The Jets have a young nucleus and have added a good mix of veterans. Isn't Beck almost as old as Franks?

Im sure Bubba is 30+,but don't quote me on it,Beck is about 5-6 years younger.But if the Jets want to improve their pass protection,then he's not a bad addition,but don't expect him to catch to many balls,he's never been known for great hands.

Bubba Franks was born in 1978, making him 30. John Beck was born in 1981, making him 27. For those of you that are mathematically challenged that's 3 years difference in age. Franks is a heck of a blocker and he caught 27 touchdown passes between 2000 and 2003. It looks like the Jets got a steal for $1.6 Million.

Correct you are,I just did the research on them both,and you posted it a few moments before I could,and yes I agree he will be a big part of the Jets blocking schemes.

And now they're talking with old man Troy Brown. The jets will need to get AARP cards for their players. LOSERS!!

I'm thrilled to see these moves. Only makes things easier for the Dolphins to return to their position a top the AFC East..

That's right roger boy, the jets are a laughing stock of a franchise. ALWAYS has been- ALWAYS will be! Wake up to the reality of your suffering.
I realize you're enjoying the current Dolphins issues. This is the 1st major rebuilding of the Dolphins.

What excuse does your team have of ALWAYS LOSING year after year after year...

after year after year after year.....

Bubba Franks is a 3 time pro-bowler and a crushing blocker and great pass catcher... a tremendous addition for the Jets...

Don't be thrilled about having to face Darrelle Revis, David Harris, Kerry Rhodes, Leon Washington, Calvin Pace, D'Brick Ferguson, Nick Mangold, Jerricho Cotchery for the next 5-7 years as they're all well under 30 years old. If you knew anything at all about the NYJ, other than some idiotic comment about them, you'd realize the core of their team is very young.

My boyfriend Chadley Pennington loves to have big black boys that he can play with there balls with. Matter of fact Chadley is such a good catcher i dont know what he's doing pitching balls out there anyway.

Speaking of laughingstock, your best player is on Dancing with the Stars tonight! At least Zach made it out of his prison sentence, but then again, he has to watch the guy that's nailing his sister dancing the night away in some sequin outfit...

You got it man..garbage in ..garbage out! They give away talent (Zack thomas) and bring in Losers. Some of them even want to trade away thier best player,can you imagine if the Jets did that?
