        That really opens up Stewart in round one for the Broncos

            Chris Williams is their favorite OT so I don't think Clady is an option plus with 3rd rounder Harris there I think they pass on OT and go for a RB

              Sweet deal for the Jets. Getting him off the books is absolutely huge, and getting anything in return for him is fantastic. Two picks, even if they're late day 2 picks, is a great deal for Robertson. The trade up a few years back obviously doesn't look good now but this regime didn't do it. Hopefully Robertson continues to stay healthy and play through pain as he did in New York, his efforts and toughness were not appreciated because he didn't meet expectations but really should have been. I wish him all the best in Denver and hope the scheme switch and change of scenery do him some good.

                  Heres the link and story

                  http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3365432

                  "The New York Jets traded defensive lineman Dewayne Robertson to the Denver Broncos for an undisclosed draft pick or picks, ESPN.com's Bill Williamson reported Thursday.

                  Dewayne Robertson

                  Robertson

                  The Jets had agreed to send Robertson to Cincinnati on the first weekend of the NFL trading period for fourth- and fifth-round picks, but because of a knee issue he didn't pass the Bengals' physical.

                  The Broncos were close to trading for him in mid-March but talks stalled when the team suddenly fired general manager Ted Sundquist on March 12. Sundquist was the point man in the talks with the Jets.

                  Robertson's contract will have to be restructured and the Broncos have been in on- and off-again talks with his agent, Hadley Engelhard, for several weeks. Robertson is due a $3 million bonus in June and has salary cap number of about $11 million for this season. Thus, Denver would have to redo the deal to make it fiscally worthwhile, especially with the Broncos in a cost-conscious mode this offseason.

                  Robertson, 26, was the No. 4 overall draft pick in the 2003 draft out of Kentucky. He had 57 tackles for the Jets last season."

                      The New York Jets have traded defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson to the Denver Broncos for a late-round conditional 2009 draft choice, reports NFL Networks' Adam Schefter.

                        A bit surprised that's all it took, but the medical concerns and the fact that the Jets were going to move him probably limited their options.

                        All in all, a good gamble for Shanahan. I think they should still think about a DT high, but I imagine it might slide down a bit now, perhaps to their 4th rounders.

                        Looks like it's LB/RB/OT/WR for the Broncos first two picks.

                          late round 2009 conditional pick...pretty solid trade for the Broncos. Him and Thomas should form a solid duo.

                              the Jets didn't get a whole lot, i'm hoping its a 5th rounder next year, but the bigger issue for us was his influence on the cap. He has a monster contract and given the sytle of defense, it made no sense to keep him, therefore i'm happy to have gotten anything.

                              I personally always liked Robertson, he has bad knees that have really hurt his young and promising career, but he was still a gamer who didn't complain and went out and did the work that he clearly wasn't meant to be doing (see Vilma). I hope he does real well for the Broncos, and i expect him to.

                              Assuming his contract is restructured to something reasonable, i think its a good trade for both sides
