Jets Tweets

My thoughts on Golden Tate in free agency: he'll get Riley Cooper money when he deserves closer to Eric Decker money. — Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 9, 2014

Seahawks have drafted 39 players over the last four years. 49ers 36, Falcons 27, Jets 27, Jags 25, Bears 22,— Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) March 9, 2014

Source: Jets could still bring back Cromartie at a cheaper rate. However, the feeling is #NYJ is targeting another CB in free agency. — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 9, 2014

Rex Ryan on Antonio Cromartie (via statement): "Cro is one of the finest athletes I’ve ever coached." #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 9, 2014

Cromartie says he's 'open to anything' when asked if he'd play for the #Giants. #Jets — Jeff Roberts (@TheJRob) March 10, 2014

Cromartie says he's healthy: "You're going to see the Antonio Cromartie of old." Had strained hip flexor. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 10, 2014

Cromartie says Antonio Allen could be the next Ed Reed. Calls him "freakish" #nyj — Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 10, 2014

Special teamer/LB Nick Bellore receives $1.43 million tender. Jets have ROFR, receive no compensation if he leaves. Was UDFA. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 10, 2014

Taking a step back from FA, #Jets sent scouts to USF's Pro Day today. #AaronLynch— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) March 10, 2014

On Bellore: Jets have ROFR. If a team signs him to offer sheet & #NYJ doesn't match, no draft comp.Teams have inquired about him, I'm told.— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 10, 2014

On Bellore: Jets have ROFR. If a team signs him to offer sheet & #NYJ doesn't match, no draft comp.Teams have inquired about him, I'm told. — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 10, 2014

Santonio Holmes 4-year average with Jets: 36.5 recs 523 yds 4 TDs $6.56m #Patriots UDFA Kenbrell Thompkins 32 recs 466 yds 4 TDs $405K— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) March 10, 2014

Kerley on @ToneTime10: "He was nothing but a leader for me. Somebody I could look at and try to mimic my game from." — Eric Allen (@eallenjets) March 10, 2014

With Holmes gone, does that mean it's safe for Rex Ryan to name permanent captains again? Not one of the coach's finer moments. #2011— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 10, 2014

J. Kerley: "I definitely try to lead by example... If I am the guy to carry the load, I take it with pride and I take it with honor." — Eric Allen (@eallenjets) March 10, 2014

Holmes was complicated: Loved to make plays, teach up young WRs; wanted to win; rubbed some teammates wrong way; never had use for media.— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 10, 2014

The Jets roster seems stronger and they haven't added any new players yet. Funny how that works. — JetNation.com (@JetNation) March 10, 2014

With Santonio Holmes released, the Jets now have one receiver and Stephen Hill left. Lots of opportunity there.— Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) March 10, 2014

Santonio Holmes caught just 41.8% of his targets in 2013, the lowest rate of his career and 2nd-lowest rate by any player (min. 50 targets) — ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) March 10, 2014

The Jets were in South Florida today for their Pro Day, but did not have a representative at the Villanova Pro Day.— David Wyatt (@D_wyatt13) March 10, 2014

Hakeem Nicks had 896 rec yds last yr but no TDs, 2nd-most yds in a season w/o a TD catch in NFL history. Can you name the WR w/ the most? — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 10, 2014

A winner: @jcsalny, the first to say @AlToonJr. In 1991, Toon had 963 receiving yards and no touchdowns. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 10, 2014

LaDainian Tomlinson is talking about choosing #Jets over #Vikings a few years back in FA. Didn’t realize he turned down more $$ from Minny— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 11, 2014

Bucs are in the exact same spot the jets were at this exact moment last year. Trying to find a trade partner for revis — 贾斯汀 (@_keator) March 11, 2014

So Tampa Bay basically gave up a first round pick to rent Darrelle Revis for a season. OUCH— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) March 11, 2014

Rex Ryan's D is predicated on strong cornerback play. Would be surprised if Jets don't land Verner or Vontae Davis to replace Cromartie #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 11, 2014

The NFL is really stupid. Darrelle Revis shouldn't be bouncing around rosters.— M.O.C (@Jets_Depressed) March 11, 2014

