    Hey Randy,
    So what does this mean for Braylon Edwards?
    We arent going to just let him walk.
    And is Tony Richardson therefore retiring?

    OMG! You can’t release Jason Taylor! We need him!

    Will the Jets keep LaDainian Tomlinson and Braylon Edwards as well?

    Randy, Thanks for the update on these players. Always can count on Randy and his staff to keep us Jets fans informed of the teams news and their tremendous articles and stats they provide all year long.
    Congrats to Leon who just agreed in principal to a new 4 year deal. It couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
    From what i understand Edwards was not offered a tender offer because he has 6 years in the league and no matter what happens with the new CBA he would still be an UFA. So lets hope they can figure out a way to keep him.

    The JETS made some SMART moves by RELEASING (Damien Woody, David Harris, Jason Taylor, Kris Jenkins). They **(WERE)** all very good players, but AGE and INJURES have hurt them too much.

    IMPORTANT for 2011 SEASON:
    ————————————–
    1. The JETS must look for a (350 PD – KRIS JENKINS) replacement for NOSE TACKLE, either through Free Agency or the DRAFT. The JETS need a NOSE TACKLE like KRIS JENKINS that WEIGHS at least **(350 PDS)** to occupy at least 2 OFFENSIVE Linemen.

    2. The JETS also need t o REPLACE (DAMIEN WOODY’s) position. Maybe with (ROB TURNER)?

    Peter, just to make sure everyone understands, David Harris was tendered as the Jets’ franchise player and signed that tender on Tuesday.

    All of the tenders announced confirm what I’ve thought all yr.: Holmes, Edwards, and Cromartie are the key guys, Smith would be nice to keep but less important as Sanchez takes more control of the O (note his unusually direct statement about doing so about a day after the PIT loss) and other KRs can be groomed, old guys on D who are overpaid and under-performing are on the way out, and okay guys like Folk, E Smith, and Digs are take or leave. In other words, much the way Mr. T and Rex played it last yr, do anything you must to improve the team. While I wish Rex would stop making predictions, I can’t say I argue with this aspect of his game.

    BSmith is a good player, theres no doubt, but we have a qb,and backups, we have more than enough WRs, and hopefully our kick returner situation will be dealt with, so if he can add to our picks and or be a key element in trading up I say trade him. As for cromartie, I for one wasn’t impressed, his penalties although some were questionable most were inexcusable, and blown coverages,
    leaves me feeling, he goes before BE or SH. As for the “D”, last draft I prayed they’d go NT, this draft please! the whole d line needs work, and let Ellis retire in green and white. how do raiders find such good punters?

    Great win for the players getting the Judge to rule about the 4 bill the owners were supposed to get from the TV contracts regardless if there were games or not. Now lets see how the owners react about a lockout when they don’t have that 4 bill in their back pockets. Wouldn’t be shocked if they agree to an extension or lets hope they do.

    Really surprised that they tendered Cromartie for a 1st and 3rd….Cromartie is an average corner with no tackling ability….suppose the jets want to look good because they lost a 2nd round pick for him…and not admit their mistake (just yet)….

    OK,everybody has a nice tender on them except Edwards,I’m praying they have a deal in place for him. I’ve been reading articles where everyone is calling Gholston the BIGGEST bust of all time, I think he is the TEAM SAVIOR. If Mangini lost his job sooner because he forced them to draft this guy then that lead us to Rex Ryan who would of got a job somewhere else if we didn’t come calling and we would never had got him!

  20. By uncle joe on Mar 2, 2011 | Reply

    Safety Quinton Carter or TE Kyle Rudolph will be our pick at 30,depending on Free Agency. We will probably get pick of the litter at either position at 30 because every team will be reaching for these front seven defenders.

    Hey Randy, Is this gonna get done or what!?!!!! I am a huge pro football fan! There gonna kill the game ! Lombardi must be rollin in his grave right now!!! Hey what happened to Braylon Edwards? No offer for him?Nick Folk why make him an offer? Go Jets!

