Well, it sounds as if many Jets fans are about to get their wish, with regards to Shonn Greene.

Reports have surfaced in the last half hour that Shonn Greene, set for a workout today with the Tennessee, will not be leaving town without a contract offer, and is expected to sign with them, marking the end of the Greene era here in NY.

As I mentioned this morning, the Titans would be a great landing spot for Shonn Greene. The biggest issue with Shonn is the fact that he is not a number one back. He’s a great bruiser that can put the foot on the throat of a tired defense, even though he isn’t the fastest guy on the block. If Shonn Greene gets a job working as the backup to the speedy Chris Johnson, that oculd be a pretty lethal combination.

This is the wrong time to kick the guy. The facts are the facts, that Shonn Greene gave Jets fans some wonderful memories, none better than the 2009 TD in the playoffs against the San Diego Chargers. But his great moments were achieved while not the top guy on the chats.

So, it was time to go, and if it comes through, it will be beneficial to both teams.
