#1) No big money contracts! He did try to give Hightower big dollars (which would have been a mistake IMO), but even with that deal he wasn't going to give any guaranteed money after 2018. #2) Re-Signed/Tendered all of our young guys Nothing wrong with investing in players that have developed behind the scenes in your program for a few seasons. Guys like Wesley Johnson are going to receive significant playing time next year on a one year prove it deal. Sometimes you can really discover talent with this approach (see AJ Bouye) #3 Dumped Veterans who would stunt the growth of young guys What is the point of having Nick Mangold on the team this year? I'd rather see if Wesley Johnson could do the job. What is the point of having Brandon Marshall on the team this year? Let's see if Quincy Enunwa can be a #1 WR in this league. What is the point of having Darrelle Revis? Well... that was a no brainer. Hopefully Decker is released soon as well. In fact the only guy I'd like to keep around is Harris, and just for his leadership traits. #4 Beachum/Claiborne Two low risk signings for young players with upside. Beachum is locked in for two years and although if Claiborne is only on a 1 year prove-it deal if he plays well and cashes out next offseason the Jets will be set up with a nice comp pick. #5 Cap flexibility for next year The Jets could have some free agents to lock up next year, and its nice to know that they will have the cap space to do so. In fact I don't believe the Jets have any big money on the books in 2019 ( The year we can cut Wilkerson). So there it is Jets fans......2019 we can make some noise if we can have a few good drafts over the next couple of years and find that elusive franchise QB.
