Then, we do have the Darrelle Revis contract. You would like to think that he will not cause a problem in 2013, coming off of injury. But, you have to wonder if he still might. He may be looking for an extension so he isn’t playing on a walk year. Maybe he does hold out? How does the new GM deal with the Revis contract, when the time comes? Does he consider a trade, in order to start rebuilding this team? As we have said before, it has to be considered, and you all know that this will be a major issue, especially to Jets fans.

And we have a lot of unrestricted free agents to think about. Does he figure out a way to bring back LaRon Landry? What about fan favorite Mike DeVito? Do they let him walk off the Jets line? Braylon Edwards wants to be back, does the GM oblige? Brandon Moore and Matt Slauson are two guys, and major players on the offensive line. Can they afford to let Slauson go in favor of Ducasse? What about Moore? These are important calls to make.

What about Dustin Keller? We know how the quarterback feels about him, but the fact is he has been more than injury prone. Is it time to let DK walk? Don’t forget about Shonn Greene. Whether we like him or not, he did come off his second straight thousand yard season. Do the Jets move ahead with him, or is it time to move in another direction? Not to be out done, Yeremiah Bell is an unrestricted free agent as well. Can they bring him back in addition to Landry? Will one come back for a hometown discount? These are crucial decisions that will have to be made quickly.

It’s definitely taking some time to line up this new general manager. Let’s hope they get the right guy, because it’s not going to be easy.
