MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) OK so Bill O brien and Sean Payton might get fired according to Fox this morning
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 January 2017 - 05:56 PM) I would do anything to get one of them as OC
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) texans coach? i doubt he gets fired
santana Icon : (02 January 2017 - 02:19 PM) but he would be ideal if the jets were to flush bowles out

azjetfan Icon : (05 January 2017 - 09:54 PM) Sean Payton will get another HC gig. Obrien would be good.
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:18 PM) Howard from Alabama seems legit. #88 TE
azjetfan Icon : (09 January 2017 - 11:20 PM) Williams the WR from Clemson looks like they are out to get him. He has taken some huge hits
vjdbbq Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:12 AM) We'll take Williams in the first round .
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 10:48 AM) I'd love Howard in the 2nd round if he's still there. I like Williams a lot as well, but I just don't see WR being big enough of a need, and there should be better talent on the board at 6
Jetsfan115 Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:21 PM) Raiders OC Musgrave not expected to return to OAK. what do you think about getting him? he did wonders with the oakland offense this year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (10 January 2017 - 07:39 PM) Definitely an appealing choice given with his history of progressing Carr. We need someone with a track record of grooming young QBs
MikeGangGree... Icon : (12 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) I want Watson now! after what he did Monday night I'm sold on him at QB. He moved the ball all night on Alabama and after hurts scored that TD he just told his team "Lets end this"
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:31 PM) An Ohio prosecutor says he wants to know what punishment Cincinnati Bengals player Adam "Pacman" Jones faces from the NFL before deciding how to proceed over Jones' latest arrest, Dan Sewell of the Associated Press reports..

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters tells WKRC-TV he's asking "what is the normal" for a player with multiple offenses and who's been suspended before.

An NFL spokesman said on Thursday that Jones' case is "under review" and declined to comment further.

Jones was jailed Jan. 3 on charges he head-butted police and spit on a nurse after his arrest for assault. Authorities say he was so combative he had to be placed in a restraint chair.

Jones says he anticipates the charges will be dismissed.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (12 January 2017 - 06:32 PM) we wont get watson. he's going 1st overall to the browns
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:06 PM) Is Watson a product of Clemson's staff and supporting cast? Taj Boyd also put up some decent numbers if I remember correctly but he couldn't even make a scout team in the NFL.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) From what I have read (although limited) he is not the highest ranked QB in the draft.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:11 PM) "No quarterback in this draft -- not Mitch Trubisky, not Watson, not DeShone Kizer -- is considered a sure thing. The folks at Scouts Inc. rank Trubisky, Watson and Kizer as the 21st, 38th and 46th prospects on their big board, respectively." ESPN
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:12 PM) If we can get a decent return for Richardson we may be able to make a move into the mid teens to early 20s if the Brass really likes Watson.
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 09:13 PM) Personally I don't think the jets have a clue on who they will take. We still have to hit FA and manage our roster
azjetfan Icon : (12 January 2017 - 11:46 PM) Jets to interview Broncos assistant Studesville for OC
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:28 PM) Why? seems like a weird choice
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 January 2017 - 01:29 PM) Leonard Williams replacing Khalil Mack in Pro Bowl
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm not buying Watson, even after that championship game. Dude threw too many picks in his day
Chadforpresi... Icon : (13 January 2017 - 09:49 PM) I'm really curious to see what we get for Richardson, but I have a bad feeling his value is at an all time low between his crap season and bad attitude
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 12:16 AM) I agree. He is a first round talent but a fourth round headache. We will be lucky to get a 2nd
Chadforpresi... Icon : (14 January 2017 - 08:41 AM) Yeah precisely. 2nd rounder would be a huge stretch. 3rd or 4th is more likely
vjdbbq Icon : (14 January 2017 - 02:18 PM) Send Sheldon someplace he will never see the playoffs ; like Jacksonville ; then he will have time to find da ho's .
azjetfan Icon : (14 January 2017 - 07:25 PM) R Sherman is getting torched by the Falcons.
vjdbbq Icon : (16 January 2017 - 09:37 AM) Pats vs Pitt - root for injuries
Jetsfan115 Icon : (16 January 2017 - 12:36 PM) GB-ATL game is gonna be a hell of a shootout. that throw rodgers made on 3rd and 20 with 12 seconds left in a tied game was ridiculous. 35 yards rolling out to his left a perfect placed ball on the sideline.
azjetfan Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:50 PM) Winters resigned to 4 year deal. $7 million per year
Chadforpresi... Icon : (16 January 2017 - 10:51 PM) Seems like a slightly steep price but overall cool with it, he's turned into a good player and is still young. Just needs to stay healthy.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (17 January 2017 - 04:12 PM) seems like a good deal. they were saying he could have earned over 8 million in the open market
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Where's Rob ?
vjdbbq Icon : (18 January 2017 - 08:12 AM) Is he looking for a new ass ?

