Jets And Edwards Still Apart

The Jets and WR Braylon Edwards are still far apart on contract talks, as the wide receiver wants a long term deal, while the Gang Green want to see Edwards to dedicate himself to the team’s offseason program and become more consistent in 2010. Edwards, who had 6 drops in regular season, caught 35 passes for 541 yards and 4 TDs in 12 games with the Jets. He is a restricted free agent and the club is expected to give him a 1-year tender offer of slightly more than $5M.

RB Thomas Jones’ future with the club remains uncertain. The team wants the veteran, who turns 32 in August, to take a paycut or be released. Jones is slated to receive a $3M roster bonus on March 9 and a $2.8M base salary in 2010.

The Jets have also begun contract talks with C Nick Mangold and CB Darrelle Revis. It's essential that the two All Pros remain with the Jets and the team wants to sign both to long term extensions.

    Having TJ for one more season would be the best move, I would think. We don't know how LW's leg will hold out, and he's not yet proven he can be a consistent coming out of the backfield. Also, it would appear that Greene might not be able to be their #1 back all year, if only due to inexperience or if he hets those niggling injuries again. And TJ was third in rushing the AFC last year! Damn!
