santana Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:10 PM) Who the hell is Bryce petty
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:20 PM) Tom Pettys brother
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) Jets should take Collins with one of their 7th rounders if there
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) He has more upside for a 7th rounder than anyone else
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:22 PM) He can start right away at RT
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:29 PM) He said he won't sign
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:32 PM) so he doesn't want to be drafted?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:33 PM) If Collins doesn't get drafted, he can't enter next years draft. He can only if he is drafted and sits out. So I guess he has to go undrafted
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) going undrafted makes the most sense for collins
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 03:41 PM) but for teams, drafting him and dealing with his holdout makes more sense
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:19 PM) Zac Stacy was traded to us for our 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) Jets also drafted a NT with our other 7th
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:21 PM) 6'4 330 DL who is very strong
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) zac stacy for a 7th
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:25 PM) well can't complain about that
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:29 PM) So we have 4 rbs now
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:31 PM) still would have rather taken a runner on collins but i can't complain with depth
V DidDy 210 Icon : (02 May 2015 - 04:32 PM) i mean they can't expect to carry 4 rb though no?
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:50 PM) Collins would have been a waste. He would not have signed. At least we have something to show for our pick. Worst case scenario is we trade or release one of our backs.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) I know it's hard to tell without seeing a win loss record yet but this regime seems really on point.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:56 PM) For the first time in my life I can say I feel comfortable with the people making the decisions.
azjetfan Icon : (02 May 2015 - 05:57 PM) I was close with Parcells but he seemed like a short term fixer and didn't care about the long term
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) SUCK FOR THE DUCK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 May 2015 - 06:57 PM) .......oh wait
santana Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:13 AM) Well that was a disappointment
Chadforpresi... Icon : (03 May 2015 - 01:24 AM) I like getting Stacy for our 7th rounder, assuming he can handle the fact he won't be a feature back (yikes)
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:31 AM) I like the trade, hes a quality back and adds more depth to our backfield
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) Macc has pretty much killed it this offseason
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:32 AM) He has turned this roster around, he has added talent and competition all over.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We still aren't great at QB, but our overall football team is good. We have a realistic shot at making a playoff run
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:33 AM) We may have the best defense in football. We have a great DL and secondary, that is gonna be tough on offenses when you can stop the run, pressure the QB, and blanket the receivers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:23 PM) ok now it's time for this team to take all this talent and do something anything below a 10-6 season will be a disappointment
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:24 PM) the only still glaring issue is QB
ganggreen2003 Icon : (03 May 2015 - 09:25 PM) we got the WR problem solved, we got probably one of the best Defenses in the game and we have addressed the OL but QB will still be the glaring issue
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 AM) jets cleaning house
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:57 PM) I'm excited about this year. Could be a good year for the Jets.
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:32 PM) weird how they cleaned house in the scouting department after such a successful draft and off-season so far
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:36 PM) I assume they didn't bring much to the table
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:41 PM) Have to clean the table
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) Fuck the rangers
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:08 PM) face off dominated holtby gtfo
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) La'el Collins is meeting with Rex Ryan tonight
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Today, 12:31 AM) FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH!
Chaos Icon : (Today, 05:41 AM) Damn that'd make up for the Bills not having a first rounder
azjetfan Icon : (Today, 10:59 AM) They didn't sign him yet. It's just a visit.

Jets Ready To Cut Scott/pace Cut Smith too & save 27.7 Million combined

NY Jets ready to cut

It seems the Jets can’t wait to say goodbye to Bart Scott.
Sources told the Daily News Thursday that Gang Green’s plan is to cut the loquacious linebacker, along with Calvin Pace — another mainstay of the linebacking corps — and offensive tackle Jason Smith in the coming weeks before free agency begins March 12. The moves would save the Jets $27.7 million in cap space for next season.
Scott has been the face and mouth of the Jets defense since 2009, and Gang Green would save $7.2 million if he is released. Pace, a Jet since 2008 and in the final year of his contract, would represent $8.6 million in cap savings, and Smith would save the team $12 million, bringing Gang Green under the expected 2013 cap of $121.1 million.
In addition, the Jets will carry over $3.4 million of unused cap space from the 2012 season on top of the expected $121.1 figure.
Much has been made of the Jets’ difficult salary-cap situation. The damage left by former general manager Mike Tannenbaum undoubtedly put the Jets in a poor situation but not an unfixable one — these expected cuts would alleviate much of the cap pressure that new GM John Idzik faces.
Scott signed a six-year, $48 million deal in February of 2009 to follow Rex Ryan, his defensive coordinator in Baltimore, to the Jets. Scott may be remembered by Jets fans more for his fiery personality than his play.
The inside linebacker personified the Jets’ playoff runs in 2010-11 with his “can’t wait” comment on national television following Gang Green’s stunning 28-21 playoff victory over the Patriots, but also had his fair share of gaffes, too.
Following the Jets’ disappointing 2011 season, Scott refused to talk to the media, then flipped off photographers, saying, “Get that out of my f------ face,” for which he earned a $10,000 fine from the league.

Scott’s war with the media continued last season when he threatened Dan Leberfeld of Jets Confidential during an open locker-room session in September. The reporter had tried to snap a photo of Scott — who had recently declared a media boycott — as he was leaving the locker room while the linebacker was talking with another reporter. “I’ll smack the s--- out of you,” Scott yelled at him. “And I’m going to sue you,” Leberfeld fired back. Jets media relations director Bruce Speight and another member of the PR staff had to separate the two.
Then, this past Thanksgiving night, after the Jets were pummeled by the Pats, Scott ripped fans who had heckled the team at halftime.
“At the end of the day, if you made it to be able to put an NFL uniform on, then you are one of the best athletes in the world,” Scott told The News. “The person yelling at you probably was picked last in dodge ball all through high school.
“So do you care about the opinion of them? No.”
Scott averaged 74.8 tackles per year (54 solo) in his four seasons with the Jets, but he had only 60 total tackles (36 solo) this past season.
Though both linebackers are 32, Scott is approaching the twilight of his career while Pace is still a useful commodity — just not at his current price tag. For Pace, there will likely be other suitors willing to offer more than the Jets, who are strapped due to their cap situation.
The changing of the guard at linebacker means 2012 third-round pick DeMario Davis will replace Scott, pairing up with David Harris at inside linebacker.
The Jets may look to replace Pace via the draft. One can certainly imagine the Jets filling the hole at outside linebacker with their first-round pick (No. 9). However, that would mean the Jets will have drafted a defensive player with their first pick for the fourth straight season, and there are plenty of other areas that need to be addressed.
NEW LB COACH: The Jets hired Brian VanGorder as linebackers coach. VanGorder was the Falcons’ defensive coordinator from 2008-2011 and Auburn’s defensive coordinator last season. He replaces Bob Sutton, who left to become the Chiefs’ defensive coordinator. Also, the Jets confirmed a Daily News report that Bobby April III has been hired as a quality control coach for defense, a position he has held with the Eagles for the past two seasons.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

The team could also save another 4.75 million by converting Holmes guaranteed money into a bonus, and another just about 7 million by cutting Eric Smith & Pouha.

Total savings are just about 29 million by the 5 cuts & converting Holmes money. Eat the just under 1.5 million by trading Revis & save more than 15 million in 2014.
