I do this every year. This year's new addition to the off-season tracker will be the use of daily updates to show the direction the team is going in and what rumors come about.

Do we not give New Orleans our 4th round pick (115th selection) for the Vilma trade?

Yeah, we get their third but they get our fourth. But, we still have a fourth thanks to the Redskins and Kendall trade. And their pick is higher than ours anyway.

I thought we only give them our 4th if they give us their 2nd?

Maybe, but I could have sworn I've seen reports on here that said we still give up our 4th no matter what they give up.

Oh

To my understanding it was this:

Vilma resigns with NO - Saints send their 2nd round pick to us and we send our 4th to them.

Vilma signs elsewhere - Saints send us their 3rd round pick.

Perhaps, I hope one of us can dig up the actual details of the trade. If we get to have 2 4th rounders than yippee!!! Laughing

They get our 4th no matter what. We can get their 2nd if they resign him which is unlikely.

Correction: They need to sign him BEFORE FA for us to get a 2nd round pick. Which is pretty bogus IMO. They could just wait a day into FA and save themselves a first round pick for next year. In all likelihood we are only getting a third.

If its true that we still have to give up our 4th round pick, we got robbed. Vilma was worth way more to them than a late third round pick, which is what he'd be valued at with that trade.

They have to risk letting him hit the open market though, which means someone else could sign him.

Well worth the risk IMO. If they resign him before FA they are also surrendering a first round pick for Jeremy Shockey in 2010. It basically comes down to whether or not Vilma is worth a 2010 first round pick to them, which I would certainly imagine he is not.

Vilma had played more than 85 percent of last season so thus Saints will get Jets' 2009 4th round pick. Now what pick will Jets receive from Saints is up in the air as Saints believe they will be able to bring Vilma back as free agent.


Lions and Broncos have sought for MLB help but Broncos may switch to 3-4 defense and Lions have yet to hire a new head coach. Basically, Vilma has nowhere to land for new home as Saints have thought.


Update please, Spiel.

http://www.newsday.com/sports/football/jets/ny-spwoody236009311jan23,0,7160766.story?track=rss



Boland is reporting that 5 of our coaches have left.

Quote:
The Browns announced the hirings of five assistant coaches, four of whom worked under Mangini. The former Jets coaches are Bryan Cox (defensive line), Jerome Henderson (defensive backs), Rick Lyle (assistant strength and conditioning) and Andy Dickerson (defensive quality control). Jim Herrmann, the Jets' linebackers coach the last three years, joined Tom Coughlin's Giants staff in the same capacity.




I would expect our offensive staff to remain the same largely, most of our coaching changes will all be on defense since Mangini's guys will go with him, and since Ryan will bring in his own men.
