Gase already started trading people? A (presumably) low sixth round pick for Lee? might as well keep him as a backup.

LOoks like he’s trying to make a point, nothing else. Kicking, pissing on a guy he already knocked down.  Reminds of the wife who sold her husband’s Mercedes for $800 during the divorce to get back at him. The more I hear the less I like

 Gase is jacked up and trading on emotions.   This is a big swingin' d--k move that he forced to make a point. He sold Lee too low...


Yeah I mean Lee is an idiot. The final straw may have been the laughing tweet he posted, then deleted about the Mac firing. This may actually not even be Gase behind this move.

i should think williams had some input.  6th seems pretty cheap for lee.  there may be something else going on besides his play on the field.

Wishful thinking buddy. This is just Gase getting chump change returns before he had to.

 Embrace the response everyone wanted. This is gonna be good times I'm feeling.

Have you ever heard the tradegy of Darth Gase ious the wise?

He can influence the midi-chlorines to raise the jets from the dead.

The Jets traded for a former pro bowl player in Osemele by using a 5th and getting a 6th back yet people expected more for Lee in the last year of his deal?

Exactly.. should have traded him last yr

Yeah he is much better

Stats wise it’s kind of a push.. I wouldn’t say the value is that far off, a late 6th is basically nothing

This trade frees up $3.2M

Hopefully this is precursor to trading for & signing a high priced Center.

So Gase is clearly a big fan.

Don't really have a problem with this though.  If not this, the most he'd contribute would be spending the year as a backup before walking for nothing, while also possibly not even making it out of camp.  The only reason for additional comittment to Lee was Macc's desperation to not make himself look like an even bigger idiot.

A 6th? That’s it? Should’ve just kept him and see what he can do

6th round pick? Gimme a break.  We would've been better off keeping him at least through camp instead of just giving him away.

This trade sucks. If Macc made it people would be screaming what an idiot he is!!!

That said, I called this earlier today. Now we find out what Gase thinks of Leo and some of Macc's other picks.... This is going to get crazy.

Once they couldn't move Lee during the draft you had to know that there was basically no market for him.   A 6th is better than nothing and he likely would have been cut during camp.   Another failed NY Jets draft pick.   I wonder what pres thinks about it.

Crazy. This is flat our stupidity.  Macc used a 5th to get KO and a 6th.  Gase gets a low 6th for Lee.  Unreal.  

The chiefs are laughing at the laughing stock Jets

Nice a 6th... can't wait until Macc uses it to trade back for an extra 7th and takes an DL from a small school and a CB recovering from a Lisfranc injury.

So you think they will rehire him?

Some perspective...
Jets acquired former pro bowl Guard Osemele (2 years left on his contract) and a 6th for a 5th. Why would anyone think that the Jets would get more compensation back for Lee on the last year of his deal after being a bust?
 
Well he's 24 years old and at the risk of referring to PFF, he was ranked as the 24th best linebacker and an above average rating. He did play well in the beginning of last season, scored a TD and 3 INTs in 12 games.

I'm not a Lee fan at all, but this guy Gase is a piece of work. Hopefully Lee doesn't suddenly ball out in KC and make this organization look even worse. What a day lol.

Lee had made a smilie face tweet, he later deleted, about the Mac firing.  Probably peed Gase off and he ejected him

Keep him for what?  He cant play, will be gone in a year and we arent competing for anything this year.

Lst someone else have a shot this year and take the 6th.

They're bouncing Lee for chump change because he skipped OTA's. I'd expect Gase is going to chop a few heads off to set a tone. I'm interested, moving forward, in what happens to Leonard Williams and Robbie Anderson.

Why are you comparing a 24 year old ILB on a rookie contract to a 30 year old (at the start of the season) guard making $13mm/year?

Wow, thats as close to "worthless" as you can get.  6th or 7th rounders mean GMGase really wanted him gone.

He's worth more as a one-year backup than a 6th, tbqh, but I expect this is just the start to the Gase Purge (tm).

Didn't know this... Heard Lee could be a douche, this confirms it.
