Here's a real quick recap of the Green and White Scrimmage in Cortland, NY: Story of the Day: Sanchez shines, while Clemens looks very ordinary Clemens started with the ones and couldn't g

btw all, I am heading home tonight, back to my real life (which blows = D). Thanks for taking the time to read my thoughts on camp, and here's hoping the Jets do well this season. I hope you took som

Let TJ go HELL NO......He was last years leading rusher and scorer. If LW goes down then what?

RB was not a need, IMHO. I don't like this one at all. Team needs a WR, TE, DE long before RB.

Blech.

They will fill those needs... no everything is as simple as it looks... RB is a need because it looks like TJ is forcing his way out of town...

Good pick. Very good. He is insurance if things go bad with Jones situation and long term, he is a great thunder/lightening combo with Leon. I guess we have to hope for the best with Stuckey/Clowney and pick up the blocking TE with the last pick or after the June 1 cuts.

Definitely like the pick, we needed a running back and we got a bruising-downhill runner, something we haven't had for a while.

Now, I definitely would have liked Jarron Gilbert here, but Rex personally worked him out at his proday and was even running his drills on the field. If Rex was ok with nabbing Green, than I'm sure he likes him quite a bit.

We were picking 11 picks later. We gave up two picks to move in front of 11 teams in the 3rd? We got hosed by DETROIT!

We have one pick left this entire draft!

WE NEED: WR, TE, DE, S

??????

One of the picks was a mid-to-late 7th rounder. Stop it. A guy you pick there is no different than a non drafted free agent that you sign after the draft.

We gave up a 4th but obviously this is the guy we want, and with our OLine, this is a good move. This kid will plow through the holes our OLine creates. No *****-footing like TJ.

You know what? Screw insurance for Jones and the inevitable. Trade Jones now. Maybe we can get back a third.

That would be icing on the cake of this weekend, getting a 3rd for TJ. No way in hell that's gonna happen though.

we will trade TJ for a 4th IMO

agree Rich..could be,,i read last week thata NFL GM said Jets could probably only get a 5 for TJ dues to age/contract

I say trade him and draft the guy who beat out Nicks as UNC's #1 WR before he got hurt,,Brandon Tate

No one is considering the concern for the Jets FO might be Leon and not Jones?

Jones is getting cut next year; that's pretty much a given. Leon is a free agent next year & even though they've been talking for some time now, the Jets have not locked him up yet.
