    Tannenbaum at the Combine

    [URL="https://twitter.com/#%21/JennyVrentas"][B]Jenny Vrentas[/B] ‏ @[B]JennyVrentas[/B] [/URL]
    Jets plan to tender RFA Aaron Maybin at original (first) round tender, source says. Won't do long-term deal this year. [URL="https://twitter.com/#%21/search/%23nyj"]#[B]nyj[/B][/URL]

    Tannenbaum said he's had "some talks" w/Sione Pouha's reps, "nothing imminent." Called him priority, want to reach deal "within reason"

    Tannenbaum might be the worst evaluator of personnel in the NFL. He is good with contracts though--as I have always called him--a Bean Counter.

    I was joking. Hence the smiley face.

    But in all seriousness, I don't perceive Tannenbaum as a talent evaluator. I'm not sure that's his strength.

    They were Mangini's picks.

    Jets haven't had a good draft since he left.

    I think Gholston evened the disparity out just a bit...

    But in all seriousness Mangini had the luxury of picking in two of the most talent laden drafts when we got Brick Mangold and Revis

    I still believe that Mangini took Gholston only because he heard rumblings that BB was going to grab him with the number 1 pick. And I wouldn't be surprised if BB intentionally leaked that information.

    I'm really not into conspiracy, nor do i believe that BB would have made Gholston into an all pro. We picked him because he was slotted there talent wise by scouts and it was a position of need.

    I really think that Tanny relies on his actual talent evaluators, Clinkscales and his staff more than anything. I would think they provide him with 75% of his decision making.

    I certainly didn't create it.

    It was something I had read at the time.

    Oh I know you didn't. It was a way of deflecting the fact that nearly everyone in positions of power thought Gholston was stud worthy including the Jets scouting department

    The only difference is the Jets alone had to pay for their mistakes.

    I don't know much about Clinkscales or his abilities.

    I know he interviewed for a GM job recently and wasn't hired.
