Jets acquire Alex Lewis from Baltimore

Recommended Posts

At worst he is good depth in an area of need.  Another slick move by Joey D.

Love how he is addressing the OL already.

SHows that Joe Douglas isn't gonna sit around, hes trying to make sure their is OL depth and not ignore one of the most important positions.

Jets OL depth 

Edoga, Compton, Harrison, Lewis

That's actually not bad really.  We quietly have some decent backups on the OL assuming Edoga keeps playing well.

Savvy move. Lewis has NFL experience at both LG and LT, and was a LG/LT/blocking TE in college. He should serve as good depth from left to right if he can stay healthy. Despite many reports that the Jets OLine was exceeding expectations early in camp, I love how it hasn't stopped Douglas from adding reinforcements. I'd be ecstatic if we somehow swung a trade for Trent Williams, but I'm comfortable with the group we have right now.

Next up: CB.

I was about to drop his name here early day but decided to against it.  Jets need some extra help at T not IOL at the moment.   Still is cool with him aboard as he is natural LG who may step in for Osemele some point.

Swing T I imagine in running sets. And someone who can push Winters. If nothing else it’s good depth behind our OHs and he’s younger

This is a great move. It doesnt cost us a lot, we have had a ton of 6s and 7th round picks with Mac so who cares AND the best part is we keep the 3rd waiver claim position. Very smart move by Douglas. Take a draft pick, let us secure our guy, and still use our waiver spot as an advantage. Also love him prioritizing the line.

We don’t lose the 3rd spot until early in the season. So we can keep using the waiver wire without issue.

Still a good move though.

Yeah you are right, is it week 3? I like the new GM being aggressive with the point of attack. The trenches give you a chance to win every game. This guy gets it.

Mr. Douglas understands what the Jets needs are and is focused on addressing those needs.   What a novel idea.

Yeah after week 3.  However, Jets made the trade for Alex Lewis before Ravens actually put him on the waiver, thanking to his big mouth. lol.

Yup. Week 3. 

I agree. Keep taking shots along the OL. We don’t have to worry about OL bring neglected while Joe D is in charge.

How many OL do we need?

The answer is more. 

Great job by Douglas to try and build a foundation up front. 

Pollack has been doing a good job so far with guys helping keep Sam clean.

Great to see we all on the same page, I agree with all you people that we finally got a first rate front office.
