    Rumor: Jets and Lions in Trade Talk

    Someone posted it in the Jets forum:

    John Clayton on ESPN reported that the Jets and Lions are in trade talks about sending Vilma, #25, and our late 2nd for #2 overall.

    No link as of now.


    Damn this is one exciting offseason!

    Thank Gawd there are posters willing to shoot these silly rumours down.
    Actually, the rumor was proposed like most other trades... starting with the "John Clayton just said this on ESPN..." line. It isn't unreasonable to entertain the idea, as the trade was reasonable for both teams.

    And... you can "Thank Gawd" all you'd like, but it wasn't a "poster" that shot this "silly rumor" down... it was well-known writer that actually contacted John Clayton.

    But, LOL! THANK GAWD, RITE!?

    Regardless, I doubt the Jets try and trade up anyway. It would take our whole draft + some of next year. We're bringing in Ahman Green, Chris Brown and T.J. Duckett for visits, and Nick Harper, David Bowens, and Kenyon Coleman as well. This all indicates to me that we will go offensive line in the draft again, as they are trying to shore up our other holes through free agency.
    I have no problem with that style anyway. Speculating about getting AD or CJ is exciting though.

    Vilma trade? John Clayton says he never mentioned it

    There is all kinds of talk, blogs and posts out there about ESPN's John Clayton supposedly mentioning a possible trade between the Lions and Jets that would involve Detroit's second overall pick for linebacker Jonathan Vilma and assorted draft picks.

    "What? I never said a word about it. I've never mentioned Jonathan Vilma,'' Clayton said moments ago.

    Ah, Internet rumors. At least this one got shot down before it grew into a monster.
    WOW. I posted this 3 threads into this post.

    STOP!

    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
    7 threads later we finally have sanity.. Thank you for ending this!

    Would have been an interesting trade, I think it spurred from people assuming we don't think Vilma can be a fit in a 3-4. If we traded him it would have meant that and I would not have minded the deal, but I'm glad we'll probably be giving him another opportunity in the defense.

    Well... you can't say yet that Willis will or will not be a beast. Yes, we KNOW that Vilma is a monster, but we're not sure yet if Willis (or any other MLB prospect) will be a stud.

    That being said, IF they made this trade, they would have to believe that Vilma doesn't fit. And, if they made the trade, they'd have to throw in their #25 and their late second.

    ***THIS JUST IN***
    Saw this on mlive.com:

    Bah... that sucks. (Wow... I was a bit late.)

    I like the idea just because Vilma does not fit in the 3-4 at all. . And he is the ideal tampa 2 MIKE for Marinelli
