What do believe is the best roster addition Joe Douglas has made as the GM with the Jets?

This is an easy question. Only one has really done anything. Becton.

Obviously hoping soon my answer to this question will be Zach Wilson.

Of all the off-season activities (or lack thereof), this is what bothers me the most.   Still don't understand how Minshew is not our backup.   Would have been great insurance should Zack get injured or struggle.  Minshew has proven that he can put up TDs in the NFL. 

I don't get it. But what do I know. If I was GM Tannehill would be our QB and Trubisky would be backing him up. Probably still would've offered a 6th for Minshew.

Two things...

1) I think they are obligated to keep Morgan for at least 3 weeks so no chance he ends up with Pats before Week 2.

2) We might be guilty of same thing as we claimed David Moore from Carolina a few weeks ago.

The 3 weeks thing is if you sign someone from another team's practice squad. That doesn't apply to Morgan, who was a free agent after he cleared waivers.  The Panthers could cut him today, if they wanted to.

And now it’s official 

 

CHARLOTTE — The Panthers made some changes to the practice squad Thursday afternoon.

The Panthers signed quarterback James Morgan.

A former fourth-round pick of the Jets from Florida International, he gives them a third quarterback for practice behind starter Sam Darnold and backup P.J. Walker.

I do not believe that is the case.  He was waived and signed straight to their practice squad.  I think the 3 week requirement is for players being poached from a team's practice squad.  IIRC, those players are required to be carried on the 53 for 3 weeks.
