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.

Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:17 PM) good thing we drafted williams. thats why you take BPA
jets4life Icon : (Yesterday, 07:54 PM) Mike Freeman of the B/R has spoken to three NFL sources who all said they think Jets DE Sheldon Richardson Will Never Play Another Down In The Nfl following this arrest.

Freeman’s sources all pointed to the 12-year child and the loaded handgun in the car as two major concerns regarding the incident.
We’ll have more details regarding Richardson as the news is available.

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.
