  • Jets FA signings

    The Jets could announce their first free-agent signing of the offseason Tuesday after spending Monday meeting with David Bowens (Dolphins). Bowens' agent, Harold Lewis, said a deal could be in place by Tuesday. Bowens had five sacks for Miami in 2006, playing mostly defensive end. He'll likely be converted into a pass-rushing outside linebacker if he signs with the Jets . . . The Jets also met with defensive end Kenyon Coleman (Cowboys) Monday. Jordan Woy, Coleman's agent, said in an e-mail Monday night that the meeting has been "great so far"


    Bowens: OLB 6-3 265 28 yrs old
    Coleman: DE 6-5 295 27 yrds old
    QB, OG, OLB, WR, CB, MLB, RB, FS

    Exactly Why The Jets were the Coolest Team in the NFL under Rex, but Bowles is the man-see Arians speech:

          The rumor is since the Jets gave Coleman 6 Mil in guaranteed money they had inside information on his progress and projection as a starter...(The now retired Bill Parcells is very close to Mangini) he had a carreer high 4 sacks last year...

          Also there are rumors that the Jets are not only shopping LB Eric Barton but also Justin McCareins....They are trying to accumulate draft picks however some say they've shot themselves in the foot by getting TJ for such a low value pick (3rd rounder)...

          There are rumors circulating that the Jets may use the 4-3 defense more than last year because they are loading up on DEs Coleman, Bowens, Hamilton.

            hah alright well ya i just asked that question somewhere else...i was wondering if they did have some sort of inside information from parcells on this guy considering the amount of money they gave him....and i got another quick question?? why would getting TJ for such a low value pick shoot themselves in the foot for accumulating draft picks???

            i also just saw that Cowboys have offered "Marc Colombo a two-year, $7 million contract." I don't see him excepting that, for a guy of his talent especially in this weak free agency im sure he could get more. it also said he has visited with the broncos, anyone know if he has visited us or is scheduled to visit? i know we expressed interest but not sure of anything formal

              By getting TJ for less than he's worth a 3rd round draft pick trying to get a 2nd 3rd or 4th for McCareins and or Barton may be difficult. The weak relation of picks to players may have steimed the Jets plans to try and get worth or more than the worth of Barton and McCareins regardless TJ was just a good signing the "shooting in the foot" is minor and a good problem to have

                Aren't most of the DE's that we're loading up on 3-4 DE's? So why would that mean we would move to the 4-3?

                    The Jets and Raiders were reported to have interest and seem good fits.

                    not sure if this is just a little smoke screen from seattle but i dont see why theyd get rid of jeremy stevens for another TE who drops a bunch of passes hah but regardless i am excited and a bit surprised we are showing interest in McMichaels

                      They are 34 DEs but 43 DT and if we get Bowens he would be a 43 DE and Bryan Thomas would be as well. We have versatility which I like but I am more of a fan of the 34 than the 43 if and only if we have what it takes to impliment it but regardless I think our D will be completely set by the latest next season. Mangini and Tannenbaum are both shopping for the ingredients and getting them at wholesale prices, the meal they're cookin smells good I hope its ready by July and it will smell this good until February.
