    Someone close to Chris Johnson told me that he's meeting with the Jets first. But also plans to meet with the Giants. Flew out of Orlando...

    This brings to memory the great SNL skit where Reagan (Phil Hartman) acts the deferential grandfather when the girl scout with the highest cookie sales comes into the Oval Office for a congratulatory photo op, only to be shepherded out of the office so Ronny could get back to cracking the whip over his staff on the nuances of his administration's inner workings.

    Well if this is true, I doubt we'll get him. Idzik will get outbid

    This is awesome. lol

    Chris Johnson now has our message board in a tizzy. And people think he can speak in code and cryptography. These could be very long hours, days.....or weeks if it comes down to Idzik and Team CJ.

    and outpitched. all the giants have to say is, look cj, eli will throw you a lot of screens, wilson is one hit away from retirement and the division sucks except for the eagles. or, you could catch screens from geno smith and maybe get a wildcard.

    here goes another test on philosophy. do we pay this guy a little more than what we would have liked to, or just let him walk,and not be flexible in our approach. i hope idzik told him to call back, if he gets a better offer, because of the POSSIBILITY of us matching it.

    Yep. Guess he got on a plane again at Morristown Airport so he could fly to Newark to be picked up by the Giants.

    Giants have 4 million in cap space.

    They're going to have to clear more space to get him.

    The Giants have a little over $4 million in salary cap and still have to use roughly $2 million of that on draft picks. They signed Rashad Jennings, re-signed Peyton Hillis and have David Wilson coming back. I don't see how they have the cap room or the need for Chris Johnson. If you're the Jets you offer CJ $5-6 million this year fully guaranteed with whatever other amount of years or money you want that's not guaranteed. He will take the money and the Giants can't match that.

    And this is obviously a ploy to use during negotiation. Play the Giants threat against the Jets to squeeze and extra million out of them.

    Chris Johnson may not sign with the Jets, but it wont be because he is signing with the Giants (for the above reasons).

    Weren't the Falcons a team that also had a serious interest in CJ????
