I suppose you never know that it could actually work out but more realitsically it reeks of desperation. This really reflects the Jets' drafting woes. They had a nice run of draft picks in that era where they netted Pennington, Revis, Mangold, D'Brick, Harris, Leon Washington and the like.
But, man, in recent years, their drafts have been awful. McKnight, Shonn Greene, Sanchez, Wilkerson (he was just abused Sunday), Kylie Wilson, that softie guard from UMass, et al. Not sure if they lost some good scouts, or whether they just got lucky on some picks previously, but Good God man, that is some horrible drafting the past few years. It's obviously starting to show. They have a roster of guys who have already hit their ceiling or are in decline. That's why the Jets are decidedly in arrow down mode.
