    Chip Vaughn
    I like the list. A few guys I'd like to add that aren't on this one or mine are Frantz Joseph, Ramses Barden, Andre Brown, Brian Robiskie, and Mike Oher. Did that D-III QB get an invite? Because he's an interesting player as well.

    • So I knew about the Derek Anderson rumor but I just heard one about Matt Leinart. I doubt it is real but I would love to get Leinart I have always been high on him.

        I'm not so sure about Leinart. His arm especially worries me, I wonder how focused he is on the game, and he just hasn't shown much in his career thus far. I really just hope we stick with the guys on the roster, if we don't at least go for somebody who has some more experience than the guys we already have. Otherwise we're just looking at somebody who had a better reputation coming into the draft.

          He has supposedly "re-dedicated" himself to football, but that being said I don't see him being an ideal fit. Ryan mentioned wanting an "all weather offense" do we think Leinart has the arm strength to play in the meadowlands in January? His arm is stronger than Chad's but i think overall it is only average.

          • How bout Kitna being brought in...looks like he is going to be released from the Lions. I know he is a bit of a talker but would come cheaper than Leftwich et al...

              I'd be alright with Kitna on the cheap...he's a pretty cool guy with young QB's and did a nice job helping out Palmer in Cincinnati. Not sure what he'd want to do since obviously we wouldn't guarantee him a starting job but if I'd imagine he'd be alright with a competition which we could certainly provide.

              If we do sign a vet, does anybody see any way we draft somebody? Keeping 4 QB's on the roster is tough enough, but if we draft somebody that means cutting one or two of the young guys on the roster now, and I think it's early to give up on any of them to be honest.

                Keeping 4 QBs is tough, though they did for a bit last year until Ainge got hurt. I would think if they signed and drafted QBS, then one of the other two would go, hopefully in a trade. I think Clemens has some value unless he bombs in preseason and should at least get us a conditional pick.

                Unless they have no confidence in Clemens I do not see them taking a QB high in the draft.

                • I'd like to think we're not going to draft a QB too early...hopefully they don't give in to pressure if one is on the board. They didn't with Leinart so that's a good sign I guess.

                  Saw two interesting things. One is that the team is going to make finding out whether or not Clowney is legit a priority this offseason. Wonder if that has any influence in how we address WR. The other was an interview with Bart Scott where he basically made it seem like he's coming here. A little early but it was relatively interesting to read, quite candid in his answers about what he'd bring to the table and almost making it sound like he was already on the team.

                    I think it's not only a smart move, but the common sense move to see what Clowney has. There's no reason to not make everything an open competition, so to speak. See what everyone has, and if you can ball, you'll get a chance to play.

                    As for Bart Scott, it was a Jet's writer interviewing him, but it's very surprising to see him be so candid with his answers when he is still technically on the Ravens until FA starts.

                    • Here's the interview of Bart Scott that Derza was talkin about, got it over at JN from one of the guys. Quite a good read.

                      Posted Feb 18, 2009


                      Q)Could you be a Ray Lewis type leader for the Jets defense?


                      Scott: Iím a little different from Ray. I have been a vocal leader in college and things like that but Iím one of those guys that lead by example. Youíre not going to see me rallying the guys up all the time. Thatís his way. Thatís how he leads. Ed Reed is, I think, an unquestioned leader on our team as well and he leads in a different way.

                      Q)So what kind of leader are you?

                      Scott: Because of my experience in getting in the league (as an undrafted free agent), I like to push guys from the back. I like to let the young guys see me working hard and really want them to match my tempo by watching me work hard and showing up in mini-camps and seeing me in things like that where I may be the only starter in a mini-camp but I donít mind doing that because Iím used to working. So guys see me working, coming in, working and practicing.

                      Q)You really seem to a proponent of practice . . .

                      Scott: You wonít see me missing practice no matter what. Coach tries to give me a day off and I wonít take it because I feel [if] my guys have to work then I need to work too. I think thatís how guys continue to follow me and a lot of the young guys look up to me, a lot of the middle guys, because they know Iím going to play hurt, Iím going to play injured and like I say, ĎAlways get me up to my feet.í

                      Q)So what can you bring to the Jets?

                      Scott: I can go to the Jets and I can set a tempo. I have some unique things to my game thatís unique to just Bart Scott that everybody else canít do. You donít have to take me out. You can put me over the tight end, it doesnít matter. You can put me on tight end. You can take me out of the box. You can leave me in the box. Every linebacker canít say that. Some guys are just pass-defensive linebackers. Some guys are guys who specialize in stopping the run if you want to go back to the Trotters and things like that. You can put me in any situation, Iíll flourish. It doesnít matter to me.

                      Q)What is Rex going to bring to the Jets?

                      Scott: First of all, youíre going to see guys be held accountable. Now the whole teamís accountable. No guy can hide under a rock. We always said you had to have tough skin, you had to have skin like an armadillo because if you let the team down youíre going to have to pay for it. Youíre going to have to answer [for] it. A lot of times guys think that guys would have to answer to Ray Lewis. No, we had to answer to each other. And that was instilled, period. And it starts from Rex.

                      If weíre going to be great itís going to take all of us. Youíre going to watch the film together and if youíre the guy on the film that is letting guys down thatís the loneliest feeling in the world when they say, ĎThis big play happened because look at the effort here.í You canít coach effort.

                      Q)So some guys aren't going to make the cut?

                      Scott: Heíll weed those guys out that are not willing to play 100 percent all the time. So thatís what you can expect. You can expect some hard-nosed [football], knocking guys out, not backing down from anybody, ever.

                      Q)If you come to the Jets, how quickly can you become a leader?


                      Scott: I think theyíve got a lot of great guys already. Theyíve got some leaders already over there. Kris Jenkins and youíve got Kerry Rhodes so youíve already got pieces involved. Now youíve got to take the young guys under the wing, put him under there and stay on his butt every day.

                      Q)They do need a weak-side inside linebacker in that defense . . .

                      Scott: Exactly. I can go in there and I can guarantee all that running coming up the middle, thatíll stop.

                      • Come to us Bart...COME TO US!!!!. With him next to Harris that would be a nice front 7. And if we get Leonhard then I wouldnt mind going DE in the 1st.

                          I agree with Leonhard, I think he will come fairly cheap as well. Scott may cost a bit but he is probably worth it.

                          • The good thing about LBs is that they really aren't that expensive either. I think we can get Scott for 4-5 mil/year which really isn't THAT bad. I'd love to bring him in. Not as high on Leonhard as everyone else, though.

                              I kind of agree on both things. I think Scott brings a nice swagger to the defense, can set the tone for what Rex wants, and fills a big hole. As much as I'd love to draft a guy I don't see somebody who fits the scheme and isn't awful in coverage...I think we're going to have a hard time finding a fit going the draft route.

                              With Leonhard I think he'd be a nice get on the cheap, but I'd probably rather draft somebody. We may have to trade up a bit or slide back in the first and reach, but I think there are some really, really nice fits for us at safety in this draft.

                              • Oh and I hope the NY media doesn't follow Scott Wright's lead and try and push for the positions he listed as our actual needs. I pray they're on the WR/S bandwagon (though I sort of assume Rex will do what Rex does).
