They also have signed wide reciever Trindon Holliday and outside linebacker Jesse Nading to the active roster. Holliday will return punts and kickoffs, allowing receiver Jacoby Jones and safety Danieal Manning to focus on their primary positions.

CSI Florham Park: The Murder of Derrick Mason

Much like Short Round, I just got knocked on my ass unexpectedly.   We know Rex and Tanny loves them some CSI, so we’re going to use our best conjecture and forensic analysis to determine just how the Jets murdered Derrick Mason … not to say that there wasn’t a good motive …   We never bought into the notion that Mason was going to catch 60-80 balls.  Mathematically,...

Reports are all over the place that the Texans have worked a conditional draft pick deal with the New York Jets to acquire 37-year old WR Derrick Mason. Word out of New York is that Mason was benched recently because of comments he made about the offense, but his ineffectiveness had a lot (everything?) to do with it as well. Of course, when Mark Sanchez is your quarterback, it...

Jets Trade Derrick Mason to the Texans

Wide receiver Derrick Mason never made much of an impact this season with the New York Jets.

The Rundown: The Offense Gets a New ‘Do

With Derrick Mason traded, it can be easy in retrospect to just whitewash what happened and blithely say that this will make the team better in the long run — thereby assuaging any concerns we have about just how the Jets offense is currently struggling. Yesterday I made clear my reasons why the moved bothered me, but in trying to present the other side of the coin.  The truth...

Bondy: Jets' party is pooped

The Jets keep looking dumber and dumber on this Derrick Mason deal, denying the existence or impact of events that surely influence their decision-making process.
