Austin Howard will never be a hot commodity amongst NFL teams. Keep him for the cheapest you possibly can. He's not going anywhere. Don't worry. Maybe he'll actually come forward with some solid productivity in his fourth NFL season. The nine lives of Austin Howard.
To some Jets fans, if you aren't ****, you're amazing. Gotta love it. We can never have someone who's in between or below mediocre and acknowledge it.
Yes, i think Howard has enough upside so that a team like Chicago, Cinci or Cleveland make a move, the Pats may make a move if Vollmer leaves in FA.
Paying a backup swing tackle 3 mill to back up Cannon and Solder who together don't make 2mill is not out of the question. The kid struggled last year but he did get better as the year went on. give him a 250,000 bonus and if he does not make the team it cost 1/4 mill- big deal. It is probably worth the 1/4 mill just to force the jets to deal with another hole.
