    That's crazy. Hunter's a 9 year vet, been cut multiple times. He can play better in a new place, but Smith can't? LOL. Dude.

    The straws, they are being grasped desperately.

    It's truly unbelievable

    And people complain about my venom with certain posters here?

    Some fans are just straight clueless.

    Hunter had his salary guaranteed, I could be wrong but the way I understood Smith's contract, he is cut able, Smith has a $500K roster bonus but other then that,,,,,


    So maybe Tanny is smarter then some think and found away to cut Turner for $500K and picked up a reclamation project at the same time.

    Give Smith a week or two to show something, if he doesn't, then cut him.

    “The more I went back and looked at where we are at as a football team and getting feedback from coaches and knowing the history of Wayne, the success that Wayne had basically as a sixth man, I have decided that is the way we are going to go,” Ryan said last Thursday.

    ROFLMAO.........

    If you had told me the Jets could trade Hunter for anything at all, I would have said you were crazy. Smith is a former #2 pick and while I wouldn't count on him to turn it around, the possibility is still there. Hopefully Howard holds onto the starting job anyway.

    "The Rams suddenly have a plethora of former Jets, including Hunter, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, quarterback Kellen Clemens, offensive lineman Robert Turner, tight end Matthew Mulligan and defensive end Vernon Gholston, New York's first-round pick in 2008."

    Wow, what's the saying? "One man's trash is another man's treasure?" I think St. Louis is taking it way too literally.

    And they took someone who, in the Jets' eyes, was a worse value than Smith.

    Regardless, we got rid of a guy who certainly tried hard, but nobody would disagree that his time here was probably up. Making the argument that Hunter has a greater chance of improving in a new environment than Smith is just wrong.

    But of course we're Jets fans, so everyone else is always 100% correct and any trade or transaction we make is bad.

    I don't get it....the $1.5 million is nothing if the change of scenery turns this guy around.

    Most definitely a gamble worth taking
    plus he's probably better than hunter and we didn't have to trade any picks

    I honestly think this trade is worth it. Hunter would be gone anyway next year. He isn't starting this year.

    There is only upside to this. Obviously the guy has "some" talent. He went number 2 overall. If it works then it's genious, if it fails then its no big deal.

    if that's true, then that's an awesome deal

    The entire team is littered with first rounders. Just goes to show u that it's not an exact science.

    5 is a little high, but Its gonna be damn close

    Stop counting another mans money...its very unbecoming. $1.55 million is nothing in the grand scheme of things for this year. Even with additions through the waiver wire, that $1.55 means little.
