Is Law really needed now?

For all the people who seem to be throwing the idea out that Ty Law would be our savior on defense I have a few doubts to that idea. There is no doubt that he would improve our defense, but he's in his 30's and asking for 4 years about 6 million a year. This hit on the salary cap is going to cause problems when it comes to signing some other big players in the future (Vilma and the other LB's, Barrett, new rb from draft or free agency to replace CM). For the type of defense that the Jets play and with their strength in the LB's and D line they don't need as much strength at the cb spot because of the added pressure on the quarterback. Hunter from Dallas is a good pick up and is a big guy for a cb spot (6'2" 208 lbs.) and can do a good enough job until some of the jets young talent at cb (Miller, Strait) develop and could possibly fill one of the starting spots. Even if they take longer to develop the Jets can grab a "B" quality starting cb to fill the hole next year and not have to worry about Law and his contract.

Let me know what you think.

I may be in the minority but I have seen too many times the teams I root for getting burned on older athletes (Rangers and Mets) -especially coming off injuries. I rather the young guys we have in the secondary battle it out and the best one plays.

Just think of how it was just before Herm started, we were a old persons home. Vinny, Mo Lewis, Marvin Jones. We have moved away from older veterans, why should we move back now. The Jets have a good youth movement right now

The Steelers are in continuous youth movement mode. Yea we compete regularly but what has it really gotten us? I say sometimes ya just can't beat experience to go with youth as well.
