Posted 27 Jan 2017Source: Jets re-work Ryan Clady's contract
1/27/2017 10:28:30 AM
The New York Jets eventually face a decision on the future of left tackle Ryan Clady, but the team bought itself sometime with a contract reworking that actually took place in December, Field Yates of ESPN reports citing a source.
Clady, who started eight games for the team in 2016, was scheduled to have a $2.5 million roster bonus due in mid-February, which would have put the clock on team management to decide whether or not to move on from the former All-Pro lineman, who was previously due a $7.5 million base salary for 2017, none of which was guaranteed.
Under the new terms, Clady is no longer due a roster bonus, with that $2.5 million instead being folded into his base salary, bringing that total to $10 million for 2017, with an additional $1 million available in incentives. None of that money is guaranteed until Week 1 of the regular season, at which point base salaries for all vested veterans become guaranteed.
Clady’s season was cut short because of a rotator cuff injury, as injuries have limited him to a total of just 27 of 64 total games since the start of the 2013 season. While Clady would still seem like a long shot to be retained for 2017 with a $10 million base salary, the Jets have afforded themselves more time to evaluate his health and performance.

New York Jets: Mitch Trubisky, QB, North Carolina
I've had Leonard Fournette slotted here for a while now, but only because neither of the top two quarterbacks were available. There have been reports that the Jets are high on Mitch Trubisky, and I don't think there would be any smoke screens prior to the end of the regular season. Trubisky is accurate and happens to release the ball quickly, so he'll appeal to some teams who will look past his flaws. Perhaps New York will be that team, and understandably so, given how much the Jets need a quarterback.
New York Jets: Courtland Sutton, WR, SMU
Given all of the problems Brandon Marshall caused in the locker room, I can't imagine him being back with the team next year. With that in mind, the Jets will need to find a No. 2 receiver to play across from Eric Decker.
New York Jets: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
The Jets have to address both positions in their secondary. Cornerback help is more important, as Darrelle Revis has regressed into one of the worst players at his position in the entire league
Round 4 No pick
I like the round 1 and 3 picks. not big on round 2. we have WR talent with enunwa, anderson, peake, and jalin behind decker. so even if marshall goes I don't think we need a replacement. also there is still hope for smith. he'll have 1 more year to prove he isn't a bust. that's already 6 WRs no need to add more. would rather see us go o-line in the 2nd round like Julie'n Davenport, OT, it's a much bigger need then WR for us and we could trade back a few spots and get an extra pick and still land him. getting a QB means we cna have a competition with out 3 young Qbs (hack, petty and trubisky) and ride it out and see what happens. I did really want fournette but we need to build something at QB right away plus forte isn't going anywhere due to his cap hit and powell has proven to be a very great RB. the 2 of them will be fine for this season and powell has like 3 years left in him IMO so RB isn't a huge need
Posted 6 Jan 2017Jets source: Hackenberg will 'never make it'
The mystery around quarterback Christian Hackenberg isn't really a mystery at all. There are two factions on One Jets Drive. One believes that it will take a long time for the second-round pick to develop into a possible contributor. The second more damning faction believes that Hackenberg won't ever be the solution, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
One Jets starter simply rolled his eyes and shook his head recently when asked whether Hackenberg was worth a second-round pick. "No," the player said.
"He will never make it," another Jets source said. "Never."
That's a harsh and unfair assessment for a player who’s only been a professional for eight months, but opinions about Hackenberg in the building are strong … and similar. An ESPN report last week cited a team source claiming that the rookie couldn't throw the ball into the ocean.
"I guess it depends which ocean," Woody Johnson cracked on Thursday. "Maybe it was a small ocean. The EPA describes that as an ocean. … Anyway, no, that's not funny."

Enunwa - with amrshall hurting and decker missing most of the year enunwa stepped up into the starter role and led the team with 857 yards and was 2nd in catches 1 behind marshall. not bad for a team with shitty QB play and no l-line
Anderson - as an UDFA shined when he had chances. looks like the deep threat we were hoping smith would be. 587 yards and 42 catches
RBs - powell and forte both had over 1000 scrimmage yards for the season. they combined for 2,186 yards and 100 catches (349 rush attempts). powell was tied for 2nd in receptions on the team and forte was 5th. powell averaged 5.5 YPC
Folk - didn't miss a FG all year. all his "misses" we blocked
Harris - despite playing a more limited role, he led the team in tackles again with 95 (63 solo)
Leonard Williams - led the team with 7 sacks in his 2nd year and was great against the run had 8 TFL resulting in -11 yards and forced 2 fumbles. was out best player on defense
QB - all 3 of them. geno, petty, and fitz were terrible. they combined for 16TDs and 25INTs sacked 35 times
TEs -just awful all year. we ended with 2 TEs that weren't even on the opening day roster
O-line - was aweful. no run block or pass blocking. we played 7 different setups on the line. injuries didn't help but overall line play was poor
wilk/richardson - lack of production, benching for missing meetings, locker room issues. this duo was supposed to put up 20 sacks and wreak havok and were pretty invisible all year outside a few plays.
Revis - age hit him hard. he had an aweful season. was burned so many times and no longer puts fear in QBs
Special teams - while folk and lac were good, our returners and coverage teams were aweful. we need an explosive player on special teams
pass offense 27th
pass D 17th
net points 28th (-134)

fitz - 20/30 210 yards 2 TDs 0 turnovers his bets game of the season
Powell - 22 for 122 on the ground (5.5YPC) added in 3 catches for 15 yards and a TD. powell was a stud the last 4 games
enunwa - leading WR with 5 for 81 yards including a nice 50+ yard catch
Defense as a whole - held the bills to 10 point 7 of which was garbage time with 3 mins left in the game. held them to 230 yards and forced 3 turnovers. 3 sacks isn't bad either. revis got his 1st INT of the season
Offensive line - opened holes for powell and only allowed 1 sack.
none - hard to pick a dud in a agme where we dominated and had no turnovers.
