New York Jets
It appears Rex Ryan is ready to raid the Jets’ cupboard for players, just like he did coaches.
The 10-year veteran was cut by the Baltimore Ravens on Feb. 27, which makes him eligible to sign with any team before Tuesday’s official start of free agency.
The 29-year-old Talley has 14 tackles and one sack in his NFL career. He played in six games for Arizona in 2013 for current Jets coach Todd Bowles, who was then the Cardinals’ defensive coordinator.
Boomer predictably advised his radio partner to calm down, reminding him that there is a lot of time between now and the start of the NFL season.
The Jets are under new management, and they’ve got their work cut out for them.
The Jets and the Giants figure to be interested in a safety once free agency starts. It just so happens that the best one on the market wouldn’t mind playing for a New York team.
The good vibrations in Orchard Park, N.Y., were a bit tempered Wednesday when a report came out saying that stud tailback LeSean McCoy is is not happy with the trade that sent him to the Bills.

“After considering many factors, we determined to keep season ticket prices unchanged for the 2015 season,” Jets president Neil Glat said Tuesday.
Woody Johnson is apparently still lobbying for Darrelle Revis within the walls at Florham Park. And the All-Pro corner will hit the open market next week if New England declines to pick up a $20 million option.
So we had a happy Boomer and a cautiously optimistic Craigie on this action-packed Tuesday edition of the Morning Extravaganza…
It’s looking more and more like the Jets will have to pay Percy Harvin $10 million next season if they plan on keeping him.
Has Rex Ryan beaten the Jets to the punch? It appears that the Buffalo Bills are negotiating to sign veteran free agent Josh McCown to address their long-standing needs at quarterback.
In the aftermath of the Jets’ disastrous 4-12 season that resulted in his firing, former general manager John Idzik disappeared from public view. But now it looks like he’s resurfaced, albeit 1,000 or so miles away.
A lot will happen before Roger Goodell starts the draft clock April 30. But this much is clear: short of a trade for a veteran quarterback, the Jets will have to put up with Geno for at least part of 2015.
