Yes, I’m sure new Jets coach Todd Bowles would be ecstatic and new Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan would be thrilled, but I don’t think their combined happiness would even be one-tenth of this guy’s.
By my calculations, which I did on a napkin five minutes before I wrote this, the chances of the Jets ending up with Mariota fall somewhere between zero and 4.3 percent.

Ravens offering Ray Rice jersey exchange at team store
Every time a popular player is sent packing from an NFL team in disgrace, the team usually offers a refund of the player’s jersey to fans. The Ravens will continue that trend with Ray Rice.
On Tuesday, the team announced fans could exchange their Rice jerseys at team stores, though precise details will be released at a later date.
Before the assault incident on his wife, Rice was one of the most popular athletes in Baltimore. It stands to reason there are lots of Ravens fans with Rice jerseys out there.
Rice was released by the Ravens on Monday shortly after new, graphic elevator footage of him striking his wife was released publically. The NFL then suspended Rice indefinitely.
The Patriots offered a similar exchange for Aaron Hernandez jerseys after the former star tight end was arrested, charged with murder and released by New England all on the same day.
