ESPN's John Clayton reports the New York Jets are visiting with free agent linebacker Jason Taylor today.

So I’ve slept on it, and here’s what I come away with from yesterday’s games: Colts 30, Jets 17 The Jets ground game was MIA.  Yes, they ran the ball alright in the first half, but not nearly well enough to allow any serious play-action in the second.  I figured that the only way the Jets were going to win this game was by pounding the ball up the middle with Thomas Jones, off-tackle with Shonn Greene, and with fun end-around and reverse plays out of the Wildcat with Brad Smith. Thomas Jones and Shonn Greene gained a total of 39 yards on the ground in the second half.  Foolishly, I figured that the Jets would “dance with the girl that brung ya.”  Silly me.**

I had only planned on doing a little preview, since I’m not generally a betting woman.  However.  Now that Aaron’s given you his picks, I can’t let him completely take over my turf without chiming in myself, now can I?

Minnesota Vikings at New Orleans Saints Fans, pundits and even honest to goodness football people keep talking about how dominant the Viking defensive front four looked against the Cowboys last week and expect a repeat performance this Sunday down in the Big Easy. It ain't gonna happen.

It’s been a weird couple days in the NFL.  Here are a few stories that are making the rounds, each of them a head-scratcher: Rookie WR Michael Crabtree, after spending significant time away from San Francisco, finally signed a six-year contract with the 49ers.  If he has two outstanding years in his first four, the contract evolves into a five-year deal.  The weird part of all this?  M.C. Hammer was apparently present during negotiations.  Yes, really, that M.C. Hammer.

Look out now -- the San Francisco 49ers have officially accused the New York Jets of tampering with their (unbelievably, as-yet-unsigned) first-round draft pick, Michael Crabtree.  Back in May, Alex Marvez of Fox Sports called tampering "the NFL's dirty little secret," and warned that without harsher penalties, it'll only get worse.  Well, the 49ers are saying that the Jets called up Crabtree and promised to sweeten the deal left on the table in San Francisco, if only Crabtree re-enters the 2010 draft.  Rex Ryan, in true "no duh" fashion, has called the whole accusation "ridiculous."  Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum isn't talking, but either everyone's after the Jets, or there's something fishy going on.  Crabtree's the third receiver rumored to have been contacted illegally by the Jets, though neither the Denver Broncos (for Brandon Marshall) nor the Minnesota Vikings (for Percy Harvin) filed any formal charges.
