** I’d love another stud on the O-line and if San Fran offers Deebo for Wilson, that’s a big upgrade…but JD should make them pay a late penalty of a 4th rounder.
**** I can’t remember the last time I’ve been this excited for a Jets season to start.
Unless Zack has the yips on screen passes I feel comfortable saying this team will put up 30 more often than they don’t.
Look at that talent…Joe D!!!!

I went into this offseason thinking this was a 2 year project but between free agency and the draft the team is pretty darn close.
The offensive talent is extremely deep. If San Fran cane calling foe a Wilson Deebo trade you have to consider it.
If Lawson cones back and is what he was, Mosely is better because of more help and of course Zack Wilson performs like he did 2nd half with Berrios and practice squad, they figure out how to use Carter and Hall both in tandem and keeping each other fresh and Wilson keeps all the receivers happy, this could be an exciting season.
If CJ and Lawson look old at least we can let them go with little dead money and open $30m plus the cap increase.
Worst case I see alot of 35-30 games…Wish the season was starting….Mets boring me.

I wanted Mathieu but 3/$33 is high at his age and somewhat drop-off. Didn’t see the guarantee.

Disappointing group. But we will see, Jets will have to make corresponding cuts.

I agree a bit underwhelming but think that is because we don’t have much room on roster we already have approx 83 players signed when you include our draft picks. So really just need camp.bodies and if someone surprises so be it.

I still see us signing one or two free agents like Kwon Alexander and bringing back Keelan Cole, plus possibly one or two training camp cuts in September. So there will be cuts on our roster, and I doubt any of these UDFA make anything other than the practice squad.

Their prices will drop, tomorrow signings will not count against compensatory equation. Jets need to make cuts to make room for UNDFA’s. CAP pretty tight, Douglas will need to maneuver.
