Yeah, you guessed it...
Yeah, you guessed it...
We've gotta slash 23.1 million just to get to the cap! LOL!
The NFL needs to setup a New York Jets relief fund. Damn, lol.
We are 3 over the hill player cuts away from being almost 10 million under.. And thats before we drop guys like tebow and eric smith ect.. And restructure Sanchez maybe even Holmes and/or Harris..
The cap situation isnt no where as bad as it seems .
This has been discussed ad nauseum here. This analysis looks at the structure of the team as it stands today and does not factor the impact of likely cuts, restructures or extensions that provide cap relief. We easily change the financial situation once we deal with Pace, Scott and Smith. Plus, it doesn’t consider the number of projected starts vs. back-ups and role players under contract.
Colts with 42 million to spend, shows how eating a bunch of dead money in one year can really set you up for future space.
Maybe, MAYBE, if we can move Revis and drop his salary plus pick up one reliable starter that might help a little, but that's a very big maybe.
And if someone is willing to pay landry more yr than what a franchise tag would cost . By all means they deserve to have him .
Chicken littles should read Jason's nyjetscap article.
The "woe is me" Jets/Mets attitude is the worst, and contributes a lot towards the perception of the Jets as a laughingstock.
Cap hell is when you have to cut productive players. We are not in that situation.
Yes, we can get under the cap with cutting a lot of dead weight but we also have a roster that is woefully thin in talent. It is not like we can go out and spend money on some top FA to help bolster the roster.
I wouldn't say we are in cap hell but for 2013 we do not have much flexibility. Which I think most fans are OK with b.c if we take our hits this year then in 2014 we will have a boatload of room to make some nice improvements. If we could combine that with good drafts in 2013 and 2014 we will be right back in the thick of things.
If there has ever been a team that can cut more money and lose less production then what the Jets can do with Jason Smith, please someone tell us.
That article is unsubstaitiated idiocy....no other way to describe it.
"Cap Casulties" are players like chris canty.
Jason Smith, Eric Smith, and Bart Scott are salary cap gifts
We need to follow the Indy model. DO NOT push cap hits into future years and just deal with all the dead money now. Hope you hit in the draft and catch lighting in a bottle. Don't really spend anything in free agency. Plan for the future. Cut Sanchez, Scott, Thomas, Smith, Smith, Pace, etc....go super young and start building a long term winner.
I'm pretty sure the Redskins are in the worst shape. What with being restricted to $105M instead of $121M next year. (Not including whatever their rollover is)
