Latest News
04/30/2012 - General manager Mike Tannenbaum sat out the trading frenzy on Thursday night but couldn't resist pulling the trigger on yet another draft trade Friday, when he sent second-, fifth- and seventh-round picks to move up four spots and grab Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill with the 43rd overall pick. The Jets' website reported this was unofficially Tannenbaum's 32nd trade involving draft picks in seven seasons as general manager. In his pre-draft meeting with the Jets, Hill made it clear he believes in the adage "look good, play good." Hill wore a suit and tie to the Jets' headquarters, and while the Jets drafted him for his unique combination of run-blocking skills and deep-threat capabilities (he had 1,248 yards on just 49 career catches at Georgia Tech), his all-business approach couldn't have hurt. "This is actually your job," Hill told the New York Daily News. "You're actually coming in here for an interview. It's a business and you have to treat it like a business. So I came up here sharp." - The Sports Xchange
