The New York Jets added key players on both sides of the ball this off-season. Here are three of them who can either boom or bust in 2016.
New York Jets General Manager Mike Maccagnan didn’t make as big of a splash this off-season as he did last year, but the second-year GM did make some big changes.
With a limited amount of cap space and even fewer draft picks than last season, Maccagnan managed to bring in quality rookies and veterans on both sides of the ball.
What’s different about this group of new additions compared to last season’s new additions, however, is that many of them have boom or bust potential.
Last season, Maccagnan brought in Brandon Marshall, Darrelle Revis and Leonard Williams, two of which were already established pro bowlers at their positions, and the last of which was the highest rated player in the entire 2015 draft.
This season, however, thanks to a mediocre free agent class and a limited number of draft picks, Maccagnan took risks on players who will either “boom” or “bust.”
Here are three of those players and the reasons why I think they’ll either “boom” or “bust” in 2016.
