    Brees given franchise tag

    First step in saving face. Shoulda have paid the man then franchised Nicks IMO.

    Jets are not paying Nicks. He will get a 60 million dollar contract with 20 plus guaranteed.

    That would be cheap.

    Looks like Nicks will be out of the Jets price range

    Grubbs might be a cheaper alternative.

    Sooo, before any of the haters get in...

    How many draft choices would you give for Brees?

    0 the NYJETS dont have the speed skills to be able to operate in a Drew Brees quick downfield attack offense.

    2 first rounders and a 2nd next year plus Mark Sanchez... would you do it?

    Yeah, and if we had a crystal ball, we could have taken Tom Brady in the sixth round instead of Tony Scott.

    I cannot express how much of a NO in spending 2 first round picks and Sanchez.

    I'm just trying to stir the pot. I'm a Sanchez supporter, I just want to see what kind of reaction I'd get. So far pretty good.

    You can't pay 2 guards that type of money and expect to be OK at other positions in the future. Stupid way of running a team.

    Unless you wanted to franchise and trade Nicks.
