ESPN’s Adam Scheter reports that there is some “disenchantment” within the Jets’ organization regarding GM John Idzik and his conservative approach towards acquiring talent during the offseason.
Schefter specifically pointed to the Jets unwillingness to be more aggressive at targeting upgrades at the cornerback and receiver positions.
The Jets had an opportunities to sign guys like WR DeSean Jackson, CB Darrelle Revis, and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but they didn’t come away with any of these players.
As things stand right now, the Jets have $24,303,894 in available cap space to work with, according to the NFLPA. However, their depth at these positions is extremely limited, so you can see why there would be some second guessing about Idzik’s offseason approach.
It will be interesting to see if these concerns lead to Idzik being considerably more aggressive next year.
