Jared Cook played well in spots and made the memorable catch against Dallas
Green Bay’s receiver rotation features Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb, and Montgomery could fit in that mix. Depth at the position is not an issue. Green Bay’s flashiest Cheap Green Bay Packers Jerseys offseason addition was veteran tight end Martellus Bennett, who won a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots last season.
Jared Cook played well in spots and made the memorable catch against Dallas, but Bennett is a clear upgrade at the position and might be the best tight end Rodgers has had since Jermichael Finley. In fact, the Packers’ leading tight end has averaged 35 catches, 403 yard and four TDs per season since Finley’s departure. Bennett should be able to surpass that. Green Bay also added Lance Kendricks. The pressure is on Richard Rodgers to earn his spot now.
It may look like a poorly disguised attempt to be terrible, but the Jets aren’t doing anything new. It’s just step one of rebuilding an NFL franchise. Plenty have done it before and it will be done again.
Teams start by purging as many high-priced contracts as possible and pushing down the age of the roster.
There are only four players on the Jets’ roster right now 30 or older, including McCown. The only player due to count more than $8.5 million against the team’s salary cap is defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson — the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears are the only other teams with just one player over that mark.
In the last five years, the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, and Cheap Ice Hockey Jerseys Cleveland Browns have all made attempts to blow it up and start fresh — and all three made similar moves.
It also meant rough times for each franchise.
