With uncertainty involving the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and the overall structure of the 2011 New York Jets (17 free agents), the team wasted little time before making it’s first move during the off-season. According to sources, the Jets will use their lone franchise tag on linebacker, David Harris. Harris had 99 tackles and three sacks last season, but recorded 127 tackles in 2007 and 2009.

The Jets franchise tagging Harris is contingent upon the Players’ Association fighting for the right to franchise in the new CBA. By tagging Harris, the Jets are guaranteeing him one year of at least $9.4 million. Harris is seeking a long-term which both sides should be able to agree on.

Other notable Jet free agents include: Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards, Brad Smith, and Antonio Cromartie.

Rex was Brilliant Today

The buildup was intense. Players were vowing to end the careers of other players. Coaches were having fun jawing at each other through the media. However, when the ball was kicked off at 4:40 pm this afternoon, all talking stopped and bodies started flying. When the dust settled, the Jets beat the Pats up and won, 28-21. Tom was clearly not Tom today as he was sacked five times and finished with a 89.0 passer rating. In contrast, Mark Sanchez played the best game of his career, throwing for three touchdowns and no interceptions. With the win, the Jets will now travel to the Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers for the right to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

What will Jet fans take away from this victory?

The New York Jets have four key players that need contract extensions. None of the four players, Darrelle Revis, Nick Mangold, D’Brickashaw Ferguson, nor David Harris have received new deals. Of the four, Darrelle Revis needs it the most. Revis is set to make a base salary of $1 million this season and has threatened to hold out until the Jets give him a new deal. With the Jets still having thousands of PSLs to sell before the season starts, my question is, why the delay?

In the finale of our four part series, we’ll take a look at the New York Jets and their defensive needs for the looming 2010 NFL Draft. Last year, the Jets’ defense was phenomenal, leading the league in scoring defense (14.8 points per game) and total yards (252.3 yards per game).
