This Is A Veteran Team
Just take a look at the current state of the New York Jets depth chart. Their better players are all of the veteran variety.
Aside from Calvin Pryor and the beasts upfront, everybody else is 29 years or older.
Jets Older Top Players:
- Nick Mangold, C, 32
- Brandon Marshall, WR, 32
- David Harris, ILB, 32
- Darrelle Revis, CB, 30
- Matt Forte, RB, 30
- Breno Giacomini, RT, 30
- Eric Decker, WR, 29
- Ryan Clady, LT, 29
In what world would this second year regime would think going into 2016 would be better served with an unproven QB such as Geno Smith?
Of course they want Ryan Fitzpatrick back. They would love to build off of the stupendous offensive season in 2015 instead of starting from scratch with Smith.
It’s not as easy as “plug and play.” Building momentum from year one to year two means a lot. Mikey Mac and Todd Bowles know this.
