if we can somehow swap Sanchez for Rivers, i'd consider it. but i wouldn't give up a first-rounder to get it done. trading picks for overrated, overpaid veterans is part of the reason why we're in this mess.
edit -- and i forgot, all this so we can re-sign Keller to a huge deal he never really earned? no thanks.
In what world is Keller getting a huge deal this offseason from the Jets or any other team for that matter? This injury plagued bust of a season for him is going to greatly help the Jets at the negotiating table. TE's do not get huge contracts in this league anymore. Rivers has had terrible offensive lines for the past two years now. For people to write him off already is very premature. The Super Bowl is coming to NY in 2014 and I can promise you the Jets won't be trotting out some fringe 2nd year qb as long as Woody owns the team, if they get rid of Sanchez a vet is coming in.
