Coffee with the Jets: Brandon Marshall no longer a fit in new culture
Enjoy your afternoon cup of coffee with the latest updates on the New York Jets. Gang Green has officially cut wide receiver, Brandon Marshall.

Once-dominant Brandon Marshall no longer a fit in Jets’ culture by Rich Cimini (ESPN)
The Jets will have a young team in 2017, and probably a young quarterback. It would have been a tough position for Marshall, not to mention those around him. His dominant personality can rub people the wrong way, as it did at times last season.
Jets coach Todd Bowles insists he’s ‘not afraid of the unknown’ by Rich Cimini (ESPN)
The New York Jets are in a full-blown rebuilding mode, putting Bowles in a precarious position. With a pre-free agency/pre-draft roster that screams 4-12, it looks like he’s being cast as the setup man for the next coach.

“We just need to play smarter and more disciplined,” he said. “That’s the biggest thing. It’s not a quality to add.

Jets planning to cut WR Brandon Marshall, could Eric Decker be next? by Manish Mehta & John Healy (New York Daily News)

While Hoyer would certainly be a capable backup if the Jets went with one of the young quarterbacks, he would also be able to give them a push in training camp. With neither Petty or Hackenberg being given the starting job, pushing the young players with a guy like Hoyer would be a good move.
Report: Jets to Tender Marcus Williams by John B (Gang Green Nation)
After a successful season as a depth piece in 2015, the Jets asked Williams to step into a more prominent role for 2016. It didn’t go all that well, but this is still a move that makes sense for the Jets.
