Several top quarterbacks in college declared for the 2018 NFL Draft. Will the New York Jets dip their toes into the quarterback market?

The New York Jets have cap flexibility, draft ammunition, and a revitalized approach to the 2018 offseason.

Another additive for this Jets mixture is the official additions of two prominent pocket passers: Josh Rosen, QB, UCLA and Sam Darnold, QB, USC to the 2018 NFL Draft pool.

There were varying reports all season about how Darnold is the type of guy who would stay and the like. But long story short, this draft will be loaded at the quarterback position. Which is convenient for a Jets franchise that is in desperate need of a signal-caller.

The Owner of the Jets, Christopher Johnson continued to make his media rounds and this time with the official site of the Jets.

Johnson spoke with New York Jets reporter Eric Allen here:

Johnson is saying all the right things right now, which is expected. But soon we’ll find out if he’s going to put his money where his mouth is (literally and figuratively). With the Jets set to have $100m they could get their guy in free agency (Kirk Cousins, Sam Bradford, or Teddy Bridgewater).

While there is another option…

The 2018 NFL Draft. It’s the preferred option for teams looking to solve the position for the next 10-12 years. Although there are no guarantees as the Jets are painfully aware. No team has drafted more quarterbacks since the 21st century than the green and white, but they haven’t drafted an offensive player since Mark Sanchez. It might be time to mix it up again.