The Bucs are essentially about to cut their first round pick from last year. — The System (@tealtalk) March 11, 2014

Jets get some cap space & y'all wanna sign everyone! Lol— Damien Woody (@damienwoody) March 11, 2014

the only scenario where Revis could get traded or released was if the Bucs had such a miserable season that everyone in charge got fired — Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) March 11, 2014

When was the last time Revis had a normal off season? Did he ever?— Erik from @JetsTwit (@e_man) March 11, 2014

Bucs gave up 13th overall pick and $16M for 10 months of Revis, now up for sale per @AdamSchefter. Somewhere John Idzik is smiling. — Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) March 11, 2014

if you can pay a kicker 3.5 million you can pay a CB 16 million— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) March 11, 2014

It’s ok, I’m sure Andrea Kramer will hold Darrelle and let him cry in her bosom. — Deb (@LilMissNYJet) March 11, 2014

If you are a Jet fan whining about the pick becoming a 4th take a step back b/c this was 1 of the most one-sided trades of all-time.— Craig Hoffman (@craiglaurasam) March 11, 2014

I would have paid money to be in the room when Rex Ryan heard the Bucs are going to cut Revis — Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) March 11, 2014

I guess at least the old Bucs regime had the foresight to go with no guaranteed money on the Revis deal. Still ......— Chris Burke (@ChrisBurke_SI) March 11, 2014

John Idzik, when he finds out Darrelle Revis is getting cut: "Who?" #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

In hindsight all parties would have been best off if Revis stayed with the #Jets— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 11, 2014

Irony is once Revis is a FA, he'll end up signing for same $ the Jets wouldve given him in heartbeat LAST year if he hadnt forced their hand — Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) March 11, 2014

Revis is going to have a Sanders like career where contenders just rent him out for a bit.— Ben Natan (@BenNatan2) March 11, 2014

If Revis is released, the Tampa Bay deal put him $11M ahead over playing out his contract with the Jets. — Joel Corry (@corryjoel) March 11, 2014

For #Jets fans, Darrelle Revis is kind of like an ex-girlfriend you hate but also secretly still have feelings for.— James Costanzo (@JamesCostanzo) March 11, 2014

I'm told wide out James Jones receiving heavy interest from the Detroit Lions & New York Jets...Green Bay Packers may still be in the mix.. — Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 11, 2014

Revis is a great player, and will be no matter where he goes. But I think it'll be hard to recreate what he had in New York with Rex.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 11, 2014

#Jets fans will always be fascinated by Revis because he's great and was supposed to be the career Jet that persevered through dark times — Jeff Capellini (@GreenLanternJet) March 11, 2014

I wouldn't say the Revis trade was a complete win for the Jets. CB was a big weakness for them last season w/o him.— Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 11, 2014

Also, Jets carried $13M of Revis dead money on their cap last season. They won the trade, but it still had its costs. — Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 11, 2014

Understand the business, but developed friendships along the way. Hate to see my dawg go! #tonetime — J.11 (@JKerley_11) March 11, 2014

btw, Jeff Cumberland's 3-yr deal is for $5.7M, per source. $1.0M roster bonus this yr. A $1.9M cap charge for each year. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

#Jets say despite cap $, they will be judicious w/ free agent spending looking for WRs & a corner. Still looking to build through the draft.— Brian Custer (@BCusterTV) March 11, 2014

Signing from last wk: CB Darrin Walls, who would've been a RFA, got 2 years/$1.9M, including $350k roster bonus. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

#Jets re-signed Cumberland, Walls, Lankster for total of $1.505M in gtd money, all roster bonuses. W/ so much cap room, smart to use RBs.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

#Jets re-signed Cumberland, Walls, Lankster for total of $1.505M in gtd money, all roster bonuses. W/ so much cap room, smart to use RBs. — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

#Jets area scout Cole Hufnagel was at #UConn's Pro Day today. No repeat Belichick appearance.— Eric Weeks (@eweeks28) March 11, 2014

The Jets made good moves to create cap space, but not without a price. They are paying $7.5 million for two players not on the roster. — Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) March 11, 2014

