Lowery was #25 in college, now that Rhodes is gone I'm sure he'll have no issue going back to that number freeing up #21, heck he may of had it planned to go back to #25 before this.
LaDainian Tomlinson is a Jet. About 5 years ago I would have been running around like a mad man cause I would have been so happy by this news. Right now, kind of happy. Tomlinson is a shadow of his former self, but maybe we can catch lightning in a bottle with him. After cutting ties with Jones another running back to go along with Greene was a need.
I hope I'm wrong, but I think this is a bad move.
Emmitt Smith was 34 at the time he went to Arizona.
LT will be 31 next year, or you know, a year younger then that RB we just let go of.
Both Emmitt and that RB we let go of last year had seasons with over 1,200 yards and 4 YPC at Age 31.
Nevermind, that those guys were asked to carry the load for their teams. LT will be a BACKUP here. That alone makes the whole situation Apples and Oranges.
everyone who thought LT is washed up is going to have to eat their words...ive watched SD games and their OL was ****...i also watched Jet games and TJ ran through holes the size of grand canyon. if anyone thinks otherwise i am willing to put up 50 bucks that says LT has a better YPC then TJ did this year.
Another aspect people overlook is that TJ couldn't catch a cold....LT will give Sanchez a safety blanket and allow Keller run more deep routes instead of staying in all the time. Either way, we still need a safety...but our DB's and RB's are way better now then they were last year.
Awesome i really love this signing!!
But i guess that means Leon Washington is a goner..
We wont carry LT, Greene and Washington on our roster.
A move that doesn't work out, but a bad move? How?

Since we are posting pics of guys who had short stints with a team other than the one they are most closely associated with, I submit what I believe is a better comparison of LT with the Jets:
Depth is a good thing, the Jets aren't stupid enough to just give away Leon. If someone wants to give him a mega-deal and give us a 2nd round pick. That's one thing, but he's not going to be on the trade block for less. No chance in hell of that.
every interview i heart with Tanny he said they want as many RB's as they can get...they will carry all 3 and maybe another one!
