It will be a make or break year for all of the people mentioned above.
Ideally if Braylon is extended on a 1 year incentive laden deal, they will give Sanchez every opportunity to succeed with skill players of Holmes, Edwards, cheaply resigned Keller, Kerley in the slot, and a more polished Hill.
Healthy Revis back, no excuse for Rex's D, which has played pretty well in his abscence.
If they fail to make the playoffs, it will be blown up. This is the reality of the situation like it or not. There is no reason to debate and argue if these people deserve another year, if it is that infuriating to some fans, then they should choose another team.
I'm not advocating for this plan, but based on the facts it is clearly bound to happen.
Good post, and it makes a lot of sense.
This Edwards deal has some nice potential, and the timing of it couldn't be better, Edwards has reached a point where he can no longer create his own market, and truly was not happy away from NY, he can rekindle his career with the Jets, and he certainly has the support of the fan base.
So many potential high rewards, for such little risk. He's still just 29, can still play if healthy, will be extremely cheap, and even though the Sanchez haters won't like it, he DOES support Sanchez and they did have a lot of good chemistry.
The Jets essentially have jump started their off-season plan with a huge piece at very little cost at a position that needed to be addressed. Now they can focus elsewhere, at LB, maybe RB, and TE amongst the top areas.
