IT is to bad,Bubba was tremendous in the red zone for that few year span ( 3-4 years) then after the big contract,his numbers went south in a hurry,although he wasnt pulling a Cledius Hunt who didnt care,bubba got injuries,people started keying on him better,because he was a very obvious choice as a target.

good move.. Across both lines (especially against teams like Dallas and the Patriots) the
Jets looked like they gave up 100 lb's per man. Size was a definite issue and Franks will catch more than Becht. In fact now they have 2 red zone TE weapons ... then again last year we thought the Defense would be better with all the signings

I dont know about that Venom. Bubba FRanks was practically non existant in the red zone the past few years with GB. He lead the league in Td for TE( or was very close) in that 3=5 year span,but after the huge contract,he disappeared and maybe 1 or 2 TD the last few years,although hes a very good blocker.Maybe the change of scenery will do him some good ,but,he was below average receiving TE the last few years.