If the Cowboys cut WR Miles Austin, which could happen tomorrow, I expect the #Jets to be interested. Jersey guy. Attended Monmouth.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

One league source familiar with free agency so far: "Look for a very balanced approached from Idzik. Will add quality and depth." #nyjets— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) March 11, 2014

Lot of chatter about Jets being interested in WR James Jones. IMO, he's a borderline starter, turns 30 soon. I wouldn't pay a lot. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 11, 2014

Expect the #Jets to go after Chris Maragos. — Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) March 11, 2014

Mike T, on 98.7FM, said there are "a lot of things to like" about Geno Smith.— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) March 11, 2014

Asked a Jets source how he would feel about a possible reunion with Darrelle Revis. Response: "Hell yes!" #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 11, 2014

Tannenbaum on Geno Smith: I think Geno's arm talent fits this part of the country with the inclement weather, so there's a lot to build on— Steve Serby (@NYPost_Serby) March 11, 2014

@TheMikeDonnelly maybe they want Geno to beat out a "proven vet" to prove his own worth — Cole Patterson (@CPatterson_TOJ) March 11, 2014

@MMehtaNYDN Manish's "#Jets source" = guy at florham park facility who wheels around the gatorade cooler tied to the hand truck. — TailgateJoe (@tailgatejoe) March 11, 2014

Brooks Bollinger trade >> any trade in history. #Jets— Drew (@DrewfromJersey) March 11, 2014

League source tells me Darrelle Revis would, in fact, "love" to play for Rex Ryan and the #Jets. — Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) March 11, 2014

Source says Revis never wanted to leave the Jets and would love to be back with Rex. Biggest question: Would Woody Johnson take him? #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 11, 2014

But being aggressive in the first 110 minutes of free agency doesn't get you much, so Jets fans must give Idzik benefit of the doubt.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 11, 2014

Something to consider: If Austin Howard goes to Oakland, Jets have a big hole at RT, which would be a glaring issue if they sign Vick. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 11, 2014

Non FA tweet : #Jets were at Monmouth's Pro Day today. @TevrinBrandon6— Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) March 11, 2014

Rome wasnt built in 2.5 hours of free agency — Henry™ (@NYJetsHenry) March 11, 2014

If Idzik was overpaying JetsTwitter would be going Nuts. Idzik is taking his time. JetsTwitter is going nuts. #CantWinWithYall— Rob Carpenter (@robcarpenter81) March 11, 2014

Nick Folk's yearly cap figures, per league source: $3.6M, $2.65M, $2.75M, $3M. No signing bonus. Just a roster bonus. http://t.co/dPMkkKUJka — Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) March 11, 2014

Isn't it weird that the Jets official website is tweeting out how free agent QBs would look with the Jets when Sanchez is still on roster?— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 11, 2014

Agree with @BrianCoz ... kind of strange IMO to have a list of FAs (including QBs) on #Jets site calling them "possible fits" — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 12, 2014

I love what Idzik is doing! Sit back & let the market settle. Build this team through the draft— Damien Woody (@damienwoody) March 12, 2014

Idzik is working folks. In fact, I saw the man today. I love it how everybody wants the GM to lay out his battle plan online. #Hilarious — Eric Allen (@eallenjets) March 12, 2014

Rob Ryan has Vaccaro and Byrd? Wow. Rex has to have some serious Safety Envy looking at the slap dicks the #Jets have had to roll with.— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) March 12, 2014

Jet fans on here acting like when u get that income tax refund check in the mail.....ready to splurge! Lol— Damien Woody (@damienwoody) March 12, 2014

I'll repeat: If McCown/Vick/Schaub sense #Jets' feeling deep down is it's Geno's job to lose, could be possible they get none of them. — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 12, 2014

Jets message boarders split between "Idzik is a genius only idiots make a splash in FA" / "what's Idzik doing all this cap space no players"— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 12, 2014

Idzik's patient/long-term approach is an interesting dynamic with Rex Ryan in clear win-now mode. Will be curious to see what Jets do here. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 12, 2014

