I'd have been surprised if he made the 53. He likely won't be picked up, so we can easily sign him after week 1. We're deep along the D-line so this really isn't a surprise

Ok that is over

Back in April, the rumors were that the Jets were asking for a high 3rd for Richardson. They've gotta be happy with the trade.

Shame about Mauti, he was really developing into one hell of a player. Sucks. Always liked him. Can't say I am surprised by anyone so far, except maybe McDaniel. Thought he was solid

It's about as deep as the kiddy pool...

We have 3 DTS now: Rankins, Onyamata and Davison. Unless I'm forgetting someone we don't have much depth at all...

True. Nothing behind Davison whatsoever.

Yeah but several of the DE's are experienced with and have the ability to move inside. Also, 2 of those DT's are capable of kicking out to the edge. It appears to me that the defense has been deliberately built to be versatile at all 3 levels. I think traditional roles aren't going to matter much, it will truly be putting your best players on the field together.

I figured the plan was to step lightly on his pinky toe, stick him on IR, and pay him a lil so he won't go anywhere else. Guess they did that with Fuller instead.

I truly believe McDaniel will be back, they just didn't want to guarantee his contract. If he made the 53 his contract would've been guaranteed for a dt that would've been fourth in the depth.
