    Cowboys | Dak Prescott not scared of close quarters
    Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott attempted 128 throws into tight coverage in 2019, according to Pro Football Focus. That mark was good for the third-highest total in the league, two behind second-place Andy Dalton, who was signed in free agency to back him up in 2020.

    Raiders | Receivers did a lot of work for Derek Carr
    Las Vegas Raiders QB Derek Carr threw for a career-high 4,054 yards in 2019. Of that total, 53.9 percent came after the catch - the second-highest percentage in the league - per Pro Football Focus.

    49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo got his fair share of help
    San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw for a career-high 3,978 yards in 2019. Of that total, a league-high 54.2 percent came after the catch, per Pro Football Focus.

    Lions | Quintez Cephus likely to make team
    Detroit Lions WR Quintez Cephus likely will make the final roster, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Michael Rothstein.
    Footballguys view: Cephus is an advanced route runner and very combative with his hands and body positioning. He could be in line to start as early as next year with Marvin Jones set to his free agency in 2021. He's a great later target in dynasty rookie drafts.

    Patriots | Jarrett Stidham out with teammates
    New England Patriots QBs Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer have been working out with teammates this past week. WR Mohamed Sanu, WR Gunner Olszewski, RB Damien Harris and TE Dalton Keene were among the players participating in the workouts.
    Footballguys view: Cam Newton was working out with Patriots free agent signing Damiere Byrd, who was his teammate in Carolina, and last week worked out with Sanu and 2019 first-round pick N'keal Harry. Stidham has a longer tenure with the team, and his familiarity with the offense and roster will be his best bet to win the starting job over Newton.

    Tuesday Update

    Chiefs | Clyde Edwards-Helaire deal nearly complete
    Kansas City Chiefs RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire reportedly reached a verbal agreement on a four-year contract Monday, July 20. The deal is pending the completion of a physical and financial terms of the contract were not immediately disclosed.

    Colts | T.Y. Hilton to remain a critical part of offense
    Indianapolis Colts WR T.Y. Hilton is 'still the main piece of this offense' and 'who this pass offense runs through,' according to offensive coordinator Nick Sirianni.'I expect a great bounce back from a year he had a lot of injuries. I expect the 2018 version of him (76 catches, 1,270 yards, seven touchdowns). If T.Y. stays healthy, there's no doubt that's what we'll see. ... He's still the main piece of this offense. T.Y. Hilton is who this pass offense runs through,' Sirianni said.

    Jets | Four-year contract for James Morgan
    New York Jets fourth-round draft choice QB James Morgan signed a four-year contract with the Jets Monday, July 20, worth $4 million.

    Chiefs | Clyde Edwards-Helaire agrees to deal
    Kansas City Chiefs first-round draft choice RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Chiefs Monday, July 20, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Edwards-Helaire is already going in the second round of some fantasy drafts. He'll need to stay healthy through camp and prove he is ready to overtake Damien Williams to make that ADP seem wise in hindsight. For now, Williams being available much later appears to be the better pick.

    Buccaneers | Tyler Johnson signs rookie deal
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers fifth-round draft choice WR Tyler Johnson signed a four-year contract with the Buccaneers Monday, July 20. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Johnson is a classic NFL slot receiver, but Chris Godwin was outstanding in that role last and the Bucs might not use a slot receiver as much with Rob Gronkowski and a four deep tight end group. Johnson will likely be one of those receivers who is much more productive in college than the pros.

    NFL | Antonio Brown done playing?

    Free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) indicated on Twitter that he is done playing professional football.
    Footballguys view: This isn't the first time Brown has postured as if he was going to retire. One report by Jeremy Fowler indicated that Brown is bringing up retirement because he was close to settling the Britney Taylor case, which is what happened last year. His status as a late round flier is looking shakier as Brown's instability is resurfacing.

