The Zionist Conspiracy

I don't have a strong feeling about the Jets' decision to cut Thomas Jones. With Leon Washington coming off a very serious injury, and Shonn Greene seemingly having a style that gets him banged up, I'd have liked Jones to come back for one more season.
On the other hand, Greene's late season emergence made him the Jets feature back heading into 2010, and if Washington is healthy, Jones wouldn't likely have carried the ball enough to justify a $5.8 million salary.
The bottom line for me is that if the Jets use the money saved on Jones to sign a potential impact player - Adalius Thomas comes to mind - letting him go is probably the right move.
If the money is not spent but is instead used only to help alleviate Woody Johnson's thousands of unsold PSLs, then getting rid of Jones is disappointing.
