Trevor Lawrence leaving it open to return for his senior season with Clemson.

Say it with me, Fireman Ed, J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets... :) 

 

In other words, if you fire Adam Gase, there is a chance I am willing to come to your team. Otherwise, all bets are off. I commend Joe Burrow for doing what he has been doing so far, same with Justin Herbert, going to a bad team but still producing even if they do not result in team Ws.

Remember that Peyton Manning did the exact same thing that Lawrence is thinking about doing. If Peyton had left after his junior season as many expected at the time then the J.E.T.S., Jets, Jets, Jets were positioned to draft him.  Knowing that...Peyton made the wise decision to return for his senior year and ultimately was drafted by Bill Polian and the Colts.  The rest is history.

It's not only Gase, it's Woody Johnson (Jets owner) as well. 

IMO Joe Douglas has gotten himself into a bad situation.

Who believes the Jets can turn it round in one year. He should do an Elway or play out his senior year and do an Elway again if it means avoiding the Jets. A lousy team with a good QB is a lousy team.

This would be interesting.

 

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence set the NFL world on fire Tuesday when he said he would consider returning for his senior season rather than enter the 2021 NFL Draft.

This would be an entertaining twist for sure. He has until what, December to decide right?

Marketing, he is to graduate in December. He would end up doing a masters program id assume for the rest of his time

 

Wasn't Russell Wilson in the beginning of his masters program after transferring from NC State to Wisconsin before declaring for the NFL Draft?

 

Makes the Jets' decision to keep Darnold easy if that is the case with TL staying put.

It would certainly add a twist.   I'm hoping he stays.

Me too. Jets will destroy him. Course we destroyed Andrew luck so not sure we can point to that argument in this case very much

Good point.  I'm torn on this because I'm not in favor of players choosing were they go in the draft.   But with another year of eligibility to stay at college, I have no problem with him doing that.  Anyone know his financial situation?   Would the $$ be too enticing to pass up?   He's probably getting paid well at Clemson. haha

Probably. And being a D1 QB, he’s likely getting laid well too:lol:

I would assume as he was a grad transfer why he got to play right away

    • i rather the colts keep investing in offensive line and defense .   patriots for years did the right thing by  keeping solid but not great wrs and investing in defense and the line .   never pay for running backs keep drafting and same with wrs keep some cheap veterans and young guys . 
    • you dont trust ballard you dont think he knows his plan already .  the next year when needed to sign leonard nelson and smith , AC will take off 16 million cap space kelly drops down per year and glow is gone houston autry rhodes gone plus rivers gone .  that can be well over 65 million in new cap space . the key to keeping a team going is the draft look at the ravens they lost tons of great defenders in the early 2012 range and hit in the draft and now they still have a elite defense . 
    • You may be right.   But improved upon by free agency and not the draft likely means more money.  In some cases much more money depending on the player.      That formula of how much more money vs how much more performance is the math that makes or breaks many GM’s.  
    • my main point is  a lot of these guys on this list are dirt cheap .   even the veterans who are playing well are old so they will be cheap .  plus your not counting the draft .   we could still resign houston autry rhodes plus keep a  lot of cheap depth guys and be okay .  houston is making 8 million a year and now he is two years older and his sack numbers are gonna drop from last year we could get him for 5 million autry for 7 and rhodes for 7 and still have 21 million to sign a bunch of cheap depth guys like cox harris pascal muhammad and go get a cheap veteran wr
    • While those are good points I think it all depends on who is there at their pick. If a LT worth the #1 pick get him. It's not a sure thing that AC will be here. He may retire. IMO his play has deteriorated, may be age related? Rookie contract also enters the picture. Do we blitz enough to need a 1st rd pass rusher in this defense? We get plenty of pressure rushing 4.    Plus did Rhodes earn more than a 1 year deal? I am sure he will have a couple of teams that will sign him as good as he has played. He was signed to a prove it deal and he proved it.   Plus you can ignore Ballard may be looking to make a deal up or down in the first round. Lots of direction this draft could turn.
