(19) Ian Rapoport on Twitter: "The #Jets are giving OT Duane Brown a 2-year deal worth $22M, source said. A significant investment in a key position." / Twitter

 

He is 37 but a 5 time pro bowler. Becton's replacement.

He’s never played RT and Fant is much better on the left… 

 

It will be up to the coaching staff what they want to do. At 2 years 22 million he will be in the starting lineup.

He already had a signigicant decline in play last year, allowing 8 sacks. At age 37, a further decline in play is inevitable. Brown did the right thing by waiting for a desperate team.

I think signing him is a good idea for them, but they should really see what they have in Mitchell. 

 

Also, I expect it's really a 1 year deal and 2 years for cap. Somehow, the Jets have eliminated their ample cap space to field a roster that will likely be 3rd in the division, at best.

Jets had $8.9M cap space before this move.  It will be interesting to see how back loaded this contract is.  The only major savings they have is cutting Sheldon Rankins which saves $5M.  How can this team be that awful, have a QB on a rookie contract and still be up against the cap?  🤮 ✈️

Hey now, seen plenty of Bills teams pull this feat off. It's nice now that we have competent people running the show...

They are a historically stupid franchise. 

 

Those idiots passed on OT Evan Neal in the 2022 draft, only to opt for a CB from Cincinnatti (of all places) at #4.  What made it even worse, the Giants were able to draft Neal.

 

What absolute morons!!!

About $60M going to CJ Mosley, Carl Lawson and Corey Davis and John Franklin-Myers.

Not that I'm saying they are bad players just seems a risky plan.

That’s what happens when your HC only knows Defense!

Hmm let me think way back to 2018....

 

FA signings included Chirs Ivory, Vontae Davis, Trent Murphy, Star, Bodine, Newhouse, a rookie QB, no cap money, and finished 6-10....

Moseley was supposed to this huge difference maker for them and I forgot he was even in the league. Davis sucks. I don’t even know who John Franklin Myers is

The Bills weren't awful, having made the playoffs the year before.  Meanwhile they had a lot of dead money in 2018 getting rid of the non-process players.
