Give John Idzik some credit.
The New York Jets general manager has received his fair share of criticism this offseason for the pace at which he's operated during free agency. No one doubted Idzik was hard at work -- the question was whether the second-year GM's style was properly suited for the NFL's aggressive import business.
There was no time to question Idzik's pace here. The Jets wisely waited for Johnson to become a free agent then held off on a meeting until the market was established. The deal was done one day after Johnson visited the team's facility.
Johnson joins fellow newcomers Eric Decker and Michael Vick, giving the Jets some desperately needed fire power without putting the club in any salary cap peril. You can fairly criticize Idzik for his failure to land a cornerback this spring, but he deserves praise for improving what was the team's most glaring weakness.
At his own pace, of course.
