The NFL combine is more than just a showcase of football players doing a bunch of gym exercises—it is a chance for coaches and high-ranking personnel to meet some of the top prospects for the first time and get a chance to see them in person.
It is a convention for rumors as teams open up trade talks with each other and begin to gauge contracts for pending free agents.
While much of the information that comes out of the event is superfluous, the combine can be a useful tool for predicting how the draft will play out if the information is interpreted correctly.
Here are some of the latest news and rumors to come out of the combine as they relate to the New York Jets.