    49ers | Raheem Mostert talks with team
    San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert recently talked with a high-ranking member of the 49ers to clear the air and get on the same page moving forward, according to sources. Mostert asked for a trade earlier in the month, but it is not known if he is still seeking a trade.
    Footballguys view: Anything positive in this situation should push Mostert's ADP back up. The fantasy football hive mind has overreacted to the specter of a holdout and created a buy low window in dynasty and redraft alike. Expect Mostert to get some sort of raise and his ADP to return to, if not surpass its previous level.

    Eagles | Jalen Hurts agrees to terms
    Philadelphia Eagles second-round draft choice QB Jalen Hurts agreed to a four-year contract with the Eagles Monday, July 20, worth $6.02 million. The deal includes a $1.94 million signing bonus.
    Footballguys view: Hurts might get on the field in some special package plays, but probably won't be the backup to Carson Wentz as long as Nate Sudfeld makes the roster. If Wentz gets hurt and misses significant time, it is possible that the Eagles would turn to Hurts quickly if Sudfeld is mediocre.

    Wednesday Update

    Rams | Sean McVay talks up RBBC again
    Los Angeles Rams RBs Cam Akers, Darrell Henderson, John Kelly and Malcolm Brown will likely be expected to begin the season in a committee, as head coach Sean McVay specifically mentioned the way the San Francisco 49ers used their running backs last season as a model for what he hopes the Rams will attempt to do at the position in 2020.'I think it'll just naturally work itself out. I think if you look at that success San Fran had last year with that running back-by-committee approach. What I thought Kyle (Shanahan) and their players did a great job of is, 'Hey, we're going to have an open-mind approach, we're going to be committed to trying to have some balance and then we'll go with the hot hand or whoever really expresses himself as deserving of the carries,' McVay said on The Helliepod.
    Footballguys view: This is a nightmare for Fantasy GMs who are looking for value. The Rams have talented backs who do things each a little differently but they're not going to pick one to lead the way. In addition to a RBBC, this situation could turn into the dreaded 'hot hand' approach which is incredibly difficult for Fantasy GMs to navigate. The rookie Akers is the first Rams running back coming off the board with a current ADP of RB26 (5.06) followed up by Henderson at RB50 (10.12) in 12-team PPR leagues.

    Steelers | JuJu Smith-Schuster a sure thing on deep balls
    Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster has been targeted 45 times on throws 20-plus downfield in his NFL career and doesn't have a single dropped pass, according to Pro Football Focus.
    Footballguys view: Smith-Schuster needs to be a sure thing when it comes to being off the injury report. We'll see if he can stay healthy and produce at the expected levels with a healthy QB Ben Roethlisberger tossing him the rock. Smith-Schuster has talent but did not look good last year and only made it through 12 games, finishing as the no.63 fantasy receiver. If healthy, Smith-Schuster could get back to WR2 levels for Fantasy GMs.

    JuJu Smith-Schuster player page




    Texans | Houston signs Isaiah Coulter
    Houston Texans fifth-round pick WR Isaiah Coulter signed his four-year rookie contract Tuesday, July 21, according to a source. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
    Footballguys view: There are some in the scouting community who compare Coulter's game to that of former NFL WR Brandon Lloyd. Coulter has speed to get open with ease, then he can create more separation after the catch with his speed. At Rhode Island he produced against FCS-level competition but did play well when going up against larger FBS schools. We'll monitor him closely in dynasty formats.

    Packers | Josiah Deguara agrees to rookie contract
    Green Bay Packers third-round pick TE Josiah Deguara agreed to his four-year rookie contract Tuesday, July 21. Financial terms were undisclosed.
    Footballguys view: He's a fullback/tight end 'tweener who lined up all over the formation for Cincinnati in college. He finished his college career with more catches (92) than any other tight end in Bearcats history. Deguara should not be much of a fantasy factor but his versatility will help him keep a spot on the 53-man roster.

