    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.

    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.

    I'm surprised hes not with the Jets, or any team for that matter.


    I guess teams saw the same highlight I did where he got stonewall blocked by Garrard and he had a full head of steam.

    He didn't have a good attitude, but i think his problem is simpler than that. We signed him when he was 29 years old. His best years were on the Ravens.

    He got older and slower. He was always known for his speed, and it went.

    He wants a big money deal and his skills aren't what they used to be. It's really no suprise that there isn't a big market out there for his services. I'd imagine if he lowered his asking price, the market for his services would suddenly get a lot better.

    Well, Rex Ryan did say that the Jets are waiting the market to be set for Thomas before they consider pursuing him. It is quite clear he meant that they want to make sure the market is set so they don't underpay him and screw him over. Yes, they could get him for a song now, but is that really fair for Thomas and Jets want to look out for Thomas' best interest.

    Seriously, has any free agent ever been signed in training camp for much more than an one to two year deal for around the veteran minimum and modest signing bonuses and/or incentives. Any free agent who pulls themselves off the market until training camp either know they aren't going to get more than that and figure they might as well avoid offseason OTAs or are one of the dumbest people on the planet.

    No way does Thomas get a good deal in training camp. If he gets anything other than a very modest deal it will be in the next few weeks. Considering there is no action on the guy, it is doubtful.

    How could a team not want a washed up, malcontent, has-been? I mean look how well it worked out for the Vikings last year, I mean you know if you don't count him throwing the Superbowl away.
