Jets Worked Out Josh Freeman Last Week

The Jets gave former Buccaneers, Vikings, and (briefly) Giants quarterback Josh Freeman a workout last week. Josh Freeman had recent workout with Jets. I'm told he did well. Several other teams taking hard look at him. — mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) March 16, 2015 Some clarity on Josh Freeman's workout with the Jets: It occurred before the Ryan Fitzpatrick trade. #nyj — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 16, 2015 There is no harm in working a player out, but I think the Jets made the right decision going in another direction.

A look at what's going on around the New York Jets: 1. Finally, a real competition: Incredibly, the Ryan Fitzpatrick trade was overshadowed by Darrelle Revis and the flurry of other free-agent signings, but it was the second-most significant move of the week, behind Revis. That's because Fitzpatrick could be the starting quarterback. Team officials haven't commented, but I've talked to people who believe Fitzpatrick was acquired to be more than a mentor/insurance policy for Geno Smith.

State of the Jets' QB sitution: Another year, another Band-Aid

Some takeaways on the New York Jets' trade for quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick: 1. This was another solid move by Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan, who deals a conditional seventh-round pick (2016) to the Houston Texans for a quarterback who went 6-6 last season on a 9-7 team. Fitzpatrick has been on the Jets' radar for nearly two months as they monitored the Houston QB situation. Actually, this move is similar to what the previous regime did last year by signing Michael Vick -- an over-30 player with experience in the offensive coordinator's system and a guy who can provide competition for...
