    I would have no way of knowing, but I'd bet it's just a money thing with the jets.
    he probably wants something like he got from the pats, but if he were to take some $1m deal for a year I'm sure the jets would take him.

    I'm sure he'll eventually take some offer for way less than he's asking.

    It's simple. He's deteriorated to the point where he's a lousy football player.

    Who cares, he is no longer a Patriot.

    And we should be looking forward not back but some people just have to get their digs into somebody. Sad people that they are.

    Did anyone expect there to be a market for Thomas after the Jets signed Jason Taylor? He will sign on with a team around training camp for one year for the veteran minimum and have to battle for a roster spot.

    I know there were a lot of people on this board who thought if he was released there would be a bidding war for the guy, but he is vocal malcontent with declining skills. Those guys aren't really in hot demand. People will put up with those guys when they can produce, but aren't interested when their skills erode (see TO).

    He'll find a home from a desperate team some time into the season

    ... which will be way to late to really be a part of anything.

    He should go out and get a couple of DUIs so the Bengals will pick him up.

    People here think everyone can be deadly with the Jets. It's an obsession with a team which hasn't been to the Super Bowl since the year Woodstock was held.

    Imagine Adalius Thomas holding the door shut while Big Ben forces his unit on a drunken co-ed yelling no no.... priceless.

    I would be one of those people. If he can't sign with either the Jets or Ravens, he won't be effective with any other team.

    Maybe T.O.,AD and Kevin Mawae should retire and all go golfing together.

    3 losers who aren't wanted

    For the right price, AD will find a home this year. The Redskins (and even the Jets) might be able to use him when his price is lowered close to the veteran's minimum.

    And she wouldn't fist-bump you, would she? She'd shake your hand.
