You can say a lot about the New York Jets, and many have. One thing is for sure, they certainly know how to keep things interesting. This offseason has been one of the most interesting, confusing, controversial, and odd offseasons for the New York Jets in recent memory.

First, you had the acquistion of Tim Tebow. Whether a fan of it or not, there is no denying that it was a controversial move. They gave up draft picks that could have been used to fill holes, and although the draft went well, the team still had holes as big as the Lincoln Tunnel after the draft. Those holes have been well documented, depth on the offensive line, blocking TE, veteran WR, and veteran RB. They only made two draft picks at the skilled offensive positions, one has been cut, and one is very raw and unproven.

Mike Tannenbaum has come under fire in recent weeks, due to his lack of moves being made on the offensive side of the football. Tannenbaum, true to form, talked about how nobody is more competitive than him, and how he hasn’t stopped looking for ways to improve the Jets. In an interview with the Associated Press, he alluded to this past weekend, saying that Labor Day Weekend was going to be a “minidraft” for the New York Jets.
