Are the Jets really tanking?

The New York Jets don’t plan to be a contender in 2017. The moves the franchise has made during the offseason have made it abundantly clear the team doesn’t consider itself a winner right now.

It’s also a realistic approach by the Jets following a 5-11 season where they had the No. 30 scoring offense and the No. 28 defense. The team could have dug in its heels and gone after high-priced free agents, but that probably wouldn’t have helped much. So the Jets did the opposite.

New York started the offseason by cutting ties with veterans Nick Mangold, Darrelle Revis, and Brandon Marshall three months ago, then got rid of David Harris and Eric Decker in June.

There’s no doubt that the team is worse now than it was when the 2016 season ended, but are the Jets tanking?

Why the Jets are tanking

The Jets’ current situation under center is a disaster. The depth chart is led by soon-to-be-38-year-old journeyman Josh McCown on a one-year deal with unimpressive draft picks Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty battling to be his backup. It’s a mess.

With a terrible season in 2017, the Jets could fix that.
