For some reason the Redskins are enamored of the Jets roster. They have already signed guard Randy Thomas and kicker John Hall. While the Jets let Thomas and Hall depart with out much of a fight, that will not be the case with Morton. If the Jets let Morton go, special teams coach Mike Westhoff told Randy Lange they should start a "bridge watch." What Westhoff was saying is that he might jump off a local bridge if his prized returner is allowed to walk. The Jets will likely match whatever offer Morton gets from Washington. The offer can't be that outlandish. After all, the Redskins have already signed a slew of free agents. How much money can they have left for a kick returner? The Jets gambled when they gave Morton a fifth round tender ($600,000), instead of a first round tender ($1.3 million). They figured if no other team signed Morton, they could save around $700,000. Now it's likely the Redskin offer will be close to the first round tender, and the Jets will likely match it.
It looks like punter Matt Turk's job could be in jeopardy. The team is having serious talks with former Giant and Eagle punter Sean Landeta. He would love to kick for the Jets. Not only because he wants a job, but because he lives in Manhasset, NY, a town 15 minutes from Jets camp. Landeta was having a good season for the Eagles last year before his season ended do to an injury.
