Default 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!

So you'd lose your best defensive player in order to draft whom? AD? I can't see you guys taking CJ, though he would be a great weapon for years to come, but AD could be great.

Damn, Vilma is a monster that'd be a crazy trade. But this is probably assuming Adrian Peterson would still be there. At the Lions pick. It would be a great trade for both. Detroit picking up the best young ILB, and still having a 1st rounder. And the Jets getting an amazing RB, and Vilma isn't as effective in the 3-4

Wow...that's a steep drop in the first round. Has a team ever traded that high up before?

I thought Vilma had a down year this year too...

If thats the case and the Jets take Peterson, I really hope the Browns take Calvin Johnson.

This is definitely a trade for Adrian Peterson.

Wow, if this happens, I may just not become a Jets fan anymore. We trade away the bulk of our draft, and our defensive captain. Just wow.

I think that it would cost the jets their first and both second round picks to trade up that far. I'm assuming it's for Adrian Peterson.

Vilma isn't their best defensive player in the 3-4. If the Jets trade him it means that Mangini doesn't believe that Vilma fits his system.

If this goes through I think the Jets would be getting the better end of this deal by far.

Really, why is that? There moving to the west coact offense, which would be huge if they had a very good RB. They're reportedly keeping Moss. And they might get a vet QB.

It was mainly because of the switch from 4-3 to 3-4

They might get a vet QB to pave the way for a younger one.

Do the Jets run a 4-3 or a 3-4?

If so, I could see them maybe trying to ink a trade with Cleveland for Andra Davis... Leon Williams and D'Qwell seem to fit the 3-4 a bit better.

The only way I'd trade Vilma would be for Vilma and a 3rd for #2

Jets run a hybrid 3-4 I think.

Andra is fine in the 3-4, he gets a ton of tackles every year. We need better DL so he doesnt have to shed so much blockers and make a tackle 10 yards down field.

That's a bit ridiculous. Maybe Vilma and a high 2nd. That's a bit more realistic, but still a stretch.

They run a 3-4, which is the only reason why Vilma is even thought about being dealt.

You say that now, but when Adrian Peterson rushes for 2,500 yards his rookie campaign, you may begin to reconsider . . .

The rumor around Denver was that Detroit wanted to acquire Al Wilson, but Shanny shot that down immediately. Now the Lions appear to be going after even bigger game in Vilma... I guess they *really* want a MLB to anchor their defense.

wow this would be a huge deal, Vilma is the face of the franchise and i couldnt see him anywhere but NYJ. This trade is for All Day but the Jets have to give up a lot for him, but you never know if relations between Vilma and the Jets might not be the strongest. Trade or no trade this is still exciting stuff.

Vilma does not fit the 3-4 so I understand it partially....but that run defense was so bad last year and they would be losing their best LB. Seems kind of fishy unless they bring in a FA or two.

And it would make mocks so hard to make because I could see them taking Quinn, Peterson, or Johnson there.

I hate being "that guy" but can I have a link about this? Usually people say "John Clayton Reports. . . ." or "Adam Schefter reports. . . ." when there's a faulty news item. I remember reading on YAHOO! Answers some guy saying that Troy Aikman was coming out of retirement. Granted, this is a lot more realistic but the price for trading that high up would be ridiculous.

If so, this is obviously for AD but how would they work Leon Washington into the offense more? AD is obviously starting but how would they utilize Leon, I'm guessing like NE uses Kevin Faulk?

LOL! Most likely more than that, I could probably average 1018 yards per game with AD on Rookie.

Number 10, there run defense was so bad last year, but so was their run offense.
