Dewayne Robertson Traded To Denver

Pretty sad that the Jets took him with the 4th overall pick. Future Pro-Bowlers Terence Newman, Kevin Williams, & Terrell Suggs went 5th, 9th, & 10th respectively. :,-(

Good move though IMO. He's been a huge disappointment and that salary cap # is insane. :-?

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos acquired defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson from the New York Jets on Thursday for a conditional pick in the 2009 draft.

Robertson, the fourth overall pick in the 2003 draft from Kentucky, spent five inconsistent seasons with the Jets. He often seemed out of position in New York's 3-4 alignment.

The 26-year-old Robertson also has been bothered by knee problems.

The Broncos seems to be the most-willing taker and the Jets should just take whatever Denver offers. Like Vilma, he is terribly undersized to be a 3-4 NT and it showed last season as he was constantly manhandled off the line of scrimmage.

Depending on how he plays I think it's possible to get as high as a third round pick for him next year. Personally I think he's going to excel once he gets back to a 4-3 defense. I liked his motor and thought he played very hard for the Jets but was playing out of position. Well see how it turns out.
