Raheem Mostert: “Look where I’m at now”

Over the next two weeks, you’ll hear plenty about the way Raheem Mostert was cut by six teams in an 18-month span.

Spots 1-28 now set for 2020 NFL Draft

Yesterday was a crushing loss for the Texans, but at least they can comfort themselves with their future, and how they can use the 26th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to make a good team better. Oh wait, they already traded that one to the Dolphins. Sorry guys, that was probably too soon. With [more]

Larry David told the Jets to draft Lamar Jackson

George Constanza got hired by the Yankees by going against his every instinct, and doing the opposite.

Joe Douglas: Jets excited to move forward with Jamal Adams

Safety Jamal Adams was the only Jets player selected to the Pro Bowl and All-Pro team, which would seem to make him the kind of piece the Jets would want to build around in 2020 and beyond.

The Jets have roster construction issues to sort out this offseason, but the construction of the roster doesn’t wind up meaning all that much if your players aren’t available to play.