    Bears | Chicago's rookie class locked up
    Updating a previous story, Chicago Bears second-round pick TE Cole Kmet, seventh-round pick G Lachavious Simmons, fifth-round pick LB Trevis Gipson, fifth-round CB Kindle Vildor, fifth-round pick WR Darnell Mooney and seventh-round pick OL Arlington Hambright signed their four-year rookie contracts Tuesday, July 21. It was previously announced second-round pick CB Jaylon Johnson signed his rookie deal. Financial terms of the deals were undisclosed.
    Footballguys view: Kmet and Mooney are the players Fantasy GMs need to watch here. During his college career at Notre Dame, Kmet displayed a 'Y' skill set at the tight end position. He's a decent receiver with strong hands and concentration while also serving as a capable blocker. Mooney's game is all about speed, speed and more speed. His game at Tulane was all about tracking passes deep and that's his best attribute as a rookie in the pros.

    Buccaneers | Raymond Calais signs
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers seventh-round pick RB Raymond Calais signed his four-year rookie contract Tuesday, July 21. Financial terms of the deal weren't disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Calais has a ton of burst with the ball in his hands. He's smaller but incredibly explosive and has home-run ability when he gets a gap as a runner. Calais is not a receiving threat and will need to prove that's in his toolbox after only catching 17 passes in four seasons at Louisiana.

    Raiders | Henry Ruggs agrees to rookie deal
    Las Vegas Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III agreed to terms on his four-year rookie deal Tuesday, July 21. The contract is slotted, per the NFL's rules, and it is fully guaranteed for $16.67 million. Per NFL policy for first-round draft choices, the deal includes a team option for a fifth year.
    Footballguys view: Ruggs is one of the fastest players to come into the league in NFL history. He can take short passes and turn them into long gains with his speed where he can outrun angles. In addition, Ruggs can get by defenders in the blink of an eye and tracks the ball well over his shoulder. He should be the no.1 receiver for the Raiders in 2020. Ruggs has a current ADP of WR45 (10.07) in 12-team PPR leagues.

    Friday Update

    Ravens | Gus Edwards' roster spot in jeopardy?
    Baltimore Ravens RB Gus Edwards was forced down the depth chart following the arrival of second-round draft pick J.K. Dobbins. However, ESPN's Jamison Hensley believes his roster spot is safe after rushing for at least 700 yards in consecutive seasons despite the fact Baltimore has yet to carry four running backs on its season-opening roster in 12 seasons under head coach John Harbaugh.

    Panthers | Mike Davis may be top backup in Carolina

    49ers | Raheem Mostert ridiculously efficient

    Raheem Mostert player page



    Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa gives himself green light
    Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa (hip) declared himself ready for the start of training camp in a phone interview Wednesday, July 22. 'I'd say I'm ready to go,' Tagovailoa said. 'It's kind of those things where you start getting the itch to get back out on the field, to be able to compete. It's going to be a new setting, so that's what's even more exciting.'
    Footballguys view: Tagovailoa has all the skill to be a franchise quarterback...something the Dolphins haven't had since the days of Dan Marino. If healthy, Tagovailoa has the accuracy and athleticism to pay off for Fantasy GMs. Tagovailoa will compete with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the starting job in training camp. Even if he doesn't win the job for Week 1 (which he easily could win if healthy), Tagovailoa is bound to see the field at some point this season.

    Broncos | Jerry Jeudy agrees to rookie deal
    Denver Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy agreed to terms Thursday, July 23, on his four-year, $15.192 million rookie deal that includes a team option for a fifth year, per NFL rules. He will receive 71 percent of his $8.61 million signing bonus upfront, and the entire contract is fully guaranteed.
    Footballguys view: Jeudy was arguably the best wide receiver in arguably the best wide receiver draft class in NFL history. He has tremendous quickness and can make defenders look silly in the open field. His quickness allows him to run great and sharp routes, something most rookie receivers can't do. Jeudy should instantly become a favorite target of QB Drew Lock this season.

    Cowboys | CeeDee Lamb agrees
    Dallas Cowboys first-round pick WR CeeDee Lamb agreed to a four-year, $14.01 million deal Thursday, July 23. The deal includes a fifth-year option.
    Footballguys view: Lamb is a fantastic player and reminds many in the scouting community of DeAndre Hopkins (Cardinals) because of his athleticism, body control and ability to make crazy catches seem routine. We'll see how he works his way into the mix along with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup. The Cowboys have a great trio of wide receivers, arguably the best in the league, and their offense should be one of the most high-powered units this season.

