What did you like and/or dislike about what the Jets did in free agency and the draft?

"The Jets did actually a great job in free agency and the draft, in my opinion. One by one, John Idzik and company went after each need of the team. Eric Decker was a great choice, and Jace Amaro was an underrated draft pick. The only thing the Jets did that was suspect was to not acquire one of the big name corners."

Which rookie are you most looking forward to seeing this season?

"Jace Amaro, hands down."

What do you feel the Jets weakest link is going into Training Camp?

"Going into camp, whether or not they have the cornerback situation all lined up. With Dimitri Patterson and other younger players, there are a lot of unknowns there."

Can you tell us about a player on the roster who hasn’t reached the spotlight but you feel will be a difference maker in 2014?

"Antonio Allen. He’s a safety going into his third season, and the Jets are looking at him to start. He posted a pick six against Tom Brady last season, and an expanded role is going to serve him quite well."

I know it’s ridiculously early, but I know everyone looks at the schedule in the offseason trying to predict wins and losses. How do you feel about the matchup against the Bears?

"I believe, as early as it is, that the two teams matchup well, but it really is too early to do any kind of analysis."
