Guess they aren't completely sold on Howard yet. Regardless, I've heard Jason Smith hasn't been that great either.

I'm just shocked that the Rams are even taking Hunter. Jason Smith isn't great, but I would take him over hunter. he will just be a back up if Howard was to fall apart.

May be a salary thing. Who knows. We're probably giving up a pick too.

Deal is done, per Mehta. I guess Hunter gets to reunite with Schotty.

Rams save $1.55M in salary, and we take chance on a player. It's an OK deal.

Not a bad deal. Idk how the Rams player is, but it gives us a new option to check out.

Yeah I'm not mad at all. I know Smith is bad, but atleast hes younger with some type of potential. Hunter is flat out old and done.

I called this when Smith lost his job, granted I thought he would be cut. Even if Smith blow, it's an upgrade. Hunter was a good backup, just not good enough to be a starter in the league. Smith has that raw talent, but needs to get it together.

Fingers crossed that a change of scenery benefits. That's all there is here from the Jets' perspective.

I don't know if this will be the case, but what I fear is that the increase in guaranteed salary puts the Jets off from acquiring a right tackle in a few days if one is cut that could come in and potentially start as a stop gap.

I don't have much expectation really. He'll probably play Thursday and we can get a decent look at him then.

Hunter simply needed to go. He ate dirt 5 or 6 times against the Panthers. It simply didnt matter where he lined up, he just was ineffective. HE needed to go someplace new to have any chance at salvaging his career.

He'll be used in our max protect/jumbo situations. Howard's still the starter.
