    Rapelesburger is game #2 (just one more chance :yes: I want to see how Trevor greets Ben upon his return to the NFL)

    THIS - is exactly what this team missed last year T-rich, Woody, Pryce = Heart.... miles and miles of heart

    an accountant will never understand this part of life (can't compute drive and passion)

    Here is the additional byline at the end of the Times article.

    "Trevor Pryce, a former N.F.L player, is a producer and author of ďAn Army of Frogs: A Kulipari Novel,Ē to be published next spring."


    The dude's a first time novelist, good for you Trevor !

    His open letter has inpsired me to aspire to have him on the Jets. And if he can no longer play, he would make the perfect coach for the D-Linemen. People like him are a rarity; even in the NFL. All Heart; gotta love him.

    sounds like we could use his leadership
    but the d-line looks crowded already and we've invested in these young guys like Ellis, Ropati, Marcus Dixon
    Not sure if there's a roster spot for him

    [QUOTE=C Mart;4441369]Wow! Interesting! Many people here don't agree, but as a rotational player in '11 he contributed. Bring him in for a look...Nothing wrong with Wilk and Ellis watching/learning from Pryce..[/QUOTE]

    agreed plus the man is hungry to play football. He is a REX guy and was a positive influence in the lockerroom! Bring the man in for a look-see!

    I'm all for bringing Trevor back for training camp and seeing if he can contribute, but at the end of the day we need to get younger and more athletic all around on this team.

    Am I the only one who thinks that he wasn't actually serious about coming back? I mean.. It makes for a nice article about the young bored retired athlete, but wouldn't he just give Rex a call instead of penning an editorial in the nyt?

    I say bring him back in training camp and let him compete....only upside there as if he has enough in the tank he makes it, if not he doesn't. If he doesn't put him on the staff as a mentor to wilkerson/ellis. Seems like a good guy to have around the team either way.

    Trevor had a few appearances as an analyst on the new NBC Sports Network. He was very very good. Wish ESPN would pick him up. Dude seems like an all around talented guy, good signing for training camp to see what he has left.

    For those who don't get why he would write an open letter, it's a literary exercise for his own edification. Those exercises are all too lacking for the able minded in today's lard & twitter society.

    Great article by Trevor. Really like what he has to say and like seeing when Athletes that we all know and are familiar with are smart and well spoken.

    Nice piece, impressive piece...

    But the bigger deal for me is how revered Rex Ryan is to Pryfe and who inspired him to write it

    Some of the cLowns on this site and others to be fair started crying for his departure after a season that started in promising fashion but had a bumpy finish. If you read this board as a neutral, one would think the Jets had just finished a 1-15 season.
