Jets

  • Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News believes that finding an edge-rusher is the Jets’ largest priority in the draft in order to keep Sheldon Richardson at his natural position at outside linebacker.
  • While HC Todd Bowles said he would like to re-sign NT Damon Harrison, he admitted that it would be hard to bring him back if another team offers a high-paying contract.
  • Mehta envisions Harrison commanding a contract that would pay in the $4-5 million range.
  • The Jets could save $8 million in cap space without accumulating any dead money by cutting CB Antonio Cromartie.
