It's an "intelligent" move because :
1.) They're paying only a pittance in regards to Braylon's current Salary and all indications point to them restructuring to make it a 2-year with even lower salary with incentives.
2.) It's a low-risk, High-reward thing at this point. If Braylon blows up, it's all good and the Jets can then examine whether another 2 or 3-year contract is warranted or not. If he fails, then they don't re-sign him and let him fade into obscurity.
3.) He has the most chemistry with our embattled QB. That cannot be understated. The Jets FO/CS need to find out if Mark is truly "Broken" as an NFL QB. I mean....if having Braylon on one side, Tone on the other, and Kerley(playing the Cotch-role) in the slot still doesn't bring Mark out of whatever "doldrums" he's currently in, then NOTHING WILL.
It certainly has been my "pleasure" in explaining this. Thank you.
This team is a complete joke. Edwards took a public dump on the organization (entirely unsolicited at that) a matter of days ago. Not that the Jets arent a joke, but who signs a washed up guy like this after that?
Welcome to REALITY.
It's all about business as I've stated above. If people can't handle a little bit of "butt-hurt" to their feelings, than those "businesses" won't last long, IMO.
