Anyone want to put money down on Mehta being "told" this by Winslow's tweet?

I agree, in fact I would be surprised if he wasn't pushing for this for a long time.

 

 

That is why I think they held off in signing Braylon because they were afraid it would be a signal that Sanchez was ahead in the QB competition.

 

Maybe it is.  Or maybe now Santonio is on the PUP list and they already passed on Laurent Robinson and Austin Collie, Braylon would be considered the next logical choice on the list, not necessarily favoring Sanchez.  If they had signed Braylon right away without trying out others first, that would more clearly signal a shift toward Mark.

Sanchez likely is ahead of Geno, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything:

Yeah, the way the Jets handled this would seem to suggest that they were first hoping for Holmes to be healthy and when that wasn't case, were trying to see if they could find a better option than Braylon.  It appeared that he was their backup plan if all else failed, which it seems that it did.  I'm sure Idzik's history with Braylon, combined with the fact that the guy Braylon has the successful history with here isn't the one who they want as their long term QB, both played into the Jets not regarding him as highly as many Jets fans.

The fact that Braylon met Geno and liked him is good.  I think that what they were afraid of is that signing Braylon while the QB competition was still on might be interpreted as a subtle signal that they expect Sanchez to start the season-it would give momentum to Sanchez' cause.  But signing him shortly after Holmes went on the PUP list and they tried out other veteran WR's might counteract that perception.

Not on the team that long but absolutely shined as a Jet.  Hope he passes the physical. Glad to have him back.

This is good news.  I hope he and Winslow can stay healthy.  That's 2 big targets who can go up and the ball for Geno. ;-)

 

BE, Hill, Kerley, Winslow with the hope that Holmes can come back.  Thats aint so terrible anymore.  

 

Whats up with Steve Breaston?  Surprised they havent looked at him.  He'd be a nice depth option.

 

Also, how is that MoJo Drew is practicing already after his Lisfranic injury but Holmes is still a ways out.  Are their varying degrees of the injury?

From NJ>COM

 

It appears the Jets and Braylon Edwards are headed toward a third stint together.

The former Pro Bowl wideout, who played for the Jets in 2009-10 as well as the stretch run in 2012, is currently taking a physical at the team's Florham Park training facility, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person requested anonymity because the Jets have yet to make the move official.

Edwards, who was free agent, flew in to New Jersey today.

The fan favorite was a pivotal target during the Jets' back-to-back AFC Championship Game runs, amassing 88 catches for 1,445 yards and 11 touchdowns. During his three-game stint with the Jets last year, he totaled 10 catches for 125 yards.

In Edwards, the Jets are getting a powerful run blocker and a receiver that still has the ability to stretch the field. His rapport with Mark Sanchez seemed to carry over despite the year they spent apart.

Edwards joins a receiving corps racked with uncertainty. There is still no timetable for Santonio Holmes' return from a foot injury and Stephen Hill, the team's 2012 second-round pick, is recovering from offseason knee surgery

3 different types. Severity willl be dependent on displacement and what surface area is available for re-attachment.

Mark pushed for this

The fact that Mark pushed for anything and got it is discouraging, Frank. He should be in the "shut up asswipe - the only reason you're here is we have ABSOLUTELY no other option - if you ever quit turning the ball over every other time you touch it - maybe you can open you mouth"   mode.
