Joe Douglas is on a mission. He fills in holes in the Jets roster and takes on names. Douglas went out and got a top safety, a cornerback, two tight ends and more. While there’s still work to be done, the Jets are getting better and fans should be excited about the direction the franchise is taking.
To talk about Gang Green’s moves so far, we bring you a special free-agent frenzy edition of the Gang’s All Here Podcast starring Brian Costello and me. Leger Douzable, friend of the program, SNY analyst and former defense attorney for the Jets, joined us.
Gangs All Here Podcast with Jake & Coz:
- SMARTER JOE D: Douglas signs up-and-coming players who are in the prime of their careers. The deals are structured to give Jets room to spend this off-season. You have the flexibility to do more.
- BREAKDOWN OF MOVEMENTS: Laken Tomlinson was a great signing. He may have to switch to right-back for the first time in his career. DJ Reed knows Robert Saleh’s system and becomes the Jets’ No. 1 cornerback. Jordan Whitehead becomes their top safety and was a no-brainer for the price. Jets now have two legitimate starting tight ends in CJ Uzomah and Tyler Conklin for the first time in 12 years.
- WIDE RECEIVER: During the recording, the Bills signed Jamison Crowder. Jets still need a top WR. Does it appear in the draft? Is there a chance for a trade with DK Metcalf? Who else is out there? The non-overpayment Braxton Berrios signing was an important move as he developed strong chemistry with Zach Wilson.

- CAP ROOM: Douglas has something up his sleeve. He’s far from finished. A big name WR is coming – if not via trade or free agency, then in draft form.
- DESIGN: What will the Jets do with the 4th and 10th picks? This team badly needs a big edge rusher on the other side of Carl Lawson.
- STACKED AFC: Jets will have trouble with hard AFC. A slew of QB talent has come to the AFC, making their schedule much more difficult.
