    The Jets quietly made a run at veteran safety John Lynch before he signed with the Patriots in mid-August. Now that the Patriots released him yesterday, the Jets might make another bid to sign him.

    Lynch would be a great fit for us at least for now while MM is out.

    The Pat's are converting him to linebacker (to an extent). If you think Sharper is getting slow at their age, Lynch wasn't even fast in the first place. We could find a better backup safety.

    No way. I want to see what Tyrell can do.

    He brings years of smarts with him.
    Also, one of the hardest hitting safeties out there.
    Might be a good choice if the price is right.
    Its better to lose the first game than the last one.

    Old and Slow. I think Tyrell Johnson is gonna do a fine job for us, no worries here.

    I have no worries right now, especially if Madieu will be back in the time frame that they are saying. BUT it still couldn't hurt to bring someone like Lynch into this system that he already knows.
    He definitely could help bring some of the younger guys along, and, even if he plays behind Tyrell, could make an impact in our secondary. I personally think that if the price is right it could not hurt to bring his experience aboard.
