Edgerton Hartwell to the Jets ?
Posted on March 5th, 2009 - by Bassett
Take it as hearsay, but Iíve been told that that former Ravens & Raiders Linebacker Edgerton Hartwell might be signed by the Jets.As far as football, Hartwell is a solid run-blocker and a smart player, but what he isnít is fast and heís struggled with injuries throughout his career. This likely makes him a rotational backup to fill in for the Jets inside, especially in goal line / running plays.
When you are a writer, they say ďstart with what you know.Ē If this rumor about Hartwell is true, then just like most coaches in the league, the new coaches are starting with what they know on defense, which is fine by me. The difference of Hartwell or Brad Kassell doesnít mean a lot to me.
A very credible, solid source? Just like all these other rumors (at least the Holt I posted was John Clayton on ESPN radio - and that hasn't happened either). Any rumor is worth posting if it's written somewhere, this is a message board.
