Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. As most of us know by now, the Jets have declined LB Darron Lee’s 5th year option. This comes as no surprise as the team drafted Blake Cashman in the 5th round of this year’s draft, and also picked up Avery Williamson and C.J. Mosley in consecutive years. Although I could see a niche role being carved out given Lee’s limited credentials, I don’t think that will come with the Jets. To be fair, any player who gets caught multiple times for steroids or drugs and still is weak in the run game has no place in a defense that I’d want to see. Even with Gregg Williams running the show I don’t see how that factor improves from Lee. The best hope is that the Jets can somehow manage to get a trade involving the ousted LB, but that seems slim as well. Do you think Lee could carve out a role on the team, or is a trade and/or walking in Free Agency his inevitable demise? With that said, here are your links for the team this Friday.
