Using that roster spot from Revis I would imagine (although I assume you are pointing to us playing them in a couple weeks). Hopefully we can get him back at some point. They had put a claim on him earlier but it was conditional I believe so the interest has been there.

I've been following the Jets RB situation and Shonn Green has no long speed and looks sluggish and their back ups are expansion quality. Grimes is a definite upgrade. He's gonna get some carries...you can bet on that.

Probably, after they've held him in a room for a few hours breaking down our offense. Ha

Seriously doubt a practice squad rookie RB knows our offense as well as even Rex Ryan who's played us twice.

Isn't our offense pretty obvious?

1) The Texans like to run the ball...a lot. They are effective at one cut and go running.

2) The Texans like to use playaction pass and will pass the ball down the field or will use shorter routes.

3) The Texans play a 3-4/4-3 1 gap hybrid defense and generally man coverage.

What are they really going to learn that they can't see on film and that which is not obvious?

100% agreed Vinny.

I'll wager a cold beer that Jonathan Grimes starts for the Jets at some point this season.

Fantasy owners, stash him on your IR or bench if you have room. Y'all can bookmark this prediction and mock me mercilessly if am am wrong.

With how Shonn Greene has been playing, I wouldn't be that surprised. If Grimes picks up the playbook and can block worth a damn, I'd drop Greene to the 3rd back and go with Powell as the #1 and Grimes as the #2. If something happens to Powell, then it's Grimes' time to shine.

I really hate the Jets. Does anyone remember at the end of the 2009 season when we were fighting for a playoff spot and needed the Jets to win? I felt like they purposely lost to screw us.

Grimes is a decent Zone scheme RB prospect, but let's not get carried away about this loss.

He wasn't going to crack the rotation here for like......ever. Let the man have a shot with a more RB poor team. Sorry we lost him, but he should be excited about the opportunity there.

You have that backwards. The Jets were the 7-7 team going into the final weeks who needed to win out and hope that other games and tiebreakers broke their way to make it in. The Colts and then the Bengals laid down in the final two weeks to let them into the playoffs instead of the Texans.

Grimes will look good compared to the rest of those Jets runners. He has a real chance there. I was counting on him being in our rotation after Ben Tate gets a starter's contract elsewhere.

With the quality of our roster we'll have to get used to teams poaching some talented prospects from the team. As long as Smith keeps on drafting great it will happen every year.

Grimes wasn't drafted, which makes this so much harder to take.

We got Grimes as an undrafted free agent (rookie) and I love the idea of getting the next Arian Foster for basically free--No draft pick, and low contract amount. Not saying Grimes is the next Foster...just saying that Grimes was a guy who could have been in at RB2 or RB3 at some point in the future, IMO.

This is a first, though: Teams know we know how to find talented RBs...so they will sit back and let us do the work. Sure, the OL and the scheme and everything around the team is what helps makes our RBs good, but still...teams are going to snag our PS RBs quite a bit for the next several years I'm afraid.

But hey, we kept Keo (a 4th string Safety and ST player) so it's all good. Keo is a roster spot killer, #$%@!
