ESPN Piece on Free Agency
Sounds like Idziks plan or the situation he was dealt with speaks to how and why he's doing what he's doing, and it's benefit to the NY Jets.
Why free-agency patience is a good thing
The basic premise of his piece: An intelligent team will wait a bit and can get 90 percent of the player at 50 percent of the price. “What those smart teams will do in this new economy is -- very simply -- be patient. The true stars will disappear off the market early, and the dumber teams will pay a premium for talent to lock them up in the first 24 to 48 hours, but the smart teams will wait. Even if it's just a week, antsy players will see the open slots beginning to fill up around them and settle for far less than they would have at the opening of free agency.”
