Why are old Jets players always available


It seems that Jets fans always wax nostalgic to bring back former Jets players whenever there is an injury. The most recent manifestation of this is the ground swell of support to bring back players like Braylon Edwards and Joe McKnight.

It made me wonder why Jets players from the Tannebaum era seem not to get picked up by other teams. In the last eighteen months the following non-scrub players have been released, but are still looking for jobs:

  1. Braylon Edwards
  2. Aaron Maybin
  3. Robert Malone
  4. Joe McKnight
  5. Brodney Pool
  6. Sione Pouha
  7. Eric Smith
  8. Jason Smith
  9. Tim Tebow
  10. Bryan Thomas
Yes, there are some players who have landed such as Mike DeVito, LaRon Landry, Jim Leonhard and Jamaal Westerman, but most ex-Jets from the Tannenbaum era seem to be sitting on the sidelines.
Just wonder whether this is an indictment of Tannebaum's talent evaluation.
