Some other notes about the Big Apple:
- Before yesterday̵7;s defeat to the Jets to the Captain, ESPN’s Rich Cimini gave an “inside story” of why the organization would turn over MVP and future champions Patrick mahomes in the 2017 draft. There are many reasons for the decision: Jets has invested in it Josh McCown As their bridging midfielder, there is still some optimism that Christian Hackenberg might work, former GM Mike Maccagnan has an eye on midfield class in 2018 (including Darnold), and organizations are much more infatuated with their ultimate choice, safety Jamal Adams. Before the draft, however, Mahomes thought he could end up in New York. “I definitely think there is interest there,” Mahomes said. “Whenever you do those visits, you know they’re pretty interested in due diligence. I certainly thought there was interest there. “
- While we have heard a similar emotion throughout the past few weeks, SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano reiterated that the Jets are not expected to fire the head coach. Adam Gase mid season. “They really don’t want to do that,” a source told Vacchiano. “At some point they may have to. But they know that a mid-season coaching change doesn’t change their situation. I think they’ll hold out as long as they can. “ Vacchiano cites many reasons why it makes sense for Jets to keep Gase, including the head coach acting as a “lightning rod” while distracting the general manager. Joe Douglas‘Shaky first season with organization.
- Safety Marcus mayeThe rookie rookie deal is coming to an end and Cimini believes he may be keeping an eye on one that will pay him around $ 7 million per season. Consequently, Cimini reports that rival teams believe the 27-year-old could be part of the team’s fire-selling plan. Reporters had a similar feeling about Bradley McDougaldEven though impending free agent safety has landed on IR.
- In the same article, Cimini recounts an anecdote from 2018, when the Jets “canned” Bills requiring QB by moving from 6th to 3rd place in a deal with Colts. This move allowed the Jets to choose Darnold, Buffalo’s highest-rated QB. In fact, Bills were very unhappy with the deal, they refused to negotiate with Indy about the rest of the draft. Buffalo finished the deal from number 11 to number 7, and they made the pick Josh Allen.
