    The big difference here is Landry controlled his fate, while the fate of this TE will be controlled by whichever QB the Jets throw out on the field. Having Rex Ryan tell me that the player he benched has earned the opportunity to run out on the field to take the 1st snap once this new season minicamps begin isn't what i wanted to hear.

    You two must read the same sources. It was a torn achilles.

    On the flip side, west coast offenses rely heavily on the TE. Plus, what other O players would he really be competing with for catches?

    Would've rather stuck with Keller who I think is very under rated on this board as a receiver, obviously not as a blocker. With that said he's the best TE left on the market, 1 yr prove it deal sounds about right

    If it's between us and Buffalo it will be interesting to see his choice if $$$ is comparable or buff slightly more

    Jeff Cumberland is almost certainly returning and he made some of our biggest offensive plays last year.

    Only Wrecks said he is calling defensive signals and he will let the OC call Offensive plays. History shows that MM uses the TE is a very efficient manner. I think what WRECKS said about Sanchez taking the first snap has no bearing at this moment. With a new GM in town I strongly believe that the best QB will be our starter no matter who he is. I fully expect McElroy and Garrard to slug it out big time in camp.

    The money a good TE can make in advertising and endorsements in the NYC area will sink Buffalo.

    Fred Davis - TE - Redskins
    Free agent TE Fred Davis says he'll visit the Jets.
    The Newark Star-Ledger has confirmed the Jets' interest in Davis, but not a potential visit. Davis is scheduled to visit the Bills on Wednesday. CSN Washington predicted Sunday that Davis won't sign before mid-April, but he could have a new home before the end of this week if his visits go well.
