Jets free agency rumors

At this time of the year it’s impossible to separate fact from fiction. All kinds of rumors get made.

What are some things people are saying about the Jets?

It would come as no surprise if the Jets made a big push in free agency to add multiple offensive linemen. It was the clear weakest link of the team a year ago, and the general manager who viewed it as an afterthought is gone.

I think the corner market has some risky option this year. Mind you, risky doesn’t necessarily mean bad. It means risky. The Jets do need to upgrade their cornerback spot. While Gregg Williams worked around this weakness a year ago, you don’t want to force him to do it again. This year’s group of quarterback opponents also looks less favorable on paper than last year’s.

I think the Jets should make an effort to keep Anderson. Still I can’t help but feel like a deal would have already been made if this was going to happen. Anderson is likely to make a lot of money on the open market, and I’m not sure it would be wise to give him a top of the free agent class type deal.
