After a relatively quiet start to free agency, the Jets returned to the tabloid back pages by acquiring Tim Tebow in a trade with Denver. New York also made a low-risk/high-reward signing in safety LaRon Landry (Washington). Significant losses:
Wide receiver Plaxico Burress and running back LaDainian Tomlinson are still free agents after not re-signing. Top draft need:
The Jets have entertained virtually all of the projected first-round wide receiver prospects on pre-draft visits. Safety and a pass-rushing outside linebacker should be other priorities. Analysis:
Rather than sign a conventional free-agent quarterback like Chad Henne or Kyle Orton to push Mark Sanchez, the Jets made the curious call of trading for Tebow. In a perfect world, Sanchez will rebound from a disappointing 2011 campaign and Tebow will shine in limited snaps running the Wildcat offense. In reality, the difficulty in running a two-quarterback system may create problems that undermine both players. Grade:
