Locked on Jets 3/20/18 Episode 373: Changing Expectations

It has been an eventful week for the Jets. Their salary cap space has facilitated a number of additions who will hopefully upgrade the roster moving forward. While these moves are worst discussing, two stand above all others. One was a move the Jets didn't make. Another was one they did. The Jets were unable to land free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins who found his way to the Minnesota Vikings. They were, however, able to trade up to obtain the third overall pick in the upcoming NFL...


Locked on Jets 3/19/18 Episode 372: Jets Trade Up to 3rd in 2018 NFL Draft

It was a big weekend for the Jets. The team made a bold move that changed the complexion of the 2018 NFL Draft. For the price of the sixth overall pick and three second round selections over the next two seasons, the Jets struck a deal with the Indianapolis Colts to acquire the third overall pick in the upcoming Draft. Owning a top three pick, the Jets now look extremely likely to take a quarterback in the hopes of finding a long-term solution at the most important position on the field for...


Locked on Jets 3/16/18 Episode 371: Free Agency Rolls On and Mailbag Questions

The 2018 offseason continues to be active for the Jets. The team made more additions on Thursday. Cornerback Morris Claiborne was brought back into the fold on a one year deal. In addition, the team found a new kicker in Cairo Santos. We also got details about Spencer Long's contract. On the negative side, the Jets lost another free agent. Austin Seferian-Jenkins signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Strikingly, the terms of the contract were not that different from what the Jets had...

Today is Mailbag Thursday on the podcast. Thanks to those who submitted questions. We could not have done the show without you. Apologies to those whose questions we could not get to today. Feel free to ask them next week. On today's show we look at whether the Jets might bring in two free agents to compete as an alternative to Kirk Cousins, whether a drafted quarterback would have the luxury of sitting a full year, how much time Mike Maccagnan has to find a quarterback, which running...

Locked on Jets 3/6/18 Episode 363: The Jets and the Cap

The NFL has set the salary cap for the 2018 league year. Teams had been able to estimate approximately how much cap space they would enter free agency with, but now they know for sure. The Jets knew their room would be vast. It is around $90 million. The lessons of offseasons past have taught us that having cap space doesn't guarantee anything. The money has to be spent smartly. In some ways even having that much room under the cap can be a negative if it is a sign the team lacks talent....

Locked on Jets 3/2/18 Episode 361: Combine Mailbag

This week's podcast mailbag comes a day later than usual. Muhammad Wilkerson and Matt Forte pushed the mailbag from Thursday to Friday. Thanks once again to everybody who submitted questions. I got to as many of them as I could. Apologies to those who sent questions that were unanswered this week. Feel free to send them again next week. Today we look at some of the options for a stopgap placeholder quarterback in the event the Jets do not sign Kirk Cousins, whether the time is now to give...


Locked on Jets 3/1/17 Episode 360: Busy Wednesday

Wednesday was full of action for the Jets. The team cleared around $14 million in salary cap space following a pair of newsworthy events. The Jets released Muhammad Wilkerson, clearing around $11 million. Matt Forte retired, which opened up around $3 million in space. There are no surprises. The departures of Wilkerson and Forte were widely expected. The only questions were the timing and whether Forte would retire before he was released. On today's podcast, we take a look at the moves...


Locked on Jets 2/28/18 Episode 359: A Poor Running Back Philosophy

For close to a decade, it seems like the Jets have had one philosophy at the running back position. They have targeted old, big name running backs. This is not simply a Mike Maccagnan thing. It also happened during the days of Mike Tannenbaum and John Idzik. In 2010, Tannenbaum signed the legendary LaDainian Tomlinson from the Chargers to be what he hoped would be one of the final pieces of a Jets Super Bowl puzzle. Four years later, Idzik brought in former 2,000 yard rusher Chris...

Locked on Jets 2/26/18 Episode 357: Harris Retires; Bortles Stays in Jacksonville

Today's podcast focuses on a couple of pieces of news from the weekend. One deals with the Jets' past. Linebacker David Harris announced his retirement from the NFL. Harris spent ten of his eleven NFL seasons with the Jets. A 2007 second round pick out of Michigan, he was seldom flashy but did his job consistently well for the team. A look at the Jets' recent second round history shows why Jets fans should have a deep appreciation for his contributions to the team. The other piece of...

Locked on Jets 2/21/18 Episode 354: Option Season

It is option season for the Jets. By that I mean the team has to make a number of decisions on whether to keep players or let them go to free agency. Many contracts come with options that allow the Jets to either continue them for another year or let the player go. So far this week the Jets have made three decisions on contract options. They have picked up the option for two, Steve McLendon and Josh Martin, and declined the option of one player, Ben Ijalana, Ijalana will become a free...
