Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.

Free-agency preview: Jets Teams

Will Darrelle Revis be back in a Jets uniform next season? (USATSI)

Team overview: There will be an air of change for the Jets in 2013 -- whether for better or worse remains to be seen. New York replaced its general manager and both coordinators after a 6-10 season that included three straight losses to close out the season and a feeling of disarray surrounding the franchise. Marty Mornhinweg will attempt to change the offense from its ground-and-pound philosophy to a more open, passer-friendly attack. Dennis Thurman -- the new defensive coordinator -- spent last season as the team's secondary coach. He'll be tasked with shoring up a front that was near the bottom of the league in rushing yards allowed. And GM John Idzik is on the hunt for players to fill out the roster -- and he's apparently shopping some of the Jets' best players, as well.

What the depth chart tells you: The Jets need skill players in the worst way. As much as the offense became a laughing-stock, the O-line was actually one of the best in the NFL according to ProFootballFocus.com. The problem was the ineffectiveness of quarterback Mark Sanchez, running back Shonn Greene and a host of middling wide receivers. Greene and tight end Dustin Keller will become unrestricted free agents March 12, so deciding what to do with them will be one of Idzik's first major decisions.

In terms of additions, the Jets absolutely must acquire more skill, althouth there's not a ton of talent on the open market available. New York did claim wide receiver Braylon Edwards late last season (though he will be an unrestricted free agent, as well) and, should the front office let Greene go, the door could open for running backs Bilal Powell and perhaps the speedy Joe McKnight.

Ideal free agency and draft strategy: So, yes, the Jets need skill players. Beyond that, Idzik and the front office have been active in trying to find some quarterback competition for Sanchez. Tim Tebow will be released, it appears, and that leaves Greg McElroy and Matt Simms to challenge Sanchez. Brady Quinn and David Garrard are names that have been bandied about to add some depth at quarterback, but don't be surprised if New York takes a QB in the draft, though their first-round pick will likely be used on a big name defensive end or outside linebacker to shore up the run defense.

Beyond that, the Jets will likely focus on what to do with cornerback Darrelle Revis and safety LaRon Landry, with Landry set to become an unrestricted free agent. Still, priority No. 1 must be bringing in some help on offense to surround Sanchez, whether that means re-signing Edwards or taking a flyer on a free agent like Danny Amendola -- or both.

What will happen: The Jets have plenty of need -- but not plenty of money. Their projected cap figure leaves them just $8 million under, so there isn't much wiggle room. They will free some space by releasing Tebow and perhaps bring in a big name by trading Revis -- as difficult as that may be -- but will it be enough to make a difference? Chances are they'll add a few names on offense to complement Sanchez, but it appears that Greene and Keller -- though the tight end has said he wants to stick around -- will be in different uniforms next year.

In sum, it could be a new-look team, but the same result.
