NFL: Pro Bowl Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, GGN! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. Has anyone else noticed that Mike Maccagnan looks like Tiger from Fievel? Maybe like Tiger, his moves can start off as bad and turn out to be a success as well. Anywho, the Jets have started their off-season by releasing Spencer Long. I don’t think this comes as much of a surprise, but reports are also speculating that there’s a solid chance that Long re-signs with the Jets on a cheaper deal. Whether or not this happens remains to be seen, and whether or not that turns out to be the correct decision also remains to be seen. Long was terrible at both center and guard for the team, though with the holes present on the team it’s hard to get rid of everyone who sucks (and boy, aren’t there a lot of those guys on the team). Reports also are indicating that Leonard Williams will not be moved. I think this is also a smart idea, although I’m not as high on Leo as most. As much as people go into the ‘hidden production’ rhetoric, it just isn’t pertinent when the team is terrible. A guy with 0 sacks and 2 tackles with 10 hurries or ‘pressures’ on a terrible team looks worse than the guy with 5 sacks, 2 tackles and 0 hurries — and that’s just the truth. No one showing up when Leo is ‘gone’ or having an off day just means that the front 7 in general are bad, not that Leo is some astounding stud. I’m not trying to knock Leo, as he’s a solid starter in the league. I just think that the fans should expect more (especially out of a No. 6 overall pick) out of players that were labelled as main building blocks of the team. With that said, here’s your links for the Jets this Wednesday.
