Jets Notes: Rosen, Johnson, Minter, Dozier

If the Jets are looking to play it safe at quarterback, Josh Rosen would be the smart choice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com argues. Of course, that’s assuming that Rosen will be on the board for Gang Green at No. 3 overall, and that’s far from a certainty.

That’s also not to say that Rosen is a slam dunk. Although Rosen has great mechanics, the Jets do have concerns about his accuracy. Conversely, Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield has been lauded for his precision. The UCLA star also doesn’t have the arm strength of Wyoming product Josh Allen.

Currently, all signs are pointing to the Browns selecting Sam Darnold at No. 1 overall and there are rumblings that the Giants are not particularly interested in Rosen at No. 2. Assuming the Browns take Darnold and the Giants go with a non-QB, the Jets will get to choose between three of this year’s top four QB prospects.

Here’s more on the Jets:

  • Wide receiver Charles Johnson‘s contract with the Jets is a one-year, $1.5MM pact, Cimini tweets. The deal includes a $250K signing bonus, a $250K workout bonus, and a $1MM base. Johnson spent the 2017 season on the Panthers’ IR after a summer injury. He made some noise in Minnesota, but has not made a noticeable impact since 2014.
  • Linebacker Kevin Minter‘s contract with the Jets is a one-year, $880K deal with a $90K signing bonus, Cimini tweets. Same goes for guard Dakota Dozier.

      The only things certain in life are death, taxes and the Jets having bad karma. The guy they don’t choose will make a trip to NY each year and torch the Jets for 300+ yards and 3TDs.

        My biggest fear is that the Jets will cut Hackenberg, the Pats will pick him up, and he will develop into a great QB

    The Jets have already taken a huge risk by trading up. Now is not the time to play it safe.

    Talk about confusing. Rosen the most accurate of the QBs. Rosen has some questions about his accuracy. Josh Allen has accuracy issues. Josh zAllen is a victim of dropped passes. Sam Darnold has it all. Sam Darnold turns over the ball too much. Baker Mayfield is meant for New York. Baker Mayfield is too thin skinned for New York.

    What’s a girl to do?

    I think the Jets order of preference, (if available), is Darnold and then Mayfield. Even if Rosen is available when they select, they will take one of those two.

      If that were the case, they wouldn’t have had to trade up. Mayfield would’ve been there at 6. I think Mayfield interest is a bluff. It’s Rosen, Darnald or Barkley.

    I don’t think Darnold is dropping to 3. He seems to be the prize of the QB class, Mayfield is the most polarizing, Rosen is the more traditional, and Allen and Jackson are the most intriguing. It would be a total Jets move to trade all of that capital to move up to 3 for a guy they probably could have still had at 6 (Mayfield).

    If I’m the Jets, I take Rosen. It’s about time they drafted a high-floor caliber QB to give them something they haven’t had… consistency. But also if I’m the Jets I’m not giving up all those assets to move up to 3 in the first place unless I know FOR CERTAIN who I want and he’ll still be there at 3. Both of which they don’t seem to know… so good luck Jets fans. Sure it’s cool they moved up to three but they still have no idea what they’re doing and they gave up A LOT to get there.