    NFL | Antonio Brown actually not done
    Updating previous reports, free-agent WR Antonio Brown (Patriots) posted on Instagram that he doesn't want to retire and called on the NFL to finish its personal conduct investigations. 'I have complied with each and every ask of your investigations throughout the past 11 months,' Brown wrote. 'You have had access to all of my phones, you know what the deal is in each and every situation that the media has distorted. I have been seeing the therapist you asked me to, I have worked on all aspects of my life this past year and have become a better man because of it.'
    Footballguys view: He just can't walk away, and his latest retirement (at least the third time he's done that this calendar year) didn't last long. When the NFL makes a decision on his legal issues then Brown should be back in the league. We expect teams like the Seahawks, Buccaneers and Washington to potentially show interest.

    Seahawks | Seattle expected to pursue Josh Gordon
    Free-agent WR Josh Gordon (Seahawks) is a player the Seattle Seahawks would like to re-sign if he is reinstated, according to 710 ESPN's John Clayton.
    Footballguys view: Gordon has been indefinitely suspended but he is hoping to get reinstated before the start of training camp. ESPN's Brady Henderson reports that Gordon has continued to live in Seattle. This reunion seems likely if Gordon is allowed to play. He'd give the Seahawks more veteran depth behind Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.

    Buccaneers | Four-year contract for Ke'Shawn Vaughn
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers third-round draft choice RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Buccaneers Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Vaughn is a three-down running back who is always looking for the big play. He's got the ability to score from anywhere on the field but sometimes will dance too much looking for the big play rather than just take what a defense gives him. Vaughn will compete in training camp for the starting job with Ronald Jones.

    Redskins | Antonio Gibson signs contract
    Washington Redskins third-round draft choice RB/WR Antonio Gibson signed a four-year contract with Washington Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Gibson is one of the most versatile players from the 2020 NFL draft class. He can line up as a slot receiver and make plays as a pass-catcher. He can also line up in the backfield and make plays as a running back. We'll see how Washington uses him in a jam-packed backfield led by Derrius Guice. We appreciate Gibson in dynasty formats due to his all-purpose skill set.

    Redskins | Four-year deal for Antonio Gandy-Golden
    Washington Redskins fourth-round draft choice WR Antonio Gandy-Golden signed a four-year contract with the Redskins Wednesday, July 22, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Gandy-Golden bullied opponents in college at Liberty. He can win contested catches with his size, leaping ability and wingspan. Gandy-Golden isn't the fastest receiver (4.60 40-yard dash) but can win with size near pay dirt or when it's time to move the chains. We'll see how he works his way up the depth chart in Washington as a rookie.
    Link to story




    Vikings | K.J. Osborn signs contract
    Minnesota Vikings fifth-round draft choice WR K.J. Osborn signed a four-year contract with the Vikings Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Osborn is fearless as a return man and that's where he should be able to carve out the best role in the NFL. He lacks a 'wow' factor as a receiver but does have great vision with the rock in his hands. He's at least a special teams player who could get on the field in four-or-five wide receiver sets.

    Steelers | Anthony McFarland signs rookie contract
    Pittsburgh Steelers fourth-round draft choice RB Anthony McFarland signed a four-year contract with the Steelers Tuesday, July 21. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: McFarland's game is all about speed. He's a big play just waiting to happen and will work as a change-of-pace back behind James Conner this year. McFarland's dynasty value is greater than he re-draft value at this point.
    Link to story




    Ravens | Devin Duvernay signs contract
    Baltimore Ravens third-round draft choice WR Devin Duvernay signed a four-year contract with the Ravens Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Duvernay can flat out fly. In addition to getting by defense in a hurry, Duvernay does a good job of tracking passes over his shoulder. Duvernay has toughness to his game and can toy with defenders after the catch. We'll see where the rookie can fit in behind Marquise Brown in the Ravens pecking order at the wide receiver position.

