    Must’ve been too young for Gruden.

    I wanted to draft Walford when he came out. Go get him!

    Jets are bringing Thomas Rawls in for a visit. Not sure where he fits in, could be goodbye Powell

    Isn’t he just a worse Isaiah Crowell?

    Why on earth would they waste time bringing that stiff in? If they cut Powell to sign that stiff, it will be confirmation for me that Mac has no effing clue what he's doing. If they do that, then I expect Mac will take Nelson #3.

    Not sure the hate on Rawls. It wasn’t allll that long ago he was ripping off 180 yard games. He’s a good player just derailed by injury a bit. Would love to sign him.

    Keep signing shit RB's instead of drafting one. SMH.

    One day this franchise will learn.

    It's a smokescreen so no team will guess they draft Barkley.

    I have no hate for him, but I certainly don't have any love either for a RB whose career average ypc is 2.7. His carries and yards have gone down dramatically each of the last two seasons. http://www.nfl.com/player/thomasrawls/2553733/careerstats

    I see no reason whatsoever for the interest in this kid even if he is just 24. Powell is MUCH better and probably much faster.

    Hopefully. If they don't, the joke's on us!

    Look I know he’s a greedy bastard who we have already had many encounters with but why are we not talking to Austin Howard for a 1-2 year deal, best RT on the market. Bit old but why not protect Teddy’s knee and our future franchise QB. They seem really confident with Shell which scares me somewhat.

    I was thinking this, he looked a mini copy of Lynch and in fact was outperforming anything Lynch had done that season but then he got struck by injury himself and got left behind a little bit after a second injury the following season.

    Not that I see the need for him at the Jets atm

    If Rawls is to replace Bilal hell no! If Rawls is the 4th man behind Powell, The Crow, and McGuire ok. Another one year prove it cheap contract with incentive bonuses though.

    Hope it's just a visit and he leaves without any signed papers. Much rather draft an RB in the 3rd.

    The Lions and Ansah are pretty far apart in negotiations. I'm wondering how we could get a trade done without 2nd rounders. Wishful thinking but what a huge upgrade he would be.

    Too much money for a player that’s a 4-3 end don’t even know if he translate to a 3-4 olb. And I know we play both but would pass. Now if you want to give draft pick go try to trade for l Bell. I know he wants way too much money for rb but the way I look at it is he’s also a wr so I would give him the money he wants. He’s in his prime we have the money give like a 5 year 80 million contract with an out after 3 years in case he declines. Mine as well pay him while we can since will have a rookie qb for 5 years on low money. Think a 4th this year and a third next will get it done. Steeler will not pay him next year on tag and his demands will only get higher next year.
