The problem for some of these DT needy teams is that there is no guarantee they will get Drob after the Jets cut him. In the meantime they have the draft to play for and a team like the Broncos really need a DT badly. If you don't get a guy before the draft you have to go get one in the draft, you can't assume that a) the Jets will cut him (though that is very likely) or b) that another team will not pick up DRob after he is cut.
For some team a relative low risk trade like has been talked about might make sense. I would think the big stumbling block to a deal would be failing a physical or DRob not renegotiating his deal, not the fact that teams can just wait for him to be cut.
[QUOTE=RutgersJetFan;2442702]So if his business isn't producing, that means he should just withdraw an extra 60K from his personal checking account to pay the website developer? Why, because you say so?[/QUOTE]
And who told you that his business is NOT producing? Because thats what the PR staff said after firing those people? Come on. The NFL is making more money than ever. Teams have to overpay players nowadays because they have so much cap room left.
[QUOTE=RutgersJetFan;2442702]Of course it's possible, companies are in the red all over the place. If the franchise is in the red, then you start making cutbacks. Starting with employees who you feel you can do without. If you think a NFL franchise is run differently than any other business in corporate America, you're kidding yourself.[/QUOTE]
Wal Mart has like a billion employees world wide, you cant compare the Denver Broncos to some other company. Besides nobody owns an NFL team nowadays just to make money. Its a luxury first. Its like owning a Formula 1 team. Its nothing like having a REAL business where you HAVE to make money in order to survive. These people already made it and they are willing to lose money in order to stay in the NFL. None of them are going to leave the NFL because their team doesnt make enough money.
[QUOTE=RutgersJetFan;2442702]There's no law out there that says any CEO or owner of any business has to shell money out of his own personal finances to make up for the shortcomings of his business. Sure it's something that's done, but not required. You're also neglecting the fact that the Broncos were almost bankrupt anyways when he took over the team in the 80's and saved the franchise.[/QUOTE]
Like i said, if he doesnt have enough money to own an NFL team he should just sell it. Its embarrassing to see that this guy has to get rid of a web master because he cant afford to pay him. He's full of ****, thats just my opinion. Hopefully PFT can come up with the real story behind all this...
[QUOTE=jetswin;2442551]Instead of us selfishly complaining about him failing physicals, think about the fact that this young man is looking at a very short future in his chosen profession.
I feel bad for DRob.[/QUOTE]
If he hadn't fleeced us for millions by sucking and not living up to his hype, I'd feel a lot worse. Considering he's made tons of money already and I had to watch Dslob show off his car collection on TV, I really don't feel that bad for the guy.
[QUOTE=PatsFanTX;2442851]Placing a player on the PUP, a team is allowed to add another player to the roster.
Because the PUP player is still being paid salary, no cap relief whatsoever.[/QUOTE]
However, I'm not so sure that is true if the player retires do to the injury. If he does, and he collects insurance, I believe the Jets are entitled to cap relief.
In that vein, D-Slob is probably only going to play if he can make more money than not. I have no idea what his guarantees are, but you know these are factoring in to all the decisions circulating around his situation.
The challenge for a team looking to sign him is they have to cough up compensation and cut him a new deal that makes his overall guarantees better than what he gets with the Jets, or what he would get for sitting on his rather large duff.
hey, isn't that what you do when someone calls you out for being a massive nerd with no life whatsoever who spends way too much time on a rival team's fansite? yeah, thought so :rolleyes:
back to D-Rob... it sucks for the Jets, but this is all posturing from the other teams. he may have "failed" physicals in Denver and Cincy, but both of those teams will try to sign him if/when he gets cut by the Jets. miraculously, he will pass both their physicals if that's the case.
however, this not only hurts the Jets' chances of trading him, but it alos lowers his value on the open market. even if he passes a new physical, enough has been written about his bad knee that no team will give him long-term security.
the Jets should try to renegotiate directly with him, offer him a longer deal at a home-team discount. for all his failed expectations, he's still an above-average DT, and he showed last season he could be disruptive as a 3-4 DE on passing downs. with Jenkins manning the middle, we could have a rotation of Coleman, Ellis and D-Rob at DE, and also using him as a DT partner for Jenkins in 4-3 fronts.
if that's not possible, trade him for conditional pick(s) next year and get it done... :steamin:
