The New York Jets are widely expected to take Justin Fields with the second overall pick, but could the Jets yet spring a surprise and retain Sam Darnold?
The 2020/21 season is now officially over for the New York Jets and for many reasons it was just a horror show. They face another offseason of major moves and potential big trades.
If Darnold goes on to succeed in a better situation on another team, then that would not surprise anyone at all.
Both teams have opponents coming up that struggled mightily defending the passing game and it will be interesting to see if they’ll show off as they’re expected against the Giants and the Browns.
The Jets lost five games by seven points or less last season, while winning one. Easily a better team than last year, playoffs are a realistic goal if they can fix issues at secondary.
The Jets have not made the playoffs since 2010, and only really looked close in 2015 when they finished 10-6.
One of the key factors in how teams conduct their business is based on how much cap space they have. The NFL have raised the base salary cap for each team from $177,200,000 last year to $190,000,000 for the 2019 season.
Once again the head coach merry-go round has been and gone.
