If you are going to criticize, know what the hell you're talking about.
1/3 of 5.6 million will NOT be used towards the cap after signing players to the PS. Do you have any idea how much players make on the PS?
Christ, stop posting, you have no ****ing clue of what you're talking about.
I know what I am talking about, granted only about 100,000 is the min for each practice squad player, if he is signed for the min amountyou can sign a player to. But if you want the guy to stay with the team, most teams pay the guy more so that he is not tempted to go to another team during the season and play for the vet min. and play for the min salary for that team, last year the pats paid Nick McDonald and Kattani the regular min for 2nd
year players so that they wont be tempted to bolt.
I am sure the Jets do the same for a couple of players every year.
I know the players numbers were caused by earlier machinations by the front office, it is those moves that allowed him to sign new players or re-sign who were at that time existing jet FA that now leave them with those numbers limiting potential moves at this time or next year. He traded cap flexibility at that time for cap constraints in the future.
IMO he thought the cap was going to go up faster than what it has under the new CBA.
Ray, how much of that 5.6 mill you think will be left in 2012?
I said that they will be lucky to roll 1/2 of that over, that is the point.
