Who knew what LT would do when he got here, most people said he was done too.
Now obviously they will bring in some younger guys via the draft and those guys will compete to play but the idea that the Jets are just going to start a bunch of 25 year old and under players is not accurate. This isn't Jacksonville, you can't just tank a season. The Jets will be more aggressive in FA then people think. That doesn't mean they will give out long term deals but they will pursue the veterans they need to fill the holes on offense and defense and add some veteran stability.
Vets that sign for the vet minimum are usually garbage or strictly 'depth, i hope they don't play' signings. It's very rare that a signing like the Landry one ends up turning out as well as it did.
