I don’t agree with the premise of this answer Dan Leberfeld

Rex Ryan said this in Buffalo last week.

And Mike Maccagnan said it today in Florham Park.

When asked about players on the roster about to become free agents, Maccagnan said, “In a perfect world. we’d like to bring everybody back.”

I don’t get that.

Why would you want to bring everybody back from a middle-of-the-road team that missed the playoffs?

Look, I understand he’s not going to tell us the names of players he doesn’t want back. I get that.

But why say you want “everybody back?”

If I were the Jets or the Bills, I would not want all the free agents back.

And there is nothing wrong with saying that.

Actually it sends a strong message about the need for improvement.
