Fred Davis Never Visits, Jets Are A Hard Sell
Fred Davis never did “explore all of options” as he intended to on his free agency tour last week. The sixth year tight end would have been a nice pick up after the loss of Dustin Keller. The one year deal that Davis eventually signed with the Redskins days ago is not a tragic outcome for the Jets. Rather it is a bit of an alarming one.
The Jets are simply a hard sell to free agents for GM John Idzik right now. There is no solid ground on offense, the coach is on the hot seat, and Darrelle Revis the team’s best player may be gone by draft day.
These are grin and bear it days in terms of trying to acquire veteran pieces until the footing is a bit more solid. Plain and simple.
More Revis: More Teams Besides Tampa?
According to Rotoworld The Tampa Tribune is said to believe that “trade talks regarding Darrelle Revis could remain cool until the Bucs have a better feel for what will be available to them at No. 13.” It sounds like Tampa is more willing to deal 2014 picks.
We would like to know who else besides the Bucs are interested. The market seems unusually small for the league’s top corner. Injury or no injury. There has to be a club hiding in the weeds. Has to.
Can Sanchez rebound?
I had a close friend and fellow diehard tell me on Sunday that he would love to see Mark Sanchez shut people up and rebound in 2013. Hey, so would a lot of people. The question is, can he?
We fear that his emotional state is too fractured in New York and that the fan base may refuse to allow him even the slightest room for failure. For someone who has always needed a supporting cast, he seems to have none left whatsoever now. Maybe we are wrong.
What do you think?
