After discussions with team owner Christopher Johnson, general manager Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles this week at the NFL league meetings, it is clear the Jets brass is happy with how it has set itself up at quarterback for 2018.
The team quickly pivoted to Plan B at the position after missing out on free agent Kirk Cousins. The Jets re-signed Josh McCown, added Teddy Bridgewater then traded up to No. 3 in the draft, where they believe they can land a long-term answer at the position.
Put simply, the draft pick is the investment, Bridgewater is a lottery ticket and McCown is the insurance policy.
Bridgewater is a big question mark. He suffered a major knee injury two years ago, and it remains unclear just how healthy he is. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said their team doctors had concerns still about Bridgewater’s knee.
The Jets have not revealed their plans for how much work Bridgewater will get this spring or summer. It is logical to expect him to be limited during OTAs and minicamp then ramp things up in training camp.
The advantage we will have is we’ll have two weeks of training where we can’t go on the field, it’s just in the meeting room, and we’re gonna get that extra minicamp, which will be right up to the draft, so it will be a great way for Davis to sorta showcase what Womens Zack Kassian Jersey he can do.
Ah, that extra minicamp. The Giants get one because Shurmur is a newly hired head coach and it comes April 24-26. It is voluntary, but the vast majority of the players on the roster will be in attendance. Webb will be there and will get plenty of work in a camp that runs smack into the evening of April 26, the first round of the draft.
We’re gonna take in any information we can up to that time we’re on the clock, really, Shurmur said. I don’t want to make this sound like it’s a showcase for Webb, but as a guy we’re interested in seeing, he’s certainly gonna get his fair share of the reps.
Authentic Youth Eric Fehr Jersey Giants co-owner John Mara kicked off these annual meetings with a bang when, referring to Beckham, he declared no one is untouchable coming off a 3-13 season. That certainly created a firestorm and did indicate the Giants would listen to offers for Beckham, even as Mara insisted the Giants are not shopping Beckham and, in fact, want to get him signed to a long-term contract 鈥?as long as he meets the standard of behavior the team has for him.
