Btw, anyone else notice this is the second big trade between the Jet and the Panthers in less than a year? During the 07 Draft, the Jets traded up in the 1st round to get Darrelle Revis by trading with Carolina.
Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.
If Pouha develops nicely we could have 2 great NTs. One more of a pass rusher (Jenkins) and the other run stopping guy in the middle (Pouha). That'd be real nice. If we can't trade away Robertson, maybe he could work out at DE and passing downs.

Heres the real contract numbers for Kris Jenkins. Its a lot better then what was reported, he is making 6 mil a year, and is paid less then Tommy Kelly and Jenkins is a better player.
The Daily News has obtained a breakdown of Kris Jenkins' new contract with the Jets. Let's just say it's dramatically different than the five-year, $35 million deal (including $20 million guaranteed) that is being reported, courtesy of his agent.
The highlights of the ACTUAL contract:
? It's five years, $30.25 million.
? He's due to make $18 million over the first three years, the best gauge of actual value.
? Only $9.5 million is guaranteed, which is his total 2008 compensation ($4.5 million signing bonus, $750,000 base salary, $3.5 million roster bonus and $750,000 in workout/weight bonuses).
? His 2008 cap number is $5.9 million.
? In each year, there is a $500,000 workout bonus and a $250,000 weight clause. He will be weighed 10 times per season and he receives $25,000 if he makes his prescribed weight.
Clearly, the Jets are concerned about Jenkins' weight and conditioning, issues that dogged him in recent years with the Panthers. He was listed in the Panthers' 2007 media guide at 349 pounds, but as reported today by the Daily News, he weighed more than 390 pounds at the end of the season.
