It's tough to separate sentimentality from reality I guess.
People need to look at it from the other angle. Imagine if the Jets traded for a 28-year-old running back who can't even run (and whose career rushing high was 650 yards) coming off a devastating injury...when there's a dozen or so RBs fresh out of college with fresh legs you could get in the middle rounds on a significantly cheaper contract. It would not go over well.
