Well TJ's gone.. http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/footb ... ones_.html

They're really banking a lot on Greene and Leon's return.. Although their OL could support a number of NFL backs..

Also signed kicker Nick Folk- http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4938775

But supposedly could still re-sign Feely.

They're looking for a vet corner and preppin for the draft (hopefully we net a pass rusher)..

Also, they may be contemplating offering Leon a 2nd round tender (which would be dangerous w/TJ gone) as well as Brad Smith.

But thats not what these guys are paid to do, nor what we are looking for them to do, right?

"I can tell you, it's not going to be a popular move in the locker room," said one player, speaking on the condition of anonymity. "We loved T.J. The man loved the game and put it all on the line only to get dumped after his best season. I think you should reward players for performance. You dump him but give Vernon (Gholston) another shot? Doesn't make sense."

TJ was a great player for the Jets. Nobody in the league outworks him. He plays every game.

27 TDs the past 2 seasons is nothing to sneeze at.

Best stat of all - 1 fumble lost in 3 seasons with the team (including playoffs).

That being said, he's going to be 32 next year and the team does have 2 very capable backs. You'd like to think they're cutting him at the perfect time - he did look shot in the playoffs. But with just one year left on his contract and the year being uncapped, you'd think they'd pay him the $3M roster bonus and his $3M base salary for 2010. A bit surprising in that regard...

Thank you, Thomas. You were a professional in every sense of the word. Your contribution to the franchise will not be forgotten.

I know this is just a business, but its also not just a business. Sometimes it is alright to go with your heart.

Be careful w/that...

Many said the same about Lamont Jordan..

But I do like Greene...

Besides the 2 headed tailback is the way to go in the NFL today..

But who's the other head???

Would love nothing more than a healthy return from Leon, but can we be passive this summer hanging our hopes on him returning 100%??

I'm not worried, but somewhat concerned...

I originally thought it had something to do with these crazy final-4 restrictions and them trying to bring in a FA any way possible. But apparently you'd have to lose a free agent of your own...So I agree..

Our best hopes are with roster cuts and the draft of course..

Rumor; Cardinals Interested in Trading Anquan Boldin or Third-Round Pick for Kerry Rhodes


Adam Schein of SNY reported on Loud Mouths Wednesday that the Arizona Cardinals are interested in trading for Jets safety Kerry Rhodes. Schein says the Cardinals would trade either receiver Anquan Boldin or a third-round draft pick to the Jets in exchange for Rhodes.

For the Jets, this is a no-brainer. Rhodes was a cast-off in 2009 and was benched for a number of games. His replacement, Eric Smith, did a nice job as the starter. Acquiring Anquan Boldin for Rhodes would be a great trade for the Jets. Even receiving a third-round pick is good enough in exchange for Rhodes.

Can we sign Pierre Thomas from the Saints? He's a restricted, right?

FoxSports.com's Jay Glazer reports the Chargers have agreed to trade CB Antonio Cromartie to the Jets. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bolts will receive a conditional 2011 third-round pick.

Per Schefter, the pick can be upgraded to a second-rounder depending on Cromartie's playing time and the Jets' performance. No one is disputing Cromartie's freakish natural talent, but Chargers GM A.J. Smith did well to pick up a valuable pick. Between Cromartie's myriad off-field issues and nonchalant on-field attitude, the Jets are taking quite a gamble. Of course, if Cromartie ever gets his head on straight, Rex Ryan's secondary will rise to a new level of dominance.

Mr. T strikes again!!

This one made too much sense not to happen. Like that we kept our 2010 picks with how deep this draft is.
