So a young injury-proned turnstile is going to replace our washed up never-was turnstile. Got it.

That was my first thought, two teams trading away their problems.

This move makes no sense. Jason Smith is worse than Wayne Hunter. Atleast Hunter could have played a blocking TE. And they could have waited a short while to pick Jason Smith up.

At first I was thinking along these lines but then I said **** it, it's the Jets.

Funny the guy that ended up packing bags was Hunter and not Holmes after all that jazz. Yeah yeah I get Holmes is uncuttable/tradable.

Anyway maybe sometimes it can be change of scenery.

It was tough to think the OL depth could take a step back but it just did!

Excerpt:

Right tackle is a different story. Smith is back from his third concussion in as many years, but is being pushed by free-agent acquisition Barry Richardson. Smith was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2009 draft, but has been disappointing through three years. He’s a stout run blocker, but hasn’t done well in pass protection.

I see what you did there

Both picked n the top 5.

It's actually worse!

Jets now have THREE Top 11 1st round busts from the 2009 draft.

Would be funny if Maybin turns out to be the best of them.

I'm failing to see the benefit of this move. I get the Jets not wanting to pay Hunter his guaranteed $2.5M, but I don't get exchanging him for a different bust guaranteed $4M. Smith's concussion history is concerning, too.
