So am I right in thinking that the Jets are getting
TB's 2013 1st
and 4 compensatory picks, 2 per year.
If that's true than the Jets have 20 draft picks over the next two years.
Meanwhile, New York is positioning itself well for the 2014, when the Jets are expected to receive four compensatory picks to go along with the Buccaneers' likely third-round choice, meaning the Jets will have a bounty of picks to try to turn around their roster.
Just two picks? TWO?!
I am a very optimistic person, but the chances are this will go down as the worst trade in history. We will not know until we draft the players, and then years later, but the law of averages says we will not get back anything close to his impact.
I'll be hoping and praying those picks turn into something good, but man, just two?! Wow. To return the impact, we'd need a HIGH impact player with one of those 1st rounders. And in today's NFL, that's QB. Wow... no way to tell yet, but not impressed.
Okay... well, that's better. I've been a 30+ year fan of this team, but if all we got for him was 2 picks, only one of which was a 1, I would've been pretty close to giving up on this club. At least there's some light there. Winners never give up their best for nothing... if they give them up, they get back in return. Glad we'll at least have more chances to get something good.Meanwhile, New York is positioning itself well for the 2014, when the Jets are expected to receive four compensatory picks to go along with the Buccaneers' likely third-round choice, meaning the Jets will have a bounty of picks to try to turn around their roster.

Expecting the Jets to get 4 comp picks next year as a result of the free agent defections this year.
So next year Jets have their normal 1-7 picks
Additional pick from Tampa (likely a 3)
Plus expected to get 4 comp picks.
Thats 12 total picks in 2014 with a ton cap space coming off the books for free agents.
