    No I would rather see him in green then in a Pats uniform, I think the Jets and Pats will both make a run at him, and I hope the Jets run the price up enough that the Pats wont sighn him, My guess is he will be a 49er next year

    Obviously the answer is yes, just as I would like to have a 3 some with Jessica Alba and Alyssa Milano, but that too is beyond my reach. (note to self: time to get a new fantasy. damn!~)

    Adam Schefter just reported on NFL Network that the New York Jets will be making a serious run at Adalius Thomas. Mangini wants him to be the playmaker on this defense.

    He mentioned no other teams and was specifically reporting it is the Jets making the move for Thomas.

    #24 Jersey

    Which eliminates the Patriots because we all know they always make their intentions public as early and as loudly as possible.

    ====================================

    The Pats could use Thomas (big need at LB), this just goes to show that I could be right about the Jets trying to run the price up to where the Pats will not want to sighn. The Jets could use Thomas also (big need at LB).

    Why would the Pats want Thomas as an OLB?

    ====================================

    So you think the Pats are set at OLB?

    Thomas can play anywhere in the front 7, very versatile and fast.

    I hope BB feels the same way as you.

    As a Jet fan, seems to me that the Pats LB corp is getting a little long in the tooth, and is lacking in depth. JMHO.

    Yes, he can play inside,outside, and is fast enough to cover tight ends.

    Vilma, and the whold defense, will benefit big time from having a dominant player in the LB corp.

    Adalius Thomas
    Eric Barton (or Hobson/draft pick/FA)
    Jonathan Vilma
    Bryan Thomas

    That's a kick-ass group right there.

    I am not sure how he could meet with other teams. That would be tampering I believe. FA has not started yet.

    Why wouldnt they? not only is he an OLB he can play DE and ILB, Do you remember Willie Mcginest? and all the looks they used with him? Thomas is just as good at pass rushing and even better in coverage because of his great speed. Im not saying he would but he has lined up at cb and safety so the coverage speed is there:eek:

    Worst case scenario for Pats fans:

    The Jets land Thomas and trade up for Carriker.

    jets have a lot of cap space, I think. Not as much as the Pats, but still - more than you think.

    You are giving yourself way too much credit if you think the Pats are concerned about what the Jets do. The 'worst case scenarios' for the Patriots involve their own roster, not looking over their shoulder at the Jets.

    How about you come close to challenging for the division within a 4 year span before you assume the Patriots are bunkered up fearing who the Jets might sign.

    because we know that the Pats want Carriker? and lots of worse things could happen to Pats fans like Tom Brady could get someone pregnant:rofl: but seriously i dont think they are going to be too worried about who the jets get they need db help probably more than lb help

    Jets FAs= Anthony Clement and BJ Askew, and cap somewhere between 24 and 28 million dollars

    seeing as how free agency hasn't started yet I think your report about him meeting with other teams is probably false

    You are probably correct, it was reported by some talking head on NFL Network who needs to fill airtime, but the rumor makes sense that the Jets would pursue Thomas.

    You're the second person to say this. Tampering is defacto reality in the NFL today. If you are obvious about it, you can get in trouble. But its hard to be busted for tampering with a player when his agent (who represents 10 other players) has dinner with your positional coach at the combine. Especially since they almost certainly are talking generalities.

    Is there something wrong with Mike Vrabel and Rosevelt Colvin?

    For the money Thomas will garner, he's not going to be a part-time player like McGinest was.

    The last year McGinest was here he played quite a few snaps because Vrabel had to move inside.


    What would be really intriguing is that Vrabel and Thomas could lineup anywhere and flip flop inside and out confusing the defense.
