Good morning, GGN! Another day, another Jets defensive star lost for the 2020 NFL season. First the Jets traded Jamal Adams, now C.J. Mosley will sit out the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns. The Jets defense is left with little in the way of star power, though Quinnen Williams could develop into a star in his second season.

Speculation has begun both that the Jets might tear things down and tank the 2020 season, or that they may do the opposite and acquire star players like Jadeveon Clowney, Yannick Ngakoue or Allen Robinson. Without any inside knowledge as to what Joe Douglas is thinking, I don’t expect either of these approaches to gain much traction. Acquiring a star player at this late date would seem to conflict with Douglas’ approach to free agency this season, unless Douglas is able to bring in said player at a substantial discount. And nothing we’ve seen to date suggests the Jets are even considering holding a fire sale. Most likely the Jets will continue with a methodical, long term approach to team building.
