If the New York Jets earn the first overall selection, could blue-chip quarterback prospect Trevor Lawrence decide to stay at Clemson?

As the Jets tumble their way to a 10th consecutive non-playoff season, many observers have begun wondering if all-time great quarterback prospect Trevor Lawrence could decide to stay in school rather than subject himself to the hapless professional franchise in Florham Park.

Ben Blessington and Michael Nania are here to break down the complete absurdity of that notion on the latest episode of Cool Your Jets.

In addition, Ben and Michael answer a multitude of other mailbag questions surrounding the future of the team.

If the Jets end up landing the top selection, will Douglas approach the 2021 free agent market with an aggressive mindset to surround a potential new franchise quarterback?

Solid defensive tackle and strong veteran presence Steve McLendon was shipped to Tampa Bay for a 2022 sixth-rounder. Does this signal an incoming mass exodus of Jets veterans for draft ammunition?

Who are the top head coach candidates for Joe Douglas and the Jets? If you were their agents, how would you pitch them to the team?

All eyes in the Meadowlands are already focused upon 2021, and there is no better place to get a crystal-clear view of the future than the Cool Your Jets podcast.
