    SPECULATION MOUNTS THAT JETS INTENTIONALLY FLUNKED SUGGS

    In the wake of the trade that sent running back Kevan Barlow to the Jets from the 49ers, there is growing speculation in league circles that the Jets knew that Barlow was available before deciding that Browns running back Lee Suggs was not able to pass a Jets-imposed physical.

    The Jets acquired Suggs last week in a trade with the Browns, but Suggs failed the physical due apparently to a knee injury that Suggs had suffered in college -- and that had not prevented him from practicing with or playing for the Browns.

    The speculation (and we emphasize that it is only speculation) is that the Niners offered up Barlow after word broke of the Suggs trade, that the Jets then nixed the Suggs trade by finding that he had flunked his physical, and then that the Niners and the Jets opted to wait a few days before doing the deal, in order to defuse any suspicions regarding whether there was any winking and/or nodding going on between the 49ers and the Jets before the Suggs deal went down the tubes.

    Meanwhile, one league source has offered up an opinion regarding our story from earlier on Monday as to the Jets' emphasis on character guys and the decision to acquire Barlow: "If they were that concerned about high character and people, this trade that they just made really goes against that thought process." The source added that Barlow's reputation in league circles is far from stellar, and that he's not regarded as a high-character guy.

    Also, to the extent that the Jets are being perceived as doing things the "Patriots way," there are other deviations. The team's decision to circulate a depth chart with the players listed in alphabetical order is something that not even the facts-frugal Bill Belichick has ever tried to get away with.

    This whole thing with the Jets stinks and something is up with it. Suggs has been playing the entire pre-season and has been as good as ever. Yet - he failed this physical? Something is rotten in Denmark - that's for sure.

      We know what you mean.

      We tried trading Charlie Adams (our 7th string receiver or something at that point) who was going to get cut for a 6th round pick. Better something for nothing right?

      Wrong. Not according to the Cowboys, Adams failed even though he has been perfectly fine for us all season long and the offseason.

      No reason given either, and the reason for this trade is bogus.

      Seems to be the newest ***** move by GMs.
