The Hey Joe what you need to do article

Photo by Ronald Martinez/ Positive moves to make the Jets contenders There is no offseason anymore in the NFL. With free agency and the NFL Draft approaching everyone has to be ready for the excitement, the joy, and the inevitable heartbreak. So let’s look at what the Jets can do to make this year an unmitigated delight for a fanbase that hasn’t had much to cheer about for the last few years. There are many paths the Jets can take to become relevant again in the football world. but I will be looking at a single vision for a dream offseason. Now is this path...

Podcast: Jets Free Agency Focus

Photo by Stephen Maturen/ Free agency is scheduled to begin next week in the NFL. The Jets will finally get a chance to upgrade their roster. We have been waiting for this moment for a few months. It feels like a long time since the Jets left the field in Foxborough after closing the 2020 season with their 14th loss. Of course the season was really over long before that. It feels like we have been looking forward to this offseason since at least September. On today’s podcast I offer some thoughts about players who would be at the top of my list of free agents if I...

New York Jets Flight Connections 3/8/21

Photo by Al Pereira/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Shout out to Mr. Wells for holding down the fort over the weekend as usual. Less than ten days until NFL Free Agency begins, and plenty of names are already starting to get tied to the Jets. Superstar WR Allen Robinson has done a good job driving speculation, liking multiple social media posts involving him joining the team this year. I think Robinson would be a great addition to the team. But with the Jets unlikely to...
As The Deadline Approaches, Will Jets Franchise Safety Marcus Maye?

As The Deadline Approaches, Will Jets Franchise Safety Marcus Maye?

Photo by Al Pereira/ Although we’re still a week away from Free Agency, today marks the first step in the free agency process. Teams have a 9th of March deadline for their franchise tag candidates. This means that by the end of tomorrow, we’ll have a firm understanding of who’s hitting free agency. As of this moment, the only player to be slapped with the Franchise Tag is Denver Broncos safety Justin Simmons. I fully expect there to be a flurry of tags today which will take some players off the board for the Jets and other teams during free agency. Carl Lawson...

Photo by Ron Antonelli/NY Daily News Archive via Good morning, Gang Green Nation! Eight more days before legal tampering begins. It’s the calm before the storm. Everyone has their top free agents the New York Jets should pursue. You know the names: Joe Thuney, Corey Linsley, Allen Robinson, Trey Hendrickson, etc. But what about the less prominent names? Chances are Joe Douglas will not be signing all the biggest names in free agency, and with the second most cap space in the NFL, chances are also that Joe Douglas will be signing a lot of free agents. Which means we...

Photo by Kathryn Riley/ Good morning, Gang Green Nation! Just nine days now before the so-called “legal tampering” period begins, leading into the new league year and the annual free agent frenzy in the NFL. Of course, illegal tampering NEVER happens prior to the legal tampering period (wink, wink). The long stretch of no news between the Super Bowl and the new league year is almost over. Cuts across the league will pick up in the coming week, tags will be applied, and we will finally have something real and tangible to talk about. Just a few more days now. In the...
Todd McShay’s Latest 2021 NFL Mock Draft Sends Zach Wilson and Azeez Ojulari to the Jets

Todd McShay’s Latest 2021 NFL Mock Draft Sends Zach Wilson and Azeez Ojulari to the Jets

Photo by Mark Brown/ ESPN’s Todd McShay is out with his latest mock draft. With their two first round picks, McShay has the Jets upgrading the two most important positions on the field. BYU quarterback Zach Wilson is the pick at second overall. 2. New York Jets Zach Wilson, QB, BYU The logic here stands from my last mock draft: I expect Wilson to be the No. 2 overall pick, whether or not it is the Jets making it. Projecting this pick isn’t necessarily suggesting they should or will move on from Sam Darnold, but if they do, Wilson is the obvious next move. If they...
Mailbag: What Should the Jets’ Strategy Be in Free Agency?

Mailbag: What Should the Jets’ Strategy Be in Free Agency?

Photo by Al Pereira/ We had so many good questions for this week’s podcast mailbag that I decided to do a bonus mailbag show to close out the week. This can only happen because of the volume of excellent questions asked so thank you. Today we look at whether the rate of quarterbacks changing teams could impact the Jets’ strategy at quarterback, whether there could be a blockbuster trade with Washington for the second overall pick, whether Joe Douglas might keep compensatory picks in mind as he develops a free agency approach, which free agents made a big impact with...

Photo by Elsa/ Bringing your daily links to the NFL’s New York Jets Good morning, GGN! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. As we get closer to the NFL Draft, the betting line is favoring Zach Wilson more often. Per Oddschecker (and through their spokesman and our very own Kyle Newman), the BYU quarterback is as much as a -455 favorite on some sites. This hasn’t stopped bettors from putting more money on Justin Fields though. Despite increasing evidence of the contrary happening, 61% of bets this past week have been placed on Fields to be selected by...

Reviewing the status of Jets players who ended 2020 on the injured list

Photo by Timothy T Ludwig/ Before we head into the new league year, it’s worth taking stock of some of the returning players in terms of their injury status. While they suffered an overwhelming amount of minor injuries in the early part of the season, the Jets were fortunate enough to avoid too many long-term injuries over the course of the season. However, there still may be some players who are racing against time to be ready in time for offseason workouts. Let’s recap where everyone stands: Players under contract The most serious-sounding injury from last year...

Photo by Al Pereira/ On today’s podcast we take a look at some of the Jets news from the week. Earlier in the week news broke of the team’s first major player personnel move of the offseason. The Jets will release defensive lineman Henry Anderson, which will save over $8 million in salary cap space in 2021. Anderson was acquired in a trade with the Colts during the 2018 NFL Draft. He had a productive first season with the team which led to a large contract in free agency. Things did not pan out. We also talk about Marcus Maye. Maye’s agent made headlines with a...
