    get ur jerseys stitched

    it looks like if the jets cant work out a trade before the draft they will release faneca ellis and bthomas
    to me this cements a trade up for guard mike iupati

    That is a pretty major thing to release those 3 guys, and it has been reported by a not so great news service.

    If we get rid of those players, I think the biggest thing is that Tanny is preparing for a very strict cap next year. He can avoid cap hell if he gets rid of those three players this year where there is no penalty for doing so.

    My guess is the new CBA will be nothign like the current one, and much closer to the cap of 8 years ago where it was nearly impossible to pay anyone money.


    It sucks for us when we finally have talent again. And it sucks for any major sports team.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see some of these players restructure their contracts just for the opportunity to stay on this championship caliber team

    Wait...this story is legit? I thought it was a joke. This would not be good. Perhaps Tanny is considering both the future cap and the need to resign our younger talent.

    Why would we release Ellis, even if we did draft a DE???? Isn't he in his last contract year??? If so, why not let him play out the contract then let him walk next season???

    As for Thomas, If we get a pass rushing OLB, I'm almost sure he'll be the odd man out.

    And same goes for Faneca if we get Iupati/Ducasse or another Guard... that would be a cap move, and a smart one seeing the future contracts of our young talent coming up in the next 2 years.

    All in all, 1... maybe 2 of these 3 may really get released and/or traded, but I doubt all 3.