Peter King said earlier on Cowherd's show, he believe if cowlishaw is right, @Revis24 will take the #Jets final offer, and report. 3 minutes ago via web


Jody Mac says, Cowlishaw's source is getting his INFO from the REVIS side, NOT #JETS. Very Good if you ask me. 4 minutes ago via web


best part of the interview for me and #Jets fans, 8.5-9 on a scale of 10 saying he's signing. 5 minutes ago via web


Says hes "potentially wrong" on the date, DOESNT think he is. sticking strong if you ask me...being sure as possible without Guaranteeing. 5 minutes ago via web

saying "Guaranteed Money, is going to be HIGHER, then what people say" wow. 8 minutes ago via web


To wrap it up ... i think @Revis24 takes the latest contract offer.. hasnt told team, @TimCowlishaw 's source is Revis related. 2 minutes ago via web

[indent]Tim Cowlishaw ESPN Interview: Basically to sum it up, he remains confident in his source and still believes the deal will happen on Wednesday. He wasn’t looking for the information but when he came across it, he confirmed it with his source, who “has always been correct.” Cowlishaw heavily implied that the information came from somebody on the Revis’ side of the negotiations. On a scale of 0 – 10, Cowlishaw put his confidence in his source at 8.5 to a 9. “This person is not going to lie or likely to be misled.” However, he seemed to protect himself slightly by saying he knows a new deal is coming, but there is small chance it could happen on a different day than Wednesday.

So if he plays against the skins they will throw at him so he can take 3 ints and keep the Revis island empty.

We don't really know much about Tim Cowlishaw of the Dallas Morning News. He's likable on ESPN's Around The Horn -- or, perhaps more accurately, he's the least unlikable of the majority of the shouting heads who appear on the show, including one guy who likely did some shouting over the weekend from the wrong side of reinforced glass in L.A.

Cowlishaw's name hit the national NFL radar on Sunday afternoon, when he saw fit to inject himself into the Darrelle Revis holdout, "reporting" in shoulder-shrugging fashion on his Twitter page that a deal will be announced, "probably Wednesday." He then added the perfunctory "[y]ou heard it here first," and tipped his hat to "Inside information!"

The unconventional "report" triggered an avalanche of contradictions. Though Cowlishaw brushed off the efforts to debunk his report as the predictable machinations of beat writers, he overlooks the fact that a much broader collection of national figures also have said, based on "Inside information!", that Cowlishaw's report was and is wrong, including ESPN's Adam Schefter, ESPN's Chris Mortensen, NBC's Andrea Kremer, and SI.com's Peter King. Even certain Internet hacks got in on the "Revis and the Jets aren't close" routine.

Through it all, we learned (and others have since confirmed), that the Jets are making substantial progress with center Nick Mangold on a long-term deal. With a tree-killing written document that we've heard will consume 70 pages or more when finished the current focal point of the team's efforts, it seems unlikely that G.M. Mike Tannenbaum would be trying to spin two multi-million-dollar plates at the same time, especially since all indications are that the Jets and Revis have many significant hurdles to overcome.

Undaunted by the denials, Cowlishaw has reiterated his report in an item on the DMN web site. But, with all due respect and discretion to Cowlishaw, his online item seems to have less to do with putting meat on the bone and more to do with: (1) explaining the circumstance of his original report; (2) echoing the notion that he expects Jets beat writers to disagree, while still ignoring the multiple national writers who have agreed with the disagreement; (3) bemoaning the self-created disruption to his "day off" (what in the hell is a "day off," anyway?); and (4) providing himself with an escape hatch if/when he ends up being wrong.

"I wasn't trying to suggest there's a deal-breaker involved, but who knows?" Cowlishaw writes of his use of the term "probably" before "Wednesday." He adds: "Things of that nature happen all the time."

Here's something doesn't happen all the time. The principals involved in a contentious and newsworthy situation, when pursued aggressively by a flood of media members who are trying desperately to confirm or deny a controversial report, don't tell on an off-the-record basis rampant and repeated lies with straight faces regarding the status of the contentious and newsworthy situation. Though we can't and won't disclose our sources, it hardly takes a forensic scientist to realize that, at some point in the day on Sunday, someone with direct knowledge of the situation, whether aligned with the team or the player, said on a "don't quote me" basis that Cowlishaw's report is wrong. There's simply no way that so many local and national people would be openly disputing the report if folks who know what's going on weren't disputing the report with an express request for anonymity.

