    Jets filled their C need with Spencer Long.

    I like Brett Jones, he was good, and certaintly better than Richburg, last year. DJ Fluker is passable as a Guard, if we draft another one we have a decent line next year.

    Edit: Actually, no. I don't buy Flowers as a RT.

    At least the QB will be able to see the pass rush coming at him instead of his blind side?

    Jets with some very nice moves

    Signing Solder is big for the Giants, they pretty much HAD to sign a tackle.

    This Solder Deal is HILARIOUS. What a garbage contract. The most mediocre player in the league as the highest paid LT.

    Panic move. Pure panic move.

    Yea I can understand this point of view too. I am pro-QB at 2, but if they don't see anyone as an elite guy I'd be ok with either Saquon or a trade down.

    But I am really hoping they land the next guy at 2.

    Here's hoping for week 9-SB Nate Solder. Was made pretty clear come hell or high water the Giants were going to address the offensive line with free agency.

    Not sure how Giants would find the money to bring the Honeybadger in but would make a great pairing with Collins.

    You can't find those in free agency.

    I'm not sold on Bridgewatter, even as stop gap.
    Although I would love to go with a build piece, I think Jets have to consider QB.
    I think it was Bill Pollan on M Kay yester day and he say all 4 of the top QBs prospects have issues. I think he was saying to effect Allen is the best one for Jets.
    That's okay. And we can re-up 1 yr the guy from last yr to start again, cheap enuf. even if he is possible injury risk pushing towards 40.
    But we need to get like Paxton Lynch, who we should have taken the first time, and lose Hackenberg.

    Sure you can.

    You can't find them when you're desperate in free agency, though. Panic moves end up with insane contracts.

    Cutting Marshall would help.

    Who said that? But I distinctly remember you saying something about how much endorsement money he'd get playing in NY.

    Bridgewater has not completed a pass since 2015. Trumaine Johnson is the #68 CB per PFF. I don't see him being worth $15 million but it's 1 year and Jets have to pay someone to be cap compliant so whatever. Will McCown follow in Fitz's footsteps in his 2nd year or prove 2017 wasn't a fluke?

    PFF also has Johnson allowing 1 TD in 932 snaps last year. The opposing passer rating against him was under 80. Is that really the 68th best CB in the league? If so, there are a ****ing load of really good CBs in the league. PFF isn't the gospel truth and I've always found their "overall" rankings kind of strange. JMO, though. Yeah Johnson is overpaid by a few million but he limits big plays, he doesn't give up touchdowns, and he's a perfect fit in the Jets' scheme. It's also a multi-year deal, not just one year.

    With McCown and Bridgewater you get two character guys who can mentor the young QB you hopefully draft. And then you've got two veteran guys to play out the season while that guy grows. Maybe Bridgewater picks up where he left off a couple years ago. He was a pocket passer anyway. Maybe he can be Vinny Testaverde, who had no knees. Anyway, signing the two is giving yourself two potential options and hedging your bets.

    Plus, like I said. Crowell was solid. Williamson is a good move. Long was a decent signing with upside. I like the moves. I expect a few more and then I'm hoping for a good draft. Get the Jets back into position where instead of crumbling in the fourth they're winning those games and making the playoffs.

    You basically said the Browns would buy him over everyone. The Jets are a worse team than the Vikings and the Browns significantly worse than both. The idea that the Browns were ever a contender him died very early on.

    He IS passing on money. He’s trying to win. Which is why he surely wouldn’t go to Cleveland.

    Can’t. He has to pass a physical first.

    At the current time, what would you say is 90 cents on the dollar for OBJ?
