Chaos Icon : (14 February 2015 - 04:00 PM) no rush to cut them now
Chaos Icon : (14 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) they both cost 125k to keep now and are not guaranteed a roster spot. they can get cap savings by removing them later
Chaos Icon : (14 February 2015 - 04:01 PM) 125k each. 250k total.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 February 2015 - 05:19 PM) I think they should keep Babin, he was actually our best pass rusher last season despite 2 sacks. He had a lot of QB pressures in limited snaps.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (14 February 2015 - 05:20 PM) There are some good edge rushers available in FA, I hope we sign one

ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 February 2015 - 11:23 PM) When the hell will the JETS get it that Pace SUCKS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 February 2015 - 11:23 PM) Babin being brought back isn't a big deal but Pace really?
azjetfan Icon : (16 February 2015 - 12:43 AM) There is no guarantee either will be on the roster opening day. This gives the Jets the most options in FA and the draft. For once I would love to see Jet fans not jump before the need
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 February 2015 - 12:39 PM) I'd cut Pace, we easily can upgrade over him in FA
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (16 February 2015 - 12:40 PM) Babin I'd keep , he had more QB pressures in way less snaps than Pace. And is cheap.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (17 February 2015 - 11:27 PM) its time to bring this back..........

HarlemHxC814 Icon : (18 February 2015 - 06:25 PM) Please no
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (19 February 2015 - 12:28 PM) Reports say Jets to go hard after CJ Spiller. Bring him aboard, he'll be a good signing. Was a stud in Chan's offense and RBs don't cost much
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 February 2015 - 12:09 PM) Saw that the Bills are meeting with Spiller and may sign him before FA.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (20 February 2015 - 12:10 PM) if that happens, I think the Jets should go after Shane Vereen. Nice pass catching option out of the backfield, only 25.
Smedsthejet Icon : (20 February 2015 - 04:06 PM) Think Vereen would be a great option...I thought he was one of their best and most valuable performers during the playoffs and we need a back who can contribute in the passing game as well. Jets have been missing that piece since LT retired
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 February 2015 - 01:41 PM) Mariota ran a 4.52
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (21 February 2015 - 01:41 PM) Fastest for a QB since RG3

2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:54 PM) @RapSheet: The #Packers released LB AJ Hawk, their former first-round pick. It saves them $3.5M this year, which comes off their cap
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:13 PM) @AdamSchefter 58s59 seconds ago
Jaguars expected to hire former Jets GM John Idzik as a consultant, per source.
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:52 PM) AJ Hawk getting cut means that the Packers are going to try real hard to lock up Cobb
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:52 PM) and the Lions released oft injured Reggie Bush
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:29 PM) The Packers had the cap space to lock up Cobb regardless
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:30 PM) But Bryan Bulaga is also a FA< so they have 2 important guys to re-sign. I think the OT is more important for Rodgers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) 22 days 21 hours 27 min till FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) If we get rid of Harvin, Kevin White looks like a nice replacement.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:06 PM) 6'3 runs a 4.35 and had elite production in college

The prank where two GMs unwittingly ended up talking to one another and dropping some free-agent conversation has taken a decidedly unfunny turn.

Back in March, Tampa Bay GM Mark Dominik and then-Buffalo GM Buddy Nix found themselves talking to one another, each thinking the other had called. And they began discussing some behind-the-scenes info on trades and players.

Turns out the two had been set up by two 20-year-old men from Massachusetts, Joshua Barber and Nicholas Kaiser. They called each GM, pretending to be the other, then conferenced the calls together and silently recorded them. Deadspin posted the recording, and we all had a little chuckle about it.

But even then, there were concerns about the legality of the whole endeavor. The league announced its intention to press forward with an investigation at the time. Yahoo! Sports' Martin Rogers first raised the possibility of severe charges, a possibility which has now come to pass. The men now have been charged with federal wiretapping violations, and must appear in court in Buffalo on June 4. They face up to five years in prison.

"The New York Penal Code protects individuals against actions such as this with statutes on eavesdropping and interception of communications," L.A.-based criminal defense attorney Christopher Blaylock told Yahoo! Sports. "Statutes such as these can be open to the interpretation of a court, but a strong case could be made here given that neither party consented to the recording or monitoring of the conversation."

It's pretty clear that this was a simple prank, but one that grew way out of hand.
