He has upside and he was a huge sleeper TE for me the last few years in fantasy football, but injured way too often, has some locker room concerns, and is just entirely too inconsistent. All the talent in the world, but I'm not betting on him.

The idea that the Jets should pass on a FA because of how deep the draft class is at a certain spot is not the way to think about it. Jets need to fill needs in FA. Yes, This draft is really deep and hopefully we can get some good players at DB, OLB, TE, or RB, but we only have so many picks. Getting Perry doesn't put us out of the running for selecting another OLB. Same with any other position.

I do understand that teams are calculating the depth of the draft in relation to the CB market though. Will be interesting how that influences the amount teams are willing to pay.

Forte came here, regardless of it being the Jets, and was coming off an injury. And he happens to be the same class of old stud RB, as the other two. Bad signing has nothing to do with the discussion points. Signing Rams cast-offs makes zero sense too. If you want a vet RB, at least get a guy worth the excitement.

Forte was a beast the first 4 months. Then, Fitz fell apart, and so did the OL, while the OC ran him up the gut - which he has NEVER been good at his whole career. Powell was a nice spark, but Forte was also utilized wrong. I have been one of Powell's biggest chearleaders for 3 years. Regardless, your point was that a old stud coming off injury wouldn't come here.

That's exactly what Forte did. It diproves both of your points, regardless of where you want to redirect the argument.

Forte was also coming to a team that won 10 games the year before and a fringe playoff team. This team has been dismantled and AP and Charles are looking for 2 things: one last pay day and a contender. I don't think the Jets will fit either criteria this coming year.

Irrelevant.

He came here because we gave him the best contract. 

 

If you read my criteria I mentioned one last pay day along with contending. I gave my opinion that I don't think the Jets will fit that. We have money in Forte and Powell and have a lot of holes with the releases.

I TRULY have NO IDEA what this Jets team will be by opening day September. QB? OLB?  #1WR ? (Decker will be a gimped #2), #1CB?, FS?,TE?, Kicker? TYPE OF OFFENSE?!?!?!?!?

 

LOL! I'm not angrily complaining like some others here who tend to blow gaskets more frequently, but it's rather comical and (maybe my Condition's been conditioned)  all I can do is laugh. 

NY Jets = Greek Tragedy/Comedy tumblr_inline_n44oavml7u1se0g5i.jpg

Kicker is one of the only things Jets have addressed: Catazaro.

Younger and better replacement for Marshall. Get him medical marijuana clearance. Could backfire though, he might forget his routes.

NFL rules supercede state law for pot. They can have a more restrictive drug policy than what is legal. Lots of legal drugs on the list. Just like other businesses, if you want to work for the NFL, you have to adhere to rules.

I'm a Mac supporter, but THIS is a SMART MOVE by a veteran GM. If you can't unload Sheldon, AT LEAST, use him as a chip to move up a couple of spots in a round IF you can't get a draft pick outright for him. Tanny netted us Thomas Jones by swapping picks (and a new contract for Jones) in the 3rd back in '07 with Chicago.

 

Ravens trade DT Timmy Jernigan to Eagles, improve third-round pick

 

The Baltimore Ravens traded defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan and a third-round compensatory pick to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for their third-round pick, it was announced Tuesday.

The Ravens will move up 25 spots in the third round -- from No. 99 to No. 74 overall -- in exchange for a starting defensive tackle who likely was not going to get re-signed after this season. Baltimore now has four of the first 78 picks in this year's draft.

Jernigan, a second-round pick in 2014, was Baltimore's best interior pass-rusher, but his production -- as well as his snaps -- declined in the second half of last season. He had five sacks in his first nine games and none in the final seven weeks.

"Timmy has been a terrific player for us for three seasons," general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "This will allow our young group of defensive linemen an opportunity to compete and play."

With the Eagles, Jernigan will help fill the void at defensive tackle left by Bennie Logan, who signed this offseason with the Kansas City Chiefs via free agency. Logan started 43 games over the past three seasons for Philadelphia and had a career-best 2.5 sacks in 2016.

"We are excited to add Timmy Jernigan to our defensive front. It was hard to move down in the third round, but we believe in building along the lines, and he is a good fit for our scheme," Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said. "At 24 years old, his best football is still ahead of him. We still have at least one pick in every round and eight total picks in the draft that will take place in Philadelphia in front of our fans in a few weeks."

The Ravens were willing to part with Jernigan, who had 13 sacks in his three seasons, because the interior of the defensive line is one of the team's deepest positions. The Ravens re-signed nose tackle Brandon Williams in free agency and return promising second-year player Michael Pierce along with recent draft picks Carl Davis and Willie Henry.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh acknowledged at the NFL owners meetings last month that the team was listening to offers for Jernigan.

"To me, Timmy is going to have the best year of his career, without question," Harbaugh said. "I know how passionate he is, I know how much he wants to be great."

The Ravens will now be without two starting defensive linemen from 2016, after defensive end Lawrence Guy signed with the New England Patriots in free agency.

First, I thought you couldn't trade comp picks. Second, the Jets could potentially get a 3rd round comp pick for SR leaving as a FA (I honestly don't think he will net us the max pick when all is said and done, but its possible). So why would we trade an asset for a move up in the same round when we could get a year if play and just about the same compensation a year later.

Titans released CB Jason McCourty.

The move clears $7 million in cap space and leaves behind no dead money. The No. 203 overall pick of the 2009 draft, McCourty was the Titans' longest-tenured player. Per USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the sides couldn't agree on a restructured contract. McCourty was mentioned as a candidate for release as far back as January. Limited to four games by injury in 2015, McCourty's play took a dive last season. He turns 30 in August. Dots will be connected between McCourty and his brother Devin in New England, but the Pats aren't in the habit of handing out feel-good contracts.

"AND WITH THE 5th PICK IN THE DRAFT . . . .. Tennessee selects CB Marshon Lattimore, Ohio State"

Wishful thinking. More than likely the Titans will look to capitalize on the deep class. Top of the second round seems like a good spot, if I were them.
