Posted 5 May 2013Davis & Harris Cut after arrest
Jets defensive end Claude Davis and defensive back Cliff Harris were arrested at 9:21 p.m. on the night of April 29 and charged with possession of marijuana, according to the Morristown Police Department.
The two players, both on futures deals, were released from custody after being served with a summons complaint.
A day later, the Jets released the players from their contracts.
The two players were traveling with Daniel Godfrey, 21, who was also in possession of a loaded handgun that was sitting in the seat pocket directly in front of him. Drug paraphernalia was discovered in the back seat of the car, which led officers to believe there was intent to distribute the drugs.
Davis, 23, a former standout at South Florida, and Harris, 22, who played at Oregon and was undrafted, were in the driver's seat and front passenger's seat, respectively, of a 2013 Chevy Tahoe when an officer came upon the parked car and noticed the interior was filled with smoke.
Posted 26 Apr 2013Considering that this draft class is classified as one NFL GM calls the "worst in a decade", how do you all feel about how our boys have done so far? I know it's still early as we're only finishing round 3 (round 4 for us unless we make another move), but I'd still like to hear opinions.
I know one person thinks Idzik basically fvcked us, but I personally feel like we're having a damn good year. Addressing areas of need including pass rush by grabbing Richardson which should move Coples outside and because Richardson gets a nice interior push. We've upgraded at QB, RB, replaced the CB, OG/RT. Looking pretty damn good so far if you ask me.
Posted 14 Apr 2013Jets Still Owe Denver For Tebow
You might be wondering why the Jets still haven't released quarterback Tim Tebow. Hardly anybody expects him to have any kind of relevant role for the team this year, and you probably would be hard-pressed to find anybody who believes that he'll even be around by Week 1 of the 2013 season.
But still, Tebow is hanging out, readying himself for the beginning of offseason workouts and proclaiming he's going to have a great attitude about it all.
But why? Why haven't the Jets cut him yet in favor of Mark Sanchez, David Garrard and Greg McElroy? Why do they continue to keep around one of the most controversial players in the league who has almost no chance of contributing to the team?
Money, of course.
As recounted by the Denver Post, the Jets still owe the Broncos $1.53 million from the 2012 trade that brought Tebow from Denver to New York, and the Jets reportedly are still trying to trade Tebow in an effort to get anything for him.
More from the Post about the trade that almost wasn't and why the Jets still owe the Broncos:
Tebow's officially listed salary for 2013 is $2.58 million, but he is to collect only $1.055 million. The Jets don't have to pay this if they release him. The other $1.531 million goes to the Broncos. The Jets are stuck with this bill even if they dump Tebow.
When the Broncos traded Tebow to the Jets last year for fourth- and sixth-round draft picks, Mike Tannenbaum, the New York general manager at the time, was surprised to learn his team also needed to pay $5.06 million of prorated advance salary the Broncos had paid.
The payment was a deal breaker for a few hours until the Broncos and Jets agreed to split the difference of $2.53 million. The Broncos received $1 million last season and are due another $1.53 million from the Jets this year.
The Jets tried shopping Tebow at the NFL combine and, naturally, there were no takers. In fact, it seems likely that Tebow will have a tough time finding an NFL job at all this season.
Jacksonville, his most obvious destination, has shown no interest. It seems more likely that Tebow could end up in the AFL than with the Jaguars (or the other 31 NFL squads).
In reality, though, wherever he lands, he'd probably just be another distraction. Isn't that right, Mike Mularkey?
As the Jets shop Tebow, they aren't expected to ask a potential buyer to pick up his $1.53 million advance salary payment. But the Jets would like something in return, the Post writes. A seventh-round draft pick. A drawer of tight-fitting Jockey undershirts. Something.
Most likely, they won't get anything. Which is probably why a Tebow release is upcoming sometime this summer or early fall.

Posted 25 Mar 2013Revis & Bucs

In regards to a Darrelle Revis trade, there was little noise, if any, coming out of the league meetings in Arizona this week.
Tampa Bay, the only team that seems to be interested in selling the farm to acquire Revis, is reportedly growing frustrated with the Jets reluctance to pull the trigger. The Jets, meanwhile, continue to be patient.
According to a report from Sports Illustrated's Peter King, though, the Buccaneers have upped the ante to include both their first and second-round picks in 2014 and to also pay Revis roughly $15 million per season in an extension. This, despite not knowing if the corner is fully healthy.
The report says that the sticking point remains Tampa Bay's first-round pick in 2013, which the Jets apparently covet. This would give them the No. 9 and No. 13 overall picks next month. King added that nothing got done in Arizona to move negotiations forward.
For the moment, the Jets don't seem to be jumping at the offer.
New GM John Idzik is in a difficult situation. It is highly unlikely he can re-sign Revis, especially with the promise of an open market waiting for him in 2014. At best, Revis has one more season in New York.
However, Idzik's job is to get the best possible deal for Revis while he still can. As of now, he apparently thinks that is a first-round pick in 2013 as well as a pick in next year's draft.

Rex Ryan and some Jets representatives were at Georgia's Pro Day on Thursday. According to reports, Ryan appeared particularly interested in outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, defensive tackle John Jenkins and defensive tackle Kwame Geathers.

On the Jim Rome show Thursday, former Jets tight end Dustin Keller said he thought Mark Sanchez still has a chance to be successful. Keller added that he spoke to Sanchez recently and that the quarterback was excited by the prospect of working with new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg.
