Jets have enough assets to reinvent New York Sack Exchange

Forty years after he was drafted as an unheralded prospect out of East Central Oklahoma, Mark Gastineau remains the New York Jets' all-time sack leader.

With the third pick in the 2019 NFL draft, and with $102 million in salary-cap room, the Jets are in such prime position that it's almost impossible for them to come out of this offseason without a new stud in the front seven.

The point is, something needs to happen, because new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, like his predecessors, won't be able to field an elite defense unless the Jets upgrade the pass rush. In 2018, they were fourth worst in the NFL based on the ESPN pass-rush win rate (42 percent) -- the ability to beat a block within 2.5 seconds.
