The NFL offseason is so close to getting underway football fans around the country can taste it. NFL faithful will finally get an idea of what their team's roster is going to look like in an unprecedented, frantic micro-offseason that is sure to shake up the power structure of both conferences.
Every team has issues to address, but none may be more hectic than the potential shakeup the New York Jets face.
The Jets have a long list of players scheduled to become free agents. Key contributors like Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie and Brad Smith to name a few. Once the lockout is lifted GM Mike Tannenbaum will be under pressure to find the right formula of players to get the Jets over the AFC championship hill.
Looking at the numbers, it's going to be nearly impossible for the Jets to retain all of the people they would like to, but creativity and deal-making have been Tannenbaum's specialty, (see: Brett Favre, Santonio Holmes, Antonio Cromartie, etc.) Tannenbaum has his work cut out for him, but to make it to the final game of the season there are seven moves the GM should highly consider.
