the jets are at 141 mill now, you cut 35 mill now your at 106 mill, trade revis your at 109 mill, The rookies will be allocated 7 mill min sou your at 116 mill.
that is 5 mill left. To tender Howard and Cunningham will cost almost 4 mill.
You know have 1 mill to sign all those FA!!!! Your post seems to project that since you got 35 mill you get to sign 35 mill of other players. And this does not even take into consideration the minimum salaries which is 530,000 per player this year to fill the roster to 53 players.
He has a decent plan if he would forget about the vast majority of those free agents he signed from other teams. Regardless to what the majority of Jet fans believe, there's a good chance Mark Sanchez will beon this team next yr. There's also an above average chance he will be the starter. So we can forget about signing any other free agent QB or trading for 1.
We have to focus on rebuilding the OL, getting a pass rusher and securing the best developmental QB prospect we can find. This is going to take more than 1 yr to fix but in the meantime, Rex and his defense will make us look decent..
