    The more the Jets make these moves, the more I'm convinced they're going WR early in the draft.

    Landry, Schilens, Nelson, Avery, asking the O and D to lose weight......

    We'll use our 1st on a safety or pass rusher. And hopefully we do something we never do: trade down and collect picks for once. This is a deep draft in several positions that we need.

    He's a former first round pick

    Do you ever post anything that is even remotely true, or makes sense, or is the persistent bull**** your way of posting?

    Edit: He is a former 34th overall pick.

    If I am not mistaken, The Jets put in a claim for Donnie Avery last year when he got cut. They ended up with another Rams player in Mardy Gilyard. That didn't last very long.

    Back to Avery, The Jets under Sparano are looking to stretch the field and keep defenses honest. They need deep threats in order for that to happen. Make defenses pay for having 8 men in the box to stop the run. The Jets offense last year had only 2 pass plays over 40 yards. The year before, Braylon Edwards was 6th in the entire league in pass plays over 40 yards.

    Players like Donnie Avery and Chaz Schilens are worth a flyer as #4 or #5 receivers based on their skill sets. The Jets would just be taking a flyer on a player like Avery. So I wouldn't take it as a serious signing. I am kind of surprised that the Jets aren't bringing in Ted Ginn Jr. for a visit. His absence cost the 49ers an NFC Championship and a trip to the superbowl. Mike Westhoff would have alot of fun with Ginn and he's worked with Sparano before. Plus, it would free up McKnight to concentrate on offense since there is a strong possibility that he could be the Jets next 3rd down back.

    How does that change what I said? What I said is true..he's a scrub with potential. Got cut twice. Hasn't had a decent year since he's been a rookie.

    This......

    The key is that Sparano is excellent in many was for curing the structual problems that have been assoiciated with the Jets.

    Coach Sprags has had an excellent view on how to defend the Jets as the former Miami HC. Hopefully the rest of the Jets staff is paying attention and listening.

    He isn't a scrub, he was a big part of the Ram offense, and was a big part of Bradford's success in his rookie year. He didn't get cut twice, he got hurt. Big difference.

    Good point about Ginn, would be very interested in bringing him in for a look, though I think Avery is a step in that direction. Avery can also return kicks and punts.
