football guy Posted March 6 Share Posted March 6 While Jet fans sit on pins & needles anxiously waiting for Aaron Rodgers to make a decision, the free agency tampering period begins a week from today. The Jets probably won't be nearly as active as they have been in year's past; they're expected to make a couple of savvy moves but the focus is all about the QB (whether it be Rodgers via trade or Garoppolo in FA). Figure we can use this thread to post news and share rumors. One thing that interests me: Orlando Brown will not be tagged. FWIW I don't expect the Jets to sign him, but I do find it interesting that he will make it to free agency because many expected him to be tagged absent an extension. The Jets want to add a "blue chip" talent on the OL this offseason, and while I've been under the impression that it would happen during the draft, I wonder if Joe Douglas will pivot if a guy like him actually hits the open market. Otherwise, from what I understand most of the moves will be less significant. They do expect to know about Aaron before the tampering period begins. If he's coming here, a lot of the moves will be centered around some of his preferences (i.e. Allen Lazard). As Saleh said, they want to retain most of their defenders but I think they will look into signing a Joyner replacement. I would expect them to sniff around on Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, Jessie Bates, and Jordan Poyer but more likely they will look into cheaper options. Think Jimmie Ward, Taylor Rapp, Julian Love, Adrian Amos tier. If they price themselves out I think they will be comfortable waiting to see what falls to them in the draft. Expect them to add some depth at DT with Fletcher Cox as a possibility. Otherwise it'll be more low profile moves along the OL and possibly depth at RB. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
