What will Joe Douglas’ New York Jets offseason plan be? (Podcast)

Ben Blessington and Michael Nania answer mailbag questions regarding Joe Douglas‘ many potential courses of action in the 2021 offseason.

Like a kid in a candy store, Joe Douglas has a wealth of mouth-watering options at his disposal this offseason. Overflowing with cap space and draft picks to inject life into a roster that has more holes than a sponge, there is seemingly an infinite number of directions that Douglas can take his team.

On the latest episode of the Cool Your Jets podcast, Ben Blessington and Michael Nania answered a bevy of mailbag questions centered around Douglas’ mindset.

In free agency, how much more aggressive will Douglas be compared to his mostly-frugal approach in the 2020 offseason? Is he going to be willing to break the bank for elite options at positions of need such as Joe Thuney, Brandon Scherff, Allen Robinson, and Carl Lawson?

Does a Deshaun Watson pursuit align with Douglas’ values – at least as we perceive them at the moment? If Douglas does put in a call on Watson, how far would he be willing to go in order to acquire the star quarterback?

How many wins would Watson add to the Jets in 2021? How quickly could the Jets reach Super Bowl contention after trading the farm for him?

Come draft weekend, what will Douglas’ core philosophy be? Will he take a “best player available” mindset or are there particular positions he will focus on addressing as early as possible?

Ben and Michael break down the many different avenues that Douglas could take, and which ones are the most likely.
