- Free Agency Update: Idzik Exercising Patience
As we enter the third day of free agency the Jets have released Sione Po’uha, lost Yeremiah Bell (Cardinals), LaRon Landry (Colts), Mike DeVito (Chiefs), Shonn Greene (Titans) and could be on the verge of losing Dustin Keller to the Dolphins. Meanwhile the only additions to the roster are David Garrard and bringing back FB [...]
- Why Darrelle Revis Will Not Be Traded
With the NFL new league year upon us the rumor mill is churning about trade offers for New York Jets star cornerback Darrelle Revis. There are reports the team already has a trade offer in place along with a long term contract for Revis since he becomes a free agent in 2014 unable to be [...]
- Bradway scouts Geno Smith workout
Jets senior personnel executive Terry Bradway was in attendance Thursday at the West Virginia pro day, where the star attraction was QB Geno Smith.
Bradway watched Smith in what was described as an impressive workout for scouts. He completed 60 of 64 throws in a passing drill (no defenders), including two drops by WR Stedman Bailey.
The Jets are in the quarterback market, but it’s unlikely they’d pull the trigger with the ninth overall selection.
- A Jets-Kolb marriage? Pay attention
If QB Kevin Kolb is released by the Cardinals over the next 48 hours, which is highly likely, the Jets will consider him if the price is right, according to a league source.
New Jets offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg coached Kolb with the Eagles from 2007 to 2010, and the Jets would like to have a quarterback on the roster that knows Mornhinweg’s system and could make an easy transition.
Kolb, traded to the Cards in 2011, will receive a $2 million roster bonus if he’s still on their roster Saturday — and that won’t happen unless he’s willing to take a pay cut.

- Day 2 recap: Three more out the door
Putting our spin on the news of the day:
1. A THREE-PEAT: Another tough day for the Idziks. Three free agents decided to take their talents elsewhere — RB Shonn Greene (Titans), S Yeremiah Bell (Cards) and S LaRon Landry (Colts). On Tuesday, it was DT Mike DeVito (Chiefs). Jets Nation could be on the verge of panic, but I ask: Is anybody surprised? You shouldn’t be. Everybody knew the story of early free agency would be “The Rex-odus.” They had a shot with only one of the four defectors — DeVito.
- Reaction: LaRon, we hardly knew ye
Quick thoughts on the departure of S LaRon Landry, who signed a four-year, $24 million contract Wednesday night with the Colts:
1. PREDICTABLE: This was hardly a surprise. I wrote a few weeks ago that Landry was looking for $6 million per year and, sure enough, look what he got. It was all about the money for Landry, who wasn’t about to give a hometown discount. He was a hired gun, a one-and-done player who rehabilitated his image around the league and capitalized on it.
- Yeremiah Bell To Cardinals
The New York Jets should consider bringing Moses on as a consultant; because they are experiencing a pretty serious Exodus right now. Laron Landry and Shonn Greene are gone. Yeremiah Bell is also an ex-Jet as he signed with the Arizona Cardinals. Cardinals announced they have agreed to terms with S Yeremiah Bell and LB [...]
- Titans Sign Shonn Greene
The Jets lost Shonn Green to the Tennessee Titans in free agency. According to Adam Schefter, Greene signed a 3 year 10 million dollar contract. Titans reached agreement on a three-year, $10 million deal with former Jets RB Shonn Greene. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 13, 2013 #TwitNewsNow Shonn Greene joining Tennessee Titans’ backfield dlvr.it/34hXXr [...]
- Laron Landry Signs With Colts
The list of Jets free agents has some names on it that Jets fans won’t be sad to see leave. That is not the case for Laron Landry who had a pro bowl season and was very popular for his hard hitting style. Landry has signed with the Colts, although the Jets wanted to keep [...]

- Schiano on Revis: Anything is possible
The Bucs introduced former 49ers S Dashon Goldson on Wednesday at a news conference, but the elephant in the room was Darrelle Revis. The Jets are shopping Revis, and the Bucs are known to be interested, so …
“Everything’s a possibility, but we’re not allowed to talk about players under contract with other teams,” Bucs coach Greg Schiano told the NFL Network.
Schiano also had this to say: “We’re trying to get better and anybody that can help us do that, they’re definitely on our radar.

- An Overview of Sports-Betting Odds
By – Michael Chen Some people are comfortable making sports bets based on their gut. Everyone has heard a story or two about “a friend” who managed to make big money picking a team or horse based on the color of the uniforms, the animal’s name or another unscientific method. For those in the know, …
- React: Bell goes west, defense going south
Quick takeaways on S Yeremiah Bell signing a one-year contract with the Cardinals:
1. THE EXODUS CONTINUES: On a conference call with season-ticket holders last week, Rex Ryan talked about how most players in the NFL (“if not all”) would love to play for the Jets. Oh, really? Bell became the third free agent in 24 hours to leave them, joining DT Mike DeVito (Chiefs) and RB Shonn Greene (Titans). To be fair, the Jets weren’t hot to re-sign Greene, but you get the point.
- Source: Jets re-sign FB Hilliard
Not every free agent is leaving the Jets. The Gang managed to retain FB Lex Hilliard on a one-year contract, a source confirmed.
This was a bit of a surprise. Hilliard, a midseason replacement last year for John Conner, isn’t a great fit in Marty Mornhinweg’s West Coast-style system because he’s not a particularly good pass receiver. He’s a solid lead blocker in two-back sets, although his blitz pick-up leaves a lot to be desired. He blew some blocking assignments that resulted in quarterback hits.
- Reaction: Greene goes for the green
Quick takeaways on Shonn Greene leaving the Jets to sign a three-year, $10 million contract with the Titans:
Shonn Greene#23 RBTennessee Titans2012 STATS
TD01. NO SURPRISE: You saw this coming as far back as January. Two reasons: Money and scheme. The Jets weren’t going to pay No. 1-back money to Greene, who proved the past two seasons he’s a one-dimensional runner — between the tackles, that’s it. Once they hired Marty Mornhinweg as the new coordinator, it clinched Greene’s ouster.
