Flynn would be in the draft and there will also be other young QBs available as his back up QB so he would have his choice of other guys, ie, Luck, Griffin, or even Flynn. Keeping a very solid defense opens up opportunities to be more creative in the draft, to accumulate better players. The Jets defense fills a hole that needs filled and allows him to draft a good player with upside instead of spending a draft pick on a defense. Pending on his scoring, having a good solid defense DOES matter. It is likely that the best defenses will be kept on other teams, and there is a drop off after the top 6 or 7 defenses to the next tier. Keeping a solid Def like the Jets is just one less thing you would have to worry about come draft time and he can concentrate on drafting players at skill positions. IMHO.
