They hord money and draft picks like they are managing their kids 529 account when in reality the money belongs to the guy they swear they hate, Woody Johnson, and draft picks outside of 2022 have done very little to ever help this franchise. Remmeber how we spent 2 years teraring down and tanking to get Zach. Yes that was smart. So here is why we should 100 percent "mortgage the future" 1) The Jets have a top 5 defense. The window on that type of defense is 2-3 years usually looking around the league. Defense is important, and more important in late season and playoff football. You can't underestimate this. 2) Breece Hall, Garret Wilson year 2. Elijiah Moore year 3. Uzomah waiting to be unleashed. This offsense has weapons and CAN score with competent QB play, let alone star QB play a guy like Rodgers would provide. 3) Contracts. All this rookie and 2nd year talent will be asking for extensions come 24 and 25. We simply will not be able to pay them all. OUR WINDOW IS NOW 4) The Jets arent rebuilding anymore, they are in execution phase. Losing a first rounder this year or in 24 is not a game changer or hurt the chances moving forward. If JD is all we may or you make him out to be he should be able to find starters in round 2-3 and depth beyond. The Jets need to be aggresive and absolutly mortgage the future. A Superbowl, a deep playoff run will bring legitimacy to this team and the rest will take care of itself. YES NOW IS THE TIME TO GO TO THE BANK AND ASK FOR THAT MORTGAGE. Our franchise depends upon it. So, mortgaging the future CAN be bad. HOWEVER, if we are talking Rogers, here is my two cents worth: 1) IF we were to get him, Garrett Wilson, Elijah Moore, Denzel Mimes, Tyler Conklin, C.J. Uzomah, Jeremy Ruckert, Breece Hall, Michael Carter, and Ty Johnson SHOULD be enough weapons for Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers actually hasn't had that quality depth in a long time. 2) The defense needs to resign Quincy Williams, Sheldon Rankins, Kwon Alexander, and Bryce Huff. Possibly find a replacement for Whitehead and Carl Lawson while they are at it. 3) They need to resign Greg Zuerlein for special teams, and then Nate Herbig, Cedric Ogbuehi, and a centre. 4) The only thing missing for an offense led by Aaron Rodgers would be the O-line. AVT should be back fine, maybe Tomlinson snaps back. But we have no starting center, no center depth, and nothing for an LT or an RT. 5) IF he could pull it off, I would offer the second pick this year and keep the first for an OT. We HAVE to draft one. TOO many question marks. Then, I would possibly offer 2024 1st AND a 2025 1st WITH contract stipulations for success (depending on how far we get into the playoffs). But I honestly think it would be a waste if we do not address at least one tackle position with a first round pick this year. There is no guarantee Duane Brown can/will play, and there is no guarantee Mekhi Becton can be counted on for anything. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
