I am not completely out of my mind not knowing how important this kid is to the Jets. The guy is an awesome pass blocking LT who belongs on a team with a passing offense something the Jets doesn't have and won't have next season.
That means we will have this guy around for atleast another 2 yrs on a team that doesn't need him watching his value decline even more than it already has. Why not shop him to the Bears for their 1st and give them someone to protect the blind side of Jay Cutler.
With our 2 1st rounders,we can draft his replacement at 9, another lineman with the 1st we get from the bears and both those players will cost us less than Brick will over this contract and his next.
With our 2nd round pick we can draft eith our RB,or an OLBer. Heck,we might be able to rebuild the entire OL in 1 draft . If we're able to trade Revis also, we could even get a potential QB to groom for the future in someone like Bray or Dysert or whoever might be ur favorite.
