The holiday weekend is over, and the podcast returns today with a busy episode.
The biggest news in the NFL from the long weekend was the trade of superstar pass rusher Khalil Mack from the Raiders to the Bears. The Jets had been linked with Mack, and reports indicate they made a trade offer. It just could not beat the package Chicago offered, which included two first round picks. On today’s show we discuss the deal from the Jets perspective. Should the team have topped Chicago’s offer? While appreciating how good Mack is, I don’t think it would have been a prudent decision. We will discuss why.
We will also discuss the 53 man roster. There still will be some tweaking in the days ahead, but we now have a good idea of who will be on the team as the season kicks off Monday in Detroit. Who were some of the surprise cuts? Who should have made it? What should the team do from here? We go position by position through the roster.
