Feidler is supposedly done for the year, and this will be announced today.
It appears though that, the Jets want Volek very bad. Volek is a great QB, I would argue he knows Hiemerdingers offense better than Pennington right now. Volek is smart, has a great deep ball, something Jets NEED very bad.
Heimerdinger wants Volek BAD. Rosenhaus is involved as well. With Travis Henrys suspension more money was freed up for Titan's for short term.
With this being Curtis Martin and Abrahams last year with the Jets, they need to make a good year of this, it is too early to give up on season.
Volek would be way too pricey for the Jet's to consider. The guy is not a quality NFL starting QB, and that is the price he would command. The Jet's already have Pennington locked up, they need a 1 year stopgap fill-in.
Seriously, if the Jet's make a move for Feeley, err Volek, their organization is taking a big step backwards. Giving a high pick or multiple high picks just so that they can amass an 8-8 record, miss the playoffs, and get stuck right in the middle of the first round? Smacks of desperation and will almost surely come back to bite them in the ass next year. Is the situation so desperate that they're willing to sacrifice the future (next year?!?) for a chance to be a wildcard team? That is just not smart management.
I think they pull a guy from the rummage bin (Testaverde) or acquire a guy on the cheap (Ramsey). At least that way they will have their picks for next year. I think Ramsey would get the ball downfield just as effectively as Volek would, for a quarter the cost.
