to sum it up Clayton basically said that the draft had nothing to do with grading them, but because they are the jets and are a circus they automatically are the biggest losers in the draft. I know the media hates the jets and everything and im used to it, but there is absolutely no logical reasoning behind this. he even says that the jets made good decisions in the draft, but yet they are the biggest losers in the draft for reasons that dont have to do with this draft. this is just ****ing dumb. **** you clayton you ugly ****!!!
1. New York Jets: This has nothing to do with the draft. John Idzik's first draft was solid. You can't go wrong taking cornerback Dee Milliner, defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson and quarterback Geno Smith. That's as solid as it gets. The problem is the circus that follows. The Jets needed to draft a quarterback because Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow are short-timers. Taking Smith on Friday could mean Sanchez's exit will come soon. Despite his early success in helping the team go to two AFC title games, Sanchez's situation now recalls what happened to Joey Harrington at the end of his career in Detroit. The Lions were annual losers. Harrington was drafted to be the savior, but after a while, players attached the losing to him. Though unfair, that stigma affected his ability to lead. Sanchez now represents the recent decline of this team. The situation isn't much different from Carson Palmer's in Oakland. The Raiders took the cap hit to trade him. Because he has $8.25 million guaranteed, Sanchez is untradeable. Releasing him would give the Jets $16.9 million of dead money this year and $4.8 million next year if they use the June 1 designation. Though it might seem silly to pay Sanchez $8.25 million to not play for the Jets, Smith's selection starts a new era. The Jets need to make a quick decision, though. Sanchez has a $500,000 workout bonus, so each day he works out cost them $12,500 in cash and in cap. Letting Darrelle Revis go to Tampa Bay cost them $13 million in dead money. Adding Sanchez's potential dead cap money would bring this year's total to $37.8 million. The Raiders have $49.5 million. It can be done, but the process is painful.
