Good For the Browns & The Jets

Mangini didn't want Orakopo. He wanted Aaron Curry.

Rex Ryan took a look at Kellen Clemens and Brett Ratliff and knew he couldn't go with those guys.

So what we get is a great trade all around. While the Browns couldn't take Curry, they do get more picks (picks they need) and players that Mangini knows and likes. He gets Kenyon Coleman, his old free agent signings. He gets Abrham Elam, a guy he tried to sign in the off-season. And he gets a young QB in Ratliff he likes. And he gets picks.

The Jets in short, get the new face of the franchise. A guy who has played in a pro offense, and a guy who, they feel, can lead the team out from under the post-Brett Farve gloom. A guy made for playing in the spotlight of New York. And he's not Kellen Clemens.

A great move all around.
