Aside from "scrip clubs," that is.
The Jets have a greater need for Manny Pacquiao. They already have plenty of cornerbacks.
Reason No. 1: Pro Bowler Darrelle Revis holds down the left side.
Reason No. 2: They traded for Lito Sheppard to put him on the right side.
Reason No. 3: They signed free-agent Donald Strickland.
And here's Bonus Reason No. 5: Pro Bowl return specialist Leon Washington fielded every punt and 48 kickoffs last year.
Jones adds value to a roster because he's a dangerous return man, but the Jets already have one of the best in the business. Washington's return duties could be lessened, of course, if his offensive role gets expanded, especially if the Thomas Jones holdout gets ugly.
But the bottom line, even without Jones' off-field problems considered, the Jets need him as much as they need Brett Favre.
