He's restructured to stay in NY.

How many carries does he see this year.

He's never been one to get alot of breathers.

Does this change in 2006.

If they don't address the issue via draft, I would believe he would split carries with C.Houston, who looked decent running behind an injury riddled Jet Oline at the end of the season

I dont think they need to address the RB position this year .Martin abd Houston will split , and they will have a good look at Houston .

If Houston performs well then he has a starting job in 2007 if not they address it in next season draft.

They are not even near being a playoff contender they can wait .

But they surely need to address QB and WR 2.

I'd say that with the purge of the Jet OL, thats a much bigger priority than finding a replacement for Mcariens

I think I'm one of the few jet fans still on the Mccareins Bus...Call me crazy but, I happen to think the Paul Hackett Dink offense, Chad's injuries, then a new system and the massive injuries kind of effected his play and stats...

The guy is a work out warrior and is the type of player that is somewhere right now training and looking to improve....

I expect him to be pretty good in a good offense working with a good QB.

Not a fantasy stud but, definitely a player.

 
The Jets have 3 RBs on the roster - Martin, Blaylock, and Houston. They also have BJ Askew, who is an FB in the Richie Anderson mold by way of his versatility. I think that's enough guys to get carries.

What the Jets need to find out is if Blaylock or Houston can replace Martin as the main ballcarriers. I suspect that each will get their chance to prove that, and that Martin will get somewhere in the neighborhood of 100-180 carries this season. It's RBBC in NY.

I would agree with this, except that CuMart will likely get more like 200-240 touches (no way he gets less than 13 a game unless his knee doesn't respond to the surgery well). He ran decently with an injury and with all the crap they cleaned out of the knee he may actually do well next year. His game was never predicated on speed, so it really all depends on how active he is before the season. his best year was recently when he was running steps pre-season, so if he hits rehab like a monster, as he is wont to do, I could see one more decent year. Borderline RB2/3 stats, with an upside of good RB2 stats. I think the other 10 carries a game will go 70/30 between Cedric and Blaylock with Cedric getting the lionshare.

That's how I see it as well, at least in the beginning. Martin's getting up there where his body doesn't heal well from week to week, so I would expect him to lose carries in the second half of the year as little nagging injuries take their toll. Cedric will likely be the one taking up the slack.

Good point. A lot of those carries will likely come early with a switch later in the season as his injuries mount again. Makes sense. It's hard to imagine he doesn't run himself into the ground with the blessing of the organization, keeping him fantasy worthy for one or maybe two more years.

remember Herm made it real easy on him in preseason games. FWIW I think LT has had it similarly easy in SD. Will Curtis actually play in preseason this year? Will that matter? IIRC He's been hurt early the last few years

I think it's too early to say how it will shake out. Curtis will certainly get some work, but it remains to be seen if Blaylock and/or Houston will be in the picture.Remember, they were Herm's guys, not Mangini's. Eric may want his own guy - it's doubtful that the team can afford a decent veteran with the cap situation, but don't rule out a first-day draft pick.

I'm just evaluating based on realities. Blaylock was signed to a 5-year deal last season that had a $3.2 mil signing bonus and pays him $1 million this season. By my math, cutting him saves all of $400k on the cap, which is less than the veteran minimum anyway (and less than a first-day pick's salary too, I think). Houston is still playing his 6th-round pick contract. You're not going to save money by cutting either of these guys. Both are young, and both have shown upside. Why spend a pick this year if you're just going to have to release one of these players? I expect the Jets will spend a late pick on another FB, but unless they're willing to carry 6RBs on the game-day roster, I find it hard to see where they'll fit a 1st-day runner in. I think they still need to evaluate what they have, and since they don't really expect to be competitive this year, and RBs can be plugged in later, I don't see an RB in the Jets early rounds. As always, could be wrong, but that's why I think what I do.

 
:goodposting: above regarding the back-up RB's

curtis will get the #1 RB carries until he shows he can't handle the workload. i'd guess one more 1,000 yard season out of martin

Fair points, Z-Dog.You're right - it's not much of a financial gain if they get rid of Blaylock and/or Houston, but the main point is that we have no idea who Mangini wants as his ballcarrier.

A FA isn't likely due to the cap situation, but a first-day rookie wouldn't shock me either to take over from Curtis at some point.
