Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Recap

No one saw the 48 point onslaught from the New York Jets coming.  Mark Sanchez looked like the franchise quarterback the Jets thought he would when they traded up to get him.  The Sanchize threw for three scores, two to rookie Stephen Hill, and tallied 266 yards passing while going 19 of 27 above ground.  The Jets even managed to get Tim Tebow involved, giving the back up quarterback 5 carries, he gained 11 yards.

Broncos Respect the Vets : Sign Brooking and Leonhard

The Denver Broncos are serious about making a run deep into the playoffs and possibly the Super Bowl this year.  They added veteran talent on offense with the additions of Peyton Manning and Brandon Stokley, and now they’ve done it on defense.

The Broncos added former Atlanta Falcons and Dallas Cowboy linebacker Keith Brookings on Monday.  Brookings who recorded 3 starts and played in all 16 games for Dallas registering 50 tackles last season, likely will step in as the starting middle linebacker in Denver, pushing Joe Mays back on the depth chart. 

Otah Done in Carolina, Panthers Part Ways

The Carolina Panthers officially cut ties with often injured tackle Jeff Otah

Otah had been a first round pick of the Panthers back in 2008 (19th overall), but had fallen out of favor with the NFC South club.  Carolina had attempted to deal Otah to the New York Jets earlier this offseason, however when he failed to pass the teams physical exam the trade was voided.

The Panthers are still on the Salary Cap hook for just under $300,000 to Otah, however by waiving him they free up a valuable roster spot for someone who wants to play, as well as, nearly $800,000 in cap room.

Tebow: Up in the air, he’s a horse, he’s a plane, he’s a…..

The Denver Broncos and New York Jets agreed to a trade early this afternoon.  Tim Tebow was heading to Jersey with a 7th round pick for the Jets 4th and 6th rounders.  The Jets failed to do their due diligence on the deal and wound up pulling back the trade when the realized they were on the hook for 5 million dollars of money already paid to Tebow as a salary advance from Denver.

Once the trade fell through reports say both the Jacksonville Jaguars and the St. Louis Rams inquired about adding the run first quarterback.  Those reports have yet to be confirmed.

What has been confirmed is at the end of the day Tim Tebow is a New York Jet.  The two clubs have not released the full details of the trade and we don’t know yet who is responsible for the $5 million.

THE FANTASY IMPACT:

Neither Tebow or Mark Sanchez are quality Fantasy quarterbacks, and the two of them on the same team remove the strengths of each other.  Tebow may split time with Sanchez in the Red Zone which takes away the one place on the field where Sanchez showed improvement last year.  Tebow on the other hand, will no longer be on the field between the 20’s which is where he had his most success as a passer.  Rex Ryan, the Jets head coach, has long been considered a defensive mastermind; how he and the offensive coaching staff in New York will incorporate Tebow is still yet to be seen, but unless Tebow plays 15 snaps a game in the backfield as running threat his passing numbers do not give him Fantasy relevance.
