    Reche visits Jets

    By Mike Reiss, Globe Staff

    The Jets hosted free-agent receiver Reche Caldwell on a visit at their team headquarters today.

    The visit comes one day after Caldwell was released by the Patriots.

    The Jets have six receivers on the roster: Jerricho Cotchery, Laveranues Coles, Justin McCareins, Brad Smith, Wallace Wright and Chansi Stuckey.

    It is possible that they have genuine interest in Caldwell, who led the Patriots with 61 receptions last season. Or they might be more interested in some information he could pass along about how the Patriots are preparing to attack the Jets.

    I say we bring him in, if anything... He can bring inside information about the Patriots to the JEts locker room. I would love to see those bug eyes in green and white, lol.

    Haha, he would look like a frog! lol

    Seems like we'd just be paying someone for inside info on the Pats as opposed to "adding a valuable player." Anything we can do to win I guess.

  2. I'm not going to be there opening weekend, but I should be at most of the home games this season. I just moved to NJ so I'll be looking for some good tailgates.

    Plus, If anyone here's up to the challenge... I'll bet a 12 pack I can slam a beer faster than anyone on this board ;)

  3. TE Sean Ryan may be on trading block according to Hutch - no link

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    "Veteran TE Sean Ryan might be on the trading block"

    - Dave Hutchinson

    Not surprising given how many TEs the Jets kept but I kinda like Ryan. Jets must believe the combination of Kowalewski and Pociask could give them everything Ryan does.

    Hm. Wouldn't be a bad move with the abundance of TE's we have.

  4. Andre would be the most disappointing. At the time he signed they said he was 290. Sounds like a good 3 -4 end at that weight. Learning a new position at this point is rough. I understand they have to take the players that will give them the most talented roster. But as fans we can root and most of us rooted for Andre. Hoped that that he could defy the odds.

    So he would definitely be the most disappointing.

    Surprising for me would be Marques Tui. If he doesn't make it I think they are making a HUGE mistake. It is nice to try and save those roster spots. But you can't get too cute with the QB. Brad Smith can not play QB on any kind of regular basis in this league.

    I think they will ajust the roster to get the most out of it and that it is more likey that we save roster spots on defense than offense. Keeping players like Posiak, Jackson, Ventrone, Tui, would greatly help this team.

    Robertson/Mosely/Pouha can cover backup DE/NT spots and some of the LB's like Thomas/Bowens can play OLB/DE, some of the DB's can also cover multiple DB positions.

    I think they will also save a spot with Tutt being the back up FB and #3 RB... and placing Danny Ware on the practice squad, bringing him in for specific games only.

  5. Offense: 25

    QB: Pennington, Clemens, Tuiasosopo (3)

    RB: Jones, Washington, Barnes, Tutt (4)

    WR: Coles, Cotchery, McCareins, B Smith, Stuckey, Wright, Jackson (7)

    TE: Baker, Ryan, Posciak (3)

    OL: Brick, Mangold, Moore, Clement, Bender, Clarke, Smith, FA * (8)

    *I think this is one position that they upgrade in free agency... an ROT.

    Defense: 25

    NT: Robertson, Mosley, Pouha (3)

    DE: Ellis, K Coleman, Hicks, Hamilton (4)

    LB: Vilma, Hobson, Barton, Harris, B Thomas, Bowens, Spencer, Kassell (8)

    CB: Dyson, Barrett, Miller, Revis, Poteat (5)

    S: Rhodes, E Coleman, E Smith, Washington, Ventrone (5)

    Special Teams: 3

    K: Nugent

    P: Graham

    LS: Dearth

    Practice Squad 8:

    CB Coleman (if elidgeable) or Collins

    DL Devito

    TE Kowalewski

    OL Turner

    QB Ratliff

    RB Ware

    LB Costanzo (if he is elidgeable) or Trunsik

    OC Villani

    Possible Changes:

    Tui being cut would put B.Smith as the #2 QB, bring Ware up to the #3RB and put someone new onto the Practice Squad.

  6. The postgame locker room had a decidedly pregame intensity.

    The Jets -- or at least the backups wearing Jets uniforms -- had just come back to beat the Eagles in the preseason finale Thursday night. But while the participants rehashed plays from that evening, the regular players who were mere observers already were deep in their preparation for the Sept. 9 regular-season opener.

    Even coach Eric Mangini, Mr. One Day, One Meeting, One Play at a Time, said he's taken more than a cursory peek at some of the Patriots' preseason portfolio in recent days.

    "It's always good to be able to work a little bit ahead," Mangini said, "so I've caught a couple of the games."

    The Jets have seven days to refine their Patriots game plan, but they've been working on it since training camp began July 27 and probably have been formulating and figuring since right after the Jets lost their playoff game in Foxboro in January.

    That focus became more acute after last Saturday's game against the Giants, the last significant game action for most of the regulars.

    The Eagles game was nice to win, and important in evaluating some of the players who could make the roster. But for many, it was just something to watch other than Patriots game video.

    "I've been thinking about next Sunday for the past week or so," tight end Chris Baker said after taking an unnecessary shower Thursday night.:bag: "Obviously, we've been looking at what they're doing, especially in that third preseason game, that's a big game. We'll really, really get into it now."

    The season opener is always a tone-setting game. But this year, with the Jets facing the Patriots, it could reverberate for months. The Jets haven't opened the season against a division opponent since 2002, when they beat the Bills in overtime and went on to win their only AFC East title in the last eight years.

    "Usually we end up playing somebody outside the division on opening day," Baker said. "This is the last team we played last year, and with all the success they've had, it's obviously a big game right off the bat for us."

    Obviously.

    Notes & quotes: Talks between the Jets and G Keydrick Vincent, released by the Ravens earlier in the week, have cooled off, according to a person familiar with the situation. Even so, the Jets are one of three NFL teams with an expressed interest in Vincent ... Mangini said he liked what he saw on the winning drive, in which the Jets went 65 yards in 15 plays in 2:47 to kick a 35-yard field goal as time expired. Still, something was missing. "It felt a lot like practice," Mangini said, "but without the music going." ... The Jets, and all NFL teams, must reduce their rosters to 53 names by 5 p.m. Saturday.

  7. I'm torn. He sucked as a player but was a great guy for our younger ones in the locker room. Now at least wads will survive another cut.

    Perhaps....

    I don't think Was is a very good OLB, but he looks pretty decent when his hands in the dirt when we are in a 4-3. He's patient and doesn't overpurse, and tends to put good pressure on the QB if he comes his way (hand's in his face etc.).

  8. PATS HAVE PUNTER CONVENTION

    A league source tells us that the New England Patriots worked out four punters on Friday, a day after dumping rookie Danny Baugher and signing veteran Chris Hanson.

    Visiting with the Pats on Friday were Paul Ernster, Sean Douglas, Ken Parrish, and Sam Paulescu.

    Meanwhile, there are rumblings on the Intergoogle suggesting that Baugher's abrupt departure was unrelated to performance. These are uncorroborated and unverified, and we've passed the info along to our friends in the "real" media for further investigation.

    With that said, it's odd that the Pats would dump Baugher before signing Hanson, and would then bring in a bunch of guys behind Hanson for look-sees.

    Good... maybe he'll bobble some of the long snaps and we can get some turnovers :box:
