Trevon Wesco days are numbered. 

I don't want to nit pick, but:

1. wasn't he drafted by JD's predecessor?

2. wasn't he a 4th round pick? Do you think all 4th round picks work out?

3. even if he was a 1st rounder, don't you always want depth and upgrades?

I get that it was mostly just the schtick - but JD grabbed a guy for the PS that may be helpful while the coach staff took a TE that wasn't cutting it (except for blocking) and tried to make him more useful. Maybe they want him on the line blocking and a FB?

Wesco or the new Guy? Nothing as the new guy just got here, is only on the practice squad and we haven't won a game, so I don't know. I don't even know if Wesco has been active or even played. I am not good enough to tell if he is blocking or FBing better than he should. In fact, i don't even know how to Quote effectively, since my original comment was supposed to be about the 'another wasted draft pick'. So, I failed all the way around.

Interesting signing.  He's reputed to be a strong blocker and solid receiver.  Not good news for Wesco.

Also, don't know who that is in the picture the Jets posted, as pretty sure Bawden is a white guy.

Just make Josh Adams the fu@kin FB

Adams is not a FB. If anything, he has slimmed down considerably since his playing days at Notre Dame where he was more of a bruiser type runner. He dramatically changed his physique to  gain speed and be lighter on his feet, so no, he doesnt fit the FB role. I really would like to see Adams get some touches. He was actually their best YPC back last year I believe.

The Bucs won 2 games in 1976 and 1977 combined.  What did Lee Roy Selmon do positive to help that team win games? 

Truthfully I don't care about the Bucs or any other NFL team but the NY Jets.

Quarterback turned fullback who has bought into the physicality of the fullback position and has the mangled nose to prove it. Bawden has good size and is a competent pass-catcher. The market for old-school fullbacks has shrunk, but he has the ability to find a roster home as a contributing lead blocker and pass catcher on play-action.

Nice so the Wildcat is coming soon.

Jets looking for their Juszczyk. NOT saying this guy is him, just thinking they're looking for a similar skillset player.

True. Was trying to think outside the box a little
