I still have no power. I am actually going to try to make this mock pretty, even though I am doing this from my phone. Sorry if pictures don't load. Free Agency is pretty similar to the previous mock, but the draft is different.


I am going by quietjetsket and Davey's assumptions that the salary cap will be $136.48M and we are currently on the books for $140.14M. That leaves us with -$3.66M. I'm going to be a little pessimistic and say we end up with the 7th pick in the draft.

Coaching Changes:
Mike Pettine is fired. Joe Woods (DB coach for the Vikings) is hired as the new Defensive Coordinator. Rex Ryan reassumes play calling duties.

Eric Mangini is signed to a FO role. Rex Ryan's part in the draft process decrease.


Cuts:
OLB Calvin Pace ($8.56M saved): Pace is simply over the hill and a subpar player at this point in his career. He is not even worth a quarter of his salary.

ILB Bart Scott ($7.15M saved): See Pace, Calvin.

S Eric Smith ($3M saved): Smith is so bad. I wouldn't even say he's worth 3 dollars.

OT Jason Smith ($12M saved): I like Smith, but not for this much money.

WR Santonio Holmes ($1.25M saved): He's a cancer.

Updated cap: $28.3M


Re-Signings:
Arrow RFA RT Austin Howard ($.75M tender): I've been very impressed with Howard. We might have a keeper at RT. Crazy, isn't it?
Arrow RFA LS Tanner Purdum ($.6M tender): He is our rock.
Arrow UFA TE Dustin Keller (4 years, $22M; $4M cap hit): The first four games of this season have shown us how much we miss Keller. He is arguably our best offensive weapon, with or without Holmes.
Arrow UFA S LaRon Landry (3 years, $14M; $3M cap hit): I have been very impressed with Landry. He has been the first good safety that we've had since Kerry Rhodes in his early days.
Arrow UFA S Yeremiah Bell (1 year, $1.5M): He's been very good this year, but he's old. Gets a slight raise.
Arrow UFA OLB Aaron Maybin (2 years, $2.0M; $.75M cap hit): We need to keep at least one OLB around
Arrow UFA DE Mike DeVito (2 years, $2.2M; $1M cap hit): He returns for a smaller role.
Arrow UFA OG Matt Slauson (3 years, $5M; $1M cap hit): He isn't bad at LG.
Arrow UFA K Nick Folk (2 years, $2.5; $1M cap hit): He's not that bad of a kicker.
Arrow OT Jason Smith (2 years, $2.8M; $1M cap hit): He has some potential. It's worth it to keep him around.
Arrow CB Darrelle Revis (7 years, $105M; $7.5M cap hit): This reduces his cap hit by $1.5M. Even though he is coming off of a singificant injury, he is our best player and needs to be re-signed.

Updated cap: $16.2M


Trades:

New York Jets trade:
QB Mark Sanchez
7th round pick

Kansas City Chiefs trade:
6th round pick
As I touched on here, Sanchez has been a major dissapointment. I have been one of his biggest fans, but I have jumped off the bandwagon. In Draughn, we acquire a solid RB who does not get many carries in Kansas City.
$6.25M saved


New York Jets trade:
ATH Tim Tebow
Jacksonville Jaguars trade:
6th round pick
Tebow was a failure from the start. Just end the misery now.
$2.59M saved


New York Jets trade:
6th round pick
Green Bay Packers trade:
WR James Jones
We acquire who really does not have much of a role in Green Bay. He would fit well with Holmes, Hill, and Kerley.
$2.95M cap hit

Updated cap: $22.09M


Free Agency:

DE/OLB Cliff Avril: We sign the pass rusher we have not had since umm... John Abraham. We desperately need someone who can get after the QB. I'm choosing Avril over Connor Barwin because I don't think the Texans let Barwin go.
4 years, $45M ($8M cap hit)


TE Fred Davis: We give our new QB something that Sanchez never had, two good TEs. Davis can pair with Keller to form the second best TE in the NFL. Davis coming off of a severe injury, so he may sign for cheap.
2 years, $8M ($3.5M cap hit)


S Kenny Phillips: Phillips can form an elite safety tandem with Landry. Yermiah Bell becomes our third safety. This a huge turnaround from the Eric Smith, Brodney Pool, and Jim Leonhard days.
4 years, $20M ($4.1M cap hit)


QB Matt Moore: We sign Matt Moore to be the back-up QB for the next two seasons. A solid player who can give our rookie competition his first season, but will not bring the attention that Tim Tebow brings.
2 years, $2.5M ($1M cap hit)


OL Rex Hadnot: Hadnot becomes the back-up to Matt Slauson, Nick Mangold, and Vlad Ducasse at the interior OL positions. Yes, Ducasse is starting now.
1 year, $0.84M

Updated Cap: $4.65



THE DRAFT

Our picks:
1(7)
2(37)
3(69)
4
5
6 (via Kansas City)
6 (via Jacksonville)




1(7). DE/OLB Damontre Moore (Texas A&M)
We go from having an OLB corps filled with Calvin Pace and Bryan Thomas to one with Cliff Avril and Damontre Moore. Moore has taken over at Von Miller's position at TAMU and has excelled. He is one of the best players in this draft class.


