  • Chatman signs with NYJ

    http://www.miamiherald.com/breaking_...ry/450363.html



    Dolphins running back Jesse Chatman signed a one-year contract with the New York Jets on Sunday, agent Brett Tessler said.
    Chatman rushed for 515 yards on 128 attempts for a 4.0 yard-per-carry average with a touchdown in 2007.
    Very interesting. I wonder what kind of effect this will have on the draft, because I really doubt the Jets will take McFadden now. If he's still on the board and Gholston isn't I could definitely see a trade happening.

    Interesting, i think Chatman is a really underrated player. But i still wouldnt count out McFadden if he was there.

      Jesse Chatman is not a reason to not draft McFadden. Either they signed him for the chance McFadden's not there or they were never going to take McFadden in the first place.

        Ya this has no bearing on is they draft DMAC or not. Alright sign i guess R.Brown doesnt have to worry about splitting carries anymore.

          He better be a good special teams guy because that backfield is getting more and more crowded

                He just left for personal reasons. I think it was something medical because he did have some condition in which he was on multiple pills just so he could play. He had potential. Wish him the best wherever he is.

                  Just to clarify on "he left".

                  He retired. Young guy.

                    On July 26, 2007, one day before the start of training camp, Houston left the Jets for personal reasons[1]. A day later it was revealed that Houston was quitting football. Houston has returned to the University of Tennessee as a student and is finishing his degree.

                      I don't think this would necessarily have any baring on whether or not the jets draft mcfadden; it was only a 1 year deal and most likely for cheap. My idea is that they are looking for someone to compliment leon and jones, but i also have this inkling that they could be looking for a replacement for TJ if they do happen to draft mcfadden. Mcfadden/Chatman/Washington would be a pretty darn good backfield that covers your different types of runners.

                          I like sign he's a solid backup. I remember seeing him with SD in 02-03, showed some real potential.

                            If they don't draft McFadden because of this signing I would be really shocked. I think Chatman could be a solid backup and complement to McFadden.

                              I like te chatman pick up....But I think they were going to do D in the draft anyway.
