So Jay Cutler and the Denver Broncos are over. Every team who doesn't have a steady quarterback should have at least a little interest, even though the way Cutler got out of Denver has to be a concern. Seriously, unless he really wanted to leave Denver, or something is going on behind the scenes, there is no reason for him to force his way out of Denver. It shows some thin skin, and who knows if that will fly in a city like New York.
At least six teams are interested in the former first round pick. The Jets, Bucs, Bears, Lions, 49ers, and Browns are all certainly interested. The Redskins and Jaguars may have some interest as well.
If the Jets are going to make a move, it's likely going to be a three way deal with someone unless Denver has fallen in love with Kellen Clemens (highly unlikely). Personally, even though I feel Clemens or Ratliff could do the job fairly well, the Jets HAVE to make a play.
Don't believe me? Look at the options at #17 in the draft. Percy Harvin? Josh Freeman? Tyson Jackson? Darius Heyward-Bey? Brandon Pettigrew? Sure, all have talent, but the question marks are far too numerous to take any in the first round. Maybe not with Jackson, but Kenyon Coleman and Shaun Ellis are solid enough starters.
I would probably give up a first, a third, and try to peddle off Clemens, too. The Jets can't give up their entire draft for him, but this draft is rather weak, so I would be more prone to giving up more picks.
What do you think? Should the Jets get Cutler? This will be a major topic of conversation tomorrow on my radio show.
