    In the wake of the release of Bubba Franks, the Jets have signed free agent TE Richard Owens (6-4, 273/Louisville) today. Owens was an UDFA signed by the Minnesota Vikings in 2004, during which time he played in 39 games for the Vikings from 2004-06 before being waived and then signed by the St. Louis Rams in September 2007, where he then played in 14 games. Owens was released last summer and has been out of football ever since.

    Not a starter, Owens is largely a special teamer, and not known as a pass-catcher. Owens had a visit with the Jets and Bills back in April, but was obviously not signed at that time. The Jets seem to have thought enough of him to bring him back in and sign him to a contract with Franks now out of the picture and the draft wrapped up. Although they might not have worked a lot together, new Jets WR coach Henry Ellard would be familiar with Owens’ play from their time together in Saint Louis.

    That's the logical downward progression. From a bad team to an awful team to out of the league to the Jets.

    Just because you were all fooled by it doesn't mean you have to be little girls and complain.

    Plaudits for attempting to enliven the forum with some well placed humor.

    Maybe next time you'll succeed!

    Releasing Chris Baker and then Bubba Franks looks to me like the Jets have no interest in having a productive TE corps after Keller - Sanchez will have his work cut out in year one.

    I thought the title was quite good. It worked!!

    Like I saw 'Brady could be traded' earlier
    in the year, yet it was Brady Quinn, that worked! :)
