Gregg Williams
Gregg Williams

Gregg Williams took the bait, because of course he did. That's exactly what he wanted to do. He didn't have to. He's a grown man, 61 years old, a coach with 30 years of NFL experience. He could have just let those nasty things that Odell Beckham Jr. said about him go.

But that's not Williams' style. He's a brash, harsh, tough guy who at the very least wants to project the image that he'll never back down from a fight. So when he was asked on Friday about Beckham's accusation that Williams ordered his players to intentionally injure the attention-seeking receiver two years ago, Williams began by saying this:

"Odell who?"

There was more, of course, and all of it will end up on the bulletin board in Beckham's brain. The mouthy former Giants receiver will use it to fuel his fire when Beckham's Browns play the Jets on Monday night. Beckham's return to New York always figured to be spectacular anyway, especially against a Jets' secondary that's dangerously thin. Now he's surely going to be out to make personal statement, too.

So now that Williams has thrown himself into the mud with Beckham, he better have a way to stop him. That won't be easy to do.

 

It's not a mystery, really, why Williams, a grown coach, would decide to play such a childish game. Some of it is pride. Williams reputation already took a hit years ago with the famous "Bountygate" scandal in New Orleans, where he was caught on tape instructing his player to injure their opponents. So it wasn't a crazy suggestion when Beckham suggested Browns players had told him that Williams told them to do the same when Beckham played for the Giants and came to Cleveland for a preseason game. That's just not a reputation Williams likes.

The reputation he does like is that of a master motivator, a guy who wants his team to be bullies in his own image. He has to know his Jets secondary is reeling right now after John Brown had seven catches for 123 yards for the Buffalo Bills last Sunday, including the go-ahead, 38-yard touchdown catch when he slipped by Daryl Roberts and a Jets defense that had simply worn down. He knows that they know Beckham is a far more dangerous receiver.

But he wants his players confident. He doesn't want them to be afraid.

So when a reporter began a question on Friday by saying Beckham is one of the most dynamic receivers in football, Williams didn't care if that was a true statement. Before the question was finished, he jumped right in.

"That's your opinion," Williams said. "What's New York's opinion -- the Giants' opinion? What did the Giants do?"

Well, for what it's worth, the Giants traded Beckham to Cleveland because, in part, he was a walking distraction making too much money. Even Giants GM Dave Gettleman, the man who pushed for the trade, would concede that Beckham is one of the most dynamic receivers in the league.

But not Williams. 

"Here's the deal," he said. "We have to play against whoever comes out of the huddle every single week. We play whoever comes out of the huddle. We do that every day in practice. There's some of those same kinds of guys here."

Ummm … what? Just where are those Beckham-like receivers on the Jets' roster? Demaryius Thomas is the only receiver on the Jets who has ever had a 1,000-yard season, and that was three years ago. Also, he's been a Jet for all of three days.

Beckham had a pretty disappointing season for the Giants last year, and he still caught 77 passes for 1,052 yards and six touchdowns - in only 12 games. Forget the Jets receivers, though, it's the corners who will be the problem on Monday night. Beckham vs. Trumaine Johnson could be fun if Johnson is at his best. Beckham vs. anyone else? Those are matchups Williams has to find a way to avoid.

Maybe Williams knows something, though - or at least thinks he does. Maybe he thinks he's found Beckham's Kryptonite. Maybe, going against his old Browns team, now coached by the offensive coordinator he matched wits against in practice all last season, he's convinced he's figured out some sort of edge. The world now thinks a motivated Beckham is a danger to rack up 200 receiving yards on the Jets. But maybe Williams is convinced he's got a plan to keep him contained.

Or maybe this is the plan: Fire up his players by battling Beckham publicly. Fire up the likes of safety Jamal Adams, who tweeted "Got your back!" at Williams on Friday afternoon. Maybe in the end that will be enough to turn the tables on Beckham and inspire his players to get the job done.

He better hope so, and hope he hasn't awakened a beast. Because motivating players and boosting their confidence can be a great thing - but only if it works. If Beckham takes Williams' best and rips through the Jets anyway, they'll all learn that confidence - especially the manufactured kind -- can be a very fleeting thing.

Jets GM Joe Douglas
Jets GM Joe Douglas

It's officially April and that means it's officially NFL Draft month.

