Memo to Woody, Neil, Mike Mac Dan Leberfeld

Tempe – Memo to Woody Johnson, Neil Glat and Mike Maccagnan – don’t spend money in free agency to appease the public.

That almost never works.

Johnson did a radio interview Wednesday with Mike Lupica, a long-time Jets antagonist, who has been nice to them recently.

And Johnson told Lupica, “We’re going to try to spend” in free agency.

That is fine.

They should do that.

But don’t overdue it to send a message, to shut-up the critics who called them “cheap” in 2014.

As Bill Parcells once said, “You can’t buy a championship.”

The best strategy is to draft well, and plug in pragmatic free agent signings here and there.