Said it last yr, and I'll say it again: #Jets made a good deal trading Revis. Can't blame them for where he ends up A YEAR LATER.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 12, 2014

Only comfort for #Jets fans if Revis goes to Pats is knowing they actually got something for him rather than letting him walk this offseason — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 12, 2014

Thousands of #Jets fans snorting cocaine like it's 1980 right now. This is what Revis does to the people. It's insane.— Jeff Capellini (@GreenLanternJet) March 12, 2014

It doesn't matter where Darrelle Revis ends up. That was still a terrific trade by the Jets considering the circumstances. — Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) March 12, 2014

Don't raise your kid to be a RB. Brutal hits, short careers, and everyone gets the same contract as Shonn Greene.— gregg rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) March 12, 2014

I know Rich doesn't like Manish personally, so he knows what he's doing by tweeting that. — Scott Salmon (@ScottSalmon48) March 12, 2014

Team Revis runs a sophisticated media game. Keep in that in mind with every tweet you read... #Jets #Patriots— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) March 12, 2014

In 2012, Revis called Belichick "a jerk" and way he treated Jets was "disrespect." Should be interesting if he ends up in NE. — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 12, 2014

Team Revis has spun this perfectly for their pockets. Halted trade possibilities and created bidding war between #Jets/#Pats when released.— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) March 12, 2014

Here are some teams who did not make big splashy FA pickups on Day 1: NE BAL GB SF SEA CIN NYJ — Spider 2 Y Banana (@gambit1154) March 12, 2014

The Jets do have an interest in RB Maurice-Jones Drew, as @MMehtaNYDN noted, if it's "at the right price," I'm told.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 12, 2014

At this rate, the Patriots are going to get Darrelle Revis and have him shadow Stephen Hill, so WHO GETS THE LAST LAUGH NOW — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 12, 2014

New #Raiders RT Austin Howard ranked 47th among 76 qualifiers in @PFF's 2013 tackle grades. New LT Saffold came in 18th among 81 guards.— Evan Silva (@evansilva) March 12, 2014

Former Jets OC Tony Sparano is Raiders OL coach, and Howard feels comfortable with him. #Jets — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 12, 2014

With the Austin Howard deal in, NFL teams have handed out over one billion dollars in contracts over the last 72 hours.— Bill Barnwell (@billbarnwell) March 12, 2014

If Austin Howard signs w/ Raiders he'll be missed..but don't blow out of proportion what he was..steady OT, nothing more..replaceable part — Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) March 12, 2014

Austin Howard was an UDFA out of northern iowa. Waived rookie year, practice squad 2nd, signed off PS in 2nd, $30 mil entering year 5.— Ian Kenyon (@IanKenyonNFL) March 12, 2014

Really happy for Austin Howard personally..great guy..& thats money no OT from Northern Iowa would ever have dreamt of getting..good for him — Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) March 12, 2014

There "wasn't a big difference" between Jets' offer and Austin Howard asking price, per source: "Idzik drew a line in the sand." #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 12, 2014

OT Breno Giacomini, scheduled to visit Jets, has 33 career starts. 9 starts in 9 games last year. 28 yrs old. 5th rounder by Pack in 08 #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 12, 2014

Wow, that's a helluva contract from OAK. Congrats to Austin Howard, but now I get why Jets weren't willing ... 5 years for 30 seems steep.— Brian Bassett (@Brian_Bassett) March 12, 2014

Pro Football Focus has Giacomini rated as 41st best tackle in 2013. Howard was 47th for some context. #nyj — Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 12, 2014

Austin Howard is a solid player, he can start at RT - but 15 million seems steep, any team offer him 10?— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) March 12, 2014

Revis would "love" to come back to Jets and "wants" to be a Pat. Believe nothing, expect anything.— Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 12, 2014

Just read our recap from Day 1 from last year's free agency, which included a "supposedly imminent" Revis trade. — gregg rosenthal (@greggrosenthal) March 12, 2014

Austin Howard's (5 yr $30 mil $15 gtd) deal to be Oakland's RT is similar to the one Gosder Cherilus signed last year 5 yr $35 mil $15.5 gtd— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) March 12, 2014

