As durable as Jets defensive tackle Dewayne Robertson has been in New York, there are questions about his durability around the league. Two NFL teams confirmed Thursday that if Robertson were in the draft this year, as he was when he was the fourth overall pick in 2003, he would be undraftable due to the condition of his knees. Yet, facts are facts: Robertson hasn?t missed a game the past two seasons and he has played in 16 games in four of his five NFL seasons. Teams also said that, due to the condition of his knees, Robertson has serious longevity issues that might allow him to play only one more season. Teams are wary of Robertson?s knees, which is one reason the Jets have struggled to deal him. Teams also know that the Jets owe Robertson a $3 milllion roster bonus on June 3. If New York is going to trade him, it must do it well before then, which is one reason the Jets have shopped Robertson so hard. Robertson also is scheduled to make $6.8 million in base salary. Denver could be a likely landing spot for the defensive tackle. Robertson has visited Denver, but the Broncos are unwilling to surrender anything close to the first-round pick that the Jets initially were asking.-- NFL Network
