Like every team, the Jets have more free agents with uncertain futures than usual this offseason.
Gang Green also has a few big names under contract that may not be back. Jason Taylor is generally expected to retire, and it’s possible the Jets won’t bring LaDainian Tomlinson back. Both the Newark Star-Ledger and the New York Daily News write Tuesday that Tomlinson is no lock to return.
A divorce would not be Tomlinson’s choosing. He said Monday that he hopes to be back in 2011 to earn the remaining $2.425 million on his contract.
Tomlinson had a nice year for the Jets overall, but the team could be concerned with his 3.5 yards-per-carry average in November-January. It’s possible the team thinks they could do better with fresh legs.
Maybe even they could go for older legs; Ricky Williams has made his interest in the Jets known.
