Cimini: Jets Offensive Lineman Generating Trade Interest

Huff played 16% snaps in 2022.  He was the same player as he is this year and they just drafted McD who will need some of those snaps.  They are playing the comp game with Huff which mean tops 4th rounder who prob wont meaningfully contribute until 2025?  The WR group is dangerously thin in what should be win-now team.  If they can get a high floor WR instead of non-guaranteed comp pick that may have high ceiling they should do it.

Except he is NOT the same player as last year. He is clearly better at finishing sacks, setting an edge and against the run. Again he is our BEST edge, not just a good player.

The real question is whether we are keeping them all. If we were going to release him anyway, might as well get something for him.

Might just be my perception of JD but he respects veterans. Believe he would try to accommodate a player sending him to a preferred team.

I've mentioned this before, but every time I key on the OL and try to focus on a certain player, Colon stands out.  He's a solid versatile vet who just seems to do the right thing every snap.  He might not be amazing but just does things the right way and I will say, any time I watch a run play, he's always down field looking for an extra block, the guy can move.  I'd rather keep that type of player as depth during an all in year.

Does anyone know yet what the offers might be?  6th or 7th, no but 4th or 5th might be tempting.

While I like Bryce, we can't hold all of our DL and anyone we release will likely get picked up. If we have the depth, I would trade Bryce for a qualify pick next year. We probably Cann't afford to sign him next year anyway. But, I am also glad he is staying.

You're not wrong. I would put a pretty high trade price on Huff though. Getting off the field on 3rd down is a pretty significant part of winning and Huff is so good at that when he's out there.

I don't. I have always wondered if the Jets could package a couple of players..So in this case say Colon & Bam for maybe a 4th.

I know you need a team that needs the two players and has room on their roster for the two players..Just an idea..

i dont think the jets agree with you.  If they thought he was their best player they would not have risked so much injury on him.

Agreed, they clearly don't. There are only so many guys that can get paid and it's pretty clear that if they want a championship window everyone can't get paid. They have taken a RB every year and went back to back edge guys. The tradeoff in that roster building strategy is you're likely trying to build a development program and not going to really resign a guy in his last year unless he's a Quinnen Williams level all-pro talent.

Now that they have cost certainty in Rodgers to a degree, they will end up being selective with who they re-sign. I like Huff as I think we all do, he's really good at what he excels in, which is a valuable skillset to have for a contending team. Hence ride it out this year and don't move him as he's more valuable to the Jets than a future asset in all likelihood. But he's likely going to get a payday elsewhere.

The only other clear-cut guys on the team right now that I think are slam dunks for extensions if they keep it up is Sauce and Garrett, but obviously that's a few years off. Otherwise, I think they're going to keep trying to replenish the other areas and see who rises up.

the wildcard in all this is Lawson's back.  Back injuries are tricky and can take your breath away but they should heal 4 weeks or so depending on severity which enough for him to play against Buffalo (my hope anyway).  If Lawson full go then he will get his 50% of snaps probably (1 and 2 downs at least), if he is no go or limited I imagine JJ and Clemons would get those snaps on 1st and 2nd down.  On 3rd down I wont even guess what they will do guess wait and see.  Huff is a specialist which is not what they need to fill the Lawson void if it turns out to be one but could end up that way if Lawson goes IR.
