Today’s Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that both the Broncos and Bengals are no longer interested in going after Jets defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson. The paper puts out there that the Jets are likely to cut Robertson if no team is willing to make a deal for him, so why throw something at the Jets for him if he’s just going to end up on the open market anyway?
Robertson is due a $3 mil bonus in June, so that is when the team will likely sever ties with him. One team the paper says may be willing to give up something for him is the Lions, as they say that Detroit might be willing to give up a late round pick for him. The nose tackle is a no-show right now for workouts with the team. GM Mike Tannenbaum is trying to put on a happy face about the situation, saying that the team has not ruled out bringing Robertson back, but that he would have to redo his deal and be moved from DT to DE.
