The Jets had four quarterbacks on their roster last season, and it’s quite possible that none of them has a future with the team. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Geno Smith are pending free agents. Bryce Petty was awful (19.4 QBR) in a four-game audition. Christian Hackenberg received so little practice time that it’s difficult to know anything about him in an NFL context. The Jets found that they weren’t nearly as close to competing as they thought they were after a 10-6 season in 2015. It’s going to be tough to do much about that this offseason. The Jets are projected to be more than $8 million over the 2017 salary-cap limit, the worst projected situation in the entire league.
They should be able to find a blue-chip player with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft. Who knows? The Jets wouldn’t be the first team to pull a decent starting quarterback from nowhere. (They did so just two years ago with Fitzpatrick.) They could upgrade their draft assets or possibly get a good player in return if they trade defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson.
“This is bulls—!” Cousins yells at Salvatore. “They don’t want to listen!”
“Take a deep breath!”
“No, you take a deep breath!”

Of all the issues that have plagued Cousins over his career, his relationship with officials is among the most exasperating — to Cousins, to his coaches, to the NBA. Since he entered the league in 2010, Cousins has amassed 107 technical fouls, 24 more than Russell Westbrook, who ranks second. Last year Cousins was the only player suspended for eclipsing the threshold of 16 technicals in a season.