The Jets, like the rest of the league, are conducting video-conference interviews with prospects as no one is allowed to come in for official visits. And following those, Jets GM Joe Douglas and the rest of his team should have solidified their "Big Board," or the rankings of players in their eyes heading into the first round on April 23. 

What will that Big Board look like? No one really ever knows for sure, but we can always make some educated guesses. The Jets might rank each individual player even if they don't believe they will fall to No. 11 overall.

The Jets have brought back Sam Darnold's backup for most of last season in David Fales, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed on Tuesday. It will be on a one-year deal. 

With many believing the Jets might dip their toes into the backup quarterback market after that position was decimated last year following Darnold suffering from mono, it simply never happened according to Vacchiano. There was no interest shown in Matt Moore, who was the best one on the market, and had a history playing for Adam Gase in Miami. 

However, it is still very possible for the Jets to bring in someone to battle with Fales for that backup role, a source told Vacchiano.

The NFL held a remote presser today to discuss a few bits of news for the upcoming NFL Draft and regular season schedule, and the current expectation of the league right now is to have the 2020-21 season start on time without a hiccup. 

"Our expectation is fully directed at playing a full season starting on schedule and having a full regular season and full set of playoffs," NFL executive VP/General Counsel Jeff Pash said via Newsday's Bob Glauber

The league has already pushed back offseason workout programs and rookie minicamps following the draft could also be in question down the road. But they feel like by the time training camp comes around, things will be back to normal and the league can run like it normally does.

The writing was on the wall the entire time when Jets GM Joe Douglas was targeting Greg Van Roten in free agency.

A kid from Long Island. Grew up a Jets fan. And his childhood team needed help on the offensive line...badly. 

So when Van Roten finally signed a three-year deal to join the Jets, it all came full circle for him.

The Jets haven't had a true, No. 1 receiver since 2015, when Brandon Marshall had his last dominant season. He was the last Jets receiver to have 1,000 yards, and it's not clear they have one that's even capable of doing that now.

That's a problem, especially in this pass-happy era. Because while it's important that GM Joe Douglas is rebuilding the offensive line, quarterback Sam Darnold still needs weapons to make the Jets' offense run. He does still have Jamison Crowder, but his most dangerous receiver was Robby Anderson, and he's now in Carolina. And Anderson's replacement, Breshad Perriman, hasn't even combined for 1,000 yards in the last two years.

So while Crowder and Perriman are a good start, the Jets are still lacking a game-breaker -- a dynamic playmaker who can change defensive strategy and become Darnold's go-to guy. With none left in the free-agent pool, though, and the Jets still likely to take an offensive lineman in the first round of the draft, Douglas may have to get creative to find the No. 1 that Darnold needs.

After having the No. 3 pick in the NFL Draft in 2018 and 2019 and nabbing Sam Darnold and Quinnen Williams, the Jets find themselves all the way down at No. 11 for the 2020 draft.

Scott Thompson, SNY.tv | Twitter |

If the 2020 NFL Draft continues to remain on schedule, the Jets have less than a month to decide what they want to do with their No. 11 overall pick -- if they haven't done so already. 

Jets GM Joe Douglas is leading his first draft ever in New York, so he definitely wants to get the pick right. For awhile, it looked like a new offensive tackle to cover Sam Darnold would be the only avenue for him to explore as NFL free agency kicked off.

Douglas added a few pieces to his line, an objective he had from the start. However, George Fant, a depth player with the Seahawks, being the only tackle that he brought in pointed to the fact that he might explore the deep market of first-round tackles.

Jets GM Joe Douglas has said multiple times that rebuilding the team's offensive line was the main priority this offseason, but when it comes to the team's 11th overall pick in the 2020 draft, could Gang Green bypass a lineman for a wide receiver?

It sounds like Alabama wideout Henry Ruggs III could be making a very strong case.

Heading into this year's NFL Combine, there was a report that the Jets "have had their eyes on him for a while," and his 4.27 40-yard-dash time certainly didn't hurt Ruggs' draft stock.

The Jets and defensive back Marqui Christian reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year deal last Saturday, but it now seems like the deal will not be finalized.

Per Brian Costello of the New York Post, the Jets and Christian could not agree to final contract terms, and the team is now moving on.

