Adding QB may Have Just Gotten Harder for Gang Green

Mike Maccagnan JN

While the Jets are expected to put on a full court press to sign free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, there’s obviously no guarantee he’ll take his talents to 1 Jets drive.  Should the Jets fail to land the quarterback, they’ll likely turn their attention to the draft where it appears that landing a quarterback may have just become a bit more complicated.

With the Cleveland Browns and New York Giants picking first and second respectively, the third team on the clock, the Indianapolis Colts were viewed as a possible trade partner for Gang Green, or at least a team that wouldn’t be interested in taking a signal caller with their pick.  However, in light of reports questioning the health of Andrew Luck, you can no longer assume the Colts won’t stay put and take the best QB on the board.

With Luck’s future now in doubt, there’s a good chance that the top three picks in the draft will be quarterbacks with the Denver Broncos also seeking a new quarterback after GM John Elway bombed on first and second round picks Paxton Lynch and Brock Osweiller.

No matter the circumstance, there are no excuses for GM Mike Maccagnan as he enters his fourth year as the team’s GM without a legitimate option at quarterback.  Whether it’s a first round rookie or a veteran such as Nick Foles or Tyrod Taylor, JetNation will be calling for Maccagnan’s head if the team goes to battle with another 35+ year-old journeyman under center in 2018.
