    ok, I read your post and can't help wondering....How the hell does a 7th round pick next year have anything to do with your salary cap? I realize your a Jet fan and tryin to defend your Gm, but come on, that is just idiotic.

    BTW, Tanny didn't care about the 7th rounder, it wouldn't be much ammo when it comes to trading up in the first round next yr.

    Who cares? Its a 7th round pick... You guys use anything to try and make fun of the Jets, this is completely stupid. 9 out of 10 times your 7th round pick will be camp fodder anyways. Plus you can find the same type of gems in UDFA, like the Jets may of found this year with Jammal Westerman who has been outstanding in camp for us.

    Genius? He just gave away a draft pick. That is like saying someone who jumps off the roof of a building instead of taking the stairs is a genius.

    This is a boneheaded move by the Jets and you know it. I mentioned above that yes 7th round picks hardly have success, however there is more then one way to use a 7th round pick. Say come draft day next year and there is a player the Jets really want in the 4th round. However, there are still five teams to pick in front of them. They could use that extra 7th round pick to swing a trade to move up a few spots and get the guy they want.

    The Jets won't have that luxury now.

    Come on now...if past history has taught us anything, the jets really don't value draft picks unless they are in the top 10...

    Agreed.

    Dude..... You don't even know if its a boneheaded move because you don't even know why it was given back, seriously you are getting all worked up over a 7th round pick, you are just looking for an excuse to make fun of the Jets. I can see if this was a 1st round or 2nd round pick, but a 7th?

    You'd be surprised at how valuable a 7th round pick can be.

    It has nothing to do with the Jets. If the Colts gave away a 7th round pick for nothing I would still think it was a boneheaded move. Heck, I would be upset and embarrassed if the Dolphins just decide to give away a 7th round pick and get nothing in return.
