Calvin Pace-LB- Cardinals Mar. 2 - 10:15 am et


The NY Daily News is "hearing" that the Jets have "an excellent chance" to get free agent OLB Calvin Pace signed.

They're in direct competition with the Dolphins. Sports Illustrated jumped the gun by declaring Pace a 'Fin already. Pace hasn't decided yet.

Jesse Chatman-RB- Dolphins Mar. 2 - 9:51 pm et


The Jets will entertain free agent RB Jesse Chatman on Wednesday.

New York is said to be interested in a backup for Thomas Jones, but already has Leon Washington. Chatman may be viewed as more of a complement.

Chatman would be a nice addition. He ran the ball well for the Dolphins after Ronnie Brown went down for the season.

Eugene Wilson-DB- Patriots Mar. 2 - 10:35 pm et


In addition to the Steelers and Titans, free agent DB Eugene Wilson is scheduled to visit the Jets this week.

With Gibril Wilson and Madieu Williams off the market, the 2007 backup has become a hot commodity. Wilson's visit with Pittsburgh will happen Monday. He'll visit the Jets on Tuesday and presumably Tennessee on Wednesday.

I don't see this happening. Safety doesn't seem like a priority this offseason. We could use another CB to go along with Revis!

Damien Woody-G- Lions Mar. 2 - 11:39 pm et


The Jets are "pretty close" to finalizing a deal with free agent OL Damien Woody, according to Newsday's Tom Rock.

Woody was at Jets headquarters Sunday. It looks like he's their top choice, ahead of Chargers castoff Shane Olivea, to replace RT Anthony Clement.

Not sure if he's ever played RT before. I always thought Woody was a Center/Guard.

JETS LOOK AT UTECHT
By MARK CANNIZZARO

March 11, 2008 -- The JetsNew York Jets refuse to rest during their aggressive offseason push to improve on their miserable 4-12 season in 2007. One day after agreeing to terms with former Dolphins running back Jesse Chatman, they yesterday hosted Colts tight end Ben Utecht for a free-agency visit.

Utecht, who caught 31 passes for 364 yards last season while backing up Dallas Clark, is a player the Jets have been targeting to complement starting tight end Chris BakerChris Baker , who had his best season as a pro last year.

Utecht is non-compensation restricted free agent, meaning the Colts have the right to match any offer he receives, but if he signs elsewhere, the team he signs with doesn't owe the Colts anything in return.

An NFL source has told The Post the Colts aren't believed to be serious about re-signing Utecht, who visited the Bengals last week.

The Utecht visit comes along with news that the Jets agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Chatman, who signed with the Jets largely because of his familiarity with Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Schottenheimer was a coach with the Chargers when Chatman played in San Diego.

Chatman's versatility, an attribute that Eric Mangini loves in his players, is something that attracted the Jets to Chatman, who's a good blocker on blitz pickups, has dependable hands and plays special teams. Utecht fits that versatile category, too, having acted as the Colts' backup long snapper and punter.

"That [Chatman's versatility] is probably one of the things he's always been known best for and one of the things I know impressed a lot of the people at the Jets, that he's a difference maker on special teams," Chatman's agent, Brett Tessler, told The Post yesterday.

Tessler said he expects Chatman to compete with Leon WashingtonLeon Washington as the backup to Thomas Jones, though nothing has been promised.

I'm turning 40 this year 8-o and I honestly can't remember a more active off-season. Let's just hope they got the right pieces to the puzzle. :-o :-o ;-D ;-D
