Deep Jet strikes again?

The leaks in and around the Jets are reaching biblical proportions.

The latest unnamed source took a shot at Jets owner Woody Johnson in today's New York Post.

"According to a highly placed NFL source familiar with the thinking of the Jets brass and who spoke only on the condition of anonymity, Jets owner Woody Johnson is "reluctant" to dole out a huge signing bonus to John Abraham.

"Woody doesn't want to pay out all that money to one player," the source told The Post. "He's still afraid of [Abraham] being injured. He feels stung by what's happened to [Chad] Pennington."

"Pennington, who's on injured reserve and rehabbing from a second consecutive rotator-cuff surgery, signed a $64 million contract before the 2004 season and, because of injuries, has played in only 16 games the last two seasons — despite already having pocketed $22 million in guaranteed money."

Who is the source? It's hard to say, but it could be the infamous "Deep Jet" who has been leaking things out of Weeb Eubank Hall the entire season.
