When it comes to the New York Jets, Trevor Lawrence has leverage

There is little doubt at this point that Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence will be the No. 1 overall pick in next spring’s NFL Draft if he decides to turn pro. However, Lawrence told the media earlier this week that while he still has plans leave for the NFL, it is a decision he hasn’t made in full. Full Story »

he might as well go this year. Jets are going to be in the mix for being the worst team every year.


For a team to be 0-7 in the NFL they have got more problems

than a top rated or even a generational QB can fix. Will be interesting to see how this all plays out but if Trevor goes to the Jets he needs to squeeze every last cent out of his Jets contract because he will have his work cut out for him.

Insulting!

Saying that the JETS have been mired in mediocrity is an INSULT to fans of the Dallas Cowboys, a team that has truly been mired in mediocrity.

The Jets just $uck.

Please, for your own sanity, please tell me you aren't a Cowboys fan. I live in Texas and I wouldn't wish playing for the Cowboys on a Coot or anybody else I didn't like.

It would be great if the Patriots and Jets could work a
plan so that Trevor could wind up on the Patriots team.
He could definitely beat out Newton. Trade Newton to the
Jets.

Let me stop you right there.

As a Dolphins fan, I cannot get behind this ?? the Patriots already have plenty of success - let them faulter for a few years.

Have TL sent to Miami so I don't have to watch my team play him twice a year for 10+ years ??

Perhaps he laying the ground work for 'encouraging' the jets to trade their pick for multiple picks. "If you are planning on drafting me, I'll stay another year."

Just speculating.

I'm not nearly smart enough to figure out how Trevor could use his leverage, even if he wants to, to his advantage.

With the NFL having a rookie salary cap, he can't hold out for more money.

So, I guess his options are playing hardball, the way Eli Manning did. "I'm not signing with you. Trade me or I'll just sit out and wait until next year."

Or, he could come out before the draft and say, "If the Jets draft me, I'm staying at Clemson."

The point is, he will be playing a very expensive game of Chicken.

Without a salary cap, I would say the best way he could proceed would be to hire Jimmy Sexton as his agent. That guy is amazing. He got Jimbo a 75 mill contract with aTm. He got Muschamp a huge contract with SC. He does a better job for his clients getting them more money than they deserve than any other agent in sports. (Note, this is not an endorsement of Jimmy Sexton the man. It is just stating the fact that if Trevor wants to play hardball, then Sexton would be the best guy to have negotiating for him.)

I still think that someway, somehow, he ends up in the NFL next year.

But, if the NIL agreement goes into effect before the draft and Trevor could earn $10,000,000 while playing at Clemson next year, then all bets are off.

I could see TL getting well into the 6-figure range but 10s of millions? Nah

By all means he'd be comfortable but I wouldn't bet on that much offhand - who knows what the exact wording is going to look like once it is approved.

TL wouldn't need a scholarship for sure ?? I would have loved to go through college with expenses paid and basically 6 figures guaranteed made for the year just on my ability to ball out in football ??????

Hello Nike ... who can pay Trevor any amount. For legal SME's, is there a limit on payments that TL16 can legally receive?

There's a 'salary cap' but then there's also signing bonuses and perhaps influence on picks in the draft which will work well with his style.

Any team picking Lawrence knows this last bit means Jets could draft someone in their second or third pick that would be either a good reciever or runner... or both(Kendrick and Etienne) would be interesting to see what shakes out anyways.


i'd hate to have to move up there too. if you're gonna pay

By the way, for those of you dissing the Jets, which is pretty much all of you, there are many worse teams! Over the last 10 years there are 11 teams with worse records over all than the Jets! True, they are pretty bad right now, but there are bright days ahead with, finally, a good GM and some good draft picks in 2020! Get rid of Gace, spend lots of money (they have lots of it after cleaning house of the big money makers) and trade Darnold for another first round pick and get some good OL and they’ll be in good shape! Bring on TL and go

I agree. For heaven's sake, they did win a Super Bowl! I can't say that about my Lions.
