CB is the one position i am very happy with right now.  let the kids play!

I can't wait for half the board to criticize JD for not being able to sign Gilmore. He's 31 years old, he's going to sign with a contender.

And our D is playing well. We're trying to develop a team, a secondary of young kids.  Taking snaps away from those kids isnt the plan.  Its the opposite to that plan

My first reaction is obviously "sign this beast" but I have to think there's more to this for the Pats to just release him. Something is going on. Maybe he just wants to go play with Brady in Tampa.

 

They couldn't  agree on a contract. It isn't  so eyebrow raising. The Pats are rebuilding for the next 2 or 3 seasons.

Can we all agree that whether or not JD signs him it is a mistake and we should fire JD? :-)

Looks like more Pats are bailing - rats off of a sinking ship ... 

Unfortunately, that secondary is playing pretty well even without him. Surprised he is being let go; the defense is the one positive on that team and adding a healthy Gilmore would make them better.

The Pats spent a lot during in the free agent frenzy period last March. Is that what rebuilding teams do?

Bucs secondary is beat up.  Bucs by the end of the week…

Hes the perfect remedy for having to put Sherman out on the field

It would be a departure  from how JD has managed  the personnel  and cap if he was to sign Gilmore. If he was in his mid 20's, I would think he would kick the tires on this but I don't  see him paying top CB money for a guy this old. I think the pass rush also might be good enough that we won't  need top tier DB's.

If you are the Jets, no. We have a GM that believes  in building through the draft.  If you are the Pats and the GM is BB who believes he can coach these players to get a lot out of them, then yes.

Jets young CBs are playing well.

Gilmore is a great CB, but getting up in years, will want a gazillion dollars and to play for a contender.

We're not signing him.

Yet a couple of JD's free agent signings, George Fant and Corey Davis, are making the first two picks of the Jets 2020 draft irrelevant. Remember when the Jets were being mentioned as a landing spot for Richard Sherman? I never was on board with that. Getting Gilmore and you don't have to give anything up for him makes it enticing for  even JD. Culture changes with great players, not great slogans.

The “more” is the fact that he wants lots more money.  
 

I don’t see the Jets moving on this.  They’re not a $20 million CB away from competing. 

If they were going to spend big money, it should be to shore up the O-line.

Jets actually started the "no vets at CB" trend lol

More like they perfected it.  It’s working

George Fant doing a decent job at filling in for Becton is not making Becton irrelevant. Corey Davis isn't making Mims irrelevant. Mims not picking up the system is making Mims irrelevant. Building through the draft doesn't mean you don't also sign free agents, and it also doesn't mean that you ONLY play your drafted players.

Yes he is. Why? The best ability is availability. Becton will never last a full season unless he drastically changes his body.

What's the current waiver wire order? Is it based on the teams records right now?

It is, yes.

Doesn't matter in Gilmore's case though - he's a vested veteran, so doesn't have to pass through waivers.