Christian, originally a fifth-round pick of Arizona in 2016, had reportedly agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million deal with Gang Green shortly after the team officially parted ways with Darryl Roberts.

The Jets' offensive overhaul continued with the addition of former Carolina Panthers guard Greg Van Roten over the weekend.

Much like George Fant, Van Roten took an unusual path to where he is now. The 30-year-old did a solid job over the past few seasons as a starter with the Panthers, but prior to that, he had been out of the league for several years and spent two years playing in the CFL. He didn't make his first NFL start until he was 28.

When it comes to the 2020 NFL Draft, it sounds like the show must go on. 

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to all 32 NFL teams on Thursday evening, stating that the NFL Council Executive Committee has unanimously agreed that the 2020 draft should go on as planned on April 23-25, despite the coronavirus outbreak.

In the memo, Goodell noted that circumstances could change the league's plans in the next several weeks, but for now, teams should be prepared for the draft to take place at the end of April.

Goodell wrote that the draft "will obviously need to be conducted in a different way," and that all public events have already been canceled.

Jets QB Sam Darnold and Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen will always be linked, as the two were taken just four picks apart in the top seven of the 2018 NFL Draft, with both landing in the AFC East.

And now, with the sports world on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, the two are paired together once again.

According to a report from Albert Breer of The MMQB, Darnold, Allen, and new Washington Redskins quarterback Kyle Allen are all working out together in Southern California.

Jets GM Joe Douglas added a familiar face in LB Patrick "Peanut" Onwuasor on Wednesday in his latest free agent move to bolster his defense. Onwuasor is a great linebacker that has played in a starting and depth role, and has had time playing next to C.J. Mosley

The only problem is Onwuasor has officially created a logjam of linebackers at One Jets Drive. 

Maybe that's exactly what Douglas wanted -- some linebacker competition when training camp kicks off. Because that's exactly what will have to occur in this position group when head coach Adam Gase and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams work together to build the defense for the 55-man roster.

Connor McGovern
Connor McGovern

Bent, theJetsBlog.com Follow on Twitter

Of all players signed so far this offseason by the Jets, offensive lineman Connor McGovern could be the biggest. He's reportedly been guaranteed $18 million -- almost twice as much as any of the new additions -- on a three-year, $27 million deal.

At this stage, you could arguably say he's the only new addition who is definitely in the Jets' plans beyond this season. Therefore, let's give consideration to what those plans might be.

McGovern was a fifth-round pick out of Missouri and spent his entire rookie year with the Broncos as a healthy scratch. Over the next three seasons, he gradually worked his way into full-time role. After spending most of 2017 as a rotational lineman, McGovern started the last five games at right guard, then began the 2018 season as the starter in the same role. Midway through the season, Matt Paradis was lost to a season-ending injury, so McGovern moved into the starting center role before being made the full-time center in 2019.

The Jets have eight draft picks, including four in the first two days of the draft. That, of course, includes the third-rounder they got from the Giants in the Leonard Williams trade.

Considering how many holes they have to fill after their slow trip through the free agent market, they certainly can put those picks to good use. Exactly how they'll do that is hard to know with one month still to go until the draft starts.

But here's an early projection, based on the team's needs, what sources have said about players they might like, and what scouts have said about the value of certain players in the draft...

GM Joe Douglas added another former Raven to his roster, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal with LB Patrick Onwuasor, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed on Wednesday. 

Affectionately known as "Peanut," Onwuasor adds linebacker depth for Gregg Williams' defense that saw his first-teamers C.J. Mosley and Avery Williamson rarely on the field in 2019. Williamson was lost in the preseason to a torn ACL, and Mosley constantly battled a groin injury that forced him to miss 14 games in his first year with the Jets. 

Coming out of Arizona in 2016, Onwuasor went undrafted and Baltimore picked him up. He earned his spot on the team and quickly assumed a larger role one year later.

Robby Anderson has found a new home in the NFL, signing a two-year deal with the Panthers worth $20 million over that span. And it was a tough blow to the Jets, who simply waited too long to land the man that could've been their No. 1 receiver for Sam Darnold

So, as Anderson unfortunately makes his way down to Carolina, it's only right to put together some of No. 11's best highlights in green and white. 