    Give Golston another year. Watched his college highlights the other day and saw the guy having fun and showing personality, which helped him to play well. I think the NFL has been a challenge for him mentally which has affected his game to the point that he plays without confidence. Give him a starting role in 2011, im sure it will payoff… (Jerome Harrison was cut 3 times in the begining of his career) now look at what hes become. Golston is only 24 and i really feel if given the opportunity he will shine… BT and CP are great but VG is now ready to be the guy we thought we drafted…

    The problem with signing both Holmes and Edwards is now Keller becomes a forgotten man. If you recall, prior to Holmes coming back from his suspension, Keller was having a great year. Once Holmes and Edwards were put in the lineup, things went south. If Keller played on Indy or N.E., he would probably be All-Pro – if they they do resign Holmes and Edwards, the Jets will need to find a way to get Keller the ball otherwise you may want to consider trading him as it is a waste of his talent. As much as I like Jenkins, it was the right thing to do – hopefully he will agree to a lesser contract and come back. They still have to find a way to get someone in the front 3 who is a legitimate pass rusher – none of their ends commands a double team.

    The tenders would all be good moves if the current CBA rules will stay in effect. They were just covering their bases just in case. If not then none of them stand and its fair game and every man for themselves whenever they get the season going.
    This really STINKS and SHAME on the teams that want money up front for tickets when we as fans have no idea of when the season will start and even if they release a schedule in mid April if the earlier dates will even take place or even tacked on at the end. The 1% intreest fans can get is better in our pockets than the greedy owners pockets.

    Once the smoke clears …i think that rextanwoody will have some big moves for the defensive front 7. Edwards and Holmes will be back … you can bank on it … just ask Blinka he knows even though no one heeds his posts.

    Scjoe, I am not going to tell you I watched a bunch of UCLA games because I have not but I do pick up serveral drafty mags & read them & the one I have says that Moore does not like to hit. I think we already went thru this with Kerry Rhodes I do not want to spend a 1st round pick on a guy that does not tackle & a saftey at that a spot that is supposed to tackle good. Plus Cromartie already does not hit between Cromartie, Leonard & Moore. We would have the worst tackling secondary in the NFL. With a front 7 with 5 of 7 guys 30 or older. NO THANKS

  27. By GaryC on Mar 2, 2011 | Reply

    to scjoe,rahim moore might not be a great hitter but if the jets drafted him he would be the best ballhawk they have bar none. cannot complain about any of the cuts,it is time to turnover the team some.the kid from temple wilkinson looked pretty good at combine and we knowklecko went there.also for the people wanting Phil Taylor of Baylor the guy does have weight issues and if you can’t play for paterno that sends a red flag.

    my apologies to scjoe, my last post should have been to tom spicer about moore.rhodes couldn’t tackle and he was horrible with ball in the air,just remember there have been many ucla safeties that have made it in nfl.history repeats,Easley, Rogers, Eric Turner just to name a few.

  29. By Tom Spicer on Mar 2, 2011 | Reply

    They placed 1st & 3rd round picks on Holmes & Cromartie that means they will both be back for sure. We are not getting 1st & 3rd round picks for them. I also agree with SCJOE I would love to get a 2nd & 3rd round pick for Smith & Smith both can easily be replaced.

    Bob, Yes Keller was the go to guy early in the year before SH came back. But he still finished with 100 targets tied with Edwards for the team lead. So playing with BE and SH doesn not hurt him at all. Maybe you have to give teams credit for taking him away and making Sanchez throw outside the #’s.
    Tom and SCJOE,
    Heard they are talking with Bob Sanders today. Wouldn’t be a bad move if the price were right but i don’t see how you can count on him staying healthy. He has played only 3 games in the past two years.

    Nick Folk i mean really Nick Folk . This guy will cost us for if he is on the team. I hope he is practicing right now ! Because if he costs us a game I will come down there …..

  32. By Tom Spicer on Mar 2, 2011 | Reply

    I said this like 2 weeks ago & it seems I may be right I just read the Jets are bringing in Bob Sanders today for a look. If they can sign him to a incentive laden deal where if he stays healthy he gets paid & if he is hurt it wont cost lots I am all for it. This guy was the D MVP of the NFL in 2008 that would solve our saftey problem & the draft we could just focus on the front 7 like I want to.

