[QUOTE=Long Suffering Jets Fan;3518169]Wondering about the financial element in this deal. Does it free up significant $$$ to sign existiing, or new players? I know Rhodes signed a good sized financial deal a year or two ago.
Also did they Jets just say they were going to pay Rhodes the $2M, or did they actually do it?[/QUOTE]
ESPN mentioned long before the season had ended that cutting Kerry Rhodes would save them I believe 2 million. It also mentioned cutting Thomas Jones would free up about 4 million in cap space.
I could have the specific amounts applied to each player mixed up, but I do believe the total savings of cutting Jones and Rhodes freed up about 6 million...
