Maybe we can pontificate for the next year on why brown got 2 years and what the means for Fant / Mitchell....🤪

So next year we're not faced with the same dilemma trying to find a back up T.

If Mitchell grows - he can start.  If not they can draft another T or sign a high ticket FA - or if they let Fant walk etc.. 

Ultimately having Brown next year gives the Jet far more options.

 if JD gave Moses a bit more money and got a two year deal he would be in better shape right now.

I don't know how to do the fancy tweety posty thing..

But FWIW. Connor tweeted that brown had choices with playoff contenders and chose the jets.... he said he thinks it says a lot about Saleh's culture. 

The Jets are a playoff contender.

Should’ve signed him sooner (could’ve signed him to a less expensive deal months ago), but better late than never. 

Wonder how this will affect negotiations with Fant. He’s going to want a bigger contract than what Brown just got. 

OT will be a priority for next year’s draft regardless.

Yeah, Connor Hughes is a very negative beat writer. 

The Jets are absolutely a playoff contender.  With Brown being here - it'll really come down to two things - Health and ZW.  But if they stay healthy and ZW takes a solid step (not massive) the Jets will absolutely be in the playoff mix in Dec.

Worthless to bring up PFF stats with Brown last year:

- First of all Wilson missed a ton of games and was replaced by Smith (that will affect sack numbers)

- Second, did SEA run the same blocking scheme that we do.  How did that affect his sack numbers

Agree with PFF and point one.

Point 2 - pass blocking is fairly uniform.  Zone blocking is for the run game.

It’s a pivotal year for our young franchise QB.

And I sure as sh*t don’t want to see Chuma Edoga as an opening day starter.

Who cares what they spent to make it happen? It’s not coming out of my pocket.

nothing but quite the different tune all of a sudden

Interesting to note it's a 2 year deal. Wonder about the details of that and if Jets have an out after this year or if Brown will compete for a starting spot in 2023 as well.

Was probably a condition for him to sign. Wonder how much he is being paid.

Is this a Joe Douglas "2 year deal that we can cut the player after 1 year w/o any penalty" deal?

That would be beautiful!

Doubtful, as they had less than $9M in cap space before this signing. More likely that he’s just on the roster next year. Whether as a starter or backup will remain to be seen.

22 mil for a 37 year old.....

Imagine if Mac had done this....lol

You guys really do have JD sunglasses on

JD has earned trust.

It's a lot of money but the multi-billion dollar Jets organization all depends on whether Zach Wilson gets shell-shocked. 

Do everything to protect the young QB.

Indeed. Jets thought they needed a veteran backup Tackle before Becton got hurt, so they still need a veteran backup Tackle now.

I'd bring in Shell too, who has played both sides at times in the NFL. He's at least low-tier starter calibre, which Edoga and McDermott absolutely are not.

They brought in 2

It will be interesting who plays right or left.  I always kind of thought of Fant more as an LT than RT, but Brown certainly has the better CV.  They played together in Seattle and I think Seattle traded for Brown the year that Fant got hurt in camp (2017).  The last time Brown missed any time, it was Fant that took his spot. 

From a continuation standpoint there are positives to keeping Fant at LT, but maybe not as much as we are initially thinking.  I think that they started last season with Becton at LT and AVT at LG.  With Tomlinson they will be flipping AVT to RG, so if Fant is that one that moves, he will be moving but staying next to AVT.  On the other hand, that will mean that 4 of the 5 positions will be different than last season and I think we all know how long it took for everybody to mesh.    

Should be interesting.

This is a huge UPGRADE. I love that it’s a 2 year deal. Dude is a pro bowler. If you’re complaining about the 22 million who cares seriously. Not our money. JD not being cheap, knows he has to protect ZW. I absolutely love this move.

There is a close to zero chance JD gets fired after this year - regardless of the record.  He is the first GM this team has had that has shown even a basic level of competence in over a decade.  

JD isn't going anywhere for quite some time and nor should he.

I strongly disagree. 

If this team tanks again this year, the media will turn on JD and Woody (who was off in England when he was hired) will feel pressure to make a change. I wouldn't guarantee that JD gets fired in such a scenario, but the possibility is nowhere near zero, IMO.

It takes two to tango.  Brown likely wanted to sign with a team that was going to give him a realistic chance to start.

Jets couldn't offer that until Becton went down.

I watched a bunch of Seahawks games last year because it was fun to root against them and what I noticed is Wilson held onto the ball way too long and ran around in circles a lot.....  I wonder if that had anything to do with Browns numbers being so bad.

I don't think either Benenoch or Glaser are worthy of a roster spot. Can't see either of them as legit options as the 3rd Tackle.

Over McDermott possibly. Especially if the injury lingers.

This. No matter the reason, 4 wins ( and probably 5) will require firings just to keep the wolves at bay.
