Thomas Jones to Jets
 
Heard it on the radio. Jones and Bears' second-round pick to Jets for the Jets' second-round pick.

Xiomera 03-05-2007 06:42 PM

we can officially kiss the vilma to detroit rumor goodbye . . .

princefielder28 03-05-2007 06:42 PM

Good pick up for NYJ, now Leon Washington can be the 3rd down back

DI 03-05-2007 06:43 PM

Yeup. Beat me to it. I believe it was Jones and Chicago's 2nd Rounder for the Jets 2nd Rounder.

49erfaithful 03-05-2007 06:43 PM

Now they wont draft a RB on Day 1 probally

The Jets 2nd rounder acquired from Washington I assume . . . not their late 2nd rounder of their own.

RaiderNation 03-05-2007 06:44 PM

good trade for both teams

BehrenMan007 03-05-2007 06:45 PM

Yea, most likelt Wash's

Space Ghost 03-05-2007 06:46 PM

That trade seems pretty good, was the pick the Jets sent their second or Washington's second, If it was their second the trade seems kind of lame, trading up 6 spots and losing a talented back... Getting Washington's second however gives them 2 picks separated by only 6 selections and gives them the ability to trade up in round one a lot easier if they want to do so to grab a top tier safety.

vilma for the saints 2nd rounder and some day two picks , i would agree

Xiomera 03-05-2007 06:48 PM

What do the Bears do now? They have two picks in the 30's . . . TE and OL?

What the hell? That was extremely random. Anyhow... with this trade, this is officially the craziest NFL off-season that I have witnessed.

bearsfan_51 03-05-2007 06:49 PM

Groovy. Jones will be the primary back in New York (which he deserves to be) and we dealt with one minor distraction. Plus we don't play the Jets for another 3 years so he won't be around to bother us.

I've been calling either Baltimore or New York for quite a while now for what it counts.

SFbear 03-05-2007 06:49 PM

It better be Wash's 2nd or we got hosed.

Knowing Angelo they'll probably trade down with one of those picks for more picks anyway.

All signs point to the Bears not needing a TE. Desmond Clark played extremely well for them last season.. my guess would OL, LB (to groom as a replacement for Briggs), and safety (Brandon Meriweather instantly comes to mind).

Michael Griffith all the way.

Tubby 03-05-2007 06:51 PM

The jets love RB's, dont they?

Flyboy 03-05-2007 06:52 PM

Damn, forgot about Griffith. Either way, the point is still there... I think a safety will be one of the targets. Mike Brown has been pure paper lately which is a shame because he's a damn good player when healthy.

Smokey Joe 03-05-2007 06:53 PM

This is a very good trade. The point value between 37 and 63 was about the value of a mid 3rd rounder, correct? Thomas Jones' value was at about a 3rd round pick, IMO.

Also, with Briggs likely to be traded, where the Bears would get an early first day pick likely, the Bears could end up with 3 picks in the 20-30's.

That's a pretty nice value for the Bears. It equals to the 67th pick (3rd pick in the 3rd round) for those that are too lazy to use the value chart. Considering that most of us were simply asking for a 3rd, a high 3rd is a pretty nice coup for a guy with only one year left on his contract.
