There has been some growing chatter that a Thomas Jones for Braylon Edwards trade might have some validity for both clubs. The Browns and Jets have already shown a willingness to deal as they made the biggest splash on draft day.
Now there is an obvious need for a RB in Cleveland as they have virtually no depth. The same can be said for the Jets at WR. The Browns made a big charge for WR’s this offseason grabbing Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi, Mike Furrey, David Patten.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Browns asking price might be a little too high right now. The Jets still need to add a blocking TE as well as WR depth, so they might have to look elsewhere. Plus, Thomas Jones is the kind of veteran in the huddle who can help Mark Sanchez through some early road bumps.
I’d hate to see Jones leave, but if the Browns drop their price, Jones would most likely get the deal he’s looking for and the Jets would get there WR. Regardless, something will happen before August.
The Jets will certainly monitor Plax’s situation.
