WAS the best defensive player on the Jets.
Keep him this year. If he pulls shenanigans at contract time, see ya.
As someone noted a conditional trade can be made. Let this unnecessary cancer who already screwed up one near-great season (2010) be someone else's headache - if the Jets can backload this frontloaded punk into a cannon and shoot him far away from AFC East, giants, Pittsburgh while they can control the destination so much the better