Official numbers on Nick Folk's 4 yr/$12M deal: $2.1 roster bonus in '14. Salaries: $1.5M, $2.65M, $2.75M, $3.0M, per ESPN data. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 12, 2014

Cornerback Isaiah Trufant, who spent the past four seasons with Jets, has agreed to terms with Browns, per his agent. #nyj — Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 12, 2014

Front and center headline on the top of the Jets' own website - "A Return Trip to Revis Island?" Interesting. #NFL— Dan Leberfeld (@jetswhispers) March 12, 2014

Saw a Jets scout in the background of ESPN's report from Alabama's pro day. #nyj— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) March 12, 2014

Heard #Jets RB Coach Anthony Lynn is at Oklahoma's Pro Day right now to workout Brennan Clay & Damien Williams. #nyj — Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) March 12, 2014

I was informed NY Jets had only a passing interest in Alterraun Verner/CB..made little attempt to sign him after losing out on Vontae Davis— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 12, 2014

Makes sense, Verner never made much sense since he's an off corner, not a fit. Though I wouldn't have doubted Rex if he thought it'd work— Chris Nimbley (@Cnimbley) March 12, 2014

On PFT Live, @MMehtaNYDN says he'll be "extremely surprised" if Rex Ryan remains the Jets coach absent a playoff appearance in 2014.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) March 12, 2014

Re: Idzik's cap strategy: Gave 2014 roster bonuses to Folk, Cumberland, Walls, Lankster. In essence, front-loading their contracts. #NYJ — Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) March 12, 2014

We know #NYJ has a ton of cap space for 2014 so Idzik is pushing their guaranteed money into '14 instead of spreading out the cap hits.— Chris Lopresti (@CLoprestiWFAN) March 12, 2014

New York Jets on hand for Colorado State pro-day....Crockett Gillmore?— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 12, 2014

Belichick gotta be the most overrated defensive mind in history— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) March 12, 2014

I still don't think Vick is the end-all, be-all answer for the #Jets as their backup QB. In the end, these are guys u hope never play. — Dennis Waszak Jr. (@DWAZ73) March 12, 2014

They want to sign 2 WRs RT @MMehtaNYDN: Sources: Jets have expressed a real interest in Packers WR James Jones. http://t.co/qzZ3YVUuYm— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 12, 2014

According to @FelgerAndMazz, #Jets have taken the right approach by loading up and making runs in 09-10 before re-setting over last 3 years. — PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) March 12, 2014

Besides the obvious (like Geno Smith's development), bringing in two big targets such as Decker and Jones will give Kerley a ton of space.— Connor Rogers (@Real_CR3) March 12, 2014

Heard #Jets are very high on Merrimack QB Joe Clancy. All over him at Medal of Honor Bowl & today sent scout to see him at Harvard Pro Day. — Jake Steinberg (@Steiny31) March 12, 2014

IF Phins make a respectable offer to Revis & get him, GREAT. If they raise the price & force Jets & Patriots to pay more, or move on, GREAT!— Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) March 12, 2014

Remember all the hype about how great Tampa did in the Revis trade? Uh, no.— Pete Prisco (@PriscoCBS) March 12, 2014

The Revis deal pretty much assures that Dominik never gets a GM gig again. Imagine explaining that one in an interview — Best Players Play (@TStivali) March 12, 2014

New regime in Tampa does owe debt to Mark Dominik: structure of Revis deal "pay as you go." Leaves no cash/Cap obligations behind.— Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) March 12, 2014

Here's what Revis cost the Bucs: No. 1 last year, No. 4 this year and $16 million. TB was 4-12 and GM and coach who made the deal got fired. — Gary Myers (@garymyersNYDN) March 12, 2014

Jets now have1st (#18), 2nd (#49), 3rd (#80), 4th (#100, Revis, #111) w/Revis cut. 4th rds might get pushed back a few due to Comp picks.— Dennis Agapito (@Dennis_Agapito) March 12, 2014

