Tebow to Jets? Not so fast.

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

After reports came out earier today that the Jets traded for Broncos QB Tim Tebow, ESPN is now reporting that there may be a glitch in the deal that will void the trade.

Many Jets fans are indeed praying that the trade of Tim Tebow to the Jets will be voided.

In possibly the biggest “scratch your head”  news in Jets history (and there have been many over the years) the story broke out early this afternoon that the Jets had sent a 4th round and 6th round pick in this year’s draft  for Tebow and the Broncos’ 7th round pick.

Now, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the two sides have encountered a hangup in the language of Tim Tebow’s contract that could nullify the trade. It this is indeed true, it’s reported that the St. Louis Rams could be Tebow’s destination.

Jets Ink Safety Landry

Monday, March 19th, 2012

In their biggest free agent splash of the new season so far, the Jets today came to terms with former Redskins S LaRon Landry today, filling a huge void in Rex Ryan’s defense.

The deal was confirmed by several sources and reportedly is for one year at $4MM. Landry had spoken with several suitors but it was reported that there had been hesitantancy to sign the talented defensive back to a long term deal due to a history of injuries including a chronic Achilles’ issue. The Jets seem to have hedged their risk by limiting their deal to just a year.

Landry, a former 1st round pick of Washington in 2007, is a great athlete who is a freight train around the line of scrimmage but not as good in pass coverage. Landry will join Eric Smith at FS and there’s a chance Jim Leonhard could be re-signed on te cheap, coming off injury.

Landry joins former Lions QB Drew Stanton and former Raiders WR Chaz Schilens as new free agents that have come to the Jets this past week.
