Our second round pick last year was on pace to have a better year than Kirk with Mike White, Joe Flacco and Zach Wilson throwing the ball. 




And Kirk had a better year than Cooper. So Moore was on pace to have a better season than Cooper as well.  The Cooper infatuation on this board was irrational.

Wow - hadn't heard about that . Wonder how Jax will field a 53 man roster. they better pray one of the big contract boys doesn't get hurt during the season.

They are definitely aggressive and resetting the market.  I prefer JD's value based approach as long as he is aggressive when the need calls for it.  Not sure that is what happened with a couple of the Jaguar signings, feels like the GM smoked a little crack right before free agency negotiating window opened.

Revisiting the last couple of years on contracts over $5M per year, rather than going full narrative that JD sucks and/or is super conservative.  You can draw your own conclusions.  Overall I give him a B/B-.

1. Hit on Fant and McGovern, based on 2021 results.  Fant's contract at LT looks like a steal while McGovern's is spot on as a top 10 center

2. Looked like a potentially big hit on Lawson before injury

3. Disappointing early returns on Corey Davis but hopeful he rebounds.  Frankly, if he regains a very solid #2 WR status, his 3 year $37.5M deal looks reasonable based on this year's market.  There was hope he might be a #1 but the contract doesn't really scream #1 and has an exit after this year

4. Hedged bets that former first round picks J Davis and S Rankins would be better fits for the Jets than the Lions and Saints.  Didn't pay off but both will be gone (yes Rankins too) after 1 year with minimal dead money 

Sidenote: Meh on GVR but not a big contract at $3.5M per year.  Kind of got what he paid for, a marginal short term starter at a time in the rebuild where it might not have made sense to sign a guy like Tomlinson

I do think we are now at the point in the rebuild to be more aggressive and to spend close to the cap, if the value is there.

Meanwhile, Mekhi Becton has some input 


oh gawd!

Can't wait to see what spews out of that account now.  Gas mask photo like Laremy Tunsil?  Becton passed out in a McDonald's Drive-thru lane?


refreshing the twitter like a madman right now. lol

The Jets can still cut a few players, but I don't know how they let Rankins go.  

If Christian Kirk makes $17mm how do you not use 4 on the best WR available. 

Just wait until CB JC Jackson gets his deal.

Then we'll be all-in on Sauce Gardner at #4 and a WR (even if it's the second best WR) at #10.
