As the news starts to sift in that the lockout may finally be coming to an end (I almost don't want to write this for fear of jinxing it) its time to (finally) actually start thinking about free agency for real. The Jets will probably be one of the most active teams in FA as they have many FA's on their own team and many holes to fill if those players are not resigned. Additionally, there are other FA's out there who can be very valuable to the team (you really think I, of all people, wouldn/t bring Nnamdi into the discussion?????). Reports are saying that the cap will probably be set at $120-123 million, or slightly less than the $128 million it was in the last capped year of 2009. So what should the Jets do?
First off, here's the list of important Jets free agents (I'm not listing type because I don't know what the rules will be)
Frankly, my first options would be to take care of Santonio and Braylon above all else. I don't really care if Brad Smith stays, I feel he's pretty replaceable. I'm fine if we keep Cro but I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to get Asomugha if possible. I've already stated my reasons numerous times. Ellis can walk. I don't really have a preference for Pool or Smith per se.
What do you guys think? How should the Jets approach this? Who should they keep? Pick up?
