    Cimini: Is Wayne's world ending soon?

    Doesn't sound like Hunter will be holding onto that spot for long..

    [QUOTE]Wayne Hunter's hold on the right-tackle position is tenuous.

    Even though no offensive tackles were chosen in the first three rounds of the draft, Hunter "will be competing for a position there," GM Mike Tannenbaum said Friday night at the conclusion of the third round. "There are three young guys that we like in Caleb (Schlauderaff), Austin (Howard) and Vlad (Ducasse), so we will see how that goes."

    Schlauderaff is a guard, but Ducasse and Howard are tackles. In a follow-up question, Tannenbaum was asked if, in fact, Hunter is competing for his old starting job.

    "I’d say Wayne is our right tackle now, and that’s something that we’re going to continue to look at," he said. "I think the offensive line is something that we will continue to monitor here the next couple of weeks, as we will at all positions, once we get through the draft and evaluate the depth chart."

    Hunter has a $2.45 million guarantee for 2012, so it's unlikely he'd be released. But if the Jets can trade him and get something in return, they might deem him expendable. Hunter struggled last season in his first year as a full-time starter.[/QUOTE]

    Just because he isn't starting material doesn't mean we just get rid of him. If anything, he could be good depth (like he used to be) with a chip on his shoulder to prove he's not the scrub everyone makes him out to be.

    If we can get good value for him, fine. But I'd love to see some depth along that line, and wouldn't mind him being a part of it . . .

    It sounds obscene considering his performance.

    You all know what's better for this team than our own GM and our head coach.

    Just to throw this out there for everyone craving an OL still. [QUOTE]Recommendation: The Dolphins selected Jonathan Martin in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft potentially to one day take over the left tackle position currently occupied by Long. Long has made the Pro Bowl the last four seasons but his body also seems to be breaking down with knee, biceps, and shoulder injuries. [/QUOTE] Word has it Miami will look to move or cut Long. This was even mention during the draft.

    Are you mentioning it because you think we might be interested, or to make a point that Miami is putting more thought into their OL than we are?:huh:

    He also loves Austin Howard and Dennis Landolt. Maybe we will have that RT position well manned!

    Miami OL isn't half as good as ours but Long was by far their best OL and they just replaced him. We have their old coach. Everyone was after a crappy Miami G earlier so why not go for the better OL? With Longs injuries he may be better off at RT and you are talking a pro bowl OT here. Because of his salary he wouldn't take a lot to get him in trade. So it is just something worth discussing IMO.

    Dude has an $11M cap hit this season.

    How would we possibly accomodate that?

    So what happens with you as fans when you continue to ask questions about the RT spot, assume something will happen in FA or the draft, and nothing does? Then, you hear the HC talking up the very guy you thought was a problem last season? What do you do then? Do you stay a Jets fan?

    Well, that's exactly how I feel right now. We've gotten no answers to that spot. So as I am a Jets fan and have no intentions of ever switching teams, I am going to have faith in what the HC is saying and hope that Hunter will be this big improvement. I also hold out some hope that late cuts may yield us a RT if the CS gets thumped in the head enough. That's all I've got left for hope.:(

    They went 8-8 last year.

    You went 5-11.

    I went 12-4.

    So, yeah, some of us do know better than our GM, better than some sniveling holier-than-thou judgemental posters, too.
