I am betting that if he is really determined to rehab his career, he will extend in a cap favorable way with a potential trading partner to give them a low-risk option for rehabbing his career.
I say this because I think at the end of the day Mark does have a competitive spirit and he knows his days are done here. He also knows that there is no way in hell that the Jets are taking a $17 million cap hit to release him.
The only question is, whether the Jets can reduce their cap hit if they find a trading partner. What's the answer to that?