    Broncos | Four-year deal for Albert Okwuegbunam
    Denver Broncos fourth-round draft choice TE Albert Okwuegbunam agreed to terms on a four-year contract with the Broncos Wednesday, July 22, worth $4,044,040, according to a source. The deal includes a $749,040 signing bonus.
    Footballguys view: Okwuegbunam was a favorite target of Broncos QB Drew Lock when they were teammates at Missouri. In two seasons, Lock and Okwuegbunam hooked up for 17 touchdowns. Noah Fant is the starter for the Broncos, and the 2019 first-round pick has plenty of upside at the tight end position. Okwuegbunam is larger, stronger and faster -- plus he has a connection with Lock. He could get some red-zone looks as a rookie working as a backup to Fant in 2020.

    Titans | Darrynton Evans under contract
    Tennessee Titans third-round draft choice RB Darrynton Evans signed a four-year contract with the Titans Wednesday, July 22. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Derrick Henry's new long-term contract was a gut punch for Evans fantasy value. The rookie from Appalachian State will be a clear backup who gets a few touches here and there. Evans is a hard-charging running back who understands angles and will hit the hole quickly.

    Patriots | Julian Edelman catches passes from Cam Newton
    New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman participated in a throwing session with QB Cam Newton that Newton posted on his Instagram account Wednesday, July 22.

    Saturday Update

    Bengals | A.J. Green excited for offense
    Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green said recently he has yet to meet new Bengals QB Joe Burrow in person, but he was quick to add that he is excited about the team's offensive talent and says he doesn't expect it to take long for everyone to get on the same page. 'A lot of people play into the (narrative of) 'how long does it take to get clicking,' ' Green said. 'We're all football players doing this for a long time. (Andy Dalton) and I came in in 2011 and we went 9-7, and we didn't have any kind of expectations. I feel like when you have the No. 1 pick, and what we did in free agency and me coming back, (Tyler Boyd) is coming back, John (Ross), Tee (Higgins) and all these pieces that we added on defense, I feel like the talent level that we have now is way different than what we had in 2011.'

'(I) just feel like I'm one of the top backs in the game, even (if) people don't give me respect or credit or anything like that. I'm still out here trying to show what I can do.'

    Vikings | Dalvin Cook unlikely to hold out
    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook is unlikely to hold out during the 2020 season because of new rules within the collective bargaining agreement, according to ESPN.com's Courtney Cronin. He would stand to be fined $50,000 for each day of camp missed and he would be unable to recover those funds even if an extension is worked out. In addition, Cook would not accrue a year of service toward free agency if he doesn't appear at camp by the mandatory reporting date or if he leaves the team after that date. Cook is slated to earn $1.3 million during the final year of his rookie contract.

    NFL | LeSean McCoy talking with teams
    Free agent RB LeSean McCoy (Chiefs) said Friday, July 24, that he's had recent discussions with a 'few' unnamed teams as he seeks to continue his career. 'But I think the biggest thing is to find the right fit,' McCoy said on NFL Network. 'Find the right fit for me. I think at the point in my career, not just playing football. I want to play for the right team. I want to be able to contribute. I want to be able to win another championship. You can't go from playing with the Chiefs with all that talent and winning a championship to now just trying to play. I'm the type of guy, I want to come in a room, challenge the running backs get them better. Be a veteran leader. All the type of things I want to bring to a team. So, just got to find the right fit for me.'
    Footballguys view: The Eagles come to mind immediately as a possible destination considering his history with the team and their desire to add a veteran back. McCoy hurt the ADP of Damien Williams when he signed with the Chiefs after Buffalo released him right before the season, but by the end of the season, McCoy was a healthy scratch, so don't let him affect ADP too much wherever he lands.

    Denver Broncos WR KJ Hamler agreed to terms on his rookie contract Friday, July 24. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
    Footballguys view: Hamler should be the #1 slot receiver for the Broncos right away, which means the Daesean Hamilton pick didn't work out - substituting one Penn State receiver for another. Hamler provides speed and quickness to make big plays with excellent options at outside receiver and tight end, although his role could be capped by more two tight end sets after the Broncos also drafted Albert Okwuegbunam, Drew Lock's favorite touchdown target at Missouri.

