    Steven Jackson

    What do you think he would cost. He would definitely make us better for a couple years.

    Yeah...so would Percy Harvin, Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace, Welker, Osi, Bradshaw, maybe Urlacher, Woodson, Landry, and any other big name free agent you can list. THE JETS DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THEM NOR IS THE CURRENT SITUATION APPEALING FOR THEM TO EVEN WANT TO COME TO NY! They are in rebuild mode. High-priced vets are not in the cards and simply do no make sense for the Jets.

    Please just stop with this crap.

    I have a great idea.

    Let's create a new thread for every has-been who was a big name 5 years ago and talk about how he can "help" the Jets. Because, after all, the Ladanian Tomlinson, Brett Favre, Jason Taylor, Derrick Mason, and Plaxico Burress acquisitions went so well.

    No they don't every year. teams build for a couple of years and break out. They don't lose 1/2 the starters on the team that doesn't have a qb, or a #1 rb, and have thier best wr with a liz franc injury and sign a 5 mill a year rb and go to the playoffs.

    Forget all the other hyperbolic (yet very true) replies you got...

    Unless you've been an ostrich for the last 6 months with your head in the sand, then you know Jackson's looking to put a cap on his career via a 2 year stint with a contender. A win-now team. DEN. ATL. NE. aka not the JETS.

    So forget it.

    Haven't we as fans learned anything from the past?
    Leonard Marshall, Ronnie Lot, Steve Atwater, STOP IT!

    Build this team through the draft & a few select players that are already here.
    Only use FA for value.
    Only when you are close to contending do you shoot for Superbowl with a big money FA.
    There are more FAs this year then teams to fill them all.
    Only a select few teams have big money to spend, Jags, Bucs, Vikes, Fins, but that money drys up fast when you sign the likes of a Wallace.

    Sorry to say but this year the NY Jets will be like scavengers, feasting on the carcasses of FAs that no one wanted.
    But you never know how that might work out. An older vet LB to team up with Harris, Davis, Rookie might not be a terrible thing.
    As a fan I can get behind my team when they are all on the same page laying it on the line.
    What I can't stand are games like the Chargers game watching guys give up & play like complete azzwipes.

    More than we can afford.

    Plus after spending all those years with a struggling Rams franchise I would think he'd like to wind up with a contender.

    Heavy handed, that's all. Why the most expensive rb in FA? Not a guy looking for a shot like Justin Forsett for the quick type or Jackie Battle for the power back guys that would fit what the jets can pay.

    great post, The jets should be looking for pros that were underutilized or mis used in previous roles with other teams and see if Rex can fit them in and get more out of them that the previous team did.

    Build through the draft .. Play young players to see who can play ... Do not sit them behind aging vets ... Period.

    So you think it would be a good idea for the Jets to spend $30MM+ on a 30-year old RB who has 2,400 NFL carries?

    How would he make the Jets "better in the next couple of years"?

    Take them from 4 wins to 5 wins?

    No way. I would rather re-sign a 27 year old Leron Landry and build through the draft and perhaps low budget FAs.

    I think more realistic at rb would be Felix Jones. He is only 26 and would not cost too much.

    There is the correct answer.

    My response has nothing to do with Stephen Jackson

    There is no way in hell the Jets should consider the player in any way...

    I would agree with the exception of LT. Yes he was way too opionated. Still he was not a bad pick up. He played pretty well for the most part. I also agree, most of the guys people around here want us to pick up are absurd. I actually think the idea of SJ is not that crazy. He does have high mileage yes. I think if he could be brought on with a very cap friendly #. He still has enough gas in the tank to help us out short term. ( a year or two). If he wants big $ I would tell him forget it.
