    Maybe some Jets fans underestimate the value of their now former Jets players

    Sad to see yet another Jets home grown player go to another team

    Yeah, I liked Greene. But he shoulda never been the starter. He was a perfect pounder in the 2nd half of games...

    Why, because some other team decided that he would make a good backup to CJ? I think just about every Jet agreed that Greene was never anything more than a backup. What evidence do you have that Greene is anything more than the backup he was just signed to be for the Titans?

    Greene is perfect as a complement to CJ2K.

    Trouble is the Jets wanted him to BE our CJ2K.

    Exactly. He had a role and when he got away from that role he wasn't nearly as good.

    I never said he was Jim Brown

    But losing a home grown guy for what seems to be short money to me is a mistake

    Sets a bad precedence in the locker room. Most guy s want to think the team that drafts them will keep them long term

    Not only that, his value was inflated because he got so many carries... If the Jets had a legit #1 back the last 2 years, Greene might still be a Jet.

    Most guys just want a fat 2nd contract, and don't really care who gives it to them.

    Sure, if they are good. Greene is average, at best. No team in the NFL team was willing to pick him up as their starter.

    Running backs like Greene are a dime a dozen. Hes probably worth that 3 mil to the Titans but not to the Jets. Powell>Green . Basically the same back but Powell has a little xtra burst. Now a decent speed back would be worth 3 mil to the Jets. They just dont need 2 Greene's.

    Greene punishes tacklers on every run. He wears down a defense. He is a perfect RB to compliment a finesse runner like Chris Johnson. In now way is Powell the same player as Greene. They are very different players. If you want to add a speed back to compliment what the Jets have, we should have kept Greene, since he is the pounding back.

    This...Shonn Greene got way to much criticism here.He's a good back and for a smart team in the right situation he'll be an excellent pick-up

    Greene can be successful, but not as a feature back, which we foolishly tried to use him as here. Since he's going to be a complementary piece to CJ in TEN, I wouldn't be surprised if he did well.

    It sets a bad precedence in the locker room to resign players not deserving of it who have proven they can't do the job well enough. Above all else players want to win and though they will talk about how good of a team mate Greene was they will forget about him one week into the next season if we have a better back.

    What?... Powell & Greene basically the same back?...back to back 1k rushers are a dime a dozen?

    Greene didn't punish anyone, thus his stat of being the worst starter in the league at going down on 1st contact.
