Jets have tried to trade Wayne Hunter

For the Jets, the kiss of death apparently comes in the form of a public statement of support.
That’s not an uncommon phenomenon in sports, but it’s becoming increasingly common in New York.
The latest example? Right tackle Wayne Hunter. Last week, G.M. Mike Tannenbaum said he “expects” Hunter to return to the team as the starter in 2012. Now, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that the Jets have tried to trade Hunter.
Mehta says the Jets have talked to an unnamed NFC team about making a deal, but the discussions stalled. (Although trades can’t happen until March 13, teams can talk about possible transactions before the official opening of the new league year.)
Hunter may still be safe. As Mehta points out, the team doesn’t have much depth along the line. Also, there’s a chance Hunter’s play improves under new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano.
Even if Hunter stays, it’s further proof that the things said by NFL teams never can be taken at face value. Indeed, the Jets wouldn’t be sniffing around Peyton Manning if coach Rex Ryan was telling the truth when he said Mark Sanchezwill be the starting quarterback for as long as Ryan is the head coach.

If Tannenbaum can get something for Wayne Hunter I will be impressed.

Truth is he could have value as insurance to teams with a ton of cap room and maybe a starter coming back from injury or other health questions. He's relatively cheap, doesn't have any huge bonuses due on his deal, and has starting experience (such as it is). I'd be comfortable with a Ducasse-Turner-rookie battle as a worst-case scenario, also keeping in mind there are presently not-super-expensive FA options out there and more might become available to so-so players who won't take a pay cut from their far-better-than-so-so contracts.

NY Jets seek to trade offensive lineman Wayne Hunter in attempt to add protection for Mark Sanchez

Gang Green wants better protection for Sanchez

Wayne Hunter might think things are looking in land of Gang Green but for him, rumor mill says different.





Posted Image



The Jets' uncharacteristically inconsistent offensive line play last season has prompted them to look for an upgrade.
The Daily News has learned that Gang Green has explored trading right tackle Wayne Hunter this offseason. The Jets were engaged in trade discussions involving Hunter with at least one NFC team, but a deal couldn’t be struck, according to sources.
Although the Jets still appear amenable to trading Hunter, the lack of depth along the offensive line may ultimately prevent them from dealing him. There is also a belief in the organization that Hunter, who will be entering his ninth season, could improve under offensive coordinator Tony Sparano’s new blocking schemes.
“We expect Wayne back,” general manager Mike Tannenbaum told WFAN radio last week. “We expect him to be our starter.”
Hunter, a career backup, struggled in his first season as a full-time starter after taking over for the retired Damien Woody. According to Pro Football Focus, Hunter allowed the third-most sacks (11) and committed the fourth-most penalties (11) by a tackle last season. He also allowed the most quarterback hits (11) among tackles.
However, Hunter wasn’t the lone culprit in pass protection. The offensive line wasn’t nearly as stout as it had been the previous two seasons when it established itself as one of the best units in the league. Mark Sanchez was the fifth-most sacked quarterback in the league last season (39).
“We need more consistent line play,” Tannenbaum said. “There’s no question about that. All of our players need to play more consistently up front. We expect (Hunter) to play better this year.”
Hunter, 30, signed a four-year, $12.9 million contract last offseason. His $2.45 million base salary for 2012 became guaranteed last month

agreed penis, if the tannenbaum gets a 50% off coupon for hunter it will be a huge win and maybe his biggest coup to date. We could spend 2.5M on one of the FA out there. I would take McKenzie over this jagoff hunter. Our tackle doesnt need to be all pro, he just cant be a big gaping hole the size of madonas vajajay...

Wayne Hunter, Bilal Powell, or McNight and our 5th round pick for Felix Jones. Callahan is the Cowboys O-Coordinator/O-line coach, this trade is probably fantasy, but I could see Hunter to the Cowboys for a similar paid player on the Cowboys, or a late round pick maybe a 5th. Or maybe Schotty wants him in St. Louis, I doubt it thou.

So McNight and a 5th for Jones? The other two should probably not even be on an NFL roster.

Trade Hunter (saves 2.5 million) release Moore (saves 3 million) sign Nicks from NO, and have a RT competition with Turner, Ducasse, and rookie like someone else posted. Mangold, DBrick, Nicks, a healthy Slauson (who moves to RG, which makes us better with Nicks being the better pulling guard) would be a great foursome on the line, that's where we should spend our FA money if we plan on being G&P offense.

Yea I said this is probably fantasy thinking, but you never know one teams garbage could be thought of as another teams gold, it all depends on what Callahan thinks of Hunter.

Would you trade Moore, and Hunter for Nicks? If so this is a no brainer, only reason for releasing Moore is to create the cap space for Nicks, it would probably gave to go down that way. Trust me if we can afford Nicks without releasing Moore I'm all for it. Slauson, Turner, Ducasse, and a rookie as depth with one starting at RT would be awesome.

Carey is a tackle turned guard, he stunk at tackle showed improvement at guard, so he would be best at G, but IMO wouldn't be an upgrade to what we have like Nicks, he is also coming off a season ending injury.

So were gonna have Chad Henne under center, handing off to Ronnie Brown, with Carey blocking, and Sparano calling the plays, I think I've seen this movie before it ends with 5 wins. If all these rumors, and what some people actually want come to fruition how is turning into the Miami Dolphins on offense gonna win us a SB, when they haven't won more then 6 games in the last 3 years?

Carey started 87 straight games for the Fish at RT, RG, and a full season at LT. The year he played LT he only gave up 6 sacks. He was given a big contract, but had the misfortune of being the LT when Jake Long was on the board.

Was moved to RT, and played very well. Blew his knee up late in the season in 2010. His health was uncertain, so the Fish brought in a RT who sucked.

He was moved to RG, sprained his ankle in the Dallas game late in the season, but still was an alternate to the Pro Bowl. I believe he is only 30.

Looks a hell of a lot like Woody at this point of his career. Will probably be relatively cheap.

Moore played really well last year. Believe he gave up 0 sacks. It would be foolish to release him

Stalled? What are we asking for? If it's anything more then a conditional draft pick that baring him going to a pro bowl or turning water into wine becomes a 7th rounder we need to lower our asking price

Quick question, if we TRADE Hunter, does that mean the team we trade him to gets to pick up his 2.5 million?

If that's the case, I would bring in a vet for the RT spot and draft one maybe in the 2nd or 3rd round to grow for a couple of years.
