    Thanks for the sound clip.

    I agree Howard needs to be signed but I did hear he’s demanding 7M. I thought 4M would be generous for a RT so if this is true, he may be set free. We’ll see. This rebuild might be another year away if this happens. They already need to get a true LG. Mike agrees that Winters was bad there last season. I’m surprised no one has suggested he be moved to RG.
    I don’t agree on Colon. I don’t want him back. People are too enamored with his speaking out on behalf of the team. He can’t play.
    Wharton’s very old. Schwartz was pursued by the Jets last year. I agree Beadles rode the coat tails of their center Fernandez.

    No OG’s in FA IMO.

    Thanks for assessing that this OLine is not that great. It’s very true.
    The trade-up scenario may not be in play with 3 OT’s available in FA. Martin is not an elite OT for teams to climb the Jets (who no one would believe would take him).

    If wants 7 million. I am good if it is a backloaded contract. Then we only pay him if he becomes elite. If he stays middle of the pack we can cut him.

    There have been numerous OL players recently drafted by Jets: 3 last year alone.

    Could the organization (scouts & OL coaching) explain why our starting OL is like an assisted living home?
