Jets wanted Mitch Morse

Recommended Posts

They were comfortable in the $10M per year neighborhood... well, isn’t $11M in the $10M pee year neighborhood? 

 

 

 

Makes it sound like the Jets are spending judiciously in free agency or something. 

 

“Oh, the Bills went $11M. We ere only comfortable at $10.5. Better walk away....”

 

I mean, they gave a friggin ILB $17M per year! ($5M higher than the next closest ILB). They clearly refused to walk away no matter how high the price got. 

 

 

 

 

I highly, highly doubt they walked away from Morse over $1M (and if they did, they’re idiots). I’m guessing Morse chose buffalo.

Glad it worked out for us. Morse is probably the biggest FA signing we have had in quite some time and fills a HUGE need on the OL. The Jets have made some upgrades anyway.

I wonder if they ever realized Paradis was never signing in NY.  Morse was going to be a Bill or a Jet, given his relatively young age, our young QBs, OL needs and $$$.   

 

We got him.  Beane knew this had to happen.

I'm sure we offered a better contract, but Morse does seem like the type who would choose Allen / Buffalo over Darnold / NYC.  And I'm sure this is just Manish trying to save face for the Jets by suggesting the Bills wildly overpaid.

Jets are viewed as a stray away team - how much is the Owner, how much is the GM, how much is the HC = not a desirable destination at all. I'm glad it is not us for once.

I’m glad our FO prioritizes OL over LB and RB. 

 

EXACTLY!  VERY WELL SAID!

 

The Mosley deal was insane.  Bells contract is a lot of money for a RB, especially for one who has had issues with injuries, suspensions, and hasn't played since 2017.  Would I have been upset if either of those guys were signed by Beane, no.  But I am sure as heck a lot happier we signed the guys we did instead of those players.

 

Bell and Mosley deals will be issues for the Jets unless they suddenly figure out how to draft great.  Lets say I am not holding my breath on that one.

It's interesting the early leaks about who the Bills were interested in, Paradis at C and James at TE.  Meanwhile Beane got who he really wanted....

How could this be?   I seem to recall a certain thread currently go on around here with a few posters mocking that Morse was no big deal of a signing, no top FA's want to come here, and no one else wanted Morse but us.  Im so confused 🤔

A veteran C is the best addition we could give Josh Allen. 

 

I also love how these WR signings fit with this offence. Brown and Foster are going to stretch the field vertically, Beasley will get one on one matchups in the slot because there will be a spy on Allen. Give me one of the top 3 TEs and this unit will be difficult to stop.

For some reason, everything I want to express today is in the form of a GIF. This thread is no different. To the Jets fans out there:

I think Morse and Nsekhe are going to be really good for us.  

I’m curious where Nsekhe is going to play

Word is that Paradis walked away from the Jets because he was sick of waiting on them, who were waiting on Bell.

 

So they screwed themselves with both Centers in order to sign a RB.

Yet they gave Mosley 5 billion dollars. 

 Lol, right? 

 

They were willing to make CJ Mosley, a good ILB but not among the top tier IMO, the highest paid ILB by nearly $5 million. They clearly weren’t willing to walk away no matter how high the price got. They basically gave him a QB contract ($85 million).

 

But they werent willing to make Mitch Morse the highest paid C by $125,000...., who I’d argue is in a higher tier at his position than Mosley at his (it’s easier to argue Morse is a top tier C, than Mosley a top tier ILB). 

 

 

I am actually very very happy that the Jets didn’t decide to get into a bidding war over Morse though. Good thing the Bills locked him up before Paradis made his decision, otherwise that may have been what happened. Mike Maccagnan seems desperate as hell to try and keep his job.

Perception of Jets FO has been shaky at best during all of FA. Between Morse and paradis not being interested, Barr bailing and saying he was sick to his stomach when he found out they offered the most money, Moseley trying like hell to stay in Baltimore until they offered so much above market he couldn’t say no, Bell waiting forever trying to go anywhere else but no one else bidding, Andre Roberts comments about how he was treated...
