Grading Every New York Jets Major Offseason Move to Date
Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports
Rex Ryan's retention was the Jets' first major offseason move.

Grading the New York Jets’ offseason moves before they’ve taken a single snap in pads almost seems pointless. It’s not like assigning postgame grades, where there is an actual performance to assess. In many cases, grading offseason moves before the team dons pads relies as much on hope as on anything else.

I hope the Jets let the right players go and the right players stay. I hope the new players stay healthy enough to play their intended roles. I hope the rookies don’t let the team down like so many previous draft picks have done. Finally, I hope the Jets have prioritized filling their needs in a way that keeps them interesting this year and lays the groundwork for better years to come.

In other words, many of the moves these slides describe deserve a grade of “Incomplete.” It may not be possible to assign a final grade to a draft pick, free agent or trade acquisition for maybe years to come.

However, for the sake of debate if nothing else, it’s time to give it a shot.
