Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 06:20 AM) I ravedddd about him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 08:26 AM) he was the guy I wanted most out of the draft. I knew we had no shot at Watkins or Evans.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 08:59 AM) Pretty sure i remember talking to you about him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 09:33 AM) yeah we talked about him, I remember you loved him too. When I started paying attention to potential draft guys he was the guy I wanted most with our 1st round pick. This was before he was talked about as a legit first rounder, then he skyrocketed up the boards and ended up going too high for us.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 09:37 AM) I was and am huge on Jarvis Landry too
santana Icon : (Today, 11:04 AM) I knew about odell since grade school
Jetsman05 Icon : (Today, 11:12 AM) You don't follow football.

[b]Jets cut QB Kevin O'Connell[/b]
By Rich Cimini
ESPNNewYork.com

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- One day after saying Kellen Clemens has a "strong chance" of making the New York Jets' roster, Rex Ryan all but handed the No. 3 quarterback job to Clemens Tuesday, releasing Kevin O'Connell.

Clemens and O'Connell competed for the third-string job, behind starter Mark Sanchez and backup Mark Brunell. O'Connell played poorly in the preseason, completing only eight of 16 passes for 70 yards with two interceptions and no touchdowns.

The Jets acquired O'Connell last preseason from the Detroit Lions for a conditional draft pick, which became a seventh-round pick in the 2011 draft. The Jets had a fairly high draft grade on O'Connell, a third-round pick of the New England Patriots in 2008, but they were disappointed that he never developed as hoped. Scouts say the 6-foot-5, 225-pound O'Connell has the physical tools for the position, but lacks the necessary intangibles.

Clemens appeared to be on shaky ground as far back as the spring, when the Jets put him on the trading block. When they signed Brunell before the start of camp, it looked like Clemens was a goner.

In last week's episode of "Hard Knocks," in a scene that reveals the Jets' depth chart, Clemens' name appears with an "X" next to it -- seemingly an indication he was in jeopardy of being released.

Barring the unexpected, Clemens isn't going anywhere, although his $1.1 million salary -- high for a No. 3 quarterback -- could become an issue. The Jets may try to renegotiate his contract.

The Jets still have Erik Ainge, but he was placed on the non-football injury list at the start of camp. At the time, Ainge was undergoing drug counseling.

Clemens is the best back up we have. Cutting Clemens would just be retarded.

I'm happy about this. o'connel is crap and since its uncapped and he's only on a 1 year deal might as well pay him.
