New York Jets Offseason: Mike Maccagnan Attended Tropic Bowl

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

It is college all-star game season. The top NFL Draft prospects get invited to the Senior Bowl. Lesser prospects end up in games like the East-West Shrine Game and the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. Apparently there was a new game created this season called the Tropic Bowl for even lesser prospects. The game singled out Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan to thank him for attending.

According to the game's official website, 27 NFL teams and 4 CFL teams sent representatives to scout.

The fact the Canadian Football League is sending scouts was an indication of the talent level in this game. Five NFL teams did not even send a scout. The Jets sent their general manager. Is this an indication of the emphasis the Jets are putting on thorough scouting of the college game and leaving no stone unturned to find hidden gems? I will leave that for you to decide.
