Though guaranteeing you’ll win more than five games isn’t saying a whole lot, it’s important to have that kind of optimism entering a season. The Jets were a 10-win team two seasons ago, so they probably feel they have enough talent around to win.
However, Brandon Marshall is gone, Ryan Fitzpatrick is gone, Darrelle Revis is gone, and the team is trying to trade a few more veteran defensive players. They also don’t have much of a quarterback. Don’t be surprised if the team can’t even make good on Wilkerson’s promise.