I just want Revis to go somewhere where he'll be used properly. NYJ, CLE, NE immediately come to mind. — Cian Fahey (@Cianaf) March 12, 2014

i'm sorry jets fans. i just can't get on board w/ calling ANY fball player 'greedy.' even revis. i'll never begrudge them trying to get paid— Kimberley A. Martin (@KMart_LI) March 12, 2014

I thank the Jets org. for believing in me and giving me an opportunity at my dream.Fans thank you. Excited to be a Cleveland brown! — Isaiah Trufant (@IsaiahTrufant) March 12, 2014

Jets source: "I hope Decker gets out of the building before Idzik gets talked into overpaying for him." #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 12, 2014

Decker 6'3 James Jones 6'1 Kerley 5'9 Nelson 6'5 Hill 6'4 — VicSanityX (@VicSanityX) March 12, 2014

Eric Decker has 24 TD receptions over the past 2 seasons Every #Jets WR has combined for 16 TD receptions over the past 2 seasons— Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) March 12, 2014

Take a second and really wrap your head around that stat. Every single #Jets WR has combined for 16 TDs over the past 32 games. Yikes. — Joe Caporoso (@TurnOnTheJets) March 12, 2014

Austin Howard Raiders deal: five years, $30 million, $11.8 million guaranteed, salaries $2.9 million, $3.9M, $4.4M, $4.9M, $5.4 m— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) March 12, 2014

But, seriously, #Jets would like two veteran WRs (Decker? Jones?), while supplementing receiving corps w/ a high draft pick. — Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 12, 2014

If Jets didn't re-up Cumberland, heard from a league source that "six to eight teams were ready to talk numbers with him." #nyjets— Kristian Dyer (@KristianRDyer) March 12, 2014

I’m not surprised to hear that teams would have been interested in Cumberland considering the FA options out there. #JustSayNoToPettigrew — Deb (@LilMissNYJet) March 12, 2014

I know Manish trolls a lot. But he gets things right once in a while. I definitely believe Idzik and Rex have reached out to Revis— Rob Carpenter (@robcarpenter81) March 12, 2014

Manish got info from TEAM REVIS all the time when he was still here, so I'm sure he got that info from their side, obviously not from Idzik.— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) March 12, 2014

To all panicking NFL fans..remember last year, weren't the 2 biggest teams in FA spending the Bucs & Dolphins? #howdthatworkout— Bob Wischusen (@espnbob) March 12, 2014

The Sons of Anarchy are back together, blessed to be back with the Jets. #Jetlife— Leger Douzable (@LegerDouzable) March 12, 2014

Cole Aldrich is starting for the Knicks tonight. This is equivalent to Will Campbell starting for the Jets. — Sean (@Boehme_NYJ) March 12, 2014

It shouldn't really come as a surprise or "news" that Revis (or any other player) loves Rex Ryan. Did nobody see that locker room video?— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) March 12, 2014

A google image search of Eric Decker brings up many photos, the majority of which are of Jessie James. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 12, 2014

A Revis reunion would change the image of the franchise for decades— Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) March 13, 2014

Former #Jets G/RT Vlad Ducasse is expected to visit the #Vikings early next week, source confirmed.— Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) March 13, 2014

If the Jets passed on one year, $12 million to bring back Revis, shame on John Idzik. That's a bargain, and they have a ton of cap room. — Bart Hubbuch (@HubbuchNYP) March 13, 2014

I don't think Revis wanted a Jets reunion. It was a transparent ploy by his camp to stimulate the market and get #Jets fans worked up.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 13, 2014

Jets feared Revis would walk right to Foxboro after contract expired in 2013. So, they traded him. 1 yr later, worst nightmare realized #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 13, 2014

The Jets managed to pull off one of the most amazing trades in recent history and still get screwed. Unreal. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 13, 2014

Giacomini will replace Austin Howard at right tackle. Smart, physical player. Probably a lot less expensive than Howard. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 13, 2014

League source re: Revis/Jets: "Jets engaged in no discussions about Revis." Adds that "no one spoke to John Idzik" about a potential deal.— Bob Glauber (@BobGlauber) March 13, 2014

