Looks like we have a competition for the #1 draft pick. The Jets hit the reset button this offseason and are dumping any high-paid players. With arguably the worst roster in the NFL, the Jets look to tank hard this season as they need a franchise quarterback. Josh McCown turns 300 years old this year, Bryce Petty looked abysmal in six games last season, and 2016 second round pick (throws up in mouth) Christian Hackenberg can’t manage to find the field, and is reported not being able to complete routine passes in OTA’s. This offense is headed to arguably be one of the worst in recent memory.
Remember the good ol’ days where the Jets were known for having a top-tier defense? It seems as though those days were 20 years ago with the way the 2017 roster is shaping up. Rookie Jamal Adams is looking to start at safety and will be in line for plenty of snaps. Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson are still on the team (for now) and Morris Claiborne was brought in to replace once elite corner Darrelle Revis.
Well, my heart is telling me to pull the trigger and say 0-16, but luckily for this pitiful looking team, the Cleveland Browns are on the schedule. 2017 will be a long season for you Jets fans out there.
