Brandon Gibson leaves Jets visit without a deal

The Jets continue to watch guys walk out the door.

But instead of one of their own free agents, this time it’s a visitor.

According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Gibson left without a deal after his visit with the Jets. Gibson’s now headed to see the Dolphins and the Titans.

The Rams free agent had a good season last year (51 catches for 691 yards and five touchdowns), and would be a solid second option for any of those teams.

    Many Dolphins fans won’t like this but I can see the Dolphins signing Gibson, moving Hartline to the slot and trading/releasing Bess.

    The realistic move the jets has to do this season is, suck as much as possible to get #1 pick, save salary cap and try to come back next season. The improved Dolphins and the usual division bully -Patriots- won’t let them have any success this season.

    Brandon, you’re a WR and a WR needs a half way decent QB to throw him the ball. We have one of those in Miami, the Jets not so much. Welcome to Miami Brandon, good luck. Go Fins!

    Brandon Gibson finally got some separation.

    While exiting the building Gibson was heard to say “Hell I’d rather work at Burger King than deal with this cancer infested mess and its Pop Warner level QB”.

    I definitely think he would be a nice #2 or #3 WR for the Dolphins. If Miami does sign Gibson they can at least focus on other positions with their draft picks. I’m not sure why no one is inquiring about giving up a 2nd round pick for Denario Alexander? The guy is a beast and would be the red-zone threat the Dolphins sorely lack. Having two 2nd round pick would make it sting a lot less. Wallace, Alexander, Hartline, and Bess would be a great young WR core.

    Don’t understand the interest the phins have in him. Hes not a big guy or a fast guy. He may compete for our #3 but Bess has better hands so unless hes the 4th wr I don’t see how hes gonna hlep.

    Can’t blame him. There are “greener” pastures out there for him.

    Love the Dolphins fans attitudes. Got even worse lately.

    Rewind the tape to the Marino days and count the Lombardis.
    Then talk!

    It is going to be whoever offers him more money that he’ll pick for his new home. Can you blame him?

    Tape rewound. Same number of Lombardis as the jets. Weren’t they wearing leather helmets the last time the jets won a SB?

    I am a die-hard Dolphins fan , but I will wait until January to think of mouthing off!!!

  13. rg3andout says: Mar 14, 2013 1:13 PM

    come to Indy and be our #2, irsay will take good care of you, come win with a real QB in Luck and we are building a championship caliber defense too!!!

    “we have one of those in miami”

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

    Of course he left without a deal, if the jets don’t grossly over pay for him compared to Miami he will play for less or the same amount in Miami. Sorry jets fans but you’re the new lions, cardinals, Pittsburgh pirates etc.

    You left out the part where Ross and his sponsors have to buy tickets to avoid a blackout.
    Happens 8 times a year, oops 7.
    Only when the Jets play them.

  17. lrjets says: Mar 14, 2013 1:50 PM

    OK I concede.

    The Dolphins are the heavy pre-season choice to win the Super Bowl.

    Anything less it’s a failed season.

  18. phinsplashy2013 says: Mar 14, 2013 2:02 PM

    Gibson would be a bigger, faster slot option then Bess and considering Bess can’t get in the end zone Gibson may be the better option. Bess only has 1 more year on his deal, and while Bess is a solid player, he has no upside. Gibson can be a solid 2 or 3 & Bess simply put is a 3. Swap out Bess for Gibson, and continue to upgrade the team. Not settling for FGs anymore that’s the point.

    You would think dolphins were the patriots the way their fans talk..69finfan, yes wrs around the league are flocking to catch passes from tannehill..mike wallace didn’t sign for the money, its to be with tannehill..

    You guys went 7-9, and that was a great season for miami
    Jets go 6-10 and that was a horrible season

    Tells you a lot about each team

    What the intellectually challanged that live to throw barbs at the Jets don’t realize is that Gibson was used by the Jets to force Holmes into a 3.5 million dollar pay cut.

    Hell, the Jets new GM and Ryan never even meet with Gibson as they were at the Alabama Pro Day.

    Jets went from double digits over the cap to more than 15 million under. If you look even closer, they are closer to 20 Million under with the top 51.

    BTW Jet haters: With the additions of Gerrard and Kolb, plus 15 Million under gives them enough room to dump Sanchez this year instead of next. I’d suggest stopping to think before you post, but that requires the ability.

    Is that GUARANTEED?

    Rexy Rexy… save it for the owners meetings. The ridicule gets lost in the wash of all the FA news. lol

    Dolphins will go 9-7, make wild card and lose in 1st rd.

  23. dwight123 says: Mar 14, 2013 3:45 PM

    @FinFan Release/trade Bess? Thats down right stupid! Sure Bess as been banged up but he haw great hands! ill put my money on Bess any day of the week.

  24. pisano says: Mar 14, 2013 3:47 PM

    These guys will listen to the Jets offers, but when they find out Sanchez has a “leg up” on the competition it’s, see ya, and who can blame them. The Jets will have to overwhelm these guys with money to get them to sign, they’re losing players left and right, two yesterday and one so far today, do you think they know something? Another long year for the Jets is on the way.

    If he’s worth it, count on The Wizord of Id to get it done. I think his sights are set higher though.
