You can also forget about Hackenberg who must be such a bad quarterback, the Jets didn't even bother to give him so much as a single snap during a regular season game for the past two years.

It's common knowledge the Jets were going hard after former Washington Redskins starter Kirk Cousins.
Former Rams free-agent cornerback Johnson agreed to terms with the Jets on a deal that could be worth $15m per season. They locked up Josh McCown to return for another year, but this time he'll have healthy competition.
"Obviously familiarity on both sides was key and for me, I've been on a few teams now and changed scenery a little bit", McCown said on Wednesday. If so, it would give the Jets one of the top secondaries in the National Football League in the blink of an eye.More news: Brokerages Set Nike Inc (NKE) PT at $65.71
The Jets drafted their current starting safeties, Marcus Maye and Jamal Adams, in the first two rounds of the 2017 draft.
At the top of the list of free-agent signings is cornerback Trumaine Johnson, who is expected to sign a five-year, $72.5-million deal with $34 million in guarantees, according to sources. Crowell expressed frustration with the play calling last season when the Browns went 0-16. He also added 124 rushing yards and 5 scores on the ground. He posted slightly better numbers in 2016, rushing for 952 yards while averaging 4.8 yards per attempt. With Matt Forte retiring it left a hole at running back for the Jets.
The 26-year-old started 59 games for the Titans over four years and is known as a stout run-stuffer. Bates, who was Todd Bowles' quarterbacks coach in 2017 and mentored McCown while serving in the same capacity with Chicago in 2012, was promoted to offensive coordinator in February.More news: Kendall Jenner reacts to gay rumours
