Good morning Gang Green Nation! The New York Jets are being mentioned as one of the favorites to land quarterback Lamar Jackson this offseason. While Jackson is a great talent, I just don’t see the fit. Any team that gets Jackson is probably going to want to run an offense that maximizes the running game, like the Ravens have done. The Jets aren’t really set up to do that. They don’t have the offensive line. They don’t have the tight ends. It just isn’t an ideal situation to bring Jackson into. I don’t really see why Jackson would want to come here. In addition, signing Jackson would take a huge chunk of the very limited amount of cap space the Jets have in 2023. The Jets would lack the ability to re-sign key free agents or replace them with upgrades. Jackson has also missed quite a bit of time in the last few years, making him an injury risk the Jets could do without. Ultimately, while Jackson would surely be a major upgrade at quarterback, I’m not sure the fit is right for either Jackson or the Jets.