    Falcons | Hayden Hurst relishing opportunity
    Atlanta Falcons TE Hayden Hurst was excited for the March trade to Atlanta as he sought a chance to become a featured tight end.
    Footballguys view: Austin Hooper turned this role into the fantasy TE1 for a stretch last year. Hurst could add more value after the catch and quickly turn into Matt Ryan's favorite target when he can't get the ball to Julio Jones or Calvin Ridley. Hurst is a solid draft target outside of the top 10 tight ends who can still finish well within the top 10 if he stays healthy.

    Wow, 49ers and Cowboys were heavily linked with trading for him also.

    Sunday Update

    Eagles | JJ Arcega-Whiteside in a better spot?
    Philadelphia Eagles WR JJ Arcega-Whiteside should 'be able to focus on the X position' this season and could start if WR Alshon Jeffery (foot) is not ready for the start of the year, according to Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com.

    Chargers | Justin Herbert officially signs
    Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Chargers QB Justin Herbert signed his rookie deal Saturday, July 25.

    Bears | Chicago moves on from Adam Shaheen
    Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen was traded to the Miami Dolphins Saturday, July 25, in exchange for a conditional 2021 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source.

    Dolphins | Miami acquires Adam Shaheen
    Chicago Bears TE Adam Shaheen was acquired by the Miami Dolphins Saturday, July 25, in exchange for a conditional 2021 sixth-round draft choice, according to a source.
    Footballguys view: Shaheen was a small school tight end who was an interesting prospect a few years ago. He's done little to nothing in the NFL and he's been a disappointment for the Bears. Now, with the Dolphins we'll see Shaheen get a fresh start as a reserve in the pecking order behind starter Mike Gesicki.

    NFL | Martavis Bryant not ready to play
    Free-agent WR Martavis Bryant (Raiders) is receiving interest from several teams, but he still has not applied for reinstatement at this point.
    Footballguys view: Bryant hopes to play at some point but still needs to do more work. It sounds like Bryant may not play in 2020 but could be aiming for a return in 2021. Bryant will be 28-years old next offseason but it sounds like some teams could still have interest.

    Chargers | Justin Herbert close to agreement
    Los Angeles Chargers first-round draft choice QB Justin Herbert is close to an agreement on a four-year contract worth around $26.6 million, according to a source.
    Footballguys view: Herbert has the size, athleticism and arm strength that teams covet. His big arm can stretch the field vertically and Herbert can make throws into tight windows that others can't. He's athletic enough to scramble for first downs if necessary and can work well on play-action passes. Herbert is set to compete for the starting job with Tyrod Taylor in training camp. He's easily the quarterback of the future for the Chargers.

    Raiders | Vegas signs Bryan Edwards
    Las Vegas Raiders third-round draft choice WR Bryan Edwards signed a four-year contract with the Raiders Saturday, July 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Edwards is a fine size/speed prospect who showed a nose for the end zone during his college career at South Carolina. He uses his frame well to box out smaller defenders and is generally considered a smooth (but not sudden) athlete with the ball in his hands. The Raiders will use Edwards as a reserve receiver as a rookie, but the future could be bright for him if his game gets polished in a year or two.

    Raiders | Lynn Bowden signs rookie deal
    Las Vegas Raiders third-round draft choice RB Lynn Bowden signed a four-year contract with the Raiders Saturday, July 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.
    Footballguys view: Bowden is one of the most versatile players in the 2020 NFL draft. He was a wide receiver/running back/quarterback in college at Kentucky and can play a variety of roles for the Raiders. Bowden is not polished as a route runner but is dangerous with the rock in his hands. He could get a few carries behind Josh Jacobs here and there.

    Getting 2 1st round picks for him was a nice haul for the Jets.

    The Jets got a great haul for sure...especially considering that they did not have much leverage.
