azjetfan Icon : (11 June 2015 - 07:36 PM) Im not against it but it would have to be a short term deal
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

Scotty McKnight is wearing No. 15 for the Jets, but his jersey might as well be a bull’s-eye.

McKnight, a seventh-round draft pick by the Jets, faces the torment all rookies do in training camp, but the wide receiver is an even bigger target because he is close friends with quarterback Mark Sanchez. Many of the Jets players knew McKnight before he joined the team, making him an easy mark.

Like everything in 2011, the jokes have moved into the world of social media, where Jets players love to poke fun at “smcknight21” on Twitter.

“Just found out that @Mark_Sanchez got a massage on our day off, the bad thing is that @smcknight21 was the masseuse,” Dustin Keller posted.

McKnight knew what he was facing when the Jets drafted him. He has spent each of the past two Decembers in New Jersey with Sanchez while on winter break from college at Colorado.

“He’s the best friend of one of our teammates and we all know him,” Keller said this week. “We know we can give it to him better than anyone else.”

McKnight has accepted his lot, and said Keller and center Nick Mangold are the biggest culprits. Mangold caught McKnight taking a nap in the trainer’s room this week, and soon it was on the Internet for the world to see.

“Lazy mcbones aka @smcknight21” Mangold wrote along with a photo of a sleeping McKnight.

“In between meetings a guy tries to catch a 10-minute nap while he gets therapy and Nick puts it on Twitter,” McKnight said. “People are calling me and texting me, like, you took a nap today at practice. It was on some gossip website. I knew that coming in I was going to be the target because guys know me a little bit more.”

Mangold may win the award for the most creative use of Twitter to haze McKnight. He found a high school photo of McKnight with long hair and inserted the picture over Peter Brady’s head in The Brady Bunch.

“I’ve known Scotty since Mark has been here,” Mangold said. “Now ... Scotty is in the building for a purpose and not just hanging around. ... He’s doing a heck of a job. He’s got some speed. He’s real smart.”

While McKnight accepts the teasing from teammates, he is more sensitive to the perception people have outside of the Jets that he was drafted only because he and Sanchez have known each other since their Pop Warner days in Southern California.

As soon as the Jets drafted McKnight with the 227th pick overall, he heard the remarks he was Sanchez’s pick.

“If anything, I would use it as motivation,” McKnight said. “I think guys on the team know that I belong here. It’s not like no other team was talking to me and then the Jets came over to me and said, here, we’ll give you a favor. I think people saw what a business this NFL is with the lockout, and for people to realistically think that an organization would just give away a pick for a player they didn’t think they could help them in any phase of the game, I think that just doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”

McKnight is learning about life as a pro, the good and bad. When McKnight signed his contract, he posted on Twitter how excited he was to officially be a Jet. It didn’t take long for Mangold to reply, “@smcknight21 ... now you can ‘officially’ go get me some coffee, rook.”
