Craig: Jets will be best team in NFL on paper next season


Craig Carton believes the Jets will wind up with both Aaron Rodgers and Odell Beckham Jr., two flashy additions that would slot in with an already talented young core.

Should those two signings happen, Craig is ready to declare Gang Green the best team in the league heading into next season, at least when strictly looking at depth charts.

“If you take aside for a moment, the most ridiculous skill of Patrick Mahomes, who can make everybody around him better…the New York Jets, on paper, will be the best team in football,” Craig declared.

“Doesn’t mean they’re winning a Super Bowl. But the New York Jets, on paper, will be the best team in the NFL. It’s their Super Bowl to lose.”

On paper and on the field are two very different things, and if Rodgers indeed is a Jet next season, there is no telling how he will mesh with the offense, his engagement level at admittedly leaning “90 percent” towards retirement before his darkness retreat, etc.

But just looking at the names on the roster, Craig says Gang Green will be the team to beat.

“I’m gonna die on this hill today,” Craig said. “The New York Jets are the best team in the NFL on paper, talent-wise.”
