The Bills signed Terrell Owens to a 1 year, $6.5 Million dollar contract today. Owens will join Lee Evans in what becomes one of the better WR corps in the division. Now the Jets will have 4 opportunities to deal with two of the most talented, controvertial WR’s in the league in Moss & Owens.
Rex Ryan and the Jets will most certainly put a full court press on making sure their pass rush & the secondary have plenty of depth going into this season. Gang Green’s weakness last season needs to become their strength going forward.
The biggest need this offseason is to instill a philosophy of ball control to keep the offenses of the AFC East off the field. The Pats, Bills & Dolphins will all have firepower. The Jets now have some work to do. The pass rush should improve under Ryan, but the running game needs to be this teams focus.
The Jets have a brutal schedule for ’09 and will need to be creative to make an impact this year. The offensive line is the best in the conference and should be the focal point of this squad. The Jets should bulk up on both sides of the ball and focus on being the aggressor. Edwards, Brady and Pennington need to eat a lot of dirt if the Jets stand a chance. Revis & Sheppard will have to earn their money this year as well.
Offensively, Gang Green will need another burner in this draft. Either Maclin or Harvin should be the focus in the first round depending on their pro days… This offseason has already become a dog fight! Would you expect any less from this division?
