Would've loved him but @ 28 he's getting up there in age (for a CB) and JD believes in the youth movement but I still would've liked to kick the tires because what's the worst that could've happened? He disappointed before immediately benching him and still going with the youth movement? 

Eagles just upgraded.

have some optimism for the offense this year accepting there will be growing pains - the defense however probably will be a disaster on the back end. unless the pass rush is ferocious and top level effective on every passing down it’s going to be a long year for the d

The Jets are building a whole new thing. It’s not a rebuild, it’s foundational. They’re gonna get the kids on the field at CB, LB, WR and see what they have. They’re not in the rush some fans are, they’re trying to do it the right way. In this defense, that means a different breed of CB. 

No rush here been waiting 52 years and counting......................

Remarkable how people on here always saying we should offer this and that for said player only to see said player sign for much less. It's like people here still have the mentality that we need to overpay to have people come here and JD refuses to do that. I remember the number 10 mil being bandied about for this guy. JD will pay market value (or less) but not overpay for players to come to the Jets.

People on this board need to get used to it.

What does that mean? Doing it the right way is apparently having a bunch of unknowns with no starting experience at a very important position.

We may be in a rush but thats not how you should build a team to last.  Thats the JD plan, not getting the cb who's name you've read.  Especially when he doesnt really fit their D

You really need to look at what they've done at most positions instead of saying something like this.  Its exactly what @slats was saying when he said "They’re not in the rush some fans are, they’re trying to do it the right way. In this defense, that means a different breed of CB. "

Deal with the fact that Saleh/Ulbrich are going young at CB.  We'll
see who steps up, remember Trumaine Johnson was a "big name" how did
that work out?

Id rather see the youth movement at CB.I was big on Bless Austin he did alright. Add in a legitimate pass rush and the secondary instantly improves.

I can't stand these types of arguments. Just because Trumaine Johnson busted has nothing to do with other NFL players. 

That's like me saying because Sanchez and Sam busted we should hold it against Zach Wilson and/or just because Fant busted as a FA we shouldn't have signed Morgan Moses etc. 

I'm not upset at all about not landing Nelson but I can't comprehend how Trumaine has anything to do with Nelson (or any other player) especially since Nelson is a 1 year rental and Johnson was a poison contract...

Exactly. We want CB's that CANT cover. Nelson does not fit that scheme.

I know it is a concept that has not been seen with this team in a very long time but it would appear the coaching staff plans to coach players into being better players. Ya know, teaching.

Understood,,,but that doesn't mean bringing 1 veteran free agent to add with the teaching isn't such a bad idea .

True, but that is because they have been continuously slapping lipstick on a pig. The exception being early parcels with the jets.

That's fine but how does signing a 28 year CB to a 1 year deal hurt this foundational rebuild?

I'm not stressing over it but the people on here acting like we shouldn't have signed him are just being homers.  1yr 4mil while we sit on 25 mil in cap and 70+ mil next year? I get the frustration in some

Richard Sherman was a fifth round pick. This defense looks for different traits than traditional press/man CBs, and they drafted a few and want to see what they have in a foundational year. It’s the smart move in a year when you’re not expecting to contend. Develop what you have by getting them on the field, supplement next year when you have a better idea of what you have and where you’re going. 


They legit have no experience at their top 3 corners. You want to experiment with youth at off ball linebacker? Fine. But there is literally nothing there and it’s not like some of these guys went for a ton of money. I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt, because they haven’t proved that they can’t develop corners, but I’m very concerned.

This D is all about the DL and not the CBs being left on an island

Their two starters literally started for us last year. Young yes but it’s not as if we’re relying on street FAs
