Jets interested in WR Jacoby Ford

The Jets are interested in WR Jacoby Ford (Costello, March 17).

In 38 games since 2010 in Oakland, Ford has caught 57 passes for 848 yards and three touchdowns.  He has also averaged 8.6 yards per punt return in limited work and 29.9 yards per kick return with four touchdowns, three of which came back in 2010.

Brian Bassett, TheJetsBlog.com

Beyond his special team work, Ford would be connected to the Jets via Sanjay Lal, the former receivers coach in Oakland. Ford has that track star speed that can work on special teams, especially the return game.  He would be another potential flier for the Jets who could contribute on special teams with little upside on offense.

This would be a real nice pick-up. Shouldn't cost too much either. Bring back Cro, Sign Clemens, Get some OL help, than Draft Ebron Rd1, Kelvin Benjamin/Daunte Moncrief rd 2. Would of liked Anthony Spencer but he maybe out of the picture now that we resigned Pace.

With the Cap space and all the Draft picks I thought this was going to be our year. I now know it will NEVER be our year. That's not the plan. Tebow, Cap money not spent, one stunt after another. It's not about winning, it's about making MONEY, period.

Hey, Woodhead, you did not forget to raise my tictets. After you release Sabchez you will be 32 million under the cap. That,'s about 26 % under the cap. Can I expect 25%rebate on my tickets.

OK, I am bored talking about who the Jets are supposedly interested in....I just ran a simulation and came out with the folloing picks....(No supplementakl picks here)


R1 Beckham WR

R2 Benjamin WR

R3 Niklas TE

R4 Sankey RB

R4 Breslin OLB

R5 Barrow ILB

R6 Davis CB

R7 Saunders OW


That would be a pretty sweet haul.

I like Ford for MM's offense.  Now, if the Jets also sign either Rice or Austin, then with the draft coming up, I'd be satisfied.

If we miss out on a FA Corner, we're very likely to take Darqueze Dennard or Justin Gilbert at 18 if either player is there.

would love this move

WR: Decker Kerly Hill Ford Nelson (then add some via draft)

draft: 

1st: (trade back add a 3rd rd pick) WR Robinson

2nd: OG Yankey

3rd: OLB Attaochu CB STANLEY JEAN-BAPTISTE

TE Fiedorowicz

day 3: RB Isaiah Crowell and QB Boyd, take best available players no matter what position 


cut Sanchez

free agency: CB  Dimitri Patterson, S Chris Clemons, add more competition everywhere  resign OG Colon

This "jets interested' reminds me of in JR High, "Joe likes---." but just like here  Joe never asked the girl out, and when someone else did "Joe liked' someone else. . For  Cripes sake Idzik, ask one of these folks to go out, before all the girls go to the Prom with someone else .

Breaking: Jets interested in Godot.  Signing expected today, but if not today,  definitely tomorrow.

Any chance we can get Jared Allen to enter the building.

@harvlis  The truth: We are being reported as interested in everybody and actually interested in hardly anyone.

No way, Benjamin is there at two.

@SackDance99  

So you want Decker, Ford, Rice/Austin, Kerley, Nelson and Hill as the WR core.....then we don't have to draft one as there wouldn't be any room on the roster.

@gusto  agree. Not much choice. If they're gone, they have to take Verrett-who may be the best of the 3 all-around. Plays like Aaron Glenn, IMO. Size is his only problem I can see.

@Frank Monastra  

Too bad none of the guys you picked would qualify as the Best available where you have us picking them.......

@Frank Monastra  really like Attaochu, Fiedorowicz and Crowell (as a gamble). Attaochu figures to be gone in the 2nd though.

@Frank Monastra  Robinson is my favorite player in this draft... honestly i know it wouldnt be a good move but if we got him at 18 i wouldnt be too upset

@Frank Monastra

Yankey is terrible.  I would not draft him before the 4th round. 

Patterson is more of an off man CB, not great for our system.

@Tyrone Garcia


Lets not forget if a player get hurt early in the season we may have to bring someone in during the season.

@Marvel  serious question if the jets sign ford would that kinda make up for not signing ginn??

bob

@Marvel   I like Idzik.. I'm confident he really knows how to find good players in the draft and also has great staff helping him.


Its possible we could have 5 new starters from the draft.

@bob  Probably not. He's asking for big bucks that the team probably isn't willing to shell out for a pass rusher in his 30's, no matter how much I would love it.

@harvlis  

He was in the simulation so I took him........you never know!

@SackDance99  

That would be like needing a QB in 1983 and signing Cliff Stoudt and Scott Brunner then passing on Marino, Elway, Kelly etc.....

Im actually excited, whens the last time we had someone with his speed. This guy is EXPLOSIVE with the ball in his hands. I just hope he can stay healthy.

@bob @Marvel 

Yeah he signed Stephen Peterman right before the draft. you know, the guy we cut a week into training camp because he sucked worse then Winters and Vlad......

@rstysanchz

 honestly,  no.... Ford hasn't done anything since 2010..not even in the return game.


bring him to camp I guess.. but DAT is the play.

@Brendan @bob


I would love to land this guy..The final piece of turning offenses upside down.

@Marvel to be fair ford is on the raiders...look at the guys the raiders put out there to play off and def the last 2 years then think the guys who are even worse are blocking for ford in the return game

@Brendan @bob

Maybe he may not get the price he's looking for and fall into a Idzik category.

@bob He's great, I just think his age & asking price mean it's a no-go.
