Yesterday was a big day for John Idzik and his team with the New York Jets, landing Chris Johnson, the playmaker that they have coveted since they learned he might become available. Idzik tried to trade for him, patiently waited, and in the end, got his man.

Jets’ fans are a boisterous bunch, aren’t we? We all have an opinion. It’s fun to watch #JetsTwitter go at a topic, because everyone has a passionate opinion about said topic. We love our team and love debating football.

So, I asked for some reactions on Twitter to the signing of Chris Johnson. Here is what I got, first from Connor Rogers:

Couldn’t agree more. A great move, cheap, that improves the position. Here is what Corey had to say:

 

A New York Rangers based account gave us the same thoughts:

Our good buddy Hans chimed in later on in the evening last night:

 

Jude left us the following Tweet:

The last tweeet came from Rangenius:

 

Not an unfair opinion to have. Many do think that Idzik will draft a cornerback after not signing a big name in free agency. I still say that Dimitri Patterson is worth paying attention to, could be the sleeper of the off-season. But, to be unhappy with the CB situation is a fair take.

However, it is a rare situation when Jets’ fans agree. It seems that most of the fan base is on board with bringing in Chris Johnson. It’s a good move, and one fans should be excited about.

    I’m not overly excited by the signing, even though the price was right, and it is a good signing. The risk in this move is minimum, but so could the results. There are a few questions about how much he has left, and more then a few about his work ethic. I hope all the kid needs is a change of venue to rejuvenate his career and correct his work ethic. If he is anywhere near the back he once was, it’ll be a super addition to the Jet backfield.

      Fair enough Paul.
