Good morning Gang Green Gang! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. The New York Jets have declined options on three defensive players. The most surprising would be that of DT Mike Pennel, who seemed to be working his way up the ladder fairly well this past season. Perhaps a scheme issue, or a mutual agreement to explore other horizons could be the cause. The two non-surprises were LB Kevin Pierre-Louis and S Terrence Brooks. Although I think Kevin performed decently when forced into a bigger role, there was not much to show that his tenure with the Jets would be meaningful. Terrence Brooks should have had his option declined much sooner, given that when Marcus Maye went down in the season Todd Bowles actually called upon a CB in Darryl Roberts to play the position. At its face these moves make sense, it’s just interesting to see if Mike Maccagnan has the ability to find talent better than that this upcoming off-season. With that said, here are your links to the Jets this Wednesday.
