- Let the Kevin Kolb Watch begin
As expected, the Cards released QB Kevin Kolb on Friday, intensifying the speculation that he could land with the Jets.

- New York Jets Sign Mike Goodson, Other Moves Coming Soon
The New York Jets signed running back Mike Goodson, what other moves are on the way?
- Reaction: Jets should’ve kept Keller
Some quick thoughts on the Jets’ latest defection — TE Dustin Keller leaving to take his talents to South Beach for a one-year contract with the Dolphins:
QUESTIONABLE MOVE: I can understand why the Jets let RB Shonn Greene, S LaRon Landry, S Yeremiah Bell and, to a lesser extent, DT Mike DeVito walk out the door, but this Keller situation puzzles me. He’s only 28, still in his prime. He’s a pass-catching tight end whose skills would’ve translated nicely into Marty Mornhinweg’s West Coast system.
- Reaction: Goodson, the anti-Greene
Quick thoughts on the Jets signing former Raiders RB Mike Goodson:
1. KEY ROLE: Based on the size of his contract (three years, $6.9 million), the Jets see Goodson as more than a spare part, which is what he was with the Panthers and Raiders. Let’s face it, the Jets still don’t have a true No. 1 back, so Goodson will compete for significant playing time. Now that Shonn Greene is gone, he’ll probably split the lead role with Bilal Powell. Remember what new GM John Idzik preaches: Competition, competition, competition.
- Sanity Finally Rules!
After two years of dumb and dumber moves (extending Sanchez, trading for Tebow, signing Holmes and Wayne Hunter to mucho bucks, Derrick Mason, Brodney Pool, releasing Woodhead … Imagine If they actually signed Nnamdi and lost Cromartie!)
- Jets sign Goodson, could be No. 1 RB
After losing four players at the outset of free agency, the Jets finally made an aggressive move. They signed former Raiders running back Mike Goodson to a three-year, $6.9 million contract, a league source said Friday.
Goodson, who also attracted interest from the Bengals, will have a chance for a significant role. The Jets lost leading rusher Shonn Greene to the Tennessee Titans, leaving a gaping hole in the backfield.
The holdovers are Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight, neither of whom has experience as an every-down back.

- Day 3 recap: The bleeding stops
A little spin on the day what was:
1. NO NEWS, GOOD NEWS: For a change, the Jets didn’t lose any players. TE Dustin Keller completed an overnight trip with the Dolphins, but he left their facility in the afternoon without a deal. Sources say the two sides will stay in touch. I get the sense the Dolphins are wary of overpaying for Keller, so they will continue to gauge interest in him. The market for Keller isn’t as robust as anticipated, and there’s now some thought that he could return to the Jets, perhaps on a one-year deal.
- Revis talks could heat up in desert
As of now, the Bucs are the only strong suitor for Darrelle Revis, league sources said Thursday, setting up a high-stakes game of poker between them and the Jets.
Senior officials from both teams will be under the same roof at the NFL meetings, starting Sunday in Phoenix. You’d have to think there will be conversations between the two sides as the Revis trade drama (will they or won’t they?) stretches to two months.
Both teams have risk; so does Revis.
- New York Jets – Sorting Through The Revis Hysteria
Since the beginning of the new league year this past Tuesday, rumors have been swirling, speculating trade partners for New York Jets Cornerback Darrelle Revis. It has been the common train of thought that Revis will inevitably be moved at some point this offseason, for the Jets cannot afford to pay him an astronomical annual …
- Leon lands with the enemy
This one will hurt.
#33 RBSeattle Seahawks
Former Jets all-purpose star Leon Washington, one of the team’s most popular players from 2006 to 2009, signed a one-year contract Thursday with the Patriots. It’s a nice signing for the Patriots, who likely will use Washington to replace another ex-Jet, Danny Woodhead, a free agent.
The Jets traded Washington, 30, to the Seahawks during the 2010 draft.
