Last year the New York Jets caught a lot of grief for their inexperienced quarterback room heading into the season.

Fast forward a year and now the room is viewed a lot differently. So much so that a trade could be looming in the distance thanks to a surplus.

A Very Interesting Situation Play

Connor Hughes of The Athletic revealed his early final 53-man roster projection and featured a juicy nugget.

He projected that the Jets would keep all three of their guys who are on the roster right now in Zach Wilson, Joe Flacco, and Mike White.

However, he said a scenario exists where the only two quarterbacks retained are Wilson and Flacco.

He said that White “could garner trade interest” if he has a strong offseason.

Hughes argued that a less than stellar quarterback class in this past April’s 2022 NFL draft always leaves the door open for scarcity at the position.

Those “quarterback-needy teams” could call up general manager Joe Douglas and offer a “mid-round pick as return compensation.”

Hughes said that situation playing out is “more unlikely than likely” but did say it was a possibility.

Speaking of unlikely, White’s debut last year still seems like a dream that never really happened.

The 27-year-old threw for over 405 passing yards with three touchdowns, and finished with an 82 percent completion percentage.

That was the second-most passing yards by a quarterback in his first start only behind Cam Newton with 422. White was also the first Jets quarterback to surpass the 400 passing yards mark since Vinny Testaverde back in 2000.

On top of his individual success, he brought the Jets back from an 11-point deficit winning 34-31. That success helped enshrine White into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and his status grew significantly among teams in the NFL.

Right now the Jets have a very good situation with an established veteran, a young quarterback they believe in, and a developmental project that the locker room loves.

If Gang Green goes into the season with those three, they will be perfectly satisfied.

However last season the Jets entered the season with only two quarterbacks on the roster.

Ultimately in the NFL, roster construction is a numbers game.

If you keep only two quarterbacks, that gives you flexibility at a variety of other positions on the roster. Vice-versa if you keep three, that means you have to take food off of the plate of another position.

That could become pivotal at certain spots like the defensive line. We talked about it earlier this week about that unit having so much depth.

The other 31 teams are going to be camped outside the Jets team facilities waiting to see which defensive linemen they cut.

Dolphins Tua Tagovailoa tackles several topics on Tyreek Hills podcast

The last time Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa spoke to the media, he appeared as open and confident as he has been in his two-plus years in the NFL.

After the jabs thrown at his critics in that interview session during mandatory minicamp in early June, Tagovailoa maintained the same tone appearing on new star teammate and wide receiver Tyreek Hill’s podcast, “It Needed To Be Said.”

“The thing I don’t want people to get twisted: I am very humble, but don’t let that [come across as] me not being confident in myself because I am very confident in myself,” Tagovailoa proclaimed on the podcast released late Thursday night.

Tagovailoa has expressed himself more freely this offseason, a possible byproduct of Hill and new Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel making a concerted effort to instill confidence in the quarterback going into his third professional season. It’s a reversal from the apparent pressure Tagovailoa was constantly under while led by previous Dolphins coach Brian Flores.

Among Hill’s comments this offseason, he famously deemed Tagovailoa a more accurate passer than his former quarterback with the Kansas City Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes, in the debut of his podcast. His take drew a week’s worth of commentary and criticism from national media outlets — and even death threats from fans. In the latest episode, Hill introduced Tagovailoa as the “most accurate quarterback in the NFL.”

Tagovailoa is largely humble on and off the field, but he detailed how he started finding himself get animated to counter trash talkers in college when he played for the Alabama Crimson Tide.

“I wasn’t much of a talker when I was at Alabama,” he said, “so when I hear guys talking, kind of the notion was, ‘Okay, I feel like I’m a silent assassin, so I’m going to go after this guy now.’ And then you go after him and they start arguing with other guys, but you know, it’s just for your clarity, ‘I started that. That’s what you get.’”

Tagovailoa touched on working to grow his chemistry with his new elite pass catcher, Hill, and he threw another jab at critics in analyzing it.

“I don’t think it’s good enough. I’ve been underthrowing him so many times,” Tagovailoa quipped. “He’s got people talking about how I can’t throw the deep ball.”

Said Hill: “I feel like our chemistry will get there. It’s going to be about 2 a.m. one night. You’re going to wake up. You’re going to walk into your kitchen. I’m going to be in there washing your dishes. That’s how good our chemistry is going to be.”

The two shared an anecdote from early in organized team activities. Tagovailoa mentioned getting together to throw, and Hill pushed for Tagovailoa to take more of a lead instead of asking what worked for everyone else

“[Hill] said, ‘You let us know,’” Tagovailoa recalled, “and I said, ‘What do you think will be best?’ He said, ‘Hold up, hold up. Man, you know you’re the quarterback?’

“‘Yeah, I know I’m the quarterback. I’m trying to get what the feel is in the receiver room.’ He said, ‘No. You tell us where to go. That’s where we’re all going.’ That’s where we started.”

Tagovailoa said he found it admirable how, although Hill is an established star in the NFL, he’s willing to listen to perspective from younger players and is open to learn from things other players pick up.

Tagovailoa admitted he was starstruck at first when seeing Dolphins legend Dan Marino in team facilities as a rookie, something that has since become commonplace with the Hall of Fame quarterback often in position meetings.

“You don’t want to show the emotions of, ‘Dude, this is Dan Marino in the room with us.’ You don’t want to do that,” Tagovailoa said. “You want to be a professional. It was surreal for me when Dan started calling my name. I’m like, ‘Look, he said Tua. Tua came out of Dan’s mouth.’ Dan Marino, I wasn’t even born when Dan was doing what he was doing.”

Tagovailoa spoke about how his experience at Alabama and the competitive environment with current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and New England Patriots’ Mac Jones in the same quarterback room helped shape him. What stood out to him is how, despite the positional competition, how the three were willing to assist each other.

“[Hurts] was established already, and for me and Mac to have come in, him being able to take us under his wing, I thought that was cool,” Tagovailoa said. “We all helped each other grow as players, and that kind of helped the team out too. Because, you knew when you were going against the second or third team, it wasn’t easy.”
