Uh oh. Don’t kill the messenger.

It has been reported late this afternoon that the trade involving Wayne Hunter and Jason Smith was not reported to the league by the 4 PM ET deadline. GM Mike Tannenbaum apparently was late in arriving to brief the media today, and now we apparently have the reason.

The trade isn’t guaranteed to be off, but now we unfortunately have to wait. And at the time of this post, Wayne Hunter is still officially a New York Jet.

In other news, the Jets were awarded Spencer Lanning off of waivers. He was formerly property of the Cleveland Browns. The Jets made a claim and were awarded the player. Also, injured TE Josh Baker was able to clear waivers, so that means that he reverts back to the Jets, and will be on their IR list.

We will keep you up to date with news on the Wayne Hunter situation as it becomes avaialble. Never a dull day in Florham Park.
