The major takeaway from head coach Todd Bowles?
Ryan Mallett is available and played for the Texans while Mike Maccagnan was a personnel executive there. Matt Flynn, also a free agent, spent some time on the Jets' roster this summer as well. NFL Media's Albert Breer, however, threw water on the Mallett idea Sunday night, reporting that Mallett would not be an option if the Jets made a move.
The Jets are in an interesting position here. They are a young, defense-first team winning without incredible quarterback play. The right move, should Fitzpatrick and Smith not be able to go, could keep them in the playoff hunt.
The wrong move, which might also include sticking with Smith, could sink a promising campaign faster than expected.
