Buzz: Jets interested in QB Shaun Hill?

Here’s the latest name to throw into the mix, courtesy of Seth Walder from the New York Daily News:

Bent, TheJetsBlog.com

Hill has been a career backup, but is well respected in league circles. The 34-year old has started a total of 26 games in his NFL career, all between 2007 and 2010, and has a career passer rating of 85.9 (11th highest among qualifying active players). He has only thrown 16 passes in the last three seasons though, including none last year.

Walder doesn’t exactly seem to be committing himself to the Jets having any high level of interest, so this may just be one of several backups in respect of whom the Jets have put out some feelers. If he was to sign for the Jets, he’d be a good fit for their system and presumably willing to accept a backup role. After all, who wouldn’t want to be “the most popular guy in town”?

Didn't we sign Shaun hill, and then release him a few years ago? I doubt he wants to play that game again...

Regarding Shaun hill. That seems so 2009. If this is what we do for qb it's idzik telling us he's all in w geno. And as much as love a suffocating defense we cannot. Not draft defense with our first two picks let alone our first one. We already have a playoff defense we need to start caring about scoring points

Can we have an off-topic post where everyone submits their theory on how True Detective will end?

Randy Lange ‏@rlangejets  16m

Jeff Cumberland averaged 15.3 yds/catch last season, 3rd-best avg among NFL tight ends with at least 25 catches.


Really Randy? TJB posters seem to think he's hot garbage,"a below average TE".

How could this be?

Hears a thought,maybe it wasn't the TE.

@a57se  Hey 57 I'm new to posting here but I've been "lurking in the shadow's"  for a while like your mock post scenarios how do you feel If Jets go Defense?

I wouldn't mind the Jets drafting a qb. Statistically good qbs don't throw more picks then TDs in a season. Even if its their first. I know Peyton did but Peyton also threw 26 TDs. I like what I saw from Geno in the last 4 games but I really think the Jets should take a qb in this draft.

We can talk all we want about how good the team can be but truth be told we will always be closer to average if our qb can't consistently throw TDs and not then it over.

Shields re-signs 4 years, 39m


...and to think some people expected us to pick up one of the top starting corners for like $5-6m.

@jake100  I foresee at least 1  splashy move by our F.O and a bunch of low risk high reward move's. imo

@davem  I'm actually watching that right now.  Only episode three though.

@johnnyl65  I don't mind Jeff, he's definitely worked at his blocking, gets open downfield and can run after the catch.  I just wish he'd catch the ball cleanly more often.  So many missed opportunities for conversions and YAC.


We were spoiled with K2 last year.  Great hands.

@happycoco @a57se 

Depends on who is available but I like CJ Mosley, Barr if he falls.......glad someone likes the mock scenarios.

@jake100  Not hearing about him talking to any other teams is reassuring, though.

Too bad Grimes didn't make it to FA. He only got $8m per.

@Bent  

Wow....seriously?

Well I was all wet on that one!!

I thought 7-8....

Bent

@Marvel @johnnyl65  He basically took a 50% paycut to re-sign (albeit with incentives apparently).

No defense this time!!!!!

@a57se  Crazy that Shields is getting close to $10M, which means Verner will be getting dangerously close to Revis' $16M

@jake100 @happycoco Wonder on how many other team sites you're seeing "(blank) Interested in Jets Howard."  If a bunch, that's disconcerting. If none that's even more disconcerting!

@jake100  I Guess it depends how you look at it........glass half full / half empty.

@jake100 No you weren't, you did this earlier today and people told you then that it wasn't true.

@Brendan @Bent  My thinking is that if Shields is worth 9.5m then maybe some team would actually think he's worth taking a flyer on with his 4.3m salary and whatever roster bonus they'd need to account for.

@Marvel @J. Smooth Yes, Davis.

Brendan
Brendan

@Bent Hm, you think they could convince someone to trade some picks for him? He's close to being cut by most accounts. 

Bent
Bent moderator

@Brendan @Bent  Maybe he's actually tradeable.  Not sure if the roster bonus goes with him if he's traded but if it is they could eat part of it by converting to signing bonus.  Just thinking aloud...

Brendan
Brendan

@Bent Well, the other option being an outright cut, maybe he's more open to it? 

Bent
Bent moderator

@Brendan @jdb4  Shields getting 9.75m per year doesn't exactly bode well for a reasonable rate restructure.


Remember, he's repped by CAA.

Brendan
Brendan

@jdb4 He's already under contract. Ideally the team restructures him over cutting/re-signing, if that's what they're going with.

Yea but if Berber costs that much I stay away. Keep Cro and draft a kid. Spend on offense you know?

harold

I dont think he wil get that much more and if he does run. Tarell Brown is probably 6.5 million APY now get her done.

Brendan

@happycoco While you have Milliner under contract you can afford to pay the other corner big money. If things work out the way we hope, Milliner will be getting a new deal as the deal Free Agent X signs this offseason expires.

@J. Smooth @a57se  Or the market could just be exactly where it has been for three years with everyone at the glass ceiling of $10m or slightly above and Revis being a hilarious outlier.
