    ESPN Piece on Free Agency

    Sounds like Idziks plan or the situation he was dealt with speaks to how and why he's doing what he's doing, and it's benefit to the NY Jets.
    Why free-agency patience is a good thing

    The basic premise of his piece: An intelligent team will wait a bit and can get 90 percent of the player at 50 percent of the price. “What those smart teams will do in this new economy is -- very simply -- be patient. The true stars will disappear off the market early, and the dumber teams will pay a premium for talent to lock them up in the first 24 to 48 hours, but the smart teams will wait. Even if it's just a week, antsy players will see the open slots beginning to fill up around them and settle for far less than they would have at the opening of free agency.”

    Yup I like what we are doing so far. We have just begun to get out of a sticky cap situation so we don;t want to get right back into a bad one by reaching too much.

    Having said that we still need to sign 3 or 4 more players to cover gaping holes before the draft.

    Add in the fact that the "flat cap" is also making teams very wary of how
    they spend their $$$. Let's be real here the NFLPA got screwed in the
    last contract because the "flat cap" is really a cap within the cap. After
    a few days the foolish big spending teams will have no more room and
    players/agents panic. Then they'll settle for one year deals

    Yeah I agree let's hope we get some quality players that have potential as opposed to just fill ins
