Pittsburgh has a worse cap situation than us. No way would they ever pay what camp Revis wants anyway.
I've been seeing this a lot here. I keep seeing it every other post. Those that think this MUST get their minds out of the 1960s-1990s. Teams do not rebuild anymore... they re-tool and go for it. Teams that think that way are bottom dwellers, because in today's NFL, you win or you get gutted (coaches, players, management)... Period.This team is not trying to win anything big this year. We are obviously in total rebuild mode.
This is the NFL. There are two types of teams: Teams with great quarterbacks that are always competing for championships, and teams that do not, are trying to get there. All teams talent-wise are relatively close. They all draft from the same talent pool, some wind up better than others, but every team has good talent. Yes, they are close... closer than anyone thinks. If you can play a little D (mainly, rush the passer) and throw the ball (QB that has time to throw and then makes good throws), you have a shot at a Super Bowl. If you don't, you can't. Reeeaaally simple since about 2000, maybe 2002. The difference between the contenders and the rest is QB play. This is the new NFL, ever since (1) free agency opened up and (2) DBs can no longer grab WRs as much as they used to. That's it. Every team should be trying to develop a passing attack and develop a pass rush. If not, they should just find new occupations. I used to love ground and pound, but very few of those teams go all the way. They'll do some damage, but never go for the jugular and win a Super Bowl. Schotty, Sporano, and injuries are 1, 2, and 3 the biggest reasons why we've dropped like a stone in the past two years, and (4th) Sanchez's play is directly related to piss poor offensive coaching that has completely wrecked Sanchez's confidence (and all of the fans confidence in him as well, which piles on and makes the kid even worse) and made him a basket case of a QB throwing pics and pissing wide open targets. Maybe he can be saved maybe not. It's up to MM now. He's got a track record, something that neither Schitty nor Sparano had... he needs to develop our passing attack no matter who is our QB. Sanchez, Gerrard, rookie, McElroy, Tebow (yeah, probably not that one, but who knows in this league), or anybody else. We're not that far off. And, NOBODY is.
We have a few options. Improve the passing game and improve the pass rush. We do that, we can compete with anybody. In fact, all 32 teams can say that. That's why teams can be in the playoffs one year and stink the next. Notice all the teams can hover around .500 and make it or miss it on one play from one game. A few plays one way or another is the difference between 6-10, 8-8, and 10-6. The only teams that stay on top nowadays are ones that have a solid passing attack and a pass rush to disrupt the opponent's passing attack. I've had to repeat myself over and over in this post because people seem to not understand. We aren't a 0-16 team. And nobody is 16-0. Playoff teams can $#it the bed and a $#itty team can contend. It's a simple game nowadays... learn to pass and stop the pass. Then, you can get the job done. So no matter who are QB or WRs are, they need to perform. And no matter who our pass rushers are, they need to pressure. It's simple.
Please, everyone, stop it with this rebuild cr@p. Re-tool and compete, or die.

Mike Garafolo @MikeGarafolo
Victor Cruz will get a performance-based-pay check of $221,303. Jets' Austin Howard gets an additional $259,645.
Jason La Canfora @JasonLaCanfora
At a time when vets around the league are getting squeezed and cut, a small bright spot: Player performance checks go out Friday

Rather go after heward-bey rather than overpay Gibson
Lets remember the more Jets UFA that sign elsewhere increases the Jets likelihood (and # of) compensatory picks they may be awarded for the '14 Draft.
With DeVito & Grrene gone. Keller and Landry about to be.
@LisaZimmerman: #Jets other UFAs: Yeremiah Bell, Brayon Edwards, Nick Folk, Lex Hilliard, Brandon Moore, Chaz Schilens, Matt Slauson, Bryan Thomas.

We have no viable RB
Very suspect WR's
Worst QBing in the league
Some new holes on the o-line.
No amount of 'retooling' will get us to be good enough to contend in short order. Your best chance for success in this league is to build a good enough team to be in the playoffs and at least have a shot. If you have the basic building blocks you can then retool, if you don't you have to rebuild and if you do not go into it with an eye on a rebuild both player and salary wise you be stuck in perpetual mediocrity.
@MMehtaNYDN: RT @ArmandoSalguero TE Dustin Keller Is now getting a physical and if all checks out afterwords the club and his agent will talk terms. #nyj
