The NFL free agency floodgates open at 4 PM today. Here are a few last minute thoughts related to the New York Jets before anything can become official later this afternoon - 1. Jamaal Westerman, Matthew Mulligan, and Marquice Cole weren’t tendered, leaving them unrestricted free agents. Mulligan is a goner, which is a good thing unless you are in favor of penalty yardage.

Ten Preliminary Thoughts On Jets/Eagles

Ten preliminary thoughts on the New York Jets week 15 match-up against the Philadelphia Eagles. 1. Philadelphia’s speed on offense is a major concern for the Jets. LeSean McCoy is capable of breaking a big run at any moment. The Jets must be extremely disciplined on the edges, most notably Calvin Pace and Jamaal Westerman at linebacker.
