A report surfaced on Sunday that Adalius Thomas could be a Jet early this week, but SI’s Peter King has a source that says that’s not quite true. And the source is a good one.
“All I know is [G.M.] Mike Tannenbaum called my agent [Bus Cook]
a couple of days ago and they’re interested in maybe doing something
with me — but not until after the first game of the season,” Thomas said in King’s MMQB.
After the opener, Thomas’ salary for the season wouldn’t be guaranteed. Thomas may not love that idea, but he may not have any choice. He spoke with Rex Ryan this weekend, but it’s not like other teams are beating down his door.
“I don’t know if teams are scared off about me now or if I’ve been
blackballed,” Thomas said. “I do think there are teams out there I’d be a
good fit for — the Jets especially.”
