    If any of our RB's go anywhere it'll be to the Eagles in deal that includes Lelie I bet. Unless the jets can offer us a good defensive player I doubt anything will result from that article

    Tatum the man

    Why is Tatum not already the starting back in BronchoLand? Is it a durability question? B/C if he's able to carry the load, then he should push 1500yards this season. Is that kind of production actually expected of an undrafted rookie?

    Browns trade Suggs to Jets for DB Strait Click here to find out more!

    NFL.com wire reports

    HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (Aug. 14, 2006) -- The New York Jets got the running back help they needed by acquiring Lee Suggs from the Cleveland Browns in exchange for defensive back Derrick Strait.

    With Curtis Martin on the physically-unable-to-perform list because of a lingering knee injury, the Jets were desperate to get another back on the roster. Derrick Blaylock and Cedric Houston were taking most of the plays at running back, but neither is the type of player who can shoulder the entire rushing load.

    Martin's future is less certain. He underwent surgery on his right knee in December, and has yet to recover fully. He has yet to practice, and reports have said he has a "bone on bone" condition in his knee. But Martin continues to rehab, and said last week he wants to play this season.

    Suggs hasn't been able to stay on the field for the Browns, who selected him in the fourth round of the 2003 draft. At various times in his pro career, Suggs has been sidelined by injuries to a shoulder, neck, toe, ankle and thumb.

    The speedy 6-foot, 213-pounder appeared in only seven games as a rookie because of a shoulder injury he sustained at Virginia Tech. In his final game that season, he ran for 186 yards and two touchdowns.

    Suggs won a starting job in training camp in 2004, but hurt his neck in the final preseason game and was inactive for the first three games of the regular season. He returned to play in seven games before missing three straight with a toe injury.

    He finished '04 with 744 yards and two touchdowns.

    Suggs hurt his ankle during the preseason last year and missed Cleveland's first two games. He dressed in Weeks 3 and 4 but injured his thumb and was inactive for six weeks.

    Suggs has rushed for 1,048 yards and four TDs as a pro.

    Strait was a third-round pick in 2004 but has been a backup in his two NFL seasons. During camp, he moved over to safety in the absence of Erik Coleman, who is out after having an appendectomy. Strait had 31 tackles last season, but has yet to notch his first career interception.

    "It's a great opportunity for Derrick," said his agent, Michael Lartigue. "They know what kind of player Derrick is. Lee Suggs is a great running back. It's a fresh start, change of scenery for both Derrick and Lee."

    Strait will bring some immediate and needed depth at cornerback for the Browns.

    Daylon McCutcheon recently underwent arthroscopic knee surgery and might not be back in time for the Sept. 10 season opener against New Orleans. Gary Baxter strained his left pectoral muscle on the first play from scrimmage Aug. 10 in the preseason opener in Philadelphia and is expected to be out 3-4 weeks.

    What injury issue would that be? He played in all but one game last season. In his rookie season his broken finger didn't keep him from being ready to play from a physical stand point.

    Looks like we missed our chance to Trade Dayne and our '07 first round pick for NY's '07 2nd round pick.

    Don't you think we need to compensate the Jet's fans for all of the Dayne fans that would invade their boards????

    you are exactly right. THere is NO injury problem from Tatum.. and there is NOOOO fumbling problem from Tatum... and I personally feel this "drastic drop off" after 12 carries thing has been completely overblown.

    How many times did Tatum get the chance to carry the ball 20-25 times a game? We can't judge his ability to carry the game based on the number of times...yet.

    I still think Tatum will be our day 1 starter.

    You're probably right about that. As long as he keeps truckin and doesn't cop an attitude. He'll be the day 1 starter, but I doubt he'll ever be a 25 carry back. He'll get spelled by M Bell or Dayne for at least 10 carries a game. And if for some reason he is not the starter...he'll spell whoever for 10 carries a game because he is so good as a COP back.

    in attempts 1 through 10, Tatum averaged 6.2 ypc. In attempts 11 to 20, he averaged 2.9 ypc.

    Quite a dropoff but you have to factor in the fact that he got a whole lot less carries in the 11 to 20 range.

    I want Tatum as our starter as much as anyone else, but he has to prove himself first.

    Still a pretty dramatic drop-off. I still think he's a starter...but probably always in a 2 back system. But if he can't get the tough yards and relies on breaking the long one from time to time to keep his ypc up, he works better as a COP back.

    Hopefully him bulking up a little this year will help some
