  • i think this would be a great trade for both teams. the jets get a choice of almost anyone in the draft, likely AP, and the lions get the MLB they need and some more picks to address their many needs.

    vilma was wildly inconsistent and played poorly in the 3-4. i honestly think he isnt suited for it and they should trade him now while he still has ridiculously high value.

      Now take a deep breath! This is a rumor from someone who posted it, and that person didnt even hear it.

      Has anyone even heard this even being mentioned, or heard it on ESPN? Cause i havent, and I feel like everyone is posting about nothing and nonsense!

      Not even the biggest rumor mill in the internet profootballtalk doesnt have anything about it
      PFT did mention that the Jets had been entertaining the chance of moving up yesterday night.......

      JETS CONSIDERING A TRADE UP?

      We're hearing that the New York Jets are considering an effort to trade up from the No. 25 spot in round one to the top of the draft.

      The Jets would like to get in position to draft either receiver Calvin Johnson or running back Adrian Peterson.

      To ensure that they'll get either guy, the Jets likely would have to land no lower than No. 3.

      • honestly, ill cry tears of joy if this happens. I love vilma and i hate watching him play in a system he doesnt fit. AD would be sick with the jets and they cn fill that 3-4 ILB position thru FA (Ed Hartwell) or thru the Draft in the 3rd/4th Rounds

        if this happens then i may be able to look millen in the face if were ever to meet him.

          Donnie Edwards is also a possiblity. This trade works out for both teams.

          • I think NYJets want to trade Vilma, we know he could be traded to Detroit and Washington is a real possibility. Portis for Vilma?

              That was a possibility as well, but the Skins signed Fletcher-Baker, so they must not want him, or should I say need him, as bad.

                Not one of ADs injuries are from his running style.

                That is correct comahan

                • Well, if this trade doesn't go through.. Our best move would be to trade down and pick up Patrick Willis...

                      • i'm pretty torn in this. I can't even explain how heart broken i would be if Vilma was dealt. AP is my favorite player in the draft and would love him on the Jets. but getting him and losing Vilma......i'll put it this way. Vilma did have a down year, he is undersized for a 3-4 but is still very young and just had his first year in that style of defense, i think he can pick it up. AP although amazing, is injury prone, like it or not, and do u want to give up ur defensive captian, regardless of his down year, for a RB who has had trouble making it through all but one college season (out of 3)? i'm not sold.

                        • i actually really like this trade, vilma has so much more value ot the lions than the jets, he's a good player, but alot of others play better in that system. also i think its worth for peterson, he's cant miss prospect, and he defitnaly proved it at the combine. Also if this does go down, you will see calvin johnson in cleveland

                            no its because AD has to run the ball 30+ a game.

                              Damn this is one exciting offseason!
                              i would wonder if they would give Vilma & 1st Round

                              Edit: and Curtis Martin | maybe he will come back |

                              • If the jets do this its for Calvin johnson. Why would the Jets give up their first rounder and Vilma for AP when they can give up their first and third rounder for Turner. . I would think the Jets value vilma more so than a 3rd round pick. The Jets OC worked with Turner in SD and the Jets have interest so Turner's production isnt a fluke. Also i would even venture to guess with Coles bitching about working hard toward the end of the season, and the Lions need WR help, why not offer vilma, coles and a 3rd round pick for the top pick? Grab CJ
