The New York Jets do not seem to be a realistic fit for expected
free agents-to-be Michael Vick and Alex Smith and Seattle Seahawks quarterback
Matt Flynn, according to Brian Costello of The New York Post.
Because the team won’t have much to spend on the quarterback
position, Costello says that cheaper veteran alternatives, including Matt
Moore, Tavaris Jackson, Jason Campbell or David Garrard would appear to be more
He adds that the Jets could also elect to draft a
quarterback with their second or third round pick. It is unlikely New York
takes a signal caller with their first pick, No. 9 overall, due to the lack of
elite passers in this year’s draft class.
Mark Sanchez is expected to be on the Jets’ roster next
season given the $8.25 million guaranteed to him and the “lofty cap hit that
would come with cutting him,” says Costello. Beyond quarterback, New York could
also be in the market for a starting running back, guard and tight end.
