By hitting the reset button, Jets in a great spot for roster building

Last week, Joe Douglas called it hitting the “reset button.”

Talking about the trade of Sam Darnold to the Carolina Panthers for three draft picks, and the Jets’ decision to pick a QB with the second pick of the 2021 draft.

“We felt like this was the best decision for the entire organization moving forward, and hitting the reset button,” said Douglas. “Ultimately, at the end of the day, we felt really good with the value and compensation we were able to get from Carolina. As we’re sitting here now, we have a lot of opportunity in front of us. With that opportunity, we know we have to make the most of it and hit on these picks.”

This hitting of the reset button for the Jets represents an amazing opportunity for them to build a great roster the next few years.

Now, the Jets will reset the QB contract clock, likely with BYU’s Zach Wilson, and will have him locked in for four years at a sensible cost (along with a fifth-year option).

So with a bunch of high draft picks the next two years, and plenty of cap space, and the QB contract set for the foreseeable future, Douglas has a chance to build a really strong roster, without cutting corners at certain positions due to an highly-expensive QB cost.
