The big wheels keep on turning. The Jets continued their aggressive offseason today by reaching a one-year deal with former Vikings inside linebacker Erin Henderson. A week ago the Jets had absolutely no depth at MLB behind starters David Harris and DeMario Davis.

The Importance of Demario Davis

Earlier in the offseason, the Jets re-signed linebacker David Harris to a 3-year, $21-million contract. Harris has been cornerstone of the Jets defense since 2007 both on and off the field. However, since Harris’ time as an impact player is coming to an end, Demario Davis’ role is set to increase. The Jets took Davis in the third round of the 2012 draft out of Arkansas State...

However, at number 6 I believe both QBs will be gone and pass rusher will be the direction that they decide...

You have to hand it to the Jets’ new shot-caller, Mike Maccagnan, as he didn’t wait until the Free Agency period officially starts on Monday to start making a big splash to help improve this roster.

New York Jets re-sign MLB David Harris

David Harris is, by all reports, a nice guy, a likeable teammate, and easy to coach. He’s been a defensive captain and signal caller for the Jets defensively for years and he’s been a leader on and off the field. I feel like that gets him overpaid. Four off-seasons ago, Harris signed a 4-year, 36 million dollar deal with the Jets, even though he graded out below average in his...