Jets GM John Idzik was not part of the discussions with the Darrelle Revis camp about reunion, per source.He was not interested. #nyj— Manish Mehta (@MMehtaNYDN) March 13, 2014

Revis' talent is undeniable but his constant dissatisfaction w/ his compensation made for an unpleasant experience and drove #Jets fans mad — Cole Patterson (@CPatterson_TOJ) March 13, 2014

Revis camp discussions w/ #Jets? There were no discussions. John Idzik not involved. Believed to be a text from agent to a #Jets staffer.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) March 13, 2014

#JetsTwitter we just need to remember that it could be worse...we could be the #Bucs in this whole thing— Matt Sell (@selldit) March 13, 2014

Idzik never even talked to Revis camp, so Jets media is either making up stories or talking up low level sources. Embarrassing few days. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 13, 2014

Revis doesn't care about you. He never has. Woody's anger is deep and justified. Move on. #Jets— Jeff Capellini (@GreenLanternJet) March 13, 2014

Best way for #Jets to answer Revis deal is by focusing on improving their own team. Decker, Jones, Thurmond, Browne, draft, etc. — Corey Griffin (@cgriffin415) March 13, 2014

Idzik probably took Decker out to Applebees to show him a good time. I think that's about as wild as John gets. #Jets— Mike Donnelly (@TheMikeDonnelly) March 13, 2014

On the surface, the #Jets Decker deal looks pretty shrewd on their part.— Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) March 13, 2014

Hate the fit for Decker's skill-set, but that's a bargain for the Jets. Decker's annual average falls between Mike Williams and Hartline. — Chris Wesseling (@ChrisWesseling) March 13, 2014

So much for $9-$10m for Decker. Deal averages $7.25m (5/$36.25m, $15m guaranteed). Will make a ton in endorsements though.— PatriotsSB49 (@PatriotsSB49) March 13, 2014

The Decker deal seems to be paying him an APY right at the top of the other #2 WRs in the league. More than fair on both sides.— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) March 13, 2014

5 years $36.25 million for Decker... not as bad as I thought it might be. $15 million guaranteed. A fair deal I would say. — Thomas Melton (@TMeltonScouting) March 13, 2014

Golden Tate may have beat Eric Decker in the Super Bowl, but Decker beats him in APY by about a million a year.— Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) March 13, 2014

Decker isn't a number 1, but he's a major upgrade. Dollars are fair. Jets aren't done at WR.— Adam Schein (@AdamSchein) March 13, 2014

Immediate Decker comparison I think of is Greg Jennings to Vikings. Run first O with a poor QB. Think he's no more than a WR3 on volume — Mike Clay (@MikeClayNFL) March 13, 2014

Its a solid signing. High end number 2 money and try to draft a true 1. Last year Decker would have earned more IMO #Jets— Jason_OTC (@Jason_OTC) March 13, 2014

The Jets signed a nice No. 2 receiver

So far 26 unrestricted free agents have moved to different teams in the first 90 minutes of free agency — John Clayton (@ClaytonESPN) March 11, 2014

Agents almost always first to report years and dollars.. Don't be fooled by big numbers at first glance- agencies need the PR too — Ben Fennell (@TheXOsOfLife) March 11, 2014

No matter how many bad lessons free agency has taught us in the past (first 24 hours), the euphoria continues to grow. #NFL — Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) March 11, 2014

If Verner plays out his 4-year deal, Tampa will pay him nearly $40M less than they were scheduled to pay Revis over the next four years. — Football Perspective (@fbgchase) March 12, 2014

Misconception on contract details: "guaranteed" not interchangeable with "guarantees." A player can get cut before reaching "guarantees." — Tim Graham (@ByTimGraham) March 12, 2014

Belichick or legal weed. Yea. Legal weed. — Rob Carpenter (@robcarpenter81) March 12, 2014

Smart GMs are talking to players on 3rd/4th year of rookie contracts about extensions right now instead of jumping in deep end of FA pool — Sigmund Bloom (@SigmundBloom) March 12, 2014

Again look at the dog shit contract Verner just got as the top CB and review the $ Revis has and will make. His agents are magicians. — Drew (@DrewfromJersey) March 12, 2014

