I am so sick and tired of people misinterpreting this move. 1st off Shonn Grenne replaced TJ late last season so it makes no sense to say why would the jets cut TJ just to sign LT, and then compare yardage. LT will not be replacing TJ he will be replacing Grenne as the backup and Grenne will be replacing TJ as the starter.
And the reason the jets did not match Kansas City offer is becuase one or any combo of the following reason(s) they view LT as a more versatile #2 than TJ(catching the ball), They believe TJ needs many touches to be effective, they believe TJ was not producing well towards the end of the season and also TJ might not have been to keen to relinquishing his number 1 job to the rook.
All in all, LT is not replacing TJ, GRENNE is. LT is not get the 300+ carries TJ got during his tenure GRENNE is. LT is replacing GREENE as the #2 and GRENNE is replacing TJ as the #1. Jets like LT more as a backup than TJ and i agree becuase he is more versatile where TJ needs many touches to be effective.
