What a Man-Genius!
The Jets, who have certainly tried to make a lot of noise in the free agent and trade markets this off-season, are trying to trade defensive lineman Dewayne Robertson to the Broncos, according to Newsday's Tom Rock. Apparently the reason for this, according to Rock's article, is that Robertson - like the recently traded Jonathan Vilma - just didn't fit in with Eric Mangini's 3-4 defense. So this will mark the second big-name player that the Jets will trade away in a matter of weeks because neither "fit their scheme." But the question that begs to be asked is, "If this guy is such a 'Man-genius' of a coach, why wouldn't he just change the defense for two players that the Jets have been saying for years are among the best in the NFL?"
