QB competition brewing as Jets look to settle on best option

Though veteran Josh McCown still spent most of Monday’s practice with the first team, 22-year-old Christian Hackenberg received his most reps with the top unit in training camp. Hackenberg, who took 21 overall reps, had six opportunities with the first team, and overall, went 10-of-21 with one touchdown. (New York Post)

Nerdy Football Analysis: This means there could be a real QB competition brewing in New Jersey. Mike Maccagnan said yesterday on Michael Kay’s radio show that the team is not tanking, but the jury’s still out on how effective either the journeyman McCown or the very raw Hackenberg will be without the requisite offensive weapons. WR Quincy Enunwa was just lost for the season with bulging disk in his neck. None of the Jets QBs are worth more than desperation wire fodder.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Ooof. As if the Jets could get any worse, they lose what might be their best receiver and a player they were counting on to be in the starting lineup Week 1. For now, Robby Anderson is the only recognizable name(?) in the receiving group. As much as they might not want to, the Jets are likely to add a free agent receiver shortly.

Jets couldn’t find a trade partner

After GM Mike Maccagnan announced that Eric Decker’s departure was imminent, the Jets have released the veteran receiver.

“We think very highly of Eric. Our focus right now is seeing our young players, how they do,” said Maccagnan earlier this week. “We wish Eric, going forward, a lot of success.” (NewYorkJets.com)

Nerdy Football Analysis: The Jets had been exploring trade options for Decker but couldn’t work out a deal. The Jets are flushing out the talent pool and rebuilding from the ground floor. Decker is coming off hip and shoulder injuries that limited him to three games last season but he should have interest from the Bills and Eagles who both were rumored to have interest in Jeremy Maclin.
