Forte had some decent production when healthy last season, but he was further hampered by knee injuries and turned 32 in December.

He’s too expensive for the Jets to retain with limited return on investment.

Wyoming’s Josh Allen or USC’s Sam Darnold could end up being a big slider, or Louisville’s Lamar Jackson could become a big riser. Because of that unpredictability, Maccagnan, Bowles and Bates would need to settle on several would-be rookie solutions knowing their top option might not be an option at all.

The long play of drafting the game’s most important position makes more sense for the Jets to get out of the cycle of overspending on veterans. They have to be confident enough in Cousins for them to make the move, because he also could become another expensive mistake that would handcuff them in their relentless pursuit of the Patriots.

The Broncos issued a statement to the Post saying they are monitoring the situation:

We were recently informed of an investigation into an alleged incident involving Adam Gotsis that occurred in 2013 when he was in college. Our organization was aware of his arrest on March 7, and it is our understanding that no determination has been made at this time as to whether any charges will be filed.

The Broncos take an accusation of this nature very seriously and will continue to closely monitor the legal proceedings. This issue was promptly reported to the NFL as soon as we learned of it, and we will remain in communication with the league office regarding this matter.

A native of Melbourne, Australia, the 25-year-old Gotsis started 13 games last season, compiling 41 tackles and two sacks.

The Broncos selected Gotsis in the second round (No. 63 overall) in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Assignments on bunt plays and shifts are among the tasks that Braun is trying to master.

“I definitely don’t feel comfortable at all,” he said. “I’m doing the best I can with it. Guys have to make sacrifices. I think ultimately if we want to get to where we want to get as a team, based on the roster we’ve put together, it obviously helps make us a better team if I’m able to play multiple positions.”

Braun came up as a third baseman with the Brewers and played Cheap Authentic NFL Jerseys there in 2007 before moving Cheap NFL Jerseys Nike to the outfield in 2008. He has primarily played left field since then, except for a two-year stint in right that ended in 2015.