It's not impossible that so many folks would be jeopardizing their own credibility by telling off-the-record falsehoods to people who buy their ink by the truckload, but it would be largely unprecedented, even in the truth-challenged world of pro football.

Sure, maybe the Jets and Revis have decided as part of their code of silence that they'll jointly spring the announcement on the world via a "special announcement" at the start of Wednesday night's edition of HBO's Hard Knocks, perhaps even with a live broadcast of the signing ceremony. But if that's what's happening, more than one guy would inevitably find out about it -- and once word of it got out at least one "source with knowledge of the situation" would do something other than lie through his teeth.

So we remain confident that nothing currently is happening between the Jets and Revis, and that if anything goes down in the short term it will be coincidental to Cowlishaw's report. We think his source -- who by all appearances isn't one of the principals but who is "in the loop" on matters of this nature -- misread the tea leaves, and mistook Mangold for Revis. So when it doesn't happen between Revis and the Jets, Cowlishaw will reiterate his "[t]hings of this nature happen all the time" explanation, possibly with a twist of "once I reported it the turtle pulled his head back into the shell."

Meanwhile, we don't fault Cowlishaw for laying the foundation for an eventual retreat. Since he openly believes that it's normal and acceptable for beat writers to "shoot down" stories like this even if they're accurate, Cowlishaw probably also believes it's normal and acceptable to swing the bat, miss the ball, and then blame the pitcher.

Finally, if Cowlishaw connects, the same people who were burning up the phone lines on Sunday in an effort to follow up on Cowlishaw's report will be calling their sources again. This time, the question marks will be replaced with exclamation points -- and the exclamation points will be following some of the language heard routinely on Hard Knocks.

[quote]Darrelle Revis-DB- Jets Aug. 23 - 3:23 pm et


Citing NFL sources, Newsday's Bob Glauber reports that Darrelle Revis is "demanding" $162 million over 10 years from the Jets.
The Jets are reportedly offering as much as $122 million over 10 years. None of these figures mean much without the guaranteed money, but Revis' demands are ridiculous if true. While he's certainly outplayed his rookie contract, he still has three years left on that deal. Based on info from his own sources, Glauber isn't buying Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw's report that a deal is close.[/quote]

Who to believe? Hmmm.....

162 million over 10 years? I pray to God that's not what the team gives in and pays him. I dont care how good he is. He's not worth that kind of money.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

162 means nothing. doesn't mean he'll get it all. If we did i'm sure tanny would make it backloaded into the final 4 years then cut him after 6 years when he's 30

Revis wants his money up front in the form of guaranteed bonuses. Backloading wont happen with this contract.

[size="5"]Cowlishaw: Source says New York Jets' Darrelle Revis will sign this week[/size]

[size="2"]09:50 AM CDT on Monday, August 23, 2010[/size]
[size="2"]
Column by TIM COWLISHAW / The Dallas Morning News[/size]

[size="4"]On Sunday, I had no column scheduled to write for The Dallas Morning News. I didn't need to overdose on sports in order to get ready for a week of Around the Horn on ESPN because the show is on vacation all week.

Other than Skype-ing my daughter for her 19th birthday and taking my son to the driving range, I didn't have any grand plans. The only thing I was going to "tweet" about was how much I liked the first 75-80 pages of a novel called Shadow of the Wind.

My quiet day ended when I obtained some information early in the afternoon about Darrelle Revis, the Jets' fabulous cornerback who has been holding out from camp in order to get a new contract.

The source of information was good, someone I have used before. Beyond that, I won't go into further details.

Originally I was told the signing would be "probably Wednesday or Saturday." That seemed strange that there would be a possible range of three days in the situation.

But when I found out one other aspect of the story that made me believe it had to be true, Wednesday made a lot more sense than Saturday. Since the 140-character nature of Twitter doesn't lend itself to expanding on one's thoughts, I just typed "probably Wednesday."

Even limiting myself to that, "probably Wednesday" sounded weird, like I was hedging my bets. I wasn't trying to suggest there's a deal-breaker involved, but who knows? Things of that nature happen all the time. Still, I felt like "probably Wednesday" was the most accurate information I could provide at the time.

Once that one tweet was out there, my chances of getting much of the day off were shot (although I did manage to squeeze in three games at Top Golf with Ben and I didn't forget to skype Rachel).

It didn't surprise me that my information was getting shot down right and left by those covering the Jets. As a beat writer covering the Cowboys for six years, I did a lot of "shooting down" and this was in the early days of ESPN and long before the world was wired and Twitter came along.

I talked to ESPN's Chris Mortensen and the New York Daily News' Gary Myers on the phone, a couple of guys I have known for 20 years or more. I exchanged texts or, in some cases, tweets with others I have had long relationships with.

