New England Patriots versatile veteran Kyle Van Noy would represent a keen free agent signing for Joe Douglas and the New York Jets.

Anything you can do, I can do better. Right?

Well, for the New York Jets, when thinking about the New England Patriots, it’s not possible. At least, not yet.

What can happen, instead, is a Larry David-like spite store situation. Latte Larry’s, coming in the form of the Jets, of course, can ramp up production right next to Mocha Joe’s, the Pats. But what started as a store strictly in the mold of spite has quickly turned into flavorful coffee created by some of the world’s best beans.


Kyle Van Noy doesn’t just represent spite.

The veteran linebacker makes his way to the open market as an interesting case. Van Noy, 28 (will turn 29 later this month), is a two-time Super Bowl champion who doesn’t exactly fit the Jets defense upon first glance.

Another linebacker? Why?

It’s true, Van Noy came out of BYU as a true second-level backer. From 2014 through the early part of 2016, he played WILL or SAM for the team that drafted him in the second round, the Detroit Lions.

That really didn’t change when Bill Belichick decided to acquire him. He played the WILL in a Belichick four-man front under defensive coordinator Matt Patricia.
