    We would still have Seattle's first this year and ours next year which is still enough to build. Watson would be the best Jets QB ever as soon as he puts on the uniform, all the years searching for a franchise QB and we could have the opportunity to get one without taking a flyer in the draft or FA again... New coach, Watson plus Allen Robinson and a beefed up line, maybe Najee Harris with the #24... Instant turnaround.

    And how should we build the team?Darnold is arguably the worst QB in the NFL...Waiting another year to find a QB helps nothing...We will have this exact question next year only with less options.

    Watson isn’t going anywhere his cap hit is astronomical!!! They will make amends and let him be apart of the hiring process for the coach.

    I think he gets traded, his cap hit isn't an issue as the new team takes his contract obviously. He's more than worth the deal he signed.

    They have no plans of interviewing Bienemy which is who he wants.

    Doesn’t work like that in the NFL because of the dead money. It’s around 25 mil dead money cap space..

    You build the trenches and add weapons and address the secondary.

    The QB may be important but is only one piece of the puzzle.

    David Carr was a great QB coming out of college and his team failed to protect him.

    After getting pounded week after week he just wasn't the same guy anymore.

    You are correct, I apologize but if they take a QB with our second they will have a cheap QB for years to come. Not to mention I found this in an article:

    Trading Watson would not add much damage to the salary cap in 2021

    As it stands, Watson is set to count $15.94 million against the cap in 2021. $5.4 million of that is the prorated signing bonus. The remaining cap hit is Deshaun Watson’s $10.54 million guaranteed salary.

    As that $10.54 million in salary would transfer to the team acquiring Watson, the Texans would only have the $21.6 million in dead money from the signing bonuses acceleration. Therefore, trading Watson adds just $5.66 million to the Texans’ salary cap for Watson this season. The Texans are already projected to be $17.8 million over the 2021 salary cap, so they would need to be prepared to free up nearly $25 million in cuts and restructures if they trade Watson.

    If we could get Watson for those 3 picks and Darnold, I'd do it in a NY minute, but I don't see that being enough, and I can't see Watson wanting to come here, either. We'd probably have to hire Bieniemy to have any chance, and maybe even sign Robinson or Godwin and Thuney/Scherff, before he'd consider it. Then the Texans would probably balk at the trade.

    Thanks for the break down. I wasn’t exactly sure on the exact numbers. I also think that cap hit if for 4-5 years... that’s quite a while to have that on the books...

    So here’s a question what’s the compensation Texans would want? I’m thinking it’s 2 firsts and a second. In that case we might as well trade that to the Jags for Lawrence who is a better version of Watson and he’d be on a rookie deal.

    It was reported they wanted 3 firsts but I think our #2 isn't just a first so maybe our #2 plus Seattle's first next year and our #34 this year. Even if we had to throw in a couple of pics unless we make it more desirable to come here it may be pointless because he can choose his destination.

    I just don’t see it. Like I said before I think the make amends by letting him feel he helped choose the coach.

    If they schedule an interview with Bienemy maybe but that's reportedly who he prefers and the Texans are the only team in the market for a coach that didn't want an interview. Seems like a slap in the face.

    No way we can afford to throw in more picks. That's why I don't think it happens. I think they'd want 4-5 #1 picks or 3-1sts and 3-2nds.

    Juju is a big upgrade over Perriman, but I wonder how much money his antics have cost him? Maybe not much, because he played pretty well tonight.

    gents, we need to build the dam team up. OL, ILB, OLB, CB, WR, maybe a TE and RB. Not to mention all the FA that will be walking out the door... this team needs a major infusion of talent across the board. Going balls to the wall is a pipe dream, JD isn't going to do that. if anything, he may stay with SAM, trade down and stock up on picks again...

    This x100.

    Thuney would have been a Jet last year if the scumbag Pats didn't tag him at the eleventh hour. IIRC, his wife was liking tweets of him coming to NY. He would really strengthen our OL as the guard spots are the weakest link. I'm drooling just thinking about running left...
