A.J. Feeley A NY Jet?

Sorry, I know discussing Feeley isn't the "sexy" topic this off-season. Conversations of Boldin, Peppers, or T.J. make for better headlines and water cooler talk. But with the retirement of Favre this fan is thinking maybe the Eagles could get something for Feeley from the Jets.

The Jets need to bring in a veteran QB to challenge Clemens, Ratliff, and Ainge. The Jets have a veteran team with some talent and would be idiots to waste a season with a young QB struggling.

Yes I also understand that Feeley isn't a big name or the most talented QB. But with the Jets being up against the cap do they really have that many choices available to them? Feeley has some talent, has shown that if surrounded by the right pieces (Thomas Jones) he can lead a team to victories, could provide a veteran, mentoring presence, and would come on the cheap to the Jets.

The Eagles previously fooled the Dolphins into giving up a 2nd round draft pick for Feeley. Maybe this time the Eagles could steal maybe a 5th or 6th rounder from the Jets or even the 7th rounder they recently got from the Packers for Favre only playing one season. This may not seem like much, but for a guy that is a 3rd stringer anything is better than nothing.

Sorry for the interruption...back to the talks of getting Boldin in Eagles' green (which in reality has as much chance of happening as this Feeley scenario!).
