What I'm worried most is that Leon Washington will probably be let go. Washington and Greene should have been the duo, not LT and Greene.
The key is Leon MIGHT be let go for a 2nd round pick.
I would give 50% of the carries to Greene
25% to LT
25% to Leon.
I'd make Leon the full time KR/PR and have him line up in the slot a few times a game.
Also imagine Leon, LT, and Brad Smith in the backfield at the sametime. The SeminoleCatFrog Formation.
Also, by acquiring LT, Leon won't develop as a running back and we are probably going to let him go. It's a shame because he was turning into a good playmaker for us.
watch LT come back like the way he was a couple years ago and make the Jets even better...he wanted out of San Diego and now he is somwhere he wants to be...his talent is one of the best running backs in the NFL so I don't see why Jets fans would not like this move.
I am a Giants fan and I would def want LT here..only that his nicknae would have to change because there is really only one LT-Lawrence Taylor.

It's a solid move BUT we could have made better moves. The defensive end spot is one that worries me. We need pressure from the ends to have an effective defense and right now we don't have that. Ellis is old and the other side is up for grabs.
Honestly, I think they are going to run him into the ground. It happens so often in football, a great player is pushed too hard, decides to attempt to break every tackle instead of stepping out, his knees and back goes, and then his career is over. I would never have put LT in the hands of Rex Ryan, that's just asking for a disaster.
I do believe that the Jets need to step up with their choice of defensive ends. They've got Ellis who is just too old for the game and at best will only make it halfway through the season before his body breaks down on him. If they are going to contain the run and the passing games, they need a ton of pressure. Especially since there is a ton of film on their defensive scheme now and teams can figure out how to break them down early and hard. If Rex Ryan can switch up the game successfully and the team is revamped in terms of aging players and plays, then they have a good shot at the conference championship. This also includes Sanchez staying healthy and being able to compete EVERY possession.
LT already has been run into the ground. In 9 seasons with San Diego he has 2,880 carries(!!!). Now add all the other touches he has from receiving and what we have here is a player that should be retired. He's spent. Why would the Jets acquire such a player?? SMH
