Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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.

The New York Jets aren't ready to commit to Geno Smith.

General manager John Idzik made that clear during the team's end-of-season news conference.

"We're all excited about having Geno as part of the Jets, but we will always look to improve every position in any manner we can and that doesn't change going into 2014," Idzik said, via the New York Daily News. "We'll look at quarterbacks. Yes, we'll look at quarterbacks."

Smith won the starting job in training camp by default after Mark Sanchez suffered a season-ending shoulder injury in the team's third preseason game. Smith started in all 16 games in his rookie campaign, finishing with 3,046 passing yards, 12 touchdown passes, 21 interceptions and a 66.5 passer rating. He added six rushing touchdowns.

Smith went through extended periods where his play held the Jets back or took them completely out of games. It's almost certain the rookie would've been benched if the Jets had a better backup option than Matt Simms, an undrafted free agent with little NFL upside.


"He's a very resilient young man," Idzik said of Smith. "For him to start all 16 games, go through the highs and lows of an NFL season and just to see him develop as a player, see him handle a game, see him be more efficient in the pocket, his accuracy, threatening with his legs, all of the things that he did, they were very positive."

The Jets' quarterback depth chart will look very different in a few months. Sanchez almost certainly will be gone. Ditto for David Garrard. Signing a veteran quarterback who will challenge Smith this summer makes the most sense, a move that also will free up Idzik to use the draft to address the dearth of playmakers on offense.

Nor should they. No position should be safe right now.
