Some ppl believe the Jets will pick a QB in the first round or try to get Jay Cutler. Now if neither of these pan out should management consider signing Byron Leftwich? He's young, talented, and has starting experiance. I believe Jacksonville messed up in '07 by releasing him and that his only mistake was getting hurt. Since then he's played back-up for 2 teams and has played well when called on. In his roughly 2 and half years starting he has 54-38 TD-INT, 9,624 yards, and a QB rating of 80.3. I'm not a huge fan of his but that's not bad. I personally think it'd be better to use our 17th pick on a receiver so we have another threat for are passing game rather than use it on another young QB who may or may not bust but will def need to develop. I think that'd put us in the same position as right now. With our defence being better than it's been in decades we have a shot not only at the playoffs but the Super Bowl. The only things missing are a franchise QB and a starting speed receiver. I'm willing to give are current signal callers a chance but I don't want us being stuck in the middle of the season desperately needing a quarterback. If we have the same QB core after the draft I say sign him and let all of them compete for the starting job in camp.
No announcement yet.
Should Byron Leftwich be considered an option for the Jets?
