Buzz: Cardinals WR Andre Roberts to sign with Redskins

Mike Jones of the Washington Post is reporting that 24 year old free agent Andre Roberts will be joining the Redskins.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Roberts was a productive young receiver in which the Jets were said to have early interest.

In the last 24 hours the Jets have been closely tied to James Jones of the Packers.

These were my top 2 WR's on my board, Smart cheap signing by the skins. Jones was my #1 the whole time so lets see how that goes. Ware vs Cowboys still on the clock & my gut tells me this is something our GM is watching closely.

Most of the big deals have been agreed to and we're just waiting for the last minute leaks and announcements to see what we did. In a few hours we'll all know what Idzik's 2014 strategy is. That's when the real discussion begins.

Come on, Verner!  


But seriously, I do get the feeling we sign Byrd because of the lack of 'sources' detailing the Jets interest when compared to every other FA out there.  While I don't think it's the best way to spend money on the D, it would be a hilarious middle finger to the local beat writers courtesy of Mr. Idzik (I won't call him John)...

"Ravens have extended an exclusive-rights tender to safety Brynden Trawick, according to a source."


Who?  Sounds like a GoT character.

HAHAHAHAHAHA. The Bucs asked for two 1's. TWO #1 DRAFT PICKS IN THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE. For Revis. THe guy they're cutting in a day. ;lagfa;lkhgf;lsag;lajg;lajg that team is so bad it's almost not fun to laugh at. 




Almost.

Jets please be cautious in FA. Don't go after the flash and splash.

Any interest in Kevin Williams as solid depth? Shaun Phillips?

@Brendan  

That's negotiating 101, always ask for more than what you are really looking for.

@Marvel  

If he does, I think there's a very good chance we'd land him. Rex would hold a gun to Idzik's head to make it happen.

@Marvel  I would jump through the internet to kiss you if the Jets got him.

@Brendan  If we're going to sign a TE coming off of a snapped leg, why not bring back Keller on an even cheaper deal?

Brendan

@jdb4 That is equivalent to saying you should go into negotiations for a used Honda Civic with an asking price of $100,000.

@jdb4 Yeah but when someone starts at such an inflated price I usually laugh and walk away.

@juunit @Marvel  I think he'd do that for Revis too. At a certain point, Rex can only hold a gun to Idzik's head so many times until it becomes coercion with a deadly weapon.

It's not up to Rex

Don't want the mistakes of the past to be part of our future.

@J. Smooth @Brendan  That's not really an equal comparison. Daniels had a fracture while Keller's leg was all but amputated.

I wonder how Revis and his agent feel about the pay cut that is surely coming.

@J. Smooth @Pat d  You can't force him to restructure his contract. He would rather walk away, and pick the team that offers him the best money. 

J. Smooth

@Pat d  You could make part of the conditions of the trade to be that he has to sign a restructured deal.

No one wants anything to do with Revis's contract.

@Brendan @jdb4  More like saying you'll give up a used Mercedes for ONE BILLION DOLLARS **pinky finger to mouth**

@levi @Brendan 

I think Pettine wants him bad.  I think the owner wants him worse

@Brendan @jdb4  Well, if that's the price it must be good!  SOLD!

@Brendan However its being said that the Browns are in serious discussions so I wonder how bad Pettine wants him...

I doubt if the guy writing the check is very team Revis either

@Pat d  

Yeah, I don't think Rex is as team Revis as he used to be. Not after he said "trade me."

Revis isn't coming to the Jets and if Rex made a fuss about bringing him in he will be fired.

Doubt that if Rex wants to keep his job.

It depends on the price. You have to be cautious when it comes to FA

@Pat d  

Not completely no. But Rex would throw a temper tantrum if Idzik wasn't all in on trying to get him. Probably lie down in front of some tanks in Tiananmen Square too.

@gbrownn  I don't think we'll be doing an "official" chat, but the room is open (password: ticktock ) and if you want to spread the word here in the comments or even on twitter, feel free.

Can we open up a free agency Chatzy thread? My browser at work is alot more compatible with that for some reason.

@Brendan @Bent  They were active, but I guess they (smartly?) de-activated them to speed up load times?

@Marvel @Brendan  What are you even doing here?  We have a live thread now and you're hanging out in a [F word written in a funny way]-ing Andre Roberts thread?
