azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6

Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.

I'm unemployed right now and so are millions of other Americans, and it doesn't look good for the immediate future. There's 12% unemployment in Florida where i live. It makes me sick to hear Revis turn down that kind of money. I don't want him as a member of my Jets.

I like the idea. Why wouldn't this work for the Jets? He gets $100 mil in his pocket no matter what. If he keeps up his performance, he can go over Aso's salary by way of bonus money. I wonder how much the Jets are guaranteeing in their contract offer.
[/quote]

It doesn't work that way, and i'm not trying to be a jerk, but obviously you don't understand NFL contracts. he doesn't get 100 million no matter what. the whole contract will never be guarenteed, and at the end its teh total compensation and what yoru saying will be 160 million which is exactly what revis wants and what the jets won't give him

where did[i] you get 160 mil thts a number f[/i]or someone like C mart but not Revis. Revis doesn't translate into points.But than this is just a game as we will soon find out.I am afraid that this could change revis as a shut down corner he has upset his destiny its on a different course now.

The 160 number came from a report stating the Jets offered a 10 yr 120 million dollar contract, but Mevis' people came back saying it was 40 million short.

Mevis is trying to get this huge payday because he knows he wont be getting another one after this. I got a bad feeling we're going to get scerwed even harder by him after he does finally get a deal. This'll likely be his last contract because no one is going to want to touch him after all this is said and done. He likely wont be a shutdown corner anymore because his mind will be too busy thinking of his bank account rather than his duties on the field.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

:Cry:

So, a quick recap here. D. Revis is in the middle of his rookie contract. He has rejected a 10 year, 120 Million Dollar contract. D. Revis wants 160 Million Dollars. You have got to be f***ing kidding me. I see why ticket sales and all the merchandise is so much money. Holy f*** batman. If you arent willing to take a 120 Million Dollar contract for the chance to play on what could be the greatest defense in a long time, and even a Super Bowl? WTF are you doing as a football player?

IDK if you watched hardknocks last night, but they had MT driving to meet with revis's people at that now famous friday meeting at roscoes diner that lasted 3 hours. The cameras weren't allowed in the meeting but when MT came out he seemed very down and upset and all he said was he didn't even agree with 1 thing they said all meeting.

By Rich Cimini
ESPNNewYork.com

CORTLAND, N.Y. -- The New York Jets and the agents for Darrelle Revis reached a truce, issuing a joint statement Thursday in which they vowed to work toward a resolution to the contract standoff.

"Both parties have had conversations to clear the air and will continue to negotiate with the hopes of reaching an agreement," the statement read. "From this point forward, all discussions regarding these negotiations will remain confidential."

It's time for the Jets' brass to be quiet, and just focus on signing Darrelle Revis, Johnette Howard writes.

Minutes after the statement was released to reporters, coach Rex Ryan was asked to comment. The usually talkative Ryan looked at the Jets' public relations director, turned back toward reporters and said: "Can't talk about it."

The sniping between the two sides escalated in recent days, with the agents calling the Jets "blatant liars." It prompted Ryan to make an unorthodox proposal: He invited Revis and his agents to training camp to meet with the entire team. Then, on Wednesday night's debut of "Hard Knocks," general manager Mike Tannenbaum painted a grim picture of the Revis negotiations. In recent days, owner Woody Johnson has made a media blitz, making ominous statements about Revis' chances of playing this season.

The war of words -- and the blatant posturing -- is over. Now the question becomes whether the two sides can hammer out a deal, As of early this morning, they were miles apart, according to sources.
The All-Pro cornerback has missed 11 days, including Wednesday, since the team reported for training camp at SUNY Cortland. He's scheduled to make $1 million in the fourth year of his six-year rookie deal, but wants to become the league's highest-paid cornerback.

Revis is seeking a deal bigger than the three-year, $45.3 million extension Oakland's Nnamdi Asomugha signed last offseason. He has not commented publicly since minicamp in June.

There are a few things I have realized about Mr. Jet over a few topics.

1) He is a racist. By constantly using race as a battling tool.
2) He is an extreme Liberal. If you are on either extreme you are probabaly more wrong than right.
3) He is one of those people who will never admit fault, error or defeat.
4)His life sucks and he takes it out on people who don't share in his views.

You are aware that there is a thing called the salary cap right? Or at least there will be. That's the issue. Who cares if it's for five years or ten years, once the cap is back in place it's gonna be ridiculously hard to pay a guy that kind of money who's not your quarterback. Not to mention that no one has any way of knowing what the cap will be when it comes back.

And on the 13th day of Darrelle Revis' holdout ... there was silence. Again.

Both the New York Jets and Revis' representatives honored their gag-order agreement, with neither side commenting publicly on the negotiations.

After a media blitz aimed to win public support and put pressure on the Revis camp, the Jets have shut it down. The All-Pro cornerback's chatty agents, too, haven't returned phone calls.

An interesting subplot will be HBO's "Hard Knocks." In Wednesday night's premier, the show devoted a considerable amount of air time to Revis' holdout, with comments from Rex Ryan, GM Mike Tannenbaum and owner Woody Johnson.

Will the Jets lift the media blackout for HBO, allowing the cable network to air Revis-related material in next Wednesday's episode? That, of course, would be a double standard. The Jets won't comment on their plans, deferring questions to HBO.

"We will continue to follow all of the important storylines concerning the New York Jets, including Darrelle Revis," an HBO spokesman said. "If management tells us a matter is private, we will honor that request."

A nugget or two on the negotiations would make for good TV -- no one is denying that -- but it also would make the Jets look bad and two-faced. If you want to keep it confidential, stick to your guns.

Meanwhile, the two sides continue to work toward a resolution. Revis, seeking about $16 million per year, has said through his agents that he won't report unless he gets a new contract. The Jets are offering short- and long-term deals, the latter a 10-year, $120 million proposal. How much is fully guaranteed, however, remains a question.

People familiar with the talks believe the Jets' best chance of getting Revis into camp is with a "band-aid" contract, a short-term agreement that bumps up his 2010 compensation from $1 million. In that case, they could re-open long-term talks after the season, when the league's labor situation might be clarified.

The Jets' short-term offer contains about $5 million in 2010 pay, and there's no way that will get it done. If Johnson wants Revis, he'll have to step up with more cash.
