    I've heard more rumors about Denver throwing NYJ a couple second day picks for Darnold rather than moving up. Hopefully anyway, these QBs look like a crapshoot. Rather they stay at 9 and hope Micah Parsons falls to them (they could move up for him too).

    I think that could be a steal for Denver.  Darnold has been in some pretty bad situations, I think he could be a good QB with better players around him.   Or at the very least it's still up in the air.

    With it becoming more obvious the Jets will take a QB and they want to move Darnold, his price will drop the closer we get to the draft.

    Personally, if I were the Jets I'd keep Darnold another year, draft a rookie QB and see how it goes.

    If the Jets signed him to be their #1 WR, and I don't think Mims is that yet, this a bad signing. 

    I still think they might be considering keeping Darnold, trading their pick to a team like Carolina, and using that pick on Chase, Smith, Pitts, or Waddle based on best available. That would make this signing more palatable. 

    It's not a bad signing as far as risk/reward imo.

    If I had to bet on what the Jets are going to do at QB, it would be trading Darnold and picking a QB.  That simply has to do with the economics of the situation, Darnold is due to get paid after next season, drafting a QB gives the Jets much more cap room to work with....Ideally they'd just keep Darnold if he were better than whoever they have graded as the #2 QB, but I doubt that is what they're thinking.

    Y'all wrong. Jamison Crowder is the number one.

    lol why

     

    The Jets need WRs, and Davis is only 26 years old.  The guaranteed part of the contract is 2 years 20 million dollars.

    I'd expect the Jets to add more recievers here, they could possibly cut Crowder to save 10M this season, but with the state of the WRs being what it is they might just let him play out the year for the 10M.

    Jets GM Joe Douglas typically wants to build through the draft and aquire younger players in free agency.  

    If the Jets are signing more WRs in free agency, I'd expect younger WRs like Juju or Will Fuller before guys like TY Hilton or Alshon Jeffery.

    The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks report Russell Wilson's camp has broached trade destinations with Seattle to the Dolphins, Jets, Saints and Raiders.

    Apparently he’ll only accept trades to the Cowboys, Saints, Raiders or Bears.

     

    It only took 2 hours for his agent to shoot down the Jets and Dolphins.  😀

     

    Also, his Agent listing teams that he'll play for in public is basically asking those teams to call for a trade.

    Bell is 29 in human years and appears to be about 49 in running back years.

     

    He has less carries on his body than most great running backs did by his age.  He's just a player that fits well in a particular scheme.  He should have fit better with the Chiefs, but how much work should he have gotten after joining the team in the middle of the pandemic season?

    If Bell is content being a backup or competing for touches he should go to a team that has a system that would fit his running style well... Denver or Vegas would make sense.

    NFL Network's Tom Pelissero said teams have continued to call the Seahawks about Russell Wilson's availability. 

    Pelissero reiterated that teams calling about Wilson haven't received any indication that Seattle is "in any way inclined to trade their start quarterback." The calls about the quarterback have persisted, Pelissero said, largely because his recent media tour in which he has expressed displeasure about taking too many hits and about the direction of the Seahawks offense. Wilson is under contract with the Seahawks for another three seasons and has a no-trade clause in his contract, meaning -- like Deshaun Watson -- Wilson could choose where he would be traded if the Seahawks are eventually willing to part ways. Barring a stunning about face by the Seahawks, Wilson, 32, will be the team's starter in 2021.

    Imagine the Jets calling and offering their first round picks for 21 and 22 and Seattle's first round picks in 21 and 22.  🤣

    Plugged-in Texans reporter: If Deshaun Watson gets traded ‘it would be to the Jets’

    John McClain, who has covered the NFL at the Houston Chronicle for more than 45 years, said on SportsRadio 610 in Houston that the Texans remain firm behind the scenes in their public stance about not trading quarterback Deshaun Watson.

    Unless the Jets convince them otherwise. There is a caveat that will have New York – and the rest of the AFC East – buzzing. 

    “Anybody who says [the Texans] called the Eagles, not true,” McClain said. “If they traded him, it would be the Jets. No, they have not contacted anyone about trading Watson.”

    McClain previously suggested the Texans’ asking price would start at two first-round picks, two second-round picks and two young defensive starters.

    “They don’t call teams. Teams call them,” McClain said. “They told everybody they are not trading Watson. Doesn’t mean they won’t do it eventually, but I guarantee you if they did it, [it] would not be for Carson Wentz and the Eagles.”

    Texans president Jamey Rootes has resigned.

    Rootes has spent the last 20 years with the Texans, where he oversaw the business and administrative side of the organization. This isn't related to the Deshaun Watson situation, but the Texans have been shaking up their front office, also moving on from director of football administration Kevin Kracjcovic. PFT's Mike Florio reported part of Rootes' decision to resign is based on his GM recommendations being ignored. Senior VP of corporate development Greg Grissom will oversee business operations until the Texans hire a new president.

    How many people in this organization think they should have meaningful input on a new GM?

    Of these people, how many realize teams were calling the Patriots about Nick Caserio for around the past 5 years?

    This isn't like the Texans hired someone out of left field.

    Fwiw, I was really impressed by how mobile Mahomes was considering he wasn't 100%. Thanks to his line he was running a lot and he didn't let his foot affect him that much.

     

    He was the player I was most impressed with in this game.  Very gutsy performance, and made some beautiful throws on the run that ended up incomplete through no fault of his own.

    You’re not drafting O-lineman in the first for “depth.”

    Right.  How many teams have a great backup left tackle?  The reality is most teams can't win with multiple injuries on their OL, many don't even have a decent backup LTs or swing linemen that can play LT well.

    70M monthly listeners on Spotify for #1 in the world and multiple songs with billions of streams and multiple songs on YouTube with near 2 billion views.

    Again, doesn’t make you seem “cool” or “different”. You clearly live under a rock. 

     

     Yeah imagine someone over 30 not knowing the most popular artist in the current year?  Everyone knows who is #1 on spotify.

    Surely there have never been differences in musical taste by generation.  I do have to admit I missed the halftime show, I was busy tuning my harpsichord.

    Why did Watson get his Head Coach fired, starting the season 0-4 and looking downright abysmal?

    You know, the same coach that Nick Saban, the GOAT college coach, just hired to become Alabama's OC? Bill O'Brien knows a little something about Offensive Football.

    The fact is, Bill O'Brien is an outstanding coach on the offensive side of the ball. O'Brien was leading the Texans to the playoffs with the likes of Brock Osweiler and Brian Hoyer as his QB. Isn't it kind of ironic that after propping up those dumpster fire QBs, it's ultimately Watson who gets O'Brien fired?

     

    Cool to see Bill O'Brien has an account here.

    I admit I don't know much about the guy and maybe he is doing everything that is being reported but hiring Nick Caserio as GM was a solid move.  I don't think anyone is questioning that.

    The guy who has been helping Belichick with the draft for the past few years?  How has that been working out?

     

    Teams have been trying to poach Nick Caserio for a few years.  He's a good pick.  

     

    Since when does your QB get to have input into your GM hire?    What's the talent level cut off for that?