    Why would any1 be surprised about Jets tendering A-C said last week the way Rex loves DB’s he will make some kind of move to keep him, even at the risk of losing a more productive player… Sanders OMG like Big Jenks he was was was was was was A very good CB in days be4 he became so injury prone and now I’m afraid we’re going to make the same mistake, instead of grabbing young players though FA Trade or draft we’ll have another player sitting on the bench 90% of the time I believe he has been hurt more then Jenks last 3 seasons…Go bigger go stronger go faster and younger NOT OLDER SLOWER AND BROKEN

  34. By Mike Jet Vet on Mar 2, 2011 | Reply

    Ira good observation about B-E your right and one reason they didn’t tender him, I hope we’ll find a way to get him back I believe hes a better asset then S-H J-Co gives us the option of losing one or the other not that I want that…D-LINE D-LINE D-LINE JOB ONE

    I think it was a good move releasing those guys. Woody’s release is going to hurt but we did fine without him in the playoffs against elite teams. Iwish we could have seen what we could have done with jenkins in but there is still a chance that we can resign him for cheaper and he could redeem himself.

    “The Jets reportedly plan to offer recently released NT Kris Jenkins a one-year deal to return to the team at a reduced salary.
    Per New York Metro, Jenkins was originally due a grand total of $6.4 million for 2011. If he finds little interest on the free agent market while recovering from a twice-torn ACL, he can return to the Jets for an incentive-laden deal” Now I would be okay with this he was due like 6.4 mil this year. If the above happens than what he makes will depend on how much he plays.

    Chicago Bob, the problem isn’t spreading the ball around to both WRs and TEs, as the passing success of NE, IND, SD, and even OAK at times proves. The problem is you need a QB who can throw the ball accurately to them and a HC and OC who are in synch about the need to let him do it, none of which I’m certain we have now. Reports today are that we want Jenks back for less money, which makes sense since he has to be considered a long shot to ever play again. Ira, your ongoing sentimentality over Leon baffles me. He wasn’t anything close to a nice guy after he got hurt and he certainly wasn’t a smart guy. Let him return kicks for SEA while we work McKnight and Conner into the lineup. Pranit, Cro was All-Pro this yr., hence the tender.

    Don’t worry people …B.E. is a lock …He is definately coming back …They would no sooner give up Braylon , than they would give up Sanchez … And David Harris bled for us , glad to see him returning …And I read L.T. is returning …

  39. By scjoe on Mar 2, 2011 | Reply

    T Spicer, I have done a lot of research on Moore, I wouldn’t worry to much about his hitting ability, Rex will correct that, but as far as ball skills go, for a safety, he is hands down #1 in this draft, and it wouldn’t surprise me if he were off the boards at #30 anyway. So lets see where it goes. Ira, I did read about Sanders coming in, not a great move in my mind, not unless it is an incentive filled contract, because this guy just can not stay on the field. I have a feeling, after all is said and done, KJ will be back on the roster, and if fully recovered, the starting NT on opening day. (if there is one)

    I like the interest in Sanders. take him on incentives and then draft a safety. use Sanders experience to teach the new guys. and if he is heallthy he can contribute. If Jenks returns on incentives and we get some fresh blood on the D Line hopefully a big boy replacement for KJ, it would be nice to see the 2 big beasts line up next to each other and cause havoc. Wiechel will be sooo happy.

    we need a space eaterupper NT in this draft… bottom line.. the 3-4 is built off the nt he needs to take up the center & a guard to keep them off the two middle LBs so they can shoot the gaps and smash the oppositions running backs.. i love big jenks but same injury 2 years in a row.. i dont see him comming back from it.. pouha is tough but undersized and better suited as a end or a rotational player.. he is as old as KJ too 25 year old seinior when drafted.. wilkerson from temple would be a good replacement for ellis 6’4 300 lbs high motor but that still doesnt address NT.. but they say its a deep draft at D line although we have few picks Mr.T is about as good a gm at finding talent as any gm in recent memory.. gohlston was manginis pick

    Edwards outperformed Holmes hands down and had the stats to prove it. I hate that E. Smith was targeted by the refs, but his hitting is definitely the best of the safeties on the team. I still think a 2 or 3 year deal with Atogwe is the Jets best option. This is not a final thing with Taylor and Jenks. There’s not a chance we’re wasting a first on a TE. Just plain dumb. Tomlinson is still signed. I am happy to see KC, and especially Coleman with offers. DL is the still the main concern. You can’t keep messing with the OL either. There is still no pulling guard. It’s time for some serious Rex players, hitters who have a knack for playing football. I’m not looking for big name guys with great 40 times, I want football players. Go Jets
