Cyd Zeigler is a Patriots fan. His outsports bio has "Go Pats!" in it. I think it's quite sad that he would let his team orientation affect his comments on such an important matter. Quite regressive really.

Miles Austin would be a great LOW cost option to scoop.   He visited with us before signing with Dallas.

F that OutSports guy. While I don't think Sam will end up on the Jets, I honestly think it'd be one of the better landing spots for him.  Progressive fanbase, strong voice on the team by his fellow alumn Richardson, and a good coaching staff.

Rex and Johnny Z will address the media this Thursday at the combine.

I know we all love the what ifs to play out like will Winters up his game, will Campbell, Oboushi be legitimate starters one day, will they resign Colon and will he be able to stay on the field if they do with his being injury prone and on the wrong side of 30? Also, I dont see no competent depth if one of our main starters goes down and God forbid if they let Howard test the open market!   I really hope they bolster this line. Even with playmakers, if the line is a mess it will be for naught as the offense goes as the line goes. Two of our best lineman graded out just barely average. The only consistent and slightly better than average player was Howard. We have over spent on the oline and these are the results? something is not right!   We better beef up this line this off season!    http://thejetpress.com/2014/01/15/pff-offensive-line-rankings-new-york-jets-ranked-25th/

Just read 9 kickers making at least 3m!  I guess inflation is "kicking" in, lol

To hell with what everyone thinks about Michael Sam would result in with him going to the Jets.  I'd be fine with him as a Jet.


That being said I believe that Morgan Breslin would be a better fit with a guy catching a lot of attention, South Dakota's Tyler Starr, at outside linebacker.

Cyd Zeigler?  Does he realize the Jets have a new and very good GM now and are headed on the way up?

This link "Too much " is easy......Folk!    I would pay not much more than 2 big ones to keep him, 3m is out of the question.

I guess it's hopeless to continue; OutSports disapproves of the organization.

Yeah.....no one could possibly figure out who that is supposed to be!

@Iain BartholomewDespite his team bias (and kudos for pointing that out), if Zeigler was referring to 'ownership' when he said "leadership", I'd have to agree with him...and not just as it may apply to Sam.  Woody, Danny and Jerry comprise quite the formidable clown car.

@Iain Bartholomew  

You think it is his 'team' orientation that is influencing his view?

I thought it had more to do with the Jets getting rid of Rhodes a few years ago...there was some hint about Rhodes being G&Y and  who knows, maybe he thinks Rex is a little homophobic!

@Daniel  

At 30 and with his history of not being able to stay on the field the last three years with Hamstring issues, iI think the Jets might pass.........

@jake100  

At which point they will reveal all their off-season plans for the team!

@jake100Agree 1000%.  Would like to see us make a run at C/OG Evan Dietrich-Smith in Free Agency, then trade down in the 1st and possibly pick up Tennessee OT Antonio Richardson in the 2nd. Instant quality depth at all OL positions.

Breslin or Reilly would be my vote.

@davem  

I would think the Kerry Rhodes situation from a few years ago is the reason for their outrage.

@a57se @Daniel  A contract based on incentives wouldn't be bad I would give him a try. 1st we would have to try him out to see if he is in a good condition to play and go from there.

@a57se @Disgruntled Jets Fan what evidence do you have of Kerry having any issues with the jets over has supposed sexuality?

@Brendan @a57se 

I see your point about the Cards but Rhodes did play there for four years....Rex got rid of him after one season......

@a57se I think if it had anything to do with Rhodes, he'd have listed the Cardinals, where Darnell Dockett continually went after Rhodes, even spitting in his face mid-game. At the time it was insinuated Rhodes was being a headache, but looking back it could also have been that Dockett had some kind of dislike for Rhodes because he was g*y? 


It's also never been confirmed Rhodes is g*y, even though the evidence seems pretty clear.

@Brendan @a57se 

You may be right. 

The whole Pats fan thing might be fishing as well.
