azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:37 PM) rumor has it he wanted a raise over his $5.5 million base this year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:39 PM) 33 is young for a guard. he's got at least 3-4 more years in him
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) Mmmmm I disagree.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:40 PM) I would go 2 year deal.
azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:41 PM) Maybe longer if we could get out of it after 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 11:36 AM) backloaded 4 year deal ca cut after 2 years wit minimum cap hit
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 June 2015 - 02:22 PM) Jets sign free agent OT Charlles Brown
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:48 PM) We won't be able to backload it. He won't accept the offer. Keep in mind he requested he release because they couldn't come to an agreement on a raise.
azjetfan Icon : (14 June 2015 - 01:49 PM) He is probably looking for $7 million or more per year.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 09:44 AM) he was only making 5.5 million this year. we can give him 10 mil signing bonus onf a 5 year deal and a low base salary (like 3 mil a year) it'll average out to 5 mil a year, but he'll get 13 million this year (more then double) and will cost 5 mil a year against the cap for the rest of the deal
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Any news on Mathis at all? Haven't heard anything since his release.
2JBallar01 Icon : (15 June 2015 - 02:17 PM) Also, Sam Baker was cut today as well
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 04:52 PM) Titans releasing RB Shonn Greene
MikeGangGree... Icon : (16 June 2015 - 10:40 PM) TEH WARRIORS
santana Icon : (16 June 2015 - 11:08 PM) This trophy ceremony awkward as fuck I had to turn it off
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:02 PM) It really was. It was more Doris Burke interviewing the Warriors than it was a trophy ceremony. Plus Adam Silver forgot to hand the Warriors owner the trophy after he was done talking to the crowd.
Mr_Jet Icon : (17 June 2015 - 08:03 PM) R.I.P. Stuart Scott
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE SILVER
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 June 2015 - 10:05 PM) FIRE BURKE
MikeGangGree... Icon : (19 June 2015 - 06:27 PM) THE A-ROD!!
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:19 PM) god damn week no activity in here
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:20 PM) might have to chop this table up into fire wood
santana Icon : (26 June 2015 - 12:26 PM) FIRE WOOD!
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:54 PM) Kristaps Porzingis???
Mr_Jet Icon : (26 June 2015 - 05:55 PM) You'd think Isiah Thomas was still running the Knicks last night.
santana Icon : (27 June 2015 - 07:30 PM) Lol yeah no clue about those names
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) Is there any chance that Porzingis ends up being good?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:10 AM) I'm guessing he won't be the next Pau Gasol or Dirk Nowviski
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:41 AM) You never know, he could be as good as Gasol brothers or Dirk. Honestly the Knicks picking at #4 did the same thing the 3 teams picking ahead of them did. Picked a 19 year who could go boom or bust.
Mr_Jet Icon : (28 June 2015 - 11:45 AM) Porzingis seems to have the "I'm going to prove them wrong" type of attitude needed to overcome people's doubts about him. Hopefully he'll have the work ethic that goes along with that attitude.
azjetfan Icon : (28 June 2015 - 10:17 PM) In other news I decided to shave the dome. Since the hair was falling out anyway I figured I would show it who's boss
santana Icon : (29 June 2015 - 01:11 PM) Deisel up shave the dome
Mr_Jet Icon : (29 June 2015 - 04:49 PM) Welcome home.
azjetfan Icon : (29 June 2015 - 08:59 PM) I feel fast.
azjetfan Icon : (01 July 2015 - 07:53 PM) Shot an 86 today. Personal best.
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) well done
santana Icon : (01 July 2015 - 08:19 PM) im going to play friday
blk_orion Icon : (02 July 2015 - 08:57 AM) play what? golf?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) Sheldon Richardson suspended 4 game for substance abuse.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 01:16 PM) f***
ganggreen2003 Icon : (02 July 2015 - 06:15 PM) DAMNIT TO f***ing HELL!!!!

QUOTE
Jets' Washington having breakout season
By Jane McManus
The Journal News November 21, 2008

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - After Leon Washington was drafted by the Jets in the fourth round in 2006, the running back would pay attention to Curtis Martin, even though the veteran was injured.

He'd watch Martin during position meetings as he carefully took notes so neat and precise that Washington was amazed.


OAS_AD('ArticleFlex_1'); "When he takes his notes, he has the best handwriting I've ever seen," Washington said. "It goes to show how much detail he puts into everything he does in life."

Washington's notes aren't perfect yet, but he got the overall message. Now in his third season with the Jets, Washington is known for practicing just as hard as he plays. The running back has been improving field position and gaining key yards all season. Washington last week was named AFC special-teams player of the week after the Jets beat the Patriots for sole possession of first place in the AFC East.

That's only one of the plaudits Washington has received this season. He leads the NFL in combined yards with 1,475 and broke the team record for career kickoff returns for touchdowns with his fourth. He has also had some heads-up plays for the Jets, such as making sure he was out of bounds to stop a rolling ball on a kickoff return. Due to a little-known rule, the Jets got the ball on the 40-yard line.

"He's a great player,'' running back Thomas Jones said. "He's gifted, he's got great speed, great vision; he can do it all, whether he's running the ball, catching the ball or returning. He's a great player, and we're glad to have him on the team."

Consider then, that Washington is doing this all at 5-foot-8 and 202 pounds. There is a huge variety in an NFL lineup when it comes to sizes and shapes - offensive linemen look very different than cornerbacks - but even taking that into account, Washington could be at a disadvantage.

"Yeah, if you look at Leon's stature as far as his weight, size and height, you'd say by NFL standards, especially for the running-back position, he can't survive," fullback Tony Richardson said. "But the size of his heart is probably bigger than half the guys' in this room."

Washington, who came out of Florida State after growing up in Jacksonville, said he has always refused to see his size as a drawback.

"The best guys that played this game, some of the guys like Barry Sanders, Emmitt Smith, they were 5-10 and shorter, so I can use that to my advantage," Washington said.

During the offseason after his second year in the league, Washington went up 25 pounds on all his lifts and took the Jets' offseason training crown. And he isn't afraid to block. In the first Patriots game this season, Washington got in between Brett Favre and Adalius Thomas before the linebacker ultimately sacked Favre with Washington hanging on.

"That's Leon," Richardson said. "I'll put him in a fight with anybody, especially on the football field because he's going to give you everything he has with his ability."

Where other guys are loud and boisterous off the field, Washington treats the Florham Park facility as an office - he's all business. He takes this seriously, and on game day, that's the way it needs to be.

"When he gets out there you see that passion and that excitement he brings," Jets center Nick Mangold said.

For Mangini, who used to get on Washington for fumbles and missed plays in Washington's rookie year, it has been good to see him come into his own this season.

"It's really satisfying to see," Mangini said. "He's one of the guys that came in with me and to see his growth and development is great."
