Thread: Does Wimbley come at a Discount?

    Does Wimbley come at a Discount?

    It's pretty rare that a young, talented player comes free with money already guaranteed to him (sweet management Oakland) but it appears Wimbley could be paid $6.5 million to not play for Oakland.

    I know we are speculating on what he "would do" but do you guys think that $6.5 will work in a teams favor as he is already getting that money?

    Any good agent would try to argue against that, but the fact of the matter is if we give him a 3 year $15 million deal, he will get paid $21 million over those 3 years.

    $6.5 million is a lot of money and could allow Wimbley to be considered a good value, especially since he plays a position we need?

    Thoughts?

    Well because Tannenclown has saddled us with bad contracts, I dont think Wimbley is an option.

    Wouldn't surprise me if he wound up in New England if they don't go get Mario Williams.

    We will have 15 mil coming off the cap between Bart Scott and Calvin Pace after the 2012 season, so our team payroll will be under 100 mil after the 2012 season and the cap is going to be increasing, it will even increase this FA as the NFL and NFLPA are trying to increase it right now.

    Don't let facts get in the way of making "sensational" posts right? Geez...

    This dude would be a good pickup, the $15m over 3 years sounds about right

    NFL players (and agents) don't take "discounts."

    about right for what? sure he would want to come in and get paid 1/2 of what the other three lb are making in their contracts, when he out played 2 of them.

    Seattle is looking for a guy to play the elephant in that D, GB could use him on the other side of Mathews, this guy will have a lot of options before he settles for 3 and 15.

    Tuesday Night News on Wimbley and Curry

    Kamerion Wimbley - LB - Raiders

    The San Francisco Chronicle believers Raiders OLB Kamerion Wimbley is "open to the idea of a pay cut."
    This contradicts a recent report from ESPN's Bill Williamson, who said Wimbley is willing to rework his contract, but "not interested" in taking a pay cut. Already guaranteed $6.5 million of his $11 million 2012 salary and in line for another big payday if he hits the open market, Wimbley holds on the cards in talks with the Raiders.

    Aaron Curry - LB - Raiders

    The San Francisco Chronicle believes both OLB Aaron Curry and FS Michael Huff will be back with the Raiders in 2012.
    Curry is due $5.75 million next season, but beat writer Vittorio Tafur expects him to return on a restructured deal. According to league sources, Curry is "liked" by new Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie. Coming off an up-and-down 2011, Huff is due a $4 million roster bonus on March 16, but his $4 million 2012 salary is fully guaranteed.

    about right for what the Jets are able to pay given the salary cap constraints, and the need to sign their upcoming draft picks. can you understand that?

    Not an ideal Cap Year for the Jets to be significant players in Free Agency...

    that said, it doesn't mean we can't aquire talent, but think we have to be somewhat realistic in terms of players that can fall into our budgeted pool...

    Tanny is always looking for bargain.. meaning.. he looks for potential big upside without have to spend significant dollars... Sure this is somewhat of a gamble, but business is risk..... he maybe be willing to take a risk with a character guy... who has tremendous ability... or an aging vet who has tons of leadership and ability, that is looking to highlight career is certain specific role..

    Bottom line... what makes Jets better this year is a great draft and continued improvement from players on roster....

    I thought that is what you believed he would sign for, not what you believed the jets could afford.
