MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:45 PM) Street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 01:47 PM) I really don't like Devin Smith he cost us 2 games last season with his hands of stone
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) he's a rookie
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i'm more concerned we really don't have a slot WR. all of our guys are outside guys
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) i wonder if amaro is gonna be a big slit guy and blocker for us
Jetsfan115 Icon : (01 June 2016 - 04:27 PM) slot
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 09:22 PM) Sources told NY daily news.Fitzpatrick is about to sign 1 year deal
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 June 2016 - 10:06 PM) We didn't have a slot WR last year also. I do Amaro steps up I really do like him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (02 June 2016 - 09:46 AM) Ok so the jets won't take the deal. My question is why?? 1 year 12 million when they are already offering him 12 million in his first year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) 2 reasons, 1st off for salary cap relief this year. we have no cap room this year but plenty next year. a multi year deal and backload the contract and 2, why pay a guy 12 mil for 1 year with no guarentee and go thorugh this again
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:24 PM) fitz said he'd take a 1 year deal but jets don't want that
Jetsfan115 Icon : (02 June 2016 - 01:25 PM) they should offer him a 3 years for 30 mil. 12 this year (half in the signing bonus for cap relief) 10 mil next year and 8 mil the 3rd year. 1st 2 years guarenteed (22 mil)
RetireChrebet Icon : (03 June 2016 - 03:37 AM) You know your fucked when the biggest offseason story is can we convince a journeyman QB whom singlehandedly threw us out of the playoffs last year to sign a deal worth way more than his actual value!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 09:59 AM) Ok jets brothers I need fantasy football help. Who should I keep in my keepers league. We have to decide by July
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:00 AM) Should I keep Cam Gurley or Bell?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Cam had a monster year last year and in our league it's 6 points per PassTd and cam is getting his best WR back.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:01 AM) Gurley was a monster last year as a rookie
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:03 AM) Bell missed most of the year with a injury but it's also a PPR league. In only 6 games last year he =100 points
MikeGangGree... Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:04 AM) Cam also had 45 total TDs last year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) I'd keep bell
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) there are maybe like 5 #1 fantasy RBs at best and you need to start at least 2
Jetsfan115 Icon : (03 June 2016 - 10:50 AM) QBs are easier to find. I had cam in 2 leagues and drafted him way late. RBs are impossible to find late
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) FIRE FITZPATRICK
MikeGangGree... Icon : (04 June 2016 - 07:53 PM) That Damn dirty street thug
MikeGangGree... Icon : (05 June 2016 - 09:43 PM) In other news the NBA finals is like A NFL team Playing a college football team.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (06 June 2016 - 11:23 AM) line is in. jets are favorites for 5 games, pick for 2, and underdog for 9
MikeGangGree... Icon : (08 June 2016 - 04:56 PM) We play better as a underdog
santana Icon : (12 June 2016 - 03:54 PM) JETS JETS JETS
santana Icon : (13 June 2016 - 09:28 AM) Update on the #Jets situation with Ryan Fitzpatrick: Nothing. … Just nothing. Doesn't seem like things will change heading into minicamp.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (13 June 2016 - 10:39 AM) yeah every day i check for an update and every day, nothing

Jets acquire RB Chris Ivory

Five days after the Darrelle Revis blockbuster, the New York Jets continued their deal-making Friday night, acquiring running back Chris Ivory from the New Orleans Saints for a fourth-round pick (No. 106 overall).

The Jets were looking for a big back to replace Shonn Greene, who signed with the Tennessee Titans. Ivory was effective in a limited role with the Saints, but he became the odd man out in a crowded backfield.

The Jets are expected to sign Ivory to a long-term contract, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

"He's a very physical, violent runner," Jets general manager John Idzik said. "He's got size, he's got speed. He runs with attitude, he plays with attitude."

Ivory joins Mike Goodson (signed last month from the Oakland Raiders), Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight in the Jets' nondescript backfield. Based on the current personnel, this will be the first time since 1994 the Jets enter a season without a 1,000-yard rusher on their roster.

The trade means it's unlikely the Jets will select a running back in the draft.

"It's an opportunity for me to really get the carries that I deserve," Ivory told NOLA.com on Friday night. "I put the work in every day and every week. I just feel like it's my time. ... I feel like I can go out there and do some great things with the opportunities I'll be given, and I know I'm going to make the most of it. With every little glimpse I had in New Orleans, I did great things. If I'm getting more than six and seven carries a game, the sky is the limit for me.

"I can do some great things and put up some crazy numbers in New York."

Ivory signed his one-year, $2 million tender last Friday, the final day of restricted free agency, to set the stage for the trade. He visited with the Jets 13 days ago, but they never had any intention of signing him to an offer sheet and surrendering the required compensation -- a second-round pick.

Ivory was the Saints' leading rusher in 2010 with 716 yards, but he has been plagued by injuries, and slipped to fourth on the depth chart behind Mark Ingram, Pierre Thomas and Darren Sproles.

The Saints had only five draft choices -- they were docked a second-rounder in the bounty scandal -- so they were motivated to acquire additional picks. Ivory (6-foot, 222 pounds) has only 256 career carries, but he has been effective in a limited role. He has rushed for 1,307 yards and a 5.1 yards-per-carry average.

Late Friday night, the Jets added another veteran on offense, agreeing to terms with former Detroit Lions guard Stephen Peterman, a league source confirmed. It's a one-year contract. Terms weren't immediately available.

Peterman, who recently visited with the Jets, has 86 career starts, including every game over the last three seasons. He will compete with Willie Colon, Vladimir Ducasse and rookie Brian Winters, chosen Friday night in the third round.
