    In fairness to the original post, Bassett first stated that it was for $8 mill per, then fixed his mistake.

    $8M per year? 4 years? $32M Total? Who is negotiating this contract for the Jets, Mike Tannenbaum?

    Hire the hope and fire the dope

    And get the Jets off the rope.

    If we hire a GM at 8 M a year then any good FA QB will want at least that or more per year.

    I think the "JI Breaking News Ticker" poster needs to read the article again.

    How he sees the number "8 million" instead of "2-3 million" is mind-boggling....

    Except it's not, because that's exactly what Bassett's original post to TJB stated.....and was then edited to the current $2-3m amount.

    Jets are stupid. All they have to say is we are bringing Gamble back for a 2nd interview on Monday afternoon. Right after the Ross interview.

    How much does Mr T make? Is 2-3 mil big money for a GM or average?
