.  Just seems like a tall order and like you said, it feels like you almost have to hit on every pick.

 

I agree that we should have loaded up on young interior lineman last year.  The "guard only" guys with starting grades were there all the way into the sixth.

As for wideout, that deep class was picked clean early.  The late round guys who look good were needles in the haystack.  For every good player, there were several non-factors.   The wide receivers with starting grades were almost gone when we took Mims.  Six went in the first and seven in the second.  I could understand the criticism had this not been the case but the NFL tore into that wideout class like savages.
