I dont understand why the Jets would A) Trade Vilma, the defensive ROY
or B) Only ask for a 4th round pick in return
I know all the "experts" say that Vilma is more of a 4-3 linebacker and he doesnt fit in in Mangini's 3-4 defense. But its not like he failed to perform in the 3-4! Before his injury he was right at the top of the league in tackles. He was a true warrior and its a shame they got rid of him. I know personally he was one of the true bright spots on a lackluster Jets team last year.
Which leads me to my second complaint. Why only a 4th rounder? They definitely could have gotten so much more from the Saints, or from anybody, for that matter, if they wanted to. He was the defensive ROY for God's sake! its not like they were tradinig some practice squad towel boy! Vilma was the real deal! And now who will they get? Some practice squad towel boy who wasnt even invited to the combine. They Jets couldve gotten so much more than they did for Vilma. If they had to trade him, they could have at least gotten a quality veteran in return. Thats the one offseason move I dont agree with that the Jets have made so far. (I love the Faneca/Jenkins pickups)
