Except that there is literally zero chance the Dolphins trade two draft picks for McCaffrey.  They wouldnt do it for one of their firsts.

Yeah they aren’t the Portland Horned Owls!

All of the Jets recent poor personnel decisions and coaching hires were made by Mike Maccagnan. We'll have to see what Joe Douglas does and his vision for the team but adding Becton at OT and Mims at WR were good moves to support a young quarterback. Plus they have some extra draft capital to work with this year due to the Adams trade so it may not take them long to turn the ship around if Lawrence is as good as advertised. Draft Lawrence, add some more weapons in free agency/draft, and hire Bieniemy as the head coach and they wouldn't be in a terrible spot. 

Plus for Lawrence if he's the guy that can turn it around for the Jets and get them back into contention he will basically be a demi-god in NYC. 

This goes underappreciated.

We see how quickly it worked for the Dolphins, who were basically having a fire sale the last two years. 

If Joe Douglas is good at his job, it shouldn't take that much time with that sort of capital. They have Becton and Mims, as mentioned. Add in Perine, Doctson*, Herndon, Crowder,  and Perriman on offense assuming all return, and a couple solid O-line guys, and you don't have an absolutely empty cupboard of an offense. By no means great, but we've seen worse options at skilk positions, and that's further assuming some of their draft picks don't go to those roles as well.

That certainly sounds like a guy who is planning to move on to the NFL.

It's also taking a year off the back end of his NFL career when he'll be getting paid the most, not to mention the endorsements aren't going to make up for a fully guaranteed NFL contract in additional to the more plentiful endorsements he'd get as an NFL rookie.  Especially in a big market like New York if the Jets tank comes to fruition.

People bring that up as a selling point for going to New York, but he would probably need more endorsements because the cost of living is so much higher there.  When all the dust settles, does going to New York really mean more money from the endorsement side of things?  I don't know the answer to this, but have always wondered.

Does NY really bring more endorsements? I don’t see Darnold or Jones anywhere and the QB from Cleveland is in half the commercials on TV.

It probably used to before 24 hour television and the internet made marketing a nonstop, worldwide business as opposed to a targeted, regional one. It might still play a factor for non stars. I've seen many middle of the road Lions players doing local endorsements over the years for car dealerships, restaurants, furniture companies, etc. I imagine middle of the road players in larger markets probably make a little more for doing those and there's probably more options.

But as a star, the TV is plastered with Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes, and Baker Mayfield whose markets are 22nd, 27th, and 14th respectively. Someone like Lawrence is going to be doing ads for whatever shoe company he signs with (Nike, Adidas, Under Armor), a nationwide insurance company (State Farm, Progressive, etc.), a streaming service (Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.), and who knows what else. In order to keep those types of endorsements, he'll have to live up to his draft hype of course.

The players that truly want to maximize their earnings would be best to do so in a state with no income tax (Florida, Nevada, Texas, Washington), keeping an average of 13% more of their salary.
