MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:42 PM) this guy is small
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) Most mocks had Lee at 17 to the Falcons
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:45 PM) He's a day 1 starter for us. We've needed OLB forever
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:46 PM) Plus we generate a great rush from wilk rich and Williams
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:50 PM) I wanted Lawson bad

Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:51 PM) Lee fills a need better
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) I would have liked tunsil to slide to us though. After east picking great
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:52 PM) Would you take Lee over Lawson?
azjetfan Icon : (28 April 2016 - 09:55 PM) I'm not inspire by that pick. Not even a little
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:01 PM) Wasn't an option. Lawson was gone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:02 PM) Lawson is more of a de. We already have too many of those. We only have 1 proven LBer and he's 32 and we run a 3-4. Lee is a day 1 starter
Jetsfan115 Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:03 PM) Broncos traded up for lynch
MikeGangGree... Icon : (28 April 2016 - 10:41 PM) Round 1 is done

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 11:19 AM) jets tried to trade up for tunsil but the price was too high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:10 PM) Tunsil will end up out of the league
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:12 PM) Lee isn't a pass rusher, hes a fast athletic LB. Hes probably their future at ILB, someone who can cover in the middle
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:16 PM) jets said he's an ILB for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 PM) If we could grab jack he would be an OLB
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 PM) ttians have 3 picks in the next 13 picks
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:33 PM) jack to jax 36th overal
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:33 PM) Did you hear that the 1st round pick for the Browns RETIRED after getting drafted
SoReALSoJetS Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 PM) Hi guys long time no talk hope everyone is well
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 07:46 PM) SMH
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:46 PM) JETS drafted QB Hackenberg PSU
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 07:47 PM) Should have picked Connor Cook.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 07:56 PM) I guess we are giving up on petty
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:02 PM) Or giving up on geno
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:02 PM) I said the rumor was they liked him more then cook
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 11:35 PM) I know I'm biased, but I've seen them both play. Cook is just better. Hackenberg had one good year. Cook has won more games, played in big games and won them....whatever, its done now so no sense on dwelling on it I guess. I just don't see the appeal in Hackenberg, nice kid, but I always thought he was really overrated. Oh well. I would have taken Kevin Hogan over Hackenberg.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:47 PM) From what I have read so far he had a great freshman year under Obrien in a pro style offense. At that point some considered him the next Andrew luck. Then Obrien left and they shifted to a spread under new HC who did poor job bringing in talent. He was also sacked and hit a million times. Might be shell shocked.

Laveranues Coles: The fact that he still doesnít have a deal is troubling, considering Coles walked away from a guaranteed $6 million payday with the Jets in 2009. When he left that money on the table, the natural assumption was that something fishy was going on and that Coles already had another lucrative landing zone in place. But now that he hasnít gotten a new deal, it just looks like Coles was betting he could land a whopper of a deal in free agency. But the wide receiver market has been ultra-weak, to the point that Cincinnatiís T.J. Houshmandzadeh may have to return to Cincinnati to get a solid payday. Like Ray Lewis, itís looking like the 31-year-old Coles may have grossly overestimated his worth.

On nfl network (the day Coles was released) Adam said his agent assured him he could get a long term deal done with at least 6 million the first year. I guess Coles will be looking for a new agent soon.

I'm not surprised, he's a concussion prone, 31 year old POSSESSION WR. You can get a rookie a lot cheaper in the lower round to do the same thing.

Playing for the Bengals will be punishment at any price. The only positive is if Carson Palmer comes back from injury. The 0% chance of winning combined with Ocho Cinco would sap all the fight left in Coles.

I was telling my boss at work that Coles is crazy if he thinks he's getting one last LTC. He'd be lucky to get a backloaded 4yr/$18 million contract. No team is going to sign him to retire with them.

He's going to play journeyman like Keyshawn Johnson did, latch on to programs to find out he might be third or fourth on the depth chart -- only to bow out ungracefully in training camp.

He can find a one or two year deal. But he's sounding like he wants a 5yr contract worth $30+ million.

Isn't it satisfying when arrogant players or celebs over estimate their worth? Coles never should have opened his mouth about his contract. It's not that doing so is wrong, but that Coles never deserved what he thought he did.

Laveranues Coles' agent made a gamble when he passed up $6 million guaranteed from the Jets for 2009 to enter free agency. He might not be Coles' agent for long.

The Dolphins have made it known they are not interested in Coles. It speaks very badly for Coles' market value when the man who drafted him, Bill Parcells, decides to stay away despite a glaring receiver need. It also might indicate that the Miami triumvirate doesn't like seeing their name connected to players they aren't interested in.

Coles could be a fallback plan for the Bengals if the don't get T.J. Houshmandzadeh. If not, the Bills have no one to bid against. The Jets are "monitoring the situation," but they are longshots.

Perhaps Coles will get his $6 million back, but he's learning that the free agent market isn't always what you expect. Especially if you are over 30.

The best place for Coles is back with us - but not for $6m.

I think he could still come back

Despite the glaring need we'd have at WR, would we really want Coles back? For the past three years he's wanted new contracts. Thats too much of a distraction for the team. I'd rather us move on without him to allow for chemistry to build between whoever our QB will be & WR's that actually WANT to be here. I like Coles as a player. I even have his jersey, but I honestly could care less if he comes back or not. He's only another concussion away from being done; therefore not worth a multi-year contract.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

Out of the two teams reportedly showing interest, Coles should sign with the Bengals. He'll have a better QB throwing to him in Palmer and a lot more looks with defenses focusing on Ocho Cinco.

He was fine for team chemistry throughout training camps and the season during the last couple years. He was never anywhere near causing a Kendall-like situation, not even close.