2(37). QB Zac Dysert (Miami (OH))
We (hopefully) acquire our franchise QB. We hoped that Sanchez would be that guy, but he was not. We now hope Dysert can be that guy. Dysert reminds many of the last Miami (OH) QB to be drafted this early, Ben Roethlisberger. I don't expect Dysert to be as good as Big Ben, however, I think Dysert can end up being the second best QB from this draft class. I think Tannenbaum, Mangini, Rex, Sparano, and our new QB coach feel confident enough in Dysert to spend the 37th pick of the draft on him.


3(69). WR Quinton Patton (Louisiana Tech)
Patton has already clinched another 1,000-yard season for Louisiania Tech. He has quality size and speed. He could form a great young receiving trio with Stephen Hill and Jeremy Kerley. He will likely start out as the #4 receiver.


4th. RB Zac Stacy (Vanderbilt)
This guy can be a quality RB in the NFL. He finished with nearly 1,200 rushing yards and 6.0 YPC in the SEC last season. He runs a 4.4 40 yard dash, making him a great compliment to Bilal Powell.


5th. CB Branden Smith (Georgia)
Ellis Lankster is pretty bad. We get a guy with sub-4.4 speed to hopefully be our #4 CB this year.


6th(via KC). OL Jeff Braun (West Virginia)
We acquire some much needed OL depth.


6th(via JAC). WR Conner Vernon (Duke)
Another WR to throw into the mix.

Ryan and Sanchez are attached at the hip. And I'm fine with that if Ryan stays, there's so much more that needs to be improved other than simply the QB play. This isn't 2010 Sanchez surrounded by a top five running game, offensive line and quality receivers anymore. The entire Jets offense is very much lacking in talent and the defense needs an overhaul.

Additionally, the Jets should have roughly 8.1m more than you work with there in their cap space as they're able to carry over the free space they've got this season over to next year. Hence why they've been hesitant to use it.

I agree the offense around him needs to improve. However, I think this may be a situation where it's too late to change it. We need to build the team around the new QB. Sanchez has lost all confidence in himself and his teammates.

I will make changes to use up that $8.1M.

If some magical way we ended up with that draft and free agency I would cry happy tears. I can only hope my jets get my boy Denard.

I'm starting to doubt that Geno will be there for the #7 pick.

I like a lot of the other moves. Phillips & Avril is who I want on our roster. I'm not a big fan of Jones because he is another WR who drop passes. But I wouldn't be mad if we picked him up.

Overall, that would be a good offseason.

I think you're being really optimistic with the Sanchez trade. No way we get a fourth-round pick for him, especially with his contract.

Matt Cassel is even worse than Sanchez. I don't think Stanzi will be the answer for them. I think they can see the crappy situation he was in with the Jets and see if they can make something of him. Should be similar to the trade that sent Brady Quinn to the Broncos for Peyton Hillis and two draft picks.

It doesn't matter if Cassel is worse. If they give up on him they're going to draft another QB. They won't trade a fourth-round pick for a QB who has struggled ever since he has been in the league in the hopes of him turning things around.

Not to mention the FA signings are a little farfetched.

We have a lot of money to work with. Avril was close to signing a contract with the Lions that would pay him $30 million over three years. This is basically that plus a year. The AAV of the contracts I gave to Phillips and Davis are similar to the franchise tag for their positions.

Smith throws like Tebow. No thanks; we need an NFL QB, not a college all star.

If we did something similar I would be happy with that.

If Rex and Sanchez are glued at the hip then they can both go. Pettine wouldn't get fired.

I really dont like any QB enough to draft them as my starter going forward. We might be better off signed jason campbell and drafting a guy like Mike Glennon in the middle rounds to get a guy who has upside but needs some seasoning until we find a QB who we want to go all out for.

Were going to have a lot of money to spend, but it should really be spent on more B-level type free agents. We need OGs and a RT. I disagree with your assessment on both slauson and howard. there both very very replaceable. Would love Phillips at S but he would never come here, when he can play for a much better giants team and even though I love James Jones, its taking a 4th to get him from the Packers. A 6th round pick isnt getting us a good WR.

This was a good read and it made me at least interested in the Jets after this loss today. So I thank you for that and love the overall idea.
