The Jets do not understand the dynamics behind player relations at all. Literally not one bit about how the team's interactions with it's players effect future events. Probably the biggest single systemic blunder is the repetitive trading up for players in the draft. When you trade up for a player in the draft you dramatically shift the center of power in the relationship. First, you tell the player that he is worth more than other players selected around his position because you spent extra resources to move up and take him there. Second, you have increased the team's investment in that player making the consequences of losing them much more dire, whether that be by injury, failure to develop or eventual loss in free agency. Third, the consequences of the two cases above make it much harder to negotiate from an even perspective with that player. Fourth, other players look at all of the effects above and peg themselves against that player's value, increasing the costs you need to pay to sign them as well. Every good 1st Grade teacher knows that if you show particular favoritism to an individual there will be group dynamics that quickly move beyond the predictable sustainable model. The Jets could use somebody with the smarts of a good 1st Grade teacher over-seeing their player acquisition, retention and management systems at this point because the Jets classroom has been out of control for a couple of decades now.
