Chris Johnson signs 2 year deal - http://nyjetsfan.com...showtopic=38339
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:36 AM) Idk about the numbers, I read an article that said that the Jets offered a "attractive" deal to Johnson and that it was always a longshot that he would sign yesterday, but the Jets believe the deal is market value for him

The Jets put together a convincing package on Tuesday to him, on and off the field. Now it is up to him. - See more at: http://m.metro.us/ne...h.cFze6cx8.dpuf

Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:34 PM) Well considering they already retired #28 in honor of Curtis Martin, I don't see Johnson wearing #28.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:35 PM) Kind of defeats the purpose of retiring a number.
Mr_Jet Icon : (Today, 02:39 PM) But I know he better not wear LaMont Jordan's number. Or I'll be pissed.

Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Today, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Today, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Today, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale

Texans' Brian Cushing Suspended 4 Games

Posted 07 May 2010 - 06:05 PM

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=5172060

The Houston Texans' defense took a major blow Friday when defensive rookie of the year Brian Cushing learned he is being suspended four games for violating the NFL's steroid policy, according to league sources.

Cushing appealed the league's decision at a hearing at the NFL scouting combine in February but was informed Friday his appeal had been rejected, according to sources.

Cushing will be allowed to participate in training camp with the Texans this summer, but then will serve his four game suspension to start the 2010 regular season.

Cushing's attorney, Harvey Steinberg, did not return telephone calls seeking comment.

The Texans defense will suffer without Cushing, especially considering that its first game of the season is against the defending AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts. Cushing will also miss games against the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders.

Cushing, who was voted to the Pro Bowl, had 133 tackles, helped lead the Texans to a 9-7 record, their first winning season in franchise history. Cushing finished the season with five sacks, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Kind of not surprised by this news. He was suspected of being on roids while at USC. Still wish he was on the Jets though. I think he'd be amazing under a coach like Rex Ryan. But if I were Clay Matthews I'd be a little concerned right now.

Yeah Clay Matthews probably a roider as well, both were rumored to be right? Matthews looks like a roider just like Cushing did. Big loss for the Texans, he was their best defensive player last year.

Yea I'm not shocked either but I'm wondering about all of this. The line between the supplements that are allowed and the ones that are banned is so thin, that does it really make a difference whether this guy eats powder A that's on the banned list or powder B that's allowed? Pace got suspended last year, the Williamses are taking their fight all the way to the Supreme Court & every year, a few players claim that they were suspended for eating stuff they thought was legal. I don't think Cushing was doing cycles of anything crazy, I just think that he'll tell his nutritionist to give him a supplement that's not banned next time. I kinda think that guys in the NFL are so far ahead of this testing shit and the NFL knows it. They keep a nominal list and suspend players to show that the league is clean, but in reality, I think most of the guys go far and beyond basic vitamins.

There are certain things you can take and certain things you can't. Most if not all pro athlete know or should know about what their taking. However, Cushing got caught at USC for Juicing. He got caught again.

"Juicing" is such a general term. Whatever, I don't think this matters at all. He'll come back and will eat a different supplement that does the same shit but the NFL says is okay.

It's not general at all. You can either shoot up roids or human growth hormone. Thats called "Juicing"... most if not everything else is a pill or power. When you "juice" its roids or HGH. The NFL has banned both.

Actually I think that's a after and before picture. I think the 2nd picture was a before then the first picture (the one when he's in the red shirt) is after an injury he had when he couldn't train for months. Not training caused him to lose that steroid muscle he had in that 2nd picture.

[quote] [size="4"] Houston [url="http://nfl.fanhouse.com/team/houston-texans"][color="#027fb5"]Texans[/color][/url] linebacker [url="http://nfl.fanhouse.com/players/brian-cushing/9279"][color="#027fb5"]Brian Cushing[/color][/url] received his four-game suspension because he tested positive for elevated levels of the hormone hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), which is not a steroid but is a substance commonly used by steroid users to restore normal testosterone levels during down cycles. ESPN's Adam Schefter was the first to report the substance for which Cushing tested positive, and a source close to the situation confirmed the report to FanHouse on Tuesday morning.

This isn't the first time hCG has been a presence in the sports news cycle. Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez was suspended for 50 games last year when he was found to have a prescription for hCG. And in October of 2008, admitted steroid user, author and reality TV star Jose Canseco was detained at the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego for trying to bring hCG into this country from Mexico.

That possible. That reminds me of a guy at my gym. The guy was massive and shredded and then he was M.I.A for like 6 or 7 months. He came back after his hiatus and he was deflated. It was actually funny.