They were supportive if curious as to how this information was coming from a Dallas-based general columnist. Understandably curious.

As for those who said I was making it up to get more followers: Does that sound like a good thing to do? I've worked for The Dallas Morning News for more than 20 years, ESPN for another seven. Is just making stuff up and having no clue about it a big part of my history?

Getting predictions wrong, yeah, I've done that two or three times. Two or three thousand times, I mean.

Throwing stuff against the wall with no idea whether or not it might stick? Not a real good way to maintain any shred of credibility.

The messages coming in from Jets' fans were pretty much non-stop and the only surprising thing about any of that was how many of them seemed to suggest they didn't think Revis would sign until well into the season, if at all.

How often does that happen? How often does that work?

Emmitt Smith got extra guaranteed money by sitting two games in 1993. But that was the league MVP-to-be and he had to get somewhat lucky in rolling the dice that the Cowboys would go 0-2 to Washington and Buffalo and that Coach Jimmy Johnson would go so crazy about it that Jerry Jones would have no choice but to cave in.

As great a player as Revis is, that's a big gamble to take.

Regardless, it does not appear that he is going to roll those dice. All signs indicate that the Revis saga, a major storyline for HBO's "Hard Knocks'' special on the Jets, ends this week.

And then I can tweet more about "Shadow of the Wind" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon ... even if it doesn't quite reach the same audience that Darrelle Revis does.[/size] [/quote]

This is really getting interesting.

Bob Glauber of Newsday writes that, while Darrelle Revis continues to hold out in an act of defiance, the Jets have been quietly handing out large sums of money to players considered almost as important to their long-term success.

First, tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson signed a 6-year, $60 million contract extension with little fanfare. Then reports surfaced on Sunday claiming an agreement with Revis was imminent. Turns out it is center Nick Mangold who is on the verge of cashing in.

A league source familiar with the Jets ' situation confirmed to Newsday last night that a long-term extension for Mangold was imminent. News of it was first reported by Profootballtalk.com. It is expected to at least equal the five-year, $37.5-million deal signed last year by Rams center Jason Brown .

And Revis? Tick, tick, tick. He seems to be stuck on Revis island.

There was a buzz late Sunday afternoon when Dallas Morning News columnist Tim Cowlishaw, a regular panelist on ESPN 's "Around the Horn," wrote on his Twitter account that the Jets and Revis will announce an agreement as early as Wednesday. But a league source said late Sunday the report was inaccurate, There seems to be little progress in the Revis negotiations.

It make you wonder if Revis is in danger of overplaying his hand. The Jets with Revis are a world-class defense but Jets without Revis are still oustanding. With three years left on his contract and the Jets offering as much as $122 million dollars over 10 years, he is demanding $162 million according to lrague sources.

With that $40 million dollar chasm showing no signs of closing the Jets have instead done the next-best thing by signing the other young cornerstones of their franchise to deals that are more reasonable.

Revis has little leverage in an unpopular holdout. The choice is coming down to his accepting a more reasonable deal or sit out the season , forfeiting his current contract which pays him $21 million over the next three years. It is understandable that Revis is frustrated with arookie contract that pays him only $1 million in salary this season, making him by far the league's most underpaid elite quarterback. If he holds out during the season and there is a lockout in 2011, that's two years without a paycheck.. Even a million dollar athlete can't afford that.

So Ferguson and Mangold now have long-term security while Revis continues to9 play a dangerous game of chicken with a team willing to play hardball. With three years left on his rookie deal, Revis has few options and should take the money offered now.

Revis is going to play chicken and he's going to get hit by a Jet and dropped off and stranded alone on Revis Island.

well like it has been said before, revis is risking not only not getting paid for this season, but in the event of a lock out next season, he will have gone 2 seasons without a pay check. I just can't see the guy passing on a 120+ million deal with a lockout coming. I don't want to see the jets give this guy 160 mill, 120 is already a rather steep price for a CB, but revis is playing with a loaded gun. You think Revis will get even close to a 120 million deal if he hasn't played football in 2 seasons? Revis will be the highest paid CB once nnamdi's contract expires so I don't see what the big deal here is, I mean, being the first 100 million dollar corner back isn't such a bad thing is it?

I'd love to see the guy signed by Wednesday but I just don't feel its gonna happen, but I do expect to see him on the field when we play the ravens on opening Monday night.

Ur post makes the most logical sense in this entire revis fiasco. Good job buddy. He will not risk two yrs of no money. Anf if he does, no ones gonna pay him close to 100mil, let alone 25mil. He's gotta sign eventually, y not wednesday?
