isn't this something? first rogers, now dwayne robertson..should we try to make a move to get him?

A deal that would've sent Jets DT Dewayne Robertson to the Bengals in exchange for fourth- and fifth-round picks has reportedly been called off.
It's the second deal for a big interior tackle Cincinnati has missed out on. It's believed the trade hinged on Robertson agreeing to a long-term contract with the Bengals. The Jets will likely continue to shop the 26-year-old.

From what I read, Robertson is due nearly 9 Million dollars in 2009, and he is unwilling to negotiate a new deal. I also read that he is a due a 3 million dollar roster bonus in June, so the chances are, he will end up getting cut by the Jets before that bonus becomes due.

That being said, i wouldnt go chasing after this guy.

We might offer a 4th , he would be great with Dorsey, but Dorsey will go to the Bengals if he is there now.


I heard 11 million, but now they will get desperate with kris jenkins on board.

We should go after Robertson I still doubt that either Ellis or Dorsey fall too us and Robertson is a solid 4-3 3technique that we need.

they'll end up paying him or trading him for squat... if he won't renegotiate i don't see how we can make a play for him

Yeah, if they were willing to ship a #4 overall to an AFC competitor for a 4th and 5th round pick...they're not high on him, and they don't want his salary.

If they don't want him that much there's a good chance they'll be forced to cut him soon.

I can't remember who the Bengals GM is, but I really hate him right now. Your incompetence is astounding. It would be great if you could actually get a trade to go through. Try again.

Not really...Dorsey and Ellis could both be available at #9 and #10, respectively. I think we will end up with Dorsey.

From PFT:

The sticking point was Cincy's insistence that Robertson re-do a contract that is set to pay him $9.8 million in 2008. Unless and until the Jets find a team for whom Robertson is willing to take a haircut, the likelihood is that Robertson eventually will be cut before a $3 million roster bonus comes due in June.
