Former New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott believes general manager Joe Douglas is adding guys “important for the culture.”

Off-the-field issues are hard to cite as it pertains to any of the newest New York Jets players, and fans and media pundits alike have noticed.

One such man is former Jets linebacker Bart Scott, who believes Joe Douglas is bringing in the right guys to help progress the culture in the right direction, via Olivia Landis of the Jets official website.

“He’s bringing in guys he understands are important for the culture,” said former Jets LB/ESPN Radio host Bart Scott. “Joe Douglas, for the first time in Jets’ recent free agency, is not trying to win the back pages. It’s not pretty, but these are quality football players that are going to add a lot of depth… Now you need quality glue guys, guys that you can count on and have versatility.”

That’s right. Douglas doesn’t care about your opinion. Why should he?

Last offseason, everything was a party. The biggest stars in free agency were snagged (Le’Veon Bell, C.J. Mosley), the biggest star in the player pool was drafted (Quinnen Williams), and J.B. Smoove wasn’t shy about blasting the night away at the team’s official new uniform launch party.

Everything was overhyped.

Today is a different story. Not since the Eric Mangini-Mike Tannenbaum duo had the Jets taken the value approach (with an actual plan). What is that plan? It’s easy to spot: build the trenches, most importantly, the offensive line in front of Sam Darnold.

“The Jets can be right there if Sam takes the next step,” Scott said. “This offseason has to be all about building around Sam Darnold.

With everybody still hunkered down during these crazy times, the Jets social media team is replaying the Monday Night Miracle on its YouTube page.
