Although most Jets fans are very disappointed with the way this free agency period is going, I believe that Idzik knows exactly what he is doing. He has put prices on players and won’t over-spend. I know fans are upset that we let DRC sign with the cross town rivals the GMen but he was not worth a 5 year deal the giants gave him. In fact Idzik is really having a great offseason. We improved on Offensive signing Decker and letting Holmes (selfish non team player) go. Letting Austin Howard go hurt but he was replaced by a starter from the super bowl winning Seahawks. On D we have improved as well because young players that played well last year will only continue to get better. I know loosing Cromartie hurt, but he had a terrible season and is getting old. All that being said here is an interesting look at what the Jets can do over the next few days.
They need to trade a 3rd or preferably a 4th (we have 2) round pick for Desean Jackson
Jackson knows the system having played his whole career except last year with Marty Mornhinweg. He is a play-maker who will open up he field. Jackson will help players like Kerley and Decker get open underneath. We have not had a player like Jackson since Braylon Edwards first season with the Jets when he opened the field for Holmes.
If we trade for Jackson we can use our first round pick on a CB to play alongside Dee Miller. If you don’t trust the young guys at CB we can even sign a CB through FA at the right price to add depth.
Side note- The Patriots have inquired about obtaining Desean Jackson. We cannot let the Patriots add another weapon to their Offensive after they added Brandon Lafell and resigned Edleman.
