Report: Jets meet with QB Blake Bortles

By Rich Cimini | February 25, 2014 12:45:31 AM PST

This is interesting:

The New York Jets met with former Central Florida quarterback Blake Bortles at the scouting combine, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The Jets were one of eight teams to conduct formal interviews with Bortles in Indianapolis. The others, according to the newspaper: Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans.

It's easy to see why the other teams met with Bortles: They own picks in the top 11 and have varying degrees of need at the quarterback position. The Jets, too, could be in the quarterback market, but there's virtually no chance he will be available with the 18th pick. They'd have to make a blockbuster deal to trade up for Bortles, who could go No. 1 overall to the Texans.

Chances are, the Jets were simply performing due diligence. But it's still ... well, interesting.

Tells you all you need to know about how the Jets feel about Geno Smith. Guess there is someone in the organization with a brain.

Really doesn't tell you anything. They could be interested in Bortles, or another first round QB, or they could be interested in creating a smokescreen. Maybe encourage QB wanting teams to trade ahead of them.

This is Cimini trolling. The new format at the combine is for teams to have informal and formal meetings with the majority of the prospects, especially all the top prospects.  The Jets met with Luck and RG III as well, where was that blockbuster trade?

Your dumb friend Slates would do much better if you had a coherent thought to refute.

One of the QBs is going to slip past #10 (Tennessee), and then freefall past Baltimore/Steelers/St Louis and the other teams that have QBs. It's very likely the Jets will be staring at a Carr, Bortles, or Bridgewater at 18. Big call to make.

Like is kind of a silly word, don't you think?

 

I'm in wait and see mode with Geno. I don't think you can make a judgement either way. 3 turnovers in the final 5 games gives me a sliver of hope.

He only had 3 turnovers because he averaged around 12 passes per game for the last 5 games. Sorry, I do not like him. Time will tell on him.

I could see them Possibly, possibly that is passing on Carr, but you just cant pass on Bridgewater, or Bortles.

I'll be all around in the dark. I'll be ever'-where - wherever you can look. Wherever there's a fight so hungry people can eat, I'll be there. Wherever there's a cop beatin' up a guy, I'll be there. I'll be in the way guys yell when they're mad - I'll be in the way kids laugh when they're hungry an' they know supper's ready. An' when the people are eatin' the stuff they raise, and livin' in the houses they build,  wherever there are ill informed, or just plain brainless posters, I'll be there too.

12 is not 26.
