Re: Jets interested in Betts?

Let's snap back to reality for just a minute. A first round offer for Betts isn't going to happen. It's just not going to happen.

A second round offer is almost as improbable. There are more proven backs out there (Thomas Jones) that could be had.

Now we're talking about a third round, and I think that's the absolute best we could hope for, but I don't even see that happening.

This trade simply isn't going to happen.

Exactly...Betts will be backing up C-Po.

We are not looking to trade betts in the first place so why would we just settle for a third. We have the chips in our favor to ask what we want so a second is not unreasonable

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

I wouldn't trade Betts for anything less than a 1st rounder which, as has been noted, is a pipe dream. We're too close, on paper at least, to the "big game" to trade a starting-caliber tailback for anything less.

"Desperation is a stinky cologne" and the Jets are fairly desperate.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

Why stop at Coles or Vilma? We might as well ask for Ellis, Ferguson, and Mangold.

These rumors are stemming from either the Jets' front office who may simply be brainstorming, trying to think of teams with great RB depth; or from the Jets' fans/media who remember the recent trades and deals between the 'Skins and Jets, and think they might partner up for a deal once again.

As soon as this issue is presented to Gibbs, I can 100% guarantee you his answer will be something to the effect of "Ladell Betts is not available."

End of story.

So in other words Ladell Betts is a franchise player? Has he ever played a full season (in a backup role I might add)? If they offered a proven offensive lineman, I would pull the trigger immediately.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

if they offer something it isn't going to be something horrible. They need someone and they went out and said they wanted betts. We have the upper hand here so i expect something closer to what we want and further from what they want to give up. I am thinking a third but i wouldn't do it for a third.

Re: Jets interested in Betts?

This is just a hope for the J-E-T-S. All I have been reading is that Saunders loves Betts. I liked Betts and his consistency in college at Iowa and he'll be on the field more now. We're not trading him but the back up RB job is heating up with the rookies. Betts is our guy if anything happens to Mr. Portis.

Betts on Jets' radar
August 11
New York Daily News (scroll down): "With Curtis Martin's career in jeopardy, the Jets are eager to see if Derrick Blaylock and Cedric Houston can do the job. If not, they almost certainly will trade for a veteran. The Redskins' Ladell Betts has emerged as a possibility."
