What round was wayne chrebet drafted. What round was Arian Foster drafted. What round was Pierre Garcon drafted. What round was Victor Cruz drafted.
What the Jets do is what they do and it's not going to make me stop being a fan of this team. This what i post is the way i build a team in the salary cap era, if i were a GM of a franchise. I spend money on positions that are important to the ultimate success of the team and fill in around themThe more premium position player i have, the least cap money i have to spend on the supporting cast which is what Wr, TE, Safeties and the other bit players are.
When u spend a 1st round pick on a player you are bpicking someone who will be around for 10 years hopefully. most contracts for rookies are 4 yrs, so if this player works out you now have to pay this player a huge cap hit or u wasted a 1st round talent. If this player works out, his rookie contract doesn't even reach the 4th year before you have to redo the contract.
Why would i give this type of money to someone who needs someone else to get him involved in the game. The salary cap era requires different thinking , and the new CBA doesn't excuse this.
