New York Jets Training Camp Day 4: Rex The Recruiter

Could remaining Jets free agents Shaun Ellis, Brodney Pool, James Ihedigbo, and Braylon Edwards return to the team?

In today's press conference, Rex Ryan expressed an interest in seeing the Jets remaining free agents return to their roster. He specifically mentioned James Ihedigbo, Shaun Ellis, Brodney Pool, and even Braylon Edwards, saying the team would love to have him back if he would return at the price the Jets were requesting. I wouldn't count on seeing Edwards return, but considering how much cap space the Jets still have, why wouldn't they do everything in their power to improve their defensive depth by bringing Ihedigbo, Ellis, and Pool all back?

There is no way Mike Tannenbaum can sit on all that cap space for long. Let's just hope they make the right decision and decide not to move Jerricho Cotchery in an effort to not free up more space. They are rumored to currently have somewhere between 10 and 11 million dollars of money still to spend, although there aren't many big name free agents left available. Outside linebacker Matt Roth is probably the last intriguing option left for the Jets, unless they look to make a trade or plan on swiping Kevin Boss from the Giants to be primarily a blocking tight end.

Also, can we stop all the Osi Umenyiora to the Jets talk? The Giants and Jets aren't interested in doing business with each other. Beyond that, the Jets aren't stupid enough to offer a first or even a second pick for Osi, especially when he is a 4-3 end and they run a 3-4.
