Adalius Thomas To The Jets?

According to, Patriots LB Adalius Thomas would be interested in playing for Rex Ryan. LB Bart Scott said on ESPN radio that he was hanging with Thomas during the Pro Bowl weekend and Thomas "made it public that he's expressed interest in joining [Ryan]. I think some of his better years of his career have been a part of the Ravens defense and under Rex Ryan's tutelage. It'll be exciting."

Thomas, 32, did spend the first 7 seasons of his career with the Ravens before joining New England for the last 3 seasons. His numbers have steadily declined lately, as he recorded only 34 tackles and 3 sacks last season - the lowest output of his career.

It would be a shock if Thomas returned to the Patriots. But the lack of a salary cap means there is very little preventing New England from keeping him on the roster.

In a best-case scenario, the Patriots find a seventh-round pick for him. That's unlikely. In a worst-case scenario, they screw with the Jets and Thomas as long as possible.

    And how exactly would we do this? Make a trade with the PATS? I doubt it and we cant't sign him as a FA if he gets cut.

    Yes we can if he gets cut he's fair game

    No, we can't sign any FAs at all unless and until one of our FAs is signed by another team and then only for the amount that player gets from his new to be one of the final 4 this year and not have won it all.

    Unless being cut doesn't make him a FA but puts him in some other category.

    Read the sticky in forums to long and confusing to type again. Short answer players cut = able to be signed Players whose contracts have ended = not able to sign
