None of these QB's are worth a first round pick.
And barely a second.

It would not surprise me if the Jets cut Marshall and signed Cruz and the Giants signed Marshall.

Jennings made Gaborik look like Cal Ripken. OBJ/Shepard and Perkins are the primary guys so there will be plenty of free agents who will cost less and be more productive, and the draft as well.
THis. Perkins was ten times the player Jennings was. Cannot stand Jennings

Why would they? Just for spite? Cruz didn't show a whole lot last year.

Because it's the Jets. And if he feels he has something to prove they might get him cheap.

I would guess that Cruz would look to go to a contender. I don't see him a good fit for the Jets. Or Cruz as a good fit for the Jets.

The Jets like their young receivers; it's one of the reasons why they let go of Marshall and will let go of Decker. I don't know if they'd want Cruz. Also, I'm sure Cruz would want to go somewhere with an established QB and offense to help rebuild his value.

Marshall still has a good amount left in the tank. He's a good add for the Giants.

Marshall is a tremendous add for the Giants. Exactly what they needed at WR.

The Marshall signing is utterly fantastic.

Marshall is an awesome dude (when his team isn't a disaster) and an awesome player. Glad he's a Giant, but I do hope there's still some cap room to add an above-average OL and TE. I saw they were interested in Fasano which would be a strong pickup.

also just saw that Marshall could conceivably reach 1000 career catches while he's here.

Absolutely love the Marshall deal. If Shepard, OBJ and him stay on the field Manning is going to have a field day. Adding his size and catching ability, with Shepard having already gone through his rookie season is going to really make this a versatile receiving corps.

And I actually feel he will be a positive for OBJ. This is exciting all around. No brainer.

Yeah would love to bring in a solid TE to solidify things up the middle. If Eli had any kind of threat in that part of the field (and more importantly some blocking) you would think they would be unstoppable in the red zone with the weapons they have.

From what I read Marshall asked to be released and the Jets then offered him an extension and he turned it down

When Eli had a tall receiver he threw that beautiful fade into the back of the endzone. That will be back.

Very excited for the Marshall signing. Needed a big (as in tall) receiver.

His work on mental health stigma is something I take as an added bonus.

Marshall is a HUGE add and for somewhat cheap, very excited. Now go find a TE, and fix the O-line.

This is something I've been pushing to people.

Very underrated aspect of his character and I really think it's amazing and overlooked.

The Giants are going to have a phenomenal RB sitting in front of them at that pick.
Bet on it.
Then use the rest of the draft to find a edge rushing fool or an O linemen with a bad attitude.

Love the Marshall signing at 6mil per

Wish we could have traded our fourth for Allen with that cheap contract.

Please get Eli a LT Reese

Is ereck flowers still going to be "protecting" Eli because I don't care who his receivers are until they fix that blind side were struggling

Why did the Giants spend 16M on a FB? They signed the guy from the Vikings

edit..I guess he plays TE also seems like a lotta money
