Morning Links-4/2

-The Jets will make Denver an offer for Cutler.

-The Redskins are in the mix.

-So are the Bears.

-Gary Myers throws out some gems such as saying there is more pressure in Denver than in New York and the Jets need Cutler so he can trash talk Tom Brady. Getting Brady angry: bad idea.

-Matt Stafford is coming in for a visit also. The Georgia quarterback will be long gone by 17. Gang Green would have to sell the ranch to move high enough to select Stafford. If the team is going to give up an astronomical amount for a quarterback, it will be for the proven commodity, Cutler. This seems like a smokescreen to gain leverage with Denver, but considering how many other teams are interested in Cutler, the Broncos have all the leverage.

-Alabama tackle Andre Smith is also going to visit the Jets. Smith's stock is falling after a suspension to end his college career, mysteriously disappearing at the Combine, and an ugly pro day. It is still unlikely he falls to 17. If he does, his rare combination of size and athleticism would make him an interesting option. Tackle might not be an immediate need, but Damien Woody is not getting any younger. Smith has the tools to be an elite player at either tackle spot.

-Malcolm Jenkins, the top rated secondary player in the Draft, is also working out for Gang Green. He projects well at either corner or safety. Given the newfound secondary depth, Rex Ryan could play him all over the place, but he would start out at nickel.

-Could Willie McGinest return to New England?
