Wow! Magic Mike and the Jets are moving up three sports in the draft for a hefty price heading to Indianapolis, in a blockbuster deal. ———————————————————
The Jets are clearly set on finally finding a franchise QB after signing both Teddy Bridgewater and Josh McCown on one year pacts, and now trading up for this.
I personally love this trade for both teams.
For Indy, they’re in a spot where teams are begging for QB’s as they already have theirs in Andrew Luck. They’re looking for depth, not star power - so only moving down three spots in the top 10, and acquiring three second rounders is huge for that team’s development.
For the Jets, I love it. They brought back McCown less for playing and more to be a mentor/coach for the young guy, and Bridgewater to see if he could get his career back on track and give him some value. And if the Rookie QB isn’t ready by year 2, they could easily bring Teddy back if he has a sufficient season. Anyone who says the package is outrageous, or they traded “too early” is wrong. First of all, you can’t compare the trade up packages in this draft to others because of the big QB class this one has. Second of all, if the Jets didn’t go out and get this pick - another team like Buffalo could’ve easily slid in and took it. —————————————————
All around, I’m a big fan and it’ll be super interesting to see how the draft unfolds.
After ten awesome seasons in football, RB Danny Woodhead has hung up the pads at 33. Woodhead was known as one of the toughest, best pass catching RB’s in the league for his whole career, despite his incredibly small stature. He played for the Jets, Patriots, Chargers and Ravens leading to his retirement. Woodhead was just released by Baltimore and was receiving interest from many teams, but after multiple knee tears in the past half decade, it was time for the fan-favorite to move on. Congrats on a great career, Danny!
Ok guys here is something to think about. Teddy got us to a division title with our group Sam Bradford set a record and had his best season then no name Case Keenum comes in a lights up the league all with this group. We bring in former Eagles QB's coach DeFalippo who coached the league MVP had he not gotten hurt he would have won it over Tom Brady then he coached Nick Foles to the Super Bowl MVP. We are bringing in a guy who has had about 25 TD passes in each of his last 4 seasons along with 4,000+ yards in his last 3 seasons. He did it with a bad organization and not the best team. Now if no name Keenum, barley any experienced Teddy and injury prone Sam all can have career years with us. What can we do with a guy of Kirks talent!?! We have all the players in the Cook, Murray RBs duo. The Theilan and Diggs duo (prob the best WR duo in the game) Kyle Roudolph, a decent o-line and a historic #1 defense. I think we can honestly win the Bowl next year!
