The New York Jets continue to add much-needed depth. Meanwhile, CEO Christopher Johnson will be attending some key meetings in person.

The New York Jets are adding some serious depth at a variety of key positions on the team. That continued on Monday with the additions of veteran wideout Charles Johnson and veteran linebacker Kevin Minter.

A few interesting connections here:

“Charles Johnson’s 1st TD reception came from Teddy Bridgewater. Also had a 100-yard receiving game against the Jets in 2014″, via Jets Reporter Eric Allen.

“Kevin Minter’s system familiarity a plus. Minter started his career in ‘Zona, playing in Bowles’ defense”, via Jets Reporter Eric Allen.

The great thing about free agency is you can fill a ton of holes and provide yourself flexibility as it pertains to the NFL Draft so you can continue to take the best player available.

How much love do the Jets have for Baker Mayfield? So much that acting Owner Christopher Johnson will be “heavily involved” in his meeting with the team.

Mayfield has long been the quarterback I’ve desired. I’ve heard a lot of Jets fans complain about trading up and “potentially” taking him. Allow me to drop some knowledge: Mayfield is the most accurate quarterback in this draft and has the swagger to both handle the New York spotlight and galvanize this team.

Besides, you can’t be complacent in the NFL Draft. If you have a guy you want, you have to go get him. If you decide to wait and he’s not there at No. 6, then what? I respect the Jets for trading up and doing whatever it takes to land a potential franchise quarterback.

One last nugget to chew on:

The Jets do happen to have the most projected cap space in 2019. Coincidence? I think not.

A guy who can rush the quarterback, outside of quarterback itself, is arguably the biggest need for the green and white. Khalil Mack has 40.5 sacks in four years, not too shabby.
