Yes, my imposed absence is done and I have learned never to use the word “loan” as a headline. And I will include mortage, work-from-home, clearance sale, Pay Pal and Nigerian Bank in that category as well.
I don’t have any recent practice pix, so I thought I’d add my friend Jenni’s Vizsla, Ruben, since he’s really cute and I saw him on my trip to Nebraska.
Since I was gone, David Clowney had a flight canceled, Jay Feely said fatherhood was the most important role he had to play and Leon Washington’s agent Alvin Keels implored everyone to finish the day strong.
The one big question is wide receiver, since Plaxico Burress may be on the market. As it stands, he could likely be penalized by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who is pretty heavy with the discipline. If the court schedule and commish allow Burress to play, he would immediately upgrade that position.
Although Wallace Wright, Brad Smith, Chansi Stuckey and Clowney have looked good at times during the optional workouts and camp, Burress is the kind of wide that takes a team to the Super Bowl. It’s a matter of how much baggage the Jets are willing to risk.
He was fined some crazy number of times by the Giants for being late and other transgressions. Is that a chemistry killer? Or is the risk worth the reward. This could be a very real question for the Jets, so what would you do if you’re Mike Tannenbaum?
