Nothing beats a great cup of coffee and the latest news and updates on the New York Jets. Looks like several other teams beat the Jets to the punch before free agency officially begins today.
When it’s so early in the morning, sometimes a cup of hot coffee is the first thing that helps get the day started off right. Especially when it’s accompanied by some of the best reading material on the New York Jets from the top internet sources around.
In an article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he wrote about how some of the top quarterback options are quickly being snatched up by teams even before free agency officially begins at 4 PM Eastern Time today. Quarterback Brian Hoyer is off to the San Francisco 49ers while Mike Glennon is seemingly heading to the Chicago Bears.
If that ends up happening, Jay Cutler will probably be looking for a new home and hopefully, the Jets stay far away. It’s in their best interest if they can’t find a quality veteran option, later on, today, to wait it out and see what other options are available over time.
In an article written directly by ESPN.com News Services, wide receiver Brandon Marshall didn’t wait long at all to find a new home after being released by the Jets by signing a two-year deal with the New York Giants.

It makes sense since he now doesn’t have to relocate and is entering a much better situation to end the final few years of his prolific career. Say what you want about Marshall but he’ll be missed and well, one day the Jets will regret cutting him due to everything he brought to the table.
In an article written by Ethan Greenberg of the New York Jets, he wrote an interesting piece on how new offensive coordinator John Morton isn’t committed to any particular offensive system just yet. Morton is known to have a high-octane passing attack but the Jets don’t have such a system in place. Heck, they don’t even have a franchise quarterback yet that can really air it out, let alone, a high quality receiving corps that can deliver a plethora of touchdowns.
Either way, Morton has his work cut out for him with how the Jets are rebuilding for a better future. It looks like depending on what Gang Green does in free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft, will easily determine what kind of system Morton will install. Hopefully, it’ll at the very least score points, which is something the Jets severely lacked in doing last season.
Finally, in a mock draft written by Carl Cockerham of With The First Pick, he has the Jets selecting cornerback Sidney Jones out of Washington. It’s no secret that the Jets need some major help in their defensive secondary as last season, opponents aired it out easily against them. Hopefully, someone like Jones can step right in and take care of business. By the looks of it, he’s aggressive, smart, and would bring back that no-nonsense defensive attitude that the Jets sorely missed in 2016.
