Rich Cimini of ESPN.com writes that Drew Brees could be an “intriguing option” for the Jets in the event he becomes available next year.
- Cimini mentions that adding Brees to the Jets’ win-now roster “wouldn’t be the worst idea, as long as he’s healthy.“
- Cimini adds that Brees could be a one- or two-year bridge to first-year QB Bryce Petty.
- Ryan Fitzpatrick is in line to be a free agent and Cimini mentions that Geno Smith will never be the long-term answer for the Jets, which means this is at the very least an idea to keep an eye on.
