A fresh take from acting owner Christopher Johnson. Also, the Jets beefed up their offensive line with a familiar face.

When the news was released that owner Woody Johnson would be handing over the reigns of the New York Jets to his younger brother Christopher, many in the media and fan base had no idea what that would mean for the team moving forward.

Well, one takeaway so far is that Christopher Johnson isn’t afraid to lay down the lumber. He’s been a quote machine since stepping up to the microphone.

“Speaking as a fan, which I am first, I think that this is a really exciting time in the history of the Jets.”

That’s an interesting comment from a team that hasn’t been in the postseason since 2010 and has undergone a few front office overhauls during that time. But you get the gist of what he’s saying.

The Jets seem to have a few foundational pieces to build this future on and with the prized gem that is the third-overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the future looks very bright.

In my weekly chat with Jets Insider Joe Caporoso, we discussed what the green and white would do with that pick.

But as we’ve seen in the past, it’s more than just the first-round picks that the Jets have to hit on. It’s in the other rounds and of course, in free agency, where they need to shine.

With that being said, the Jets kept some beef in the trenches by re-signing Jonotthan Harrison to their interior.

We’ll end this New York Jets Daily with a bit of a history lesson.

1963 was a pivotal year in team history as the franchise was changing its name from the New York Titans to something else. A few names were discussed like the Dodgers or the Gothams, ultimately the team settled on the Jets because of the proximity to LaGuardia Airport! Funny how things work out!
