And why would they?
Why give up multiple picks and dish out a huge contract to a CB coming off ACL surgery when the FA market is littered with quality corners?
@ConorTOrr: Nothing official yet, but hearing the #jets may not be done moving $ around with player contracts. No pay cuts, just more restructuring.
@nyjetscap: @ConorTOrr Logical choices would be Mangold (has to be done by tomorrow 4PM) and maybe Harris.
@nyjetscap: @ConorTOrr People will hate this idea but they should rework Sanchez if they have any intention of spending money
Mark Sanchez- Of course I saved the best for last. I think we all agree that the dead money charge associated with cutting Sanchez, over $17 million in 2013, is simply unreasonable. In a prior posting I outlined the realistic trade market which is probably going to still hit us with $14 million in dead money. So the bottom line is that barring a miracle the Jets are stuck so we need to make the most out of a bad situation and do what we can to reduce his $12,853,125 cap charge. Now what I am going to propose is based on the thought that the Jets can not trade him this season.
I am going to reduce Sanchezí base salary to $715,000, give him the remaining $7.535 million in the form of a signing bonus and also fully guarantee and prorate his $500,000 workout bonus. What does this do? It reduces his 2013 cap charge to $6,826,875 while increasing his 2014 cap by $2,008,750. If a miracle happens and Sanchez is the man the added money onto the future cap is no big deal. If he stinks well the dead cap in 2014 rises from $4.8 million to $10,826,250. While that number is difficult it is far better than the $17+ million in 2013 if we release him. It gives us an avenue to actually release Mark in September if he simply canít play and becomes a distraction to the team. I like the idea of helping my team now and dealing with the dead money in 2014, which still represents a savings of his current 2014 cap number of $13.1 million.
Now if the Jets believe there is a trade market for Sanchez I would prorate less of the deal and have him keep around $3 million in salary that transfers to the trade partner. Under that scenario Sanchezí 2013 cap is $8,540,625 and the dead money in 2014 is now $9,112,500. As I type that out that may be more reasonable and a safer play, but that is a decision that the Jets have to make as it pertains to his perceived trade value. I think he is so damaged that a trade may be very difficult, so Idopt for more immediate cap room, but either is acceptable.
2013 Savings: $6.026250 million in Cap and $0 in Cash
2014 Savings: ($2.00875) million in Cap and $0 in Cash
