Enjoy your afternoon cup of coffee with the latest news on the New York Jets. Gang Green finally found a free agent replacement for cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to everyone that celebrates as today, perhaps some Irish coffee would be more fitting than regular for fans of the New York Jets. Either way, enjoy the holiday as the Jets actually made a smart free agency move yesterday.

In an article written by Rich Cimini for EPSN, he broke down the Jets signing free agent cornerback Morris Claiborne. The Jets are desperate to add some new talent to their defensive secondary since it got torched all season long in 2016. If Claiborne can stay healthy, he would be an absolute beast on defense but again, it’s one big if. He’s a bit injury prone but hopefully, the Jets get lucky and are able to get the same cornerback that was a solid defender before he consistently got hurt.

In an article written by Jordan Ranaan and Adam Schefter for ESPN, free agent quarterback Geno Smith has found a new home with the New York Giants. Big Blue is taking a chance on him as a backup with hopes of turning his career around for the better. Coming off a torn ACL injury and his past, Smith has a lot of work ahead of him to prove his worth but either way, wish him the very best on his new team.

In an article written by Eric Allen for the New York Jets, he breaks down why analyst Todd McShay believes all the top first-round quarterbacks heading into the 2017 NFL Draft aren’t of high value. It’s all a matter of opinion but the truth of the matter is, it’s important to know the difference between hope and reality.

Of course, these quarterbacks have fans filled with hope that they can turn into franchise players right off the bat. Reality says that even top quarterbacks like DeShaun Watson or Mitch Trubisky might not take the NFL by storm come next season. McShay believes they’re late, possibly even second-round talent. Should be interesting to see how both their respective careers pan out once they get drafted.

Finally, in an article written by Josh Alper for NBC Sports, he broke down the terms of the free agent acquisition of defensive tackle Mike Pennel. This free agent signing by the Jets has thrown some red flags in the mix since he’s been suspended twice by the NFL for violating their substance abuse policy. If he can get his act together, Pennel could be solid depth on the Jets defensive line. This is another classic case of a low risk/high reward move by the Jets if everything pans out as planned. If not, the Jets won’t lose much.
