#1 Some big names to consider in 2014, trading Revis and our own 1st might be a gamble because we never know how these draftees will pan out. Here are the top prospects for the 2014 draft:
Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M
Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Marqise Lee, WR, USC
#2 Name Sanchez QB and shot down the circus. Give the man the vote of confidence now and stick with him for better or for worse.
Not going to happen. No way you get anything close to decent value with Revis coming off an injury and on an opt-out year. Any team trading significant value for Revis would need to sign him long term - and who would be willing to do that with Revis coming off an injury? Besides, high trade compensation is never available when the player being dealt needs a new contract. The only real trade option would be a player for player deal (in the Bailey for Portis mold).Trade Revis for picks, hopefully a #1 next year
Pouha's not dead weight, but yes, he should be cut since he won't be part of the 2014 run anyway. Sanchez should be part of that group, too.Cut Pace, Scott, Smith, Smith, Pouha, and any other dead weight to trim as much cap space as possible.
Monumentally dumb, in my opinion. Tebow is a recipe for mediocrity. If we are going to take a step back to plan for the future, let's do it right.Announce Tebow as the starter next year, this will give fans something to be excited about for next year, when in reality 2013 is a rebuilding year.
But the general approach of playing for 2014 is exactly right.
Revis is the only true shutdown Corner in the league. Cro is good, but he's definitely not top 5. I'll take a guy with half his physical skills, who is smart, and plays with solid technique and toughness for half the money any day.
Here is what I would do:
Why would any team do that? Also, as far as I know, only St. Louis has 2 #1 draft picks in 2014.Trade this years #1 for 2 #1s next year, if no takers, draft Warmack
Could happen, but I'm not sure if a team would trade for a guy in the last year of his contract, coming off major knee surgery. Maybe they would wrok out a deal that was incentive based (3rd for Revis, 2nd, if he plays 12+ games, 1st if he makes Pro-Bowl, 1st + More if he makes All-Pro team)Trade Revis for picks, hopefully a #1 next year
This will happen.Cut Pace, Scott, Smith, Smith, Pouha, and any other dead weight to trim as much cap space as possible.
Here's the thing. Very few Jets fans would actually be excited about this, most would be quite upset with this.Announce Tebow as the starter next year, this will give fans something to be excited about for next year, when in reality 2013 is a rebuilding year.
Again, seeing as only St. Louis has 2 1st round picks in 2014, I don't really see the Jets ending up with more than 1. Also, Seeing as the Jets are really limited in what they can do in Free Agency, the Jets should expect to have a good amount of compensated picks in 2014 (Greene, Landry, Keller etc are FA this year)This would give us at least 3 first rounders for 2014, possibly 4 which would give us flexibility to move up or down on the board to grab a QB and/or a defensive stud like Clowney. We'd also have a ton of money to spend in free agency for 2014.
If a QB like Barkley or Glennon are sitting there at 9, a teams might want to jump up to grab them. Might not be able to get 2 #1s next year, but could prolly get a 2 and 3 this year and a 1 next year for the 9th pick.
The point is to stockpile as much ammo as possible to be able to move up in 2014 to grab a franchise QB or pass rusher like Clowney.
Jets won do it, makes too much sense. They will make a half assed effort to win next year, go 9-7, maybe squeak into the playoffs. Typical Jets mediocre floundering.
No such thing in the NFL as a rebuilding year unless you're the Cleveland Browns.
