Good morning, Jet fans! I hope everyone’s having a great start to their day. There’s not really anything groundbreaking today in terms of Jet news, as fans are still clamoring for the team to shore up the Center and Cornerback positions. Unlike most fans, I don’t think either happens. Perhaps a lowly C is signed in FA, but even if Stefan Wisniewski joins the team I’m not really sure if it’s ideal to have him starting in that position either. He hasn’t played the Center in a couple years and we’ve seen how having an older player who doesn’t play the position full-time goes. In regards to Cornerback, I fully believe Daryl Roberts will take the next step and become a serviceable, if not above average CB2. Dare I say he will have a breakout year. I understand I’m in the minority in that regard, but I think Trumaine Johnson should have a bigger question mark over his name. A CB being paid that much money to play so poorly is one of the worst moves I’ve seen from Mike Maccagnan. Without a doubt Johnson needs to increase his level of play if he wishes to remain on the team—or any team—for the remainder of his career. Sam Darnold could be the savior of Mac’s job, but players like Johnson could be an added reason as to why he loses it. With that, here are your links for the team this Thursday.
