Jets HC Todd Bowles admitted that they will have a “tough decision” to make in the coming weeks regarding their starting quarterback job.
“We’ll see how the preseason goes,” Bowles said, via the New York Post. “Like I said, I’ll make my decision when it happens. I’m not going to jump to any conclusions after one game. I’m going to take my notes and watch practice and compare with the coaches and we’ll come up with a decision. It’s a tough decision. We’ve got three good players and we’re happy to have them.”
- Field Yates of ESPN reports that $10 million of Tom Brady‘s $14 million base salary for the 2018 season was converted to a signing bonus as part of his new restructured contract.

- In 2019, Brady’s cap figure will increase by $5 million up to $27 million.
- Mike Reiss believes Phillip Dorsett‘s job is safe for the start of the season, but he isn’t ruling out the possibility that New England could trade for someone and upgrade at the position.
- Reiss currently lists Chris Hogan, Dorsett, Eric Decker and Cordarrelle Patterson as the Patriots’ top receivers.
- After that, Reiss considers Kenny Britt, Riley McCarron, Braxton Berrios and Devin Lucien to all be question marks.
- Regarding the Patriots’ tight end position, Reiss views Rob Gronkowski as the obvious starter followed by Dwayne Allen and Jacob Hollister as a “2A/2B situation.”
- Reiss says that veteran CB Jason McCourty is on the roster bubble, as his lack of special teams ability could force the team to consider other options at the position.
