Good story to see. Glad to see the team moving on earlier from their mistakes, and giving hard working guys with a good attitude a chance. Also, I'm glad to see the team potentially finding and developing talent that wasn't highly drafted (if at all) to fill gaps (as opposed to desperation starters).

It's crazy to think that both of these guys, Gipson and Brownlee, probably went into camp thinking it would take a miracle for one of them to make it; much less both of them.  When these guys signed we still had Davis and Mims on the roster.  I think most expected us to give Mims one more year to see how playing with AR could change things for him.  These two guys must have went out and immediately showed the coaching staff that they are on another level, making the decision to trade/cut Mims that much easier.  

 

They definitely earned their spots, and really cool to see both of them make it together after becoming such tight friends.  Hopefully they continue to push each other and leave no doubt that they should be a part of the Jets' future plans.
