idk if i am breaking any rules with this but if i am, feel free to lock this...

There have been plenty of rumors saying that the Jets are very unsure about Curtis Martin and are looking to trade for a RB. Some of the names being brought up are Chris Brown (Tennessee) and Thomas Jones (Chicago).

Personally i think we should just wait til the draft next year but it looks like that won't happen.

What will happen with this, will the Jets trade for a RB (if so who), will we wait til the draft and get either peterson or lynch (depending on where we are picking and if they are available. And if we do not trade, who do you think will start (if curtis martin is not ready).

i know the poll says draft in the 2007 draft but hopefully you are all smart enough to know that it means, draft a RB in the 2007 draft (i would edit it but i can't :( )

5th round pick for ladell betts...

5th round pick for ladell betts...

I doubt the Redskins would let Betts go for just a 5th rounder. They need insurance for Portis and it's also nice to have a spell back. Plus, the Redskins use Portis and Betts at the same time in certain formations.

I would think they may try to trade for Chris Brown. He is a young guy with alot of potential. They might be able to get him cheap from Tennessee.

i voted for current rb in the future, cuz i dont think we should trade becuase its not like we are going to be in the playoff race chris brown would be nasty, drafting a rb in 07 would be smart, but i like this kid cedrick houston he is pretty nasty.

Don't the Jets already have a ton of picks in next year's draft?

I still think that they will trade for Chris Brown. I've been saying that ever since he asked to be traded and I'm sticking to it.

Ace that sig is sweet


I think the jets should try to get a RB like Adrian Peterson or maybe Marshawn Lynch in the draft.

no, we have 8 picks, 2 2nd rounders

i would like to draft a RB, none of our current RBs can handle the load Houston is a great goalline back, Leon is to small but has potencial and blaylock isnt the anwser, and i hope we dont trade for one cause we are in no hurry to get our feartured back

I've wanted Peterson since his freshman year too, but I've got to say I wouldn't mind Brown at all and that's what I see happening. What do you guys think the Titans are going to ask for him? I'm hoping it isn't much. Seems realistic because the Titans probably don't have a ton of leverage in the deal as he wants to be gone they have plenty of depth and the Jets should trade for a back but could let the young guys get their carries and see what happens since they won't do that well anyway this year, plus he has injury concerns.

I say draft for RB. There will be some good RB's next year.

The Jets are rebuilding, it doesn't make sense to trade for a rb right now. They are better off drafting someone in 2007.

Trade for Chris Brown.

I'd try and give Washington alot of touches this season, he's got alot of potential. If he doesn't show much promise they could go running back early in the draft, although I'm personally against picking running backs in the first round unless they're very, very special.

so in the 07 draft their gonna get a QB and a RB - coz lets face it they need both

i think people are forgeting that Matrin has only once not had a 1000yd season and that was last year

I think they should draft a running back in the next years draft. There are a lot of talented RB's and depending on how high of a pick they have they could even wait until the second round to pick a guy. I really like Auburn RB's, so I would like to see the Jets draft someone like Kenny Irons. Even his name is cool.

Draft in the 2007 Draft

The Jets are going to be a good position to draft an excellent RB during next years draft. Whether they want to continue to address their O-line then they could with the first pick and go with someone like Kenny Irons in the 2nd or even Kenneth Darby.

If they traded for a RB this year I think Jones would be a good back but he is getting up there and the Jets need a young back. I think a trade for Lee Suggs would be a good trade. Then they could draft someone and have two backs that could really produce.

I say they trade for a runningback and pending his age and performance draft one also.

i think that if we could get jones or brown for anything less than a 5th or 6th rounder we should do a trade. And if we were to draft an RB next year, I would love to use a 2nd rounder on brian leonard.

Thoughts on the Jets' RB situation:

2006
Stick with the backs I have for 2006. I think Cedric Houston can play if he actually has an OL in front of him, Derrick Blaylock is an experienced veteran and is finally healthy, and the team just drafted a promising back in Leon Washington. Of course, it's even better if a refreshed Curtis Martin can return for the second half of the season from the PUP list to eventually personally pass the torch in the 2007 offseason.

Thomas Jones
Jones is not only the single trade I would actually consider, but he's a perfect fit for the team. The Bears might wait until after the 2006 season to trade him considering depth concerns, but Jones is an experienced veteran who can start as soon as he's signed to a long-term deal (necessary following the trade), be it in 2006 or 2007; I'm going forward with the expectation that the incomparable Curtis Martin doesn't play in 2007.

2007
If I don't pull the trigger on Thomas Jones, should the Bears ask for too much or what, 2007 offers ample talent at RB. Be it the draft, headlined by the foursome of Michael Bush, Kenny Irons, Marshawn Lynch, and Adrian Peterson, or the free agency period headlined by Tiki Barber (should he not stay with the other NY team) and Michael "The Burner" Turner out of San Diego. Of course, that's assuming that one of the current Jets RBs doesn't show franchise back potential.

On a side note, to those who were wondering why the Indianapolis Colts couldn't wait to draft Joseph Addai when they could on draft day and not trade down for "perceived" value, here's just one of many. Of course, I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes even more obvious once he takes the field just like other 1st round picks under GM/President Bill Polian.

For those of you who want to wait a year for you running back does that basically mean that you are willing to forfeit this year and sit through some terrible losses. Bc lets face it... if those inexperienced guys falter who are you going to turn to? Chad Pennington and his noodle arm? I ask this because this was the same thing that happened to the Niners a couple years back, their running game faltered and all they had to turn to was Tim Rattay who was also injury prone like Pennington, he got injured and you know the rest.

And what's the better option? Giving up valuable draft picks for one-year rentals when you're not going to be in playoff contention?

Better to grind it out with the talented but unproven core you already have, and get the added benefit of seeing what they are capable of before having to decide on a franchise back in 2007.

They should inquire about Mike Turner, Kevan Barlow, Thomas Jones, or Maurice Morris. Thye better get someone soon.

Brian Leonard will not be a starting RB at the next level. He'll play FB and be a situational RB most likely. He is very similar to a former player of yours, Richie Anderson, he just has more power and a bigger frame.

08-10-2006, 08:35 AM
i said draft. but i just realized that they should trade for labrandon toefield from the Jags. I here he's been having a great camp, and is looking great, but the jags are 1 over on runningbacks and he's looking like the odd man out. they'll look to trade him before it comes to this. So I wouldnt be suprised if he ended up in NY.

BJ Askew isn't the best FB out their either. It would never hurt to take Leonard if hes somehow there in the 3rd.