Geez, give us a break. Every reporter for every NFL team, "Spending in free agency doesn't equal success". NFL landscape is changing. Enjoy — Jayson Braddock (@JaysonBraddock) March 12, 2014

Most contenders in the NFL have an old QB right now. No point in making moves for the long term. Go all in every year until you can't. — Scott Kacsmar (@FO_ScottKacsmar) March 12, 2014

When your leverage is a "won't play" media leak it's fair to say your market is very disappointing — Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) March 12, 2014

31-year-old DeMarcus Ware gets $20 million to sign. Boy, this CBA sucks for the players. — mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) March 12, 2014

Pressure stats need context as to how quickly pressure occurred, whether or not it was blocked/unblocked, etc — Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) March 12, 2014

My favorite part of NFL free agency is local beat writers pissed that they got scooped by national guys. — Bobby Big Wheel (@BobbyBigWheel) March 12, 2014

One thing seems certain: no matter where he lands, we will be debating Darrelle Revis's status this time next year. #annualritual — Andrew Brandt (@adbrandt) March 12, 2014

Several teams did in fact consider the possibility of signing Terrell Owens but decided against it. — mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) March 12, 2014

In last 20 years, the #Chiefs have drafted 5 QBs (Steve Matthews, Steve Stenstrom, Pat Barnes, Brodie Croyle, & Ricky Stanzi) Ouch. — Benjamin Allbright (@AllbrightNFL) March 12, 2014

PLEASE understand the unused cap doesn't expire. The #Dolphins carried over $18M from last season. It carries over to the next year. — Omar Kelly (@OmarKelly) March 13, 2014

Revis was only a free agent for 4.5 hours. — Adam Caplan (@caplannfl) March 13, 2014

Must be nice to earn $12 million in one year & have people applaud you for taking #LESS money. Oh the struggle — Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) March 13, 2014

Also sounds like the Patriots are open to eventually making the marriage with Revis a longer-term one. Power move by New England, no doubt. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 13, 2014

I advocated the Patriots' tagging Aqib Talib. Never imagined they'd be able to get Darrelle Revis for less than $200,000 more. — Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) March 13, 2014

NFL physicals are so subjective.... If they like you, you can have a wood leg and pass. A "failed physical" in NFL means "nah, nevermind". — LeCharles Bentley (@LeCharlesBent65) March 13, 2014

What does failing a physical mean? A team doctor/training staff decides "we can work with your issue" or "we can’t." No hard and fast rule — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 13, 2014

Since his rookie season in 2009, Brandon Pettigrew's 37 dropped passes are the most of any TE in the NFL. — Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 13, 2014

"Address the position in the draft" = cramming for a final exam the night before — Ryan Alfieri (@Ryan_Alfieri) March 13, 2014

I will say this: Finnegan is a very interesting free agent choice for a team trying to rehab its image after the Richie Incognito incident. — Erik Frenz (@ErikFrenz) March 14, 2014

Finnegan and Beason represented themselves? With the money they got other players might be looking into their services — Khaled Elsayed (@PFF_Khaled) March 14, 2014

NFL teams have cut 10 players who were 16-game starters in 2013. Nine are in their 30s. Redskins C Will Montgomery became the 10th Friday. — Rick Gosselin (@RickGosselinDMN) March 15, 2014

@PFF_Pete @FieldGulls I don't know where that myth started, but man it's annoying. — Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 15, 2014

Re: double-teams: good coaches know how to get their best players in 1-on-1s, & bad coaches refuse to change their game plan. — Pete Damilatis (@PFF_Pete) March 15, 2014

"per source"=group text — Michael Schottey (@Schottey) March 15, 2014

Julius Peppers will count twice as much against Chicago's salary cap in 2014 as he will against Green Bay's salary cap. — Michael Rodney (@PackerUpdate) March 15, 2014

The league is signing a bunch of safeties, playing more 3-safety packages. Belichick is signing CBs, playing 1-safety packages. Ahead again? — Steve Palazzolo (@StevePalazzolo) March 16, 2014
