Jets Podcast: Thoughts About Building

NFL: Combine Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Last week’s rumors about the Jets being interested in Yannick Ngakoue got me thinking.

I don’t think trading for Ngakoue would be the right move for the Jets for many reasons. These reasons mainly revolve around the Jets’ current path. This isn’t a total tear down project, but this is the team at the very beginning of its build. With abundant resources at their disposal to build for the future, I don’t think the Jets should be tempted by modest short term gains. This is set up to be the next NFL team on the rise if the correct decisions are made.

Frequently teams fail to understand their true trajectory, and this leads to disappointment. The smart teams know where they are and how to balance short term gain with long term vision. I offer my own thoughts about all of this and more on today’s show.

Thank you for listening.
