    WhiteShoeWillie and nyjunc seem to be the only reasonable Jets fans on the site. Well, the only decent ones I've come across.

    Sounds to me like the front office of the Jets didn't fully understand the language of the Favre trade and panicked. If there was a league technicality that prevented them from using future 1st round picks while Favre was still their property, they could have simply just RELEASED Favre before the draft. By waiting a few extra days, they panicked and lost a future 7th round pick.

    This clarification only cements the notion that the Jets made a boneheaded move.

    I realize that reading comprehension is not a strong suite on Finheaven,but they gave the pick to Green Bay as incentive to re-write the wording of the previous trade terms to take all restrictions off of any future draft picks that they may want to include in a future trade.Some of you just look for reasons to bash the Jets or ANY fans of that team.This was a good move if you have plans for something in the future that none of us are aware of at this time.Keep laughing boneheads.........

    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.
    The cap is in effect every year.Good GM's plan years ahead.
