Staying classy, even as the Jets showed very little class in hanging on to him until the last possible second and severely limiting his other opportunities.
That's not being classless, it's called BUSINESS.
> Have (probably) the 2nd best available asset for the backup QB market
> See the chance to get the 1st best backup QB
> Wait until you for sure have that player you covet and then release the other guy
> Release the other guy and risk the possibility of losing out on the player you wanted and end up with neither guy
This has nothing to do with class, being nice, or anything else. This is a business where you ALWAYS have to put the FRANCHISE first.
