you know, i think the jets are doign this on purpose, with having all the starters come back, and only losing Askew this year, no roster spots really opened up, and having money from the Offseason, we are trading our picks this year for Players that will come in and make a big impact, were not stocking picks and then having them sit or cut were getting guys who are going to come in and play, due to the lack of spots on out roster, because we retained out FA's.
Trading Vilma at this point in the day, based upon the fact that we can't get a 2007 1st for him (obviously) and the fact that we have come out ahead in all our deals today... would basically net us at least a late 2nd this year, a 2008 1st and maybe a 2007 3rd or 4th... I love Vilma, but if we could get these types of picks in exchange for Vilma I would say go for it.
it's a reasonable question. Vilma only has two years left on his deal. This defense is not well-suited for him. I doubt he will be resigned.
At the same time, Hobson has ability to move inside with Harris, and you have Schlegel for depth. Add to that the fact there are some good prospects left who project to the outside, I wouldn't be opposed to a trade.
