The New York Jets now have to compete with former head coach Rex Ryan, who’s now with the Buffalo Bills. And Ryan has recently traded inside linebacker Kiko Alonzo to the Philadelphia Eagles for running back LeSean McCoy. Ryan traded Alonzo expecting to sign Jets inside linebacker David Harris, whom he coached for all those years.

But that ain’t gonna happen because the Jets signed Harris to a three-year deal so he wouldn’t hit free agency. The Jets also traded for former Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall to improve the offense. Receiver Eric Decker can now go back to being the good No.2 receiver he is with Marshall, a real No. 1, coming in.

And with all the cap space the Jets have, there’s a lot more they can do.
