Sauce Gardner had a message loud and proud on his t-shirt today.
The free agent receiver has a lengthy list of suitors as the race to sign him heats up. The pursuit of Odell Beckham Jr. has been heating up, but interested teams have had to stay patient as the free agent wide receiver continues to recover from a torn ACL. Based on a recent report, suitors won’t have to wait much longer for the three-time Pro Bowler to make his decision. Beckham would like to shorten his list of teams as soon as possible and aims to make a decision on his next team by the end of November, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The 30-year-old Beckham still has his sights set on joining a contender, with the Cowboys, Bills, Chiefs, Giants and 49ers firmly in the mix, per Schefter. The Rams and Packers, previously thought to be in the running for Beckham, are unlikely to be serious contenders for the wideout as both teams fade away from playoff contention, according to Schefter.

Joe Flacco looked like he was washed up, the Jets dropped too many passes and made too many mistakes, and they couldn’t convert a third down if their lives depended on it. The Ravens made a few big plays in the game and the Jets made none, and that was all it took for another September loss for the Jets. Now the Jets prepare for a road game against the Cleveland Browns (-2.5) Wager $10 on CLE To Beat NE: $17.14 Win by 2.5: $18.70 To Lose: $22.00 . The Browns will be without their starting quarterback, Deshaun Watson, who is suspended for the first 11 games of this season. Nonetheless, the Browns at home remain a challenge. With a great running game anchored by Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt and a rugged defense led by outstanding pass rusher Myles Garrett, the Browns present a major threat to send the Jets to their second consecutive defeat.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Jets open as 6.5 point underdogs against the Browns on Sunday. That seems like a fair spread against a Jets team led by a backup quarterback in 37 year old Joe Flacco who does not look capable of leading many wins anymore. The Jets defense looked pretty good against the Ravens, and if they play well again on Sunday, the Jets should be capable of keeping this game close. But the Jets offense under Flacco just does not inspire confidence
In 2018, Lamar Jackson was selected relatively late in the first round. Although Josh Allen was picked earlier than the other quarterbacks that year, he may have been seen as the highest danger. The skeptics have been more silent. Allen remarked, "I believe it's as easy as we're doing what's expected of us. "There were many various ideas and viewpoints regarding both of us after the draft. We're just looking for strategies to support the football victories of our squad. He performs it as well as anyone in the league, too. On Sunday in Baltimore, when Allen and the Buffalo Bills take on Jackson and the Ravens, they'll undoubtedly be more worried than they were four years ago about the draft. It serves as a reminder, though, that predicting a quarterback's career is not an exact science given how these two have developed into superstars. It's simple to understand why Allen and Jackson would have a healthy appreciation for one another. Jackson said, "There can't be any hanging around and anything like that because he's in Buffalo and I'm over here in Baltimore. But when we see one another, we act respectfully toward one another.
Stung by injuries in the preseason, the New York Jets will be without left tackle Duane Brown for their opener Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens at MetLife Stadium. Brown, 37, who signed a two-year, $20 million contract Aug. 15 to replace the injured Mekhi Becton (out for the season), suffered a shoulder injury in Monday's practice and could be headed to injured reserve, according to coach Robert Saleh. The Jets are evaluating test results and soon will make a decision on whether to place Brown on IR, which would sideline him for a minimum of four games. The news comes only two days after the Jets announced that quarterback Zach Wilson will miss at least the first three games as he continues to recover from arthroscopic knee surgery. Early in training camp, Becton injured his right knee in practice, requiring surgery.

Ricks Brown's injury forces yet another shuffling of the tackle positions, hardly an ideal situation with the opener so close. Right tackle George Fant, who began camp at left tackle, will move back to that position. "Obviously, I'm frustrated," he told reporters Friday. "It's the second time I've had to move the week of a game. I can't control it, but it's obviously a frustrating situation."
