John Idzik is back in the NFL.
Almost everyone -- including yours truly -- roasted him for one of the most bizarre public mea culpas we've ever seen.
But the truth is, Idzik is a great hire for Jacksonville. He'll be assisting on the salary-cap side of the operation where he's most comfortable. If nothing else, he left the Jets with a trove of money to spend in the future and brought them out of a salary-cap logjam. He also never got a chance to fix the rookie mistakes he was making.
Idzik now will be the first to admit that he was cold and distant with the media. He'll also admit that his draft prep and scouting needed better support from those who spend their time doing so.
Now, though, he gets a chance to climb his way back. Something everyone deserves at least once.
