Yeah, Oakland is the team that went out and signed Sapp, Collins, and Ted Washington. This is a team that could add Drew Bledsoe to add youth to the team, so Jordan is really quite a young guy to them. I mean they probably have players old enough to have played football with Lamont's father.

Oakland Raiders = NFL's retirement home.

I know that Oakland has a fetish for guys 30+, but I was just trying to make a point that teams are interested in him and that he is a young player with potential.

I understood, I just felt like like making fun of the Raiders :-)

I expect Jordan to split time with another RB. Unless, he gets lucky and lands the Oakland job. I don't think he will be able to handle it though.

Travis Henry, because teams will have to trade for him, not just sign him. ;-)

There's not much reason to doubt Jordan. He's only been a bench player for a few years because of a guy named Curtis Martin. If he had played for another team (or if he sticks with the Jets for 2 more years) he would be the #1 guy.

He has played great with the amount of playing time he has been given, so the only question mark would be: Does he have the endurance to play hard for a whole NFL game? I don't see why he wouldn't.

He should be a solid player next year if he gets a chance to be someone's feature back. I wouldn't put him in the same category as the other top Free Agent RBs who have been proven starters, but I wouldn't deny his talent and value either. If I were an NFL GM who needed a RB, I would be seriously looking at Jordan.

If he signs somewhere other than new york, then yes he will have the opportunity to compete for the job.

You've already made your point that he hasn't been a starter. And we all realize that anyway. So what else can you bag on him about other than being stuck behind a hall of fame back and 26 years old?
