    Yup, just posted this in the Pats thread, there is our deep threat. He agreed to a 3 year deal.

    I really like what BB has done today.

    Texans sign Joseph. Apparently taking them out of the Aso sweepstakes.

    Cmon!

    Not sure why you want him so badly. Adding him makes the Jets overall defense worse.

    NO has a sick combination of backs.

    We could discuss how adding him doesn't make them exponentially better (related to cost, etc. because they already have Revis) but how would getting him make their defense worse?

    How? It's him, or Carr or Cro. That's the only other addition we're making to our D, so if we have our choice, how does it make us worse?

    We might lose Edwards, I'm not a massive fan anyways of him, so that's the only downside and obviously not to our D...

    Eats up your cap space while your defense cannot currently rush the passer, cover tight ends or stop the run all that well. This team should be targeting guys like Cullen Jenkins, Steven Bowen and Manny Lawson. Losing Brad Smith sends your avg. starting field position way back as well. Its just not a good overall game plan IMO.

    The Jets are counting on K. Ellis and Wilkerson to come in and add good depth and youth to the defensive line. Combine that with what we have, the coming out of DeVito, I think the team is fine with our DL. The rushing the passer problem is going to continue because we can't get our hands on a Rush-Backer. There's nothing turning that around this offseason.

    We've moved money around already, and still could do more with Sanchez and if we land get Aso, it'll end up working out money wise for the team because many of them are willing to move money around + Mike T is a whiz with the cap.

    Losing Brad Smith hurts but you have to remember, we've had how many pro-bowl return-men lately? We have the best ST Coordinator in the business and I think McKnight or Kirley will be able to step in and do a comparable job to Brad Smith.

    I don't think I can comment on the money/cap space until after (if) Aso signs. Because from the outside looking in, the Holmes deal looked a bit high but when you see the cap hit for this season, it's a different story (for this year).

    There is no way that they were signing Smith back at that number no matter what else they did. I agree that their pass rush needs help but I don't see any of those guys being serious difference makers in that regard. Having the 2 best cover corners in the league will allow them to do many different things. Their rush D should be better if for no other reason than because they can load up more.

    I can agree that it depends on the deal. If its 4 or 5 years then you're screwed because he will never live up to that contract. You would want the ability to bail after two years.

    I've been hoping for a 3-4 year deal myself, and I agree. Mike T is so damn good and creative, we'll see if he signs how it turns out.

    I live in Central Jersey (Jets/Giants town) and it's all I here up here. I've never been a Jets fan and living in this area has made me hate them even more. I like Rex as a coach and obviously Revis is a stud, but other than that, nothing about them appeals to me.

    Oh, it's a new found hate. OK, completely understandable Can't blame anyone for hating the Jets since Rex got there.

    This is what I found:

    Latest: League source says that Jets are no longer in running for Asomugha; agent says that Cowboys are not in sweepstakes either

    Scheffter is speculating Eagles. Would be a perfect match actually.


    EDIT: Now confirmed...Eagles

    5/$60M is what he got.
