I keep hearing that after we deal with signing and re- signing all our own players,  and if we look at average cost scenarios, that we will only have around 13-15m to spend freely on FAs. I come up with around 18-20m. Idzik, work your magic. I understand the draft is for the future and the right way to build but if we want to be competitive THIS season, we need a few FAs who can step right in and hit the ground running namely on offense but also there are a few holes on the d side.

Welp, I guess the first step is dealing with getting rid off some of our own deadwood , signing some of our FA and dealing with a couple of contract extensions. Then, step 2 will be FAcy in which after the smoke clears, I believe we will have around 18- 20M to spend freely after idzik tweaks a few things. I believe that will be good enough for one nice splash but within reason, and 3/4 decent mid level pick ups. Then, the draft. In Idzik we trust!

Nothing much happening, this is the snooze part of the off season. We can start negotiating/signing and cutting some players though.

Good to see Josh Bush hanging out with Reed.  Hopefully Allen, Jarrett and Miles do the same at some point.

So proud and happy to "say" that Joe Namath is the property of the NY Jets..


When it comes to winning a super bowl Namath is still the best!

@harold  I think they're hoping Bush will take over that free-range safety role from Reed eventually, which is why he is doing the live-in stuff or whatever. Allen/Jarrett/Miles are different types of safeties (all playing in the box better than coverage), so while they can definitely learn tricks of the trade from Reed, position-wise he can help Bush a lot more.
