Sources Say Jets Willing To Part With 1st Round Pick For Michael Turner

Scout.com reports "sources familiar with the Chargers" believe the Jets are willing to trade their first-round pick for Michael Turner. Turner, a restricted free agent, isn't even under contract with San Diego, but this appears to be a possibility once he's tendered. The Jets would then explore signing him long term. San Diego is reportedly now looking at running back prospects, possibly Penn State's Tony Hunt.
Source: scout.com


i would be super pissed if we did this. "i do not think micheal turner is worth a 1st round draft choice. even though it will be at #25, we should bring in our own players via the draft and coach them up in our system. i just feel like we would be getting ripped off because SD wouldn't be losing anything. whether or not turner is on their team next season does not really matter since they have LT. giving them a 1st rounder when james and alexander couldn't even get a 2nd rounder would be totally unfair to us. we should just draft micheal bush at #37 since he might be the steal of the draft when he turns out to be a TD machine."

this might just be a smoke screen by the Chargers looking to get a higher pick in the 1st round for turner or it could be a smoke scrren by the Jets looking to trap the Chargers into trading Turner for a 2nd rounder..

if its the Jets than Schott must really have seen something in the guy from his time in San Diego if he's willing to give up a first!

Scout.com doesn't know a thing about what the Jets are gonna do. Who are these "sources"? Last time I checked, the Jets front office was like Fort Knox. Infomation doesn't leak out of there anymore.

It's not even offseason yet and there are so-called sources inside the Chargers FO that are telling people Michael Turner is up for a grabs? I don't think so. Sounds like some talking internet heads. I'm willing to bet that the Turner doesn't even come to NY because the Jets aren't gonna part with draft picks when they can get a RB in the draft. Tanny knows better. He's already said they are gonna build the right way. You don't trade for a franchise RB, you draft them.

No f.ing thank you he's not worth a first rounder, he's gonna ask for a lot of money because he's like the only FA RB, and we could just get Micheal Bush in the second round meanwhile we can get a DE in the first round. He's Not that good.

Let's hope management realizes that too! These days I get nervous.

In all honesty, this is just the same speculation that reporters keep writing about because it's been out there written already by some other moron that is speculating. It's people SPECULATING. They wouldn't even give up a 1st round pick for Reggie Bush. Why would they do it for Turner?

Bush is kinda like the Maurice Jones-Drew in this draft. and i wouldnt mind having a guy like that on this team. He got some major yards while splitting time w/ Taylor. He also ran all over the Pats. icon_idea.gif

That's because the Cards o-line blows. Look at Marshall Faulk and the Rams, he was drafted by the Colts, look at Corey Dillon, he was drafted by the Bengals, but he helped the Pats get to the Super Bowl in 04. Not saying to give the Chargers a 1st, but James isn't the problem in Arizona.

I don't know what you're pointing to saying they are similiar...but I don't see any similiarities...other than possible draft spots.

Michael Bush is 6'3"...
Maurice Drew is 5'7"...

Michael Bush is injured...
Maurice Drew had a killer final season...

Michael Bush is a big, slow guy...
Marice Drew is a burner with power...



I just don't see the comparisons...

This trade is a good thing. I think the NY teams need to band together and make stupid trades to make the Chargers as strong as possible. The Giants already did their part...

If they did that trade, I will be alittle bit mad, unless Turner runs for over 1,200 yards, I will say it was a horrible trade. Turner was a 5th round draft pick, and people are acting like this guy is top 10 talent. Or even first round talent, the Chargers have to know that he really doesnt have that much value, I mean the most carries he had in a season was 80. Thats not worth a first round pick to me. I would be mad if this happened.

Good post. IMO it all seems like speculation. I doubt anyone really knows what the Jets are going to this offseason (besides themselves), which is the way it should be.

If he didn't run for 1600 yards then I'd be pissed. 1200 is pedestrian for a 1st round pick.

None the less, Tony Hunt seems to be on the Jets radar. He's a big back at 237 lbs. That's nice.

For the 179th time, Turner has not proved he is worth giving up a 1st round pick for! Especially this year with the amount of talent available in the draft.

It's no secret that I don't think Turner is worthy of a first rounder. However, as others have said, Schott was in San Diego for Turner's first two years. He certainly knows a lot more about Turner than any of us do. If he and Tangini decide to give up the first rounder for him, there must be a damn good reason. If they do pull the trigger on this, I'm gonna reserve my judgement until I see Turner play. I'm hoping they don't, but if they do it could only be because Schott really likes him.
