this has to be a move on lt's part hoping to start. If he really wanted to win you would think he would have a better chance in minny with favra and chilly

it is also probably a saving fave move by the jets for letting t. jones escape for less than $3 mil/year.

if tomlinson came for less than $2.5 i'd be a bit disappointed the steelers didnt show interrest, but then again, he may have simply looking for the opportunity that afforded him the most carries plus the best chance at post season. (patriots gotta be kicking themselves).

Nice pick up for the Jets, I think he'll fit in pretty well there.

thats it right there...LT is in denial that his skills have regressed. he'll certainly steal more carries from shonn greene than he could from arguably the best back in the league at present time.plus the jets probably have a top 3 in the league oline.

this is very interresting.

the jets let jones escape for $5 mil/2 years. they sign tomlinson for $5.1 mil/2 years (with escalators that could raise it to $5.6 mil).

it looks like the jets wanted to gamble and misplayed their hand. jones was a locker room favorite, and was certainly still productive (one of the most productive backs in the past 4-5 years).

the jets can save face and say they thought they were trying to make the team better by catching a falling sword.

the way things are going with larry johnson signed for $4 mil/season, fast willie may have no choice but to come crawling back to the steelers begging for a job. (i think the texans are a darkhorse to prevent that).

You bet your ass he'll be crawling, because if we even think about re-signing that bum, I'm liable to go all Tonya Harding on him.
