Jets Checklist for 2010 Offseason

Now that the number 2 corner spot has been filled, heres the checklist of things the Jets need to do (in order of importance)

1. Build Depth

Yes, the Jets are, right now, in that “win now” mode. They got this way using Free-Agency and trading up in drafts. This leaves the back end of the roster with a lot of UFA’s. We have been ridiculously lucky that the o-line has had no injuries in 2 years. This draft provides the best opportunity for that. Kris is over 30, most of our o-line is around 30, and the D-line is getting old.

2. Resign Revis and Mangold Long-Term

They’re the best in the business at their respective positions. Mangold is definitely worth big bucks, but there should be absolutely no spending limit on Revis. Keep them both here for another decade.  

3. Re-sign Thomas Jones

We just signed a polarizing talent in Cromartie, and there is no one better than TJ than getting everyone on the same boat. He did it Braylon, he can do it with Antonio.  Not to mention, Leon might be gone and Greene can’t carry the load himself in a run-heavy offense.

4. Find a Pass Rusher

This should be addressed in the draft. I like Jerry Hughes personally.

5. Keep Kerry Rhodes & Leon Washington

Yes, I said it. People here, I believe, have seriously underestimated Kerry’s ability. If Rex didn’t want him, he would have gotten rid of him by now. In the Jets cover-1 schemes, Kerry’s range is vital. Yeah, he’s not physical, but sticking a bruiser back there doesn’t make guys less open.

About Leon, I believe he will be fine next year. We should pay too much to keep him, but it’s worth it to stretch our budget a tad to keep Leon around.

 

Side note – this is pretty interesting http://www.nj.com/jets/index.ssf/2010/03/ny_jets_acquire_cornerback_ant.html

Coles is contacting the Jets. Not the other way around.
