    Why not tag and then negotiate? Because the Jets need the cap room for this offseason, you know, in case they need to sign a big ticket free agent.

    i'm interested to see what kind of money it is and I bet you the contract will be backloaded to help the cap this year.

    by tagging him right away the jets are risking have all the money hit this years cap which would cripple them+ you risk paying him top dollar at his position which he simply isn't worth....they are doing the right thing.

    4 years 28 mil with 12 mill guaranteed

    do we have a year by year breakdown yet? I think the money above is fair (and actually a GREAT deal for the Jets w/ only 12mil guaranteed), I just want to see how it's being spread against the cap throughout the contract.

    I think that's as good a guess as any. I'd say that a fair portion of that money would be in years 3 and 4 though as I don't think he'll truly get $7m a year. But, I think its safe to say that he could pull in $12m in the first 2 years.

    This is just my guess. I have no idea what the real numbers will look like. I doubt he will give us that much of a disscount. If he hit the markett some team would pay him nice money.

    oh.

    could be about right with possibly another 8 - 9 mil guaranteed?

    Totally agree with everything you said. I doubt he would let us back load it like someone else mentioned. He's never gotten paid. He has to be wanting some money. And he has leverage because on the open market some team will pay him a contract that goes well and beyond. He had a solild enough year to attract it.

    Yeah, for a 32 year old guy who is now one of the better players at his position, its interesting that he's never really gotten a pay day yet. He started late on account of his Mission and the Jets have been very adroit at extending him (as well as DeVito and possibly Ropati) before they came up for FA. This deal will be his one and only time to cash in.

    I just looked it up - the Jets extended him for 3 years in 08' (covering 09' - 11') which basically amounted to, after escalators, 3yrs/$5m. I'd say that's a pretty nice deal for the Jets.

    Considering how he performed, definitely.

    And in two years when they restructure him it will all become guaranteed. :eek:

    LOL. Can't help myself.

    Pouha is a good NT but not worth franchise tag bucks IMO

    Sione gets a Captains Patch from me and is a blueblood NY Jet. He was 26 when he entered the draft after doing two years of missionary work after college and appreciates being so blessed in life. Pouha is the lunch pail, feel good, player guy the team really needs to gel the defensive side of the locker room.

    IMO he should be a priority keeper.
