The New York Daily News reports that the Jets will release NT Kris Jenkins, RT Damien Woody, DE Vernon Gholston, and OLB Jason Taylor.


Considering everybody's hard-on for Jets players, should we take a look at any of them?

None of the moves is surprising. Taylor, Jenkins, and Woody are all nearing the ends of their careers, and the latter two are coming off major surgery. Gholston has been one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history as the former No. 6 overall pick. All told, the four moves will save the Jets $24.33M in salary and bonuses, including Taylor's $10M offseason roster bonus. They will create room for free agent Santonio Holmes to be re-signed.

It will be interesting to see if Gholston will accept a minimum contract to play someplace else or if he will be stubborn and want a medium-sized contract.

Did Gholston ever get that sack he was after?

Jenkins pleaseONLY ... if we get a young stud NT to go with him. That way when Jenkins gets hurt the young guy can take over.

Would you line up Gholston opposite Hali? That could be interesting.

I'm sure his agent will premote minimum contract with big incentives.

I think he was just mentally soft.

He was productive in college, he had all the physical tools, by all accounts, even old-assed Gil Brandt, he was as nice of a guy as you could want, he just must have lacked that killer instinct.

Maybe that's why Ryan wanted him to fight during TC last year :shrug:. Hell, maybe he didn't really love the game.

I think loving the game is something that cannot be emphasized enough. I was watching the players at the combine running around yesterday, and I was thinking, the issue is not so much that a player CAN run a 40 in 4.xx, but rather WILL he run a 40 in 4.xx when he's on the field. I really think that's the main reason for our dominant offense back in the early 00's. Roaf, Waters, Wiegman, Shields, and Tait never became spectators on the field. They were always running, and that often created the second-level blocks that made the difference. It annoys the daylights out of me when guys jog around or walk around while the ball is still in play.

NT Kris Jenkins - I would have loved this a few years back whenever his playing days with Carolina were over. He's too old now, not to mention he's often injured, looks as if we're gonna make an effort to keep Ron Edwards around for veteran leadership and most likely Jenkins will probably gonna go to the highest bidder as it will probably be his last contract.

RT Damien Woody - He's older than Jenkins, and is currently coming off of a archilles tendon tear injury...simply put: NO THANKS. Find someone younger in FA that can be added depth or a stop gap or draft/groom one. We have very little depth on our Oline. It would be nice to add some depth there in this offseason though.

OLB Jason Taylor - No thanks, too old and he's gonna want to be on a true SB contender...we're not there yet, and his skills are diminishing as we speak.

OLB Vernon Gholston - This honestly is the only one I'd go after...he's a major draft bust I know, but he's still young and we have little LB depth as who knows whats going on w/ Cam Sheffield. Just because he was terrible at one place doesn't mean he can't turn loose and become better at another....if he can be had for a good low price, I'd go for it. If anything else it's depth. But I sure as shit wouldn't be giving this guy a lot of money. If he's asking for a lot, I'd tell him thank you for your time and leave the negotiating table.


Chicago Bears release DT Tommy Harris....can this guy make the same transition that Dorsey made? He's better than Dorsey IMO, but recently has been hampered w/ injuries. But he's young (in his prime - 27) and at one point was one of the best DL in football.

and this is why i stay out of most of the draft fights around this place.


None of us knows any of these guys well enough to know their "commitment" to the game.

Every guy who plays in the NFL has "talent" of some sort...especially if your a 1st rounder. 90% of the game is mental and "want to"

Its fun to speculate where certain players may go, and everyone has their favorites, but I dont feel the need to do so with such conviction. There is so much more to these kids, than just the ability to actually play, that we dont know about.

OUCH

Vernon Gholston had a $9 million escalator clause in his contract for one sack or forced fumble or fumble recovery. Never got it.

Can we bring in Derrick Harvey and Aaron Maybin when they are cut too?

Gholston is amazing. 0 sacks, 0 PD, 0 FF, and 0 FR in 3 years. I wonder if he ever had a TFL in his 24 solo tackles

Somewhere Jake Long is saying "stay down, bitch"
