With linebacker Calvin Pace expected to miss four to six weeks with a broken foot, the Jets need a replacement.
And the man who gets the first crack at providing depth on the depth chart could be former Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas.
Cimini says that, barring man boobs or a moon shot, Thomas could be a Jet within a day or so.
Thomas has been available since being cut by the Patriots in the offseason. He played for Ryan when Ryan ran the defense in Baltimore.
Meanwhile, veteran Jason Taylor will replace Pace in the starting lineup. “That’s what I do, man,” Taylor said. “I’ve been doing this a long time. It’s my job to step up and help. Can I do it? Yeah. It’s what I do.”
We wonder whether any of the reporters responded by saying, “Taylor, what the hell are you talking about?“
