Enjoy your morning cup of coffee with the latest articles on the New York Jets. Let the full rebuilding process begin with hopes of a better future.

Ah yes, today is a big day. Hopefully, you all had a wonderful Easter weekend for those that celebrated as the weather, for the most part, was beautiful on Sunday in the city that never sleeps. Today starts a new rebuilding process for the New York Jets as they’ll do everything in their power to focus on getting younger, faster, and more organized for the upcoming season.

Of course, that might not translate to actually winning football games. The truth of the matter is, the Jets have a long way to go before being competitive enough again to contend for the NFL Playoffs. This upcoming season, the Jets probably won’t win more than four, maybe five games tops but the most important thing is building a culture focused on hard work. Below are some of the latest articles on the Jets which an emphasis that yes, the rebuilding process begins now and that patience is key in the grand scheme of things.

In an article written by Rich Cimini of ESPN, he breaks down why head coach Todd Bowles has decided to keep as many distractions away from his team this upcoming season. It’s a great idea to not only limit media interaction with his players but also get everyone realigned at the greater mission. The focus should be on open competitions across the entire team to determine starters, backups, and those that have no place on the final roster. The fewer distractions that are around will mean players focusing on getting better, proving their worth, and ensuring that everyone is all in on the message of working hard.

In an article written by Ethan Greenberg of the New York Jets, he wrote about all the latest picks that top sources on the internet have made for the Jets with their No. 6 overall pick. The Jets could really go a number of ways here but at the end of the day, only general manager Mike Maccagnan and his crew will ultimately know what the final plan is. It makes sense to bolster their defensive secondary but who knows, perhaps Maccagnan takes the best offensive playmaker available when he’s on the clock. Either way, it should hopefully deliver a Week 1 starter ready to produce right off the bat.

In an article written by Joe Lacalandra of the Jets Wire, he wrote a slideshow on the top six players who could be gone at the start of the regular season. Hopefully, wide receiver Eric Decker makes a speedy recovery and can come back to being a dependable receiving option out of the slot. If not, the Jets will have no other choice but to release him which would be a shame since he’s one of the more popular players on the team. At the end of the day, it’s not about popularity but what a player brings to the table. If Decker can’t get the job done after having two major surgeries this offseason then, unfortunately, it would be a wise football move to release him.

Finally, in an article written by Brian Costello of the New York Post, he makes the case as to why the Jets need to absolutely bolster their defensive secondary heavily in this year’s draft. Costello is completely right since they were one of the most abysmal units last season as any quarterback was able to rack up some serious passing yards against them. If you need to brush up on the more popular defensive backs in this year’s draft, definitely check out his piece as he lists the best of the best and ranks them as well.
