            Same here. :)
            The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

              I heard it is going to be a 2009 3rd rounder than can become a 2nd rounder with performance.

                Sounds absolutely perfect to me.

                      If we don't get a 2008 Pick I'm going to be very mad. Why would you just trade one of your top 5 guys for basically nothing?

                        but a news article somewhere on this site mentioning vilma being traded said his knee could go at any time, i hate to sour it the good trade, but im not sure if he could put up with a starting job.

                          You guys have no leverage. Everyone knows he doesn't fit your scheme. It was discussed about on these boards as soon as Mangini was hired and talk of a 3-4 defense came up. He also has a bad knee problem. And he wouldn't play like one of your top 5 guys next year in a 3-4.

                            what i posted above also is a good answer to this.

                              Sounding like a done deal...

                              A deal sending Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma to the Saints will be completed and announced as early as this morning, according to NFL sources. The teams reached a tentative agreement Thursday night, with the Jets getting a conditional draft pick, probably in 2009, based on Vilma's performance.

                              In his first two years as a Jet, Vilma seemed destined for stardom. He was NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2004 and a Pro Bowl alternate in 2005. But in 2006, when Eric Mangini became coach and installed a 3-4 scheme, .Vilma's production dropped.

                              He played seven games in 2007 before a knee injury sidelined him. Vilma had surgery to remove bone fragments from his knee in November. While he was sidelined, rookie David Harris emerged as a standout, and despite starting only seven games, he led the team in tackles.

                              Though he never publicly said so, Vilma clearly was unhappy and ill-fitted in the 3-4. He was given permission by the Jets to seek a trade this offseason. After going to the combine in Indianapolis last weekend, he met with Saints officials this week and underwent a physical with the Lions on Wednesday. He recently wrote on his blog that he can jog but is several weeks away from running at full speed.
