The trade, which cannot become official until free agency opens Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, will also rely on Marshall passing a physical.

Ughhh Brandon Marshall is good. This sucks. -ilk

Start making up your shortlists for our next GM and coach, because this group is clueless.

Boy, I'm so glad the Jets finally wised up and got Rex out of town. Now the Jets are no longer a circus!   Oops, spoke too soon.

Wayyy Better move then Keeping Percy at that ridiculous Price or drafting Cooper in the top 6. Drafting WR high is just not a good investment unless its AJ or Julio type guys for which Cooper is not. 

 

Harvin is a jack of all trades who rarely produced ( One thousand yard season). Marshall has been a legit top 5 WR for awhile and plays nice for a few seasons before he goes nuts which is all we need from him.

Screw it keep Harvin sign Spiller, and Iupati and go for it on Offense for 1 year.

Depending on what we gave up, I don't think this eliminates the possibility of Maccagnan drafting a WR at #6 (though it certainly makes it more likely he won't).

 

If we gave up a 4th-5th, we still draft who we want at any position, WR included. If it's a 2nd (really hope not) then yes, I'd tend to agree with you he almost definitely won't.

What's wrong here....

 

You guys want perfection.  Perfection isn't available.  When you can bring in a legit #1 receiver talent, at a fair price, for a late round draft pick...It's a good move.

I don't disagree with you. Sometimes a little circus is a good thing.

Do not like, but only $4 mil guaranteed (I believe) remaining on a fat contract, but the dude is a serial DV case and shows next to zero remorse for it despite wearing cool sneakers for Mental Health Day.

I thought it was $0 guaranteed now, but his 2015 salary ($7.5M) is guaranteed in like a week. Hardly matters, since no team makes a trade like this and then threatens to cut him if he won't take a pay cut.

I like the move-when healthy he can be a top 15 wr -I do worry he is a bit of a headcase but worth the risk-my pipe dream is now sign cobb and cut harvin and role with decker marshall and cobb-draft qb at 6 and boommmmmmmmmmmm

not thrilled unless 4th or lower and I dont think Jets make this move unless HC/GM really think there is a 10 Win team in 2015. Marshall not a long term solution at all.

Seems like Marshall has turned the corner these past few years. His skill talent at WR is something the Jets haven't had in forever. Let's just hope Bowles keeps everyone's head on straight.

not sure how anybody can hate on this move-yeah some slight risk but he is a legit wr-props to our new gm in one day he made more of an impact that izadick did his entire tenure

marshall>harvin

so more a trade where Bears save cash.. 6th rounder with all our cap room is a good deal to take pressure off other WRs as Marshall has to be respected. Look at Bears Jeffrey's #s w/Bears in games w/marshall in lineup and in games w/Marshall out..

I just saw the ~$4 mil figure come through on Twitterfwiw, so I'm not sure.

Compensation (as per RapSheet) is a 5th
