New York Jets have plenty of options with four compensatory draft picks

The New York Jets lost a lot more free agents than they gained in 2013, and it’s payed off in 2014. At least in hindsight. Monday, the Jets were awarded a league-high (tied with the Baltimore Ravens) four compensatory draft picks — a late fourth-rounder and three fourth-rounders. Here’s how it broke down: Players lost (in 2013): Yeremiah Bell, Mike DeVito, Shonn Greene, Dustin...

Atlanta Falcons sign DE Tyson Jackson

I wrote in my Chiefs’ off-season preview that Tyson Jackson would be lucky if he got the 3 year 12.6 million dollar deal that the Chiefs gave teammate Mike DeVito last off-season. DeVito is a very similar player, a pure base 3-4 defensive end that excels against the run, but doesn’t offer much as a pass rusher, but the difference is DeVito has more of a proven track record. DeVito...

New York Jets Quietly Making Some Nice Free Agent Signings

My New York Jets have become the butt of many jokes recently, and rightfully so.  Things got so bad this season that Fireman Ed, their unofficial cheerleader, stepped down. The season culminated with the the firing of General Manager Mike Tannebaum, the so called “cap expert” who left the Jets in a salary cap nightmare. To replace Tannebaum, the Jets brought in unheralded...

New York Jets – Patience With A Purpose

The lazy approach to covering the New York Jets off-season (see many of the beat writers) is acting in any way surprised about people like Shonn Greene, Dustin Keller, LaRon Landry and Mike DeVito are leaving. This of course lends itself to catchy terms to be splashed on back page headlines like “REX-ODUS” and shoot out snarky Tweets like “At least they signed Lex Hilliard...

Can New York Jets Fans Accept Pains Of Rebuilding?

Mike Devito and Sione Pouha are gone. Laron Landry is visiting the Colts and the impending doom that Revis Island is on his way out hangs over the fan base like a guillotine. David Garrard is now a Jet. Affordable “Upside potential” players like Mike Goodson and Brandon Gibson are coming to visit. That may not enough for some Jet fans but they better get used to it.

Kansas City Chiefs sign DL Mike DeVito

Mike DeVito is a nice under the radar signing for the Chiefs. He’s pretty one dimensional, but he’s really good at what he does and that’s tie up blockers on running downs in a 3-4. He’s offers no pass rush, but he was ProFootballFocus’ 7th rated 3-4 defensive end against the run and 3 years, 12.6 million is fairly reasonable for him. The problem is that he and Tyson Jackson...

New York Jets Free Agency: Slow Start Isn’t Reason For Panic

It’s not always easy for fans to sit back and watch as other teams climb all over one another for a chance to sign the most highly-touted free agents on the market. Unfortunately for some Jets fans, inactivity early in free agency equates to failure. And while many understand that this “inactivity” is an intelligent non-move by Jets General Manager John Idzik, there’s been...
