Buzz: Jets interested in James Jones

The Jets, and Giants, are “in the mix” for WR James Jones (Pauline, March 11).

In 2013, with the Packers, Jones had 59 receptions for 817 yards and three touchdowns. In his seven year career, all with the Packers, he has 37 touchdown receptions and over 4,000 yards receiving.

Rather than re-hash too much, be sure to read Bent’s thoughts on Jones here.

Eric Decker is the best of the group, but unlike Vincent Jackson or Mike Wallace in year’s past there are no hyper-productive and/or hyper-talented young receivers on this year’s market.  Instead there are a number of productive players that could be fits for the Jets, but should not expected to be saviors.  James Jones and Golden Tate are players that might project well with the Jets, but while they are both productive the Jets will still need to consider using some early draft picks on a very talented receiver class to quickly round out what might be a solid group of receivers from WR1 – WR4.

Something to think about no matter what happens this afternoon...per Bill Polian .....if Revis is released tomorrow, then the Jets/Bucs trade will go down as one of the worst trades  in NFL history......a #1 & a #4 and millions spent on a rehabbing rental for one season.

@Hanknaples Hank, I said "to play opposite Martin." I don't care which side they were on.


The idea that Brandon Albert would suddenly make Incognito less of a scumbag is silly.

@Hanknaples  Not signing Brandon Albert didn't cause "Bullygate." The idea was to start Albert opposite Martin.

@Hanknaples You spent countless hours defending Ireland on this blog, Hank.

@Hanknaples You say there is a cap hell. We tell you that you're wrong. You argue about painted corners and whatever else. You ignore everything we've ever said about "cap hell." 


Now you think there's no such thing as cap hell?

@Hanknaples I....I'm not dealing with this right now. The hypocrisy in your comment is suffocating.