Here are the best moments from the self-proclaimed "Sun God" that showcase his blazing speed, which can be seen in this crazy play from just last season...

The recent offensive line additions made by the Jets have earned the most attention, and with good reason. Four of the six new additions so far are offensive linemen, as were the recipients of all four of the multi-year deals given out to new or re-signed players.

However, the Jets also brought in two defensive backs on one-year deals. Former Rams safety Marqui Christian and former Colts cornerback Pierre Desir should bring an injection of talent into the secondary. Let's consider how these two players could fit into Gregg Williams' defense.

As of now, the 2020 NFL Draft is still scheduled to take place in Las Vegas from April 23-25, and it sounds like the NFL is hoping to keep it that way, despite some push-back from some general managers around the league.

According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini, the league's GM subcommittee has unanimously recommended that the draft be pushed back due to the coronavirus outbreak. Russini later said that differing accounts had the voting at 6-1, but either way, there was an overwhelming majority.

Some league GMs fear that there could be a competitive disadvantage since some teams may have easier access to their own facilities, while teams like the Jets and Giants in New Jersey would have a tougher time given local restrictions due to Covid-19.

Here's a player-by-player report card for the Jets' free agent signings so far:


OT George Fant (three years, $23.7 million, $13.7 million guaranteed)

Joe Douglas' first free-agent signing as Jets GM was a bit of a shocker, giving a huge pay day to Seattle's backup tackle. It's a gamble, for sure, but Fant is huge (6-foot-5, 322 pounds), powerful, and he has started 24 games over the last four seasons (He missed all of 2017 with a torn ACL).

Gang Green didn't waste much time at all in finding a replacement for Robby Anderson.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano has confirmed that the Jets have signed wide receiver Breshad Perriman to a one-year deal worth a max of $8 million, with $6 million guaranteed.

The wide receiver market had been moving at a very slow pace, but once Anderson agreed to a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers, other receivers quickly started coming off the board. Shortly after it was announced that Devin Funchess was heading to the Packers, the Jets struck an agreement with Perriman.

Robby Anderson always considered himself a No. 1 receiver, even if few others did. The Jets certainly valued his speed and his potential, and they seemed pleased with the improvement they saw towards the end of last season.

But they never viewed him as their No. 1 in the past or for the future. So losing him to the Carolina Panthers isn't necessarily a big deal.

The real big deal is the problem they're going to have replacing him.

SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed that Anderson has signed a two-year deal with the Carolina Panthers worth $20 million, which includes $12 million guaranteed.

Anderson was looking for a deal around the $13-14 million range per season, but Vacchiano has been reporting that the Jets weren't going to go that high to sign him. They wanted it around the $9-10 million range. Carolina, then, offering $12 million for the first year was the kicker there despite the deal being $10 million AAV.

The good teams use free agency to fill needs, which theoretically frees them up to take the best available player in the draft. It doesn't always work that way, of course, because teams tend to have plenty of needs.

But what they do in free agency definitely impacts their choices in the draft a month later. So now that free agency is one-week old, and most of the top players have signed, here's a look at where the Top 11 picks in the NFL Draft are likely to stand:

1. Cincinnati Bengals - LSU QB Joe Burrow

Absolutely nothing has changed. They avoided the Quarterback Carousel, as expected, despite the plethora of big names spinning around. And even though players like Jameis Winston and Cam Newton are still available, they continue to resist temptation. That's because they are laser-focused on the best quarterback in the draft. They may get a few offers from teams looking to move up and grab him, but it's almost a lock that the Bengals will stay right where they are and pick the man everyone knows they're going to take.

GM Joe Douglas continues to bolster his secondary, re-signing S Bennett Jackson for the 2020 season, per The Athletic's Connor Hughes.

Like Arthur Maulet, who re-signed with the Jets as well, Jackson wasn't offered a tender as a restricted free agent. So the Jets signed him to a new deal. Though the details haven't been released yet, the deal should be expected to be for one year. 

Jackson's NFL story is one of trial and tribulation, but his dream of making it into an NFL regular season game became a reality in 2019 when he suited up in Week 7 with the Ravens. He'd played in three more weeks for the Ravens after that before returning to the Jets for Weeks 14 and 15.
