Jetsman05 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 11:17 AM) I picture Rob and 115 as real life friends
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 04:01 PM) Holmes can still play, problem is that hes also a cancer. He wore out his welcome with the Jets
ganggreen2003 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 08:23 PM) did Hill get cut?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:00 PM) Haven't seen anything yet
MikeGangGree... Icon : (29 August 2014 - 09:06 PM) Whos ready for the season!!? WOOOOO
azjetfan Icon : (30 August 2014 - 11:54 AM) Hill has been cut
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 August 2014 - 01:24 PM) Who wants to take bets he ends up in NE
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:18 PM) We'll I guess you guys are fools then in thinking im a fool for being concerned. Do any of you even know that in 2013 the Jets gave up the most passing yards in the franchise since 1986? And our secondary right now is worse than last year right now. To not be concerned is utterly foolish.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:19 PM) Unless our d-line has a monstrous year odds are the team will be eaten up in the pass. Every team will game plan to exploit the pass this year.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 02:56 PM) Patterson got cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:24 PM) Patterson must have been a huge cancer to get cut
flood555 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:26 PM) is there a midseason draft? we need a DB!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) Our week 1 starting CBs will be Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls... wow
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 03:58 PM) interesting that Simms and Boyd were released
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 04:00 PM) No more McIntyre
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:20 PM) Pretty sure some of these cuts like Simms and McIntyre were made for removing some more cap space to try to find some decent corners and maybe another reliable wr. Possibly get some players cheap. I'd say the current 53 roster will change a good bit in the next week.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:23 PM) I just hope Geno doesn't get hurt or we are horse f*cked. Vick sure as hell can't stay healthy for a full season. I guess the FO could also be think of picking up an old vet cut as 3rd qb. Simms is ok but I'd never trust him to win a regular season game if he was put in.
ROBJETS Icon : (30 August 2014 - 05:25 PM) Anyway it's going yo be an interesting week.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:18 PM) I doubt it was about freeing up money, considering we are way under. Like more than $20 mil, way more than enough to find some vet minimum CB
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 August 2014 - 10:19 PM) it's more about the roster numbers. McIntyre was replaced by rookies. IK showed flashes when he played
bleedsgreen Icon : (31 August 2014 - 08:34 AM) McIntyre is a shock to me he was a solid backup and made some big plays
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) 1 week till we are 1-0
ganggreen2003 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 04:44 PM) we need to annihilate the GAYders
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:28 PM) We claimed McFadden from the Browns. Knows the system should be able to contribute right away
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:29 PM) Watching the Browns game now. Playing all three CB spots. Looks OK. A little grabby although he has not been called for it
azjetfan Icon : (31 August 2014 - 05:30 PM) Might be a little aggressive and get burnt over top
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (31 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 06:58 AM) ^^^ agreed
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 12:25 PM) all the admins on this page should be fired
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 12:25 PM) for being assclowns
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 04:17 PM) The Jets are fucked at CB, signing some bums now. We need Milliner to get healthy
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 September 2014 - 04:20 PM) We have signed CB Phillip Adams
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 05:55 PM) The Gayders are playing Derek Carr against the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 05:55 PM) our D Line better put him in a WORLD OF PAIN
MikeGangGree... Icon : (01 September 2014 - 06:11 PM) Rookie QB in our house...Rex do your thing!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 09:56 PM) with Antonio Allen and Darrin Walls as our starting CBs
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 10:00 PM) our offense should be better than last year, Geno looks more comfortable
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (01 September 2014 - 10:03 PM) The Jets released Jeremiah George and Ellis Lankster, hopefully George finds his way to the PS. AJ Edds was re-signed
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:08 AM) Fire the admins!
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 11:08 AM) Over paid talents
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:55 PM) i get paid too much yo
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:52 PM) Hill was signed to the Panthers practice squad, lol @ 115
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:49 PM) At least the CHEATriots didn't sign him

Jay-Zís Roc Nation agency makes pitch to represent Jets QB Geno Smith

Jay-Z's agency wants to represent Geno Smith (Getty Images)
Roc Nation, the new sports representation agency owned by Jay-Z, was among a handful of agencies that made pitches this week to represent New York Jets second-round quarterback Geno Smith, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com reports.
Smith was represented by Select Sports Group, but terminated that agreement after the 2013 NFL draft. Smith reportedly expected to be selected in the first-round of the draft and, after not hearing his name called among the first 32 picks, briefly considered not returning to the green room at Radio City Music Hall for Round 2. Smith did return and was selected by the Jets with the No. 39 overall pick in the draft.
Jay-Z is not a certified NFLPA agent, therefore, under NFLPA rules, he is not allowed to recruit, or serve as a "runner" for, the unidentified NFLPA certified agent that the Jay-Z-owned agency currently employs. Roc Nation has teamed with powerhouse agency CAA Football, but according to PFT's report, CAA was not involved in the recruiting process of Smith, either.
The 2011 collective bargaining agreement has removed most of the negotiable items from the rookie signing process. Based on documents distributed to certified agents that have been obtained by "Shutdown Corner", Smith will receive a maximum signing bonus of $2,030,620 and a base salary of $405,000 in 2013. With very little of the rookie contract to be negotiated, Smith is likely looking for an agency that can increase his earnings outside of football and who is willing to take far less than three percent (the maximum percentage allowed by the NFLPA) on Smith's football earnings.
According to PFT, the other agencies that made pitches to Smith were Joel Segal of Lagardere Football, Rick Smith of Priority Sports, Eugene Parker of Relativity Sports, and Fletcher Smith of Blueprint Sports Group. Athletes First, whose group of agents represent 20 percent (25 of 125) of the active quarterbacks in the NFL, did not make a pitch for Smith. That should not come as a surprise as one of the 125 quarterbacks that Athlete's First represents is current Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.
