    This spot is likely going to be a huge, gaping hole this season.

    addressing the safety position.

    I thought for sure that we would take a look at Pollard. But I never heard the Jets mentioned with him once. Considering he only got a 1yr deal I am disappointed.

    I think they are going to give Allen and Smith every opportunity to win starting jobs.

    I can definitely see Eric Smith being re-signed, as S depth and especially for ST's. He would probably get a 1 year deal.

    Antontio Allen and Bush will be in the mix as one of the starters, I can see Bush starting.

    FA will remain in play for veteran players still available, and the position figures to be a target again in the draft.

    May i ask a question here ? Why is everyone's garbage better than our own ? Last yr before the draft we signed 2 safeties andd then went into the drsft and took 2 more. It's 1 yr later with both the young safeties we spent draft picks on and managed to provide spot duty in games are still on the roster and ready for their closeup after the stop gaps hired to get them ready have been released.


    Why should the Jets go out and spend valuable cap space on something their already have and have developed to perform?

    I think Michael Huff would be a good choice for FS At 30 he still has a couple of years left to act as a bridge till a long term replacement can be determined. Dawan Landry can take over for his brother.

    so you want to start 2 2nd year safetys who barely played last season and feel they are developed enough to be put into the starting role?

    Well none of us have seen them play enough to be confident of their ability to perform. Neither were high draft choices so although Rex liked them, he did not like them enough to take them earlier in the draft where you would normally get your starters. In most cases later rd draft choices have a ceiling of being capable reserves.

    No, but i would give them the 1st chance to show me they can't do the Job. I would like to start Josh bush at FS and Dawan Landry at SS, or someone like him.

    Why don't you contribute to the thread, such as look over the FA list and come up with some names.

    So according to you, all the starters on your team should be high round draft picks. Why exactly do they have 7 rounds in a draft.

    No, not at all. Just that it is more unusual for starters to come out of the 6th and 7th rd as the 2nd and 3rd. The jets already signed a QB, DT. a OLB and a OL in FA, but they have not yet signed a safety where the need was perceived by most to be as great. And i said that they have value as capable reserves, teams do have 53 players and not just 22 starters.

    allen r bush.. who cares.. lets see what they got in 13, its a trial year before we can start to compete again in 14. if they cant hack it, we use 1 of what our SHOULD be many early draft picks (counting ours and revis trade picks) and no way should we take eric smith back, he is terrible.. He lost as mny gaes in 2011 as sanchez did in 12.

    Yup, our biggest needs now are two safties and one more OLB. So it's OLB Barnes on one side and OLB #9 on the other side.

    We still need an above average QB of course but I think Garrard is a good stop-gap and we don't waste a pick on QB this year. Well, maybe QB Jeff Tuel in the 7th/UDFA

    Someone like Barrett Jones in the 2nd round who can play both center and guard would be an excellent choice for Oline depth/rotation between him, Ducasse, and Colon.

    I like SS Jonathan Cyprien in the 2nd round also, so maybe OLine depth will have to wait.

    Maybe FS in the 3rd, RB Stepfan Taylor in the 4th, Oline depth in the 5th.


    Overall I think we field a pretty good 2013 team. I'm optimistic. We did better in FA than I expected.

    But they did sign a FA safety even if to us fans he's considered a "Bust" already .

    The Jets have signed former Eagle 2nd round pick Jaiquawn Jarrett to a contract


    Jarrett, Jaiquawn S 6-0 196 23 2 Temple

    Lockett, Bret S 6-1 220 26 4 UCLA

    By my count, that's 2 SS and 2 FS on the roster with the draft still to come.
