    Looks like Strickland could be back as the #2 corner there...cut by the Chargers Thursday and Jets took him back aboard where he played for NY in 09

    LOL that's a huge drop off from Asomugha...Strickland isn't good enough to carry Nhamdi's bags to the Airport.

    Brady will be throwing to Branch all day in Don's direction.

    This is assuming Cromartie is leaving town.

    They're still supposedly in the hunt for Cro, I don't think they trust Wilson to be the #2 and would like him as an insurance policy more than the nickel cb.

    I'm surprised that the Jets let Drew Coleman go.. And to sign Strickland..Tom Brady has abused Strickland so much...

    I hope the Jets tank it on the rest of the pre-season.

    This would be akin to me buying a minivan instead of a Ferrari. Can't say I'm upset if he was their second corner.

    If Cromartie isn't back then Revis will be practically getting paid Millions just to be on the field without a lot of action because no opposing QB will be going in his direction much...they will just send the ball in the opposite direction towards a much weaker link in the Jets secondary....you would be crazy not to.

    Without Cromartie I think any team that plays the Jets would be wise to have the #2 receiver and tight ends catch much of the balls and let their #1 WR have the day off out there :cool:

    No that is reserved for the perrenial inseason Chumps. The Jets window of opportunity has slammed shut. Bye Bye Jenkins, Taylor, Ellis, Woody, Cromartie, Edwards...

    You can't make chicken salad from chicken feathers. Buh Bye Rex... Hello 7-9.

    Wilson is a slot cb for the nickel sets. I wonder if they have the cap space for Cromarte.

    It looks like the Jets are pretty thin depth wise.

    They cannot afford insurance policies. They have no depth all over the field.

    Wilson sucked in the slot position.....he was an outside cb in college, no?

    Jets keep getting worse...


    Gotta love it....

    The Jets will be a better team with Strickland plus all the holes they will fill with the Aso money than with Aso.
    Of course with Aso and all those holes they were going to really suck, so how much better is the question.

    They need an insurance policy for their season. I'm not certain anyone would write one, though.

    Anyone good enough to be a #1 rd pick in the nfl was the best outside CB on his team's roster. Given his size he projects as a slot CB in the NFL. The issue last year was he was forced to play outside during the Revis saga and never got a camp playing in his natural position bad job by Rex putting the kid in a position to fail.

    I wasn't saying they need him as one, I was saying they prefer him as one with someone better in front, because honestly, he was very unimpressive.

    My favorite part of this whole circus has been contemplating how if the Jets had spent last year's #1 pick on somebody like Devin McCourty instead of Kyle Wilson, they wouldn't have had to go through it at all. :)

    Your right, regardless of what Felger says, the Jets are top heavy and thin at backups, thats how they pay all these guys. I think thats poor cap management but Im biased to the way the Patriots do it having more depth.

    Say what you will about Strickland, he's actually pretty good covering as the nickel. Problem with him: Hurt a lot.


    They will likely pick someone else up to be the #2. There's no way they expose Wilson as a starter. It's funny how they really have no faith in Wilson.

    Jenkins and a couple others aside the Jets IR list has been much smaller that the Patriots' for the last couple of years. Perhaps the law of averages will catch up to them this year and lack of depth will plumet their season.

    Oh wait, I forgot. The Commissioner will grant them an exemption. :)

    Nnamdi would have made the Jets legitimate Super Bowl contenders, and maybe even favorites. Now, having missed out on him, they're just another team scrambling to find players.

    My understanding coming out of that draft was that Wilson's skillset projected as an elite nickel back- basically, he was ideal to cover slot guys, whereas McCourty was far better-suited to play ouside.

    That best case scenario assumes that they got acceptable JAGs to fill the position voids and had another low IR season. Depth is a real issue.

    It's an even bigger issue at their QB position. I don't want to see us playing w/o Brady, but if it happened, Hoyer and a big O-line plus a solid running game and TE packages could keep us in contention.

    The Jets? They released Marc Brunell & Kevin O'Connell yesterday. As of now, IIRC, Sanchez is the ONLY QB on their roster.

    NB: After further research, they have a 7th round rookie named Greg McElroy and another named Drew Willy who came via the Ravens, Colts and the Las Vegas Locomotives, in that order.

    Brunnell is expected back, from what I've read.

    He'll probably resign with them, but there are other teams who could also use an experienced QB as back-up. He might have some leverage to get a pay increase out of this.
