Just some news and notes to get things going….
First, it would appear that the inevitable has finally arrived. According to a report from Kimberley Martin from “Newsday”, the Jets plan to demote to second string along the line. Rookie lineman Brian Winters will be taking his place.
And there is the unfortunate news regarding Santonio Holmes. It appears that the injury to his hamstring is not terrible serious, but he will miss a few weeks, according to several reports. To take his place, Brian Costello is reporting that the Jets will sign David Nelson today.
Neither of these are too suprising to me. Vladimir Ducasse did work his take off, but the penalties over the last couple of weeks have bene unforgivable. The Jets will put in, as I said a couple of paragraphs ago, rookie Brian Winters.
Nelson hs ability. If healthy, he is a productive player. In 2011, he did post 61 receptions, 658 yards, and five TDs. That isn’t bad, and if Tone can’t go at all, the Jets could do worse than this guy.
