Jets 'Tried Like Hell' To Trade For QB Matt Schaub In 2006
How close we came to avoiding a circus in Florham Park.
When the New York Jets face Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub on Monday night, they'll come face to face with what could have been.
Ex-Jets coach Eric Mangini told Rich Cimini of ESPN New York the team went hard after Schaub in 2006, when he was a young backup quarterback with the Atlanta Falcons.
"We tried like hell to get him," Mangini said this week.
Mangini and general manager Mike Tannenbaum were offering defensive end John Abraham to Atlanta straight-up for Schaub, whose two starts behind Michael Vick had enticed the Jets. The talks for Schaub fell apart, but the Jets ended up shipping Abraham to Atlanta for the 29th pick in the 2006 draft.
