HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:13 PM) Teh table
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:27 PM) I miss our banter everyone EXCEPT Harlem I don't like him very much cause he's annoying as hell and that Wind Beneath My Wings shit is such a example
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 05:34 PM) I have elevator video of you giving out high fives
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:03 PM) Thank you for the warm words GG. I appreciate the thought!
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:04 PM) any of u guys know how to size a NBA jersey?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 PM) Like im a XL so when I get a NFL jersey I get a L
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:05 PM) Im getting it for a friend
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:13 PM) SIGN WILL HILL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) There are some decent FAs I hope we go after, we have like $48 mil in cap space, plus more once we get rid of Chris Johnson and Calvin Pace.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) Lol for someone who doesn't like me and doesn't pay attention to what I have to say, GG sure loves talking about me
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:25 PM) if we release Harvin, we won't get him back most likely. Hes the most dynamic offensive player we have had in a while.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) Plus he has no guaranteed money so we can release him at any time for no cap hits. Maybe they can rework his contract, but I hope we keep him
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:48 PM) I think he does restructure though, can't imagine Brick wanting to play elsewhere. I see him as a career Jet
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:59 PM) I think that Oday would be fine as a starter for one spot, he showed promise. Plus it would be a competition between Oday, Winters, and Dozier.
Chadforpresi... Icon : (Today, 12:31 PM) Iupati would be a great signing. If Harvin doesn't restructure I would not be opposed to cutting him

[b][url="http://twitter.com/Adam_Schefter"]@Adam_Schefter[/url][/b]It's pretty simple. In the coming uncapped year, teams that reach Final 8 cannot sign free agents unless they lose one.

Don't really need to sign anyone if we don't lose anyone. Draft some DL depth, and I'm not sure who on our team could possibly leave, but we just need to fill some depth.

For once he is wrong...it's the final 4

And IMO, and alot of football guys "in the know", this supposed uncapped year will be straightened out before free agency!

So if we lose in the 2nd round, we will only be able to sign 1 "big" Free Agent (Over 4.925 million), and any number of smaller (Under 3.275 million in Year 1, with 30% increase per year) free agents as we'd like.

If we win in the 2nd round, then we join the Final 4 rules, which would prevent us from making moves outside of other teams cuts or our own free agents, unless we lose Free Agents of our own, in which case we can replace them as long as they're making an equal or lesser salary to what they signed elsewhere for.

Essentially, the rule is designed to prevent a team from buying a championship.

With that said though, keep in mind the other rules changes

- Players go from needing 4 years of NFL Service Time for Free Agency to needing 6 years of NFL Service Time for Free Agency, meaning players like Leon Washington and Braylon Edwards whose contracts are up, but do not have the service time required, will become RFA's rather then UFA's.
- Teams get multiple franchise/transition tags to lock up their own players.

In other words, we're looking at one of the worst FA markets ever.

....And if there is a massive salary cap purge from other teams, we will not be precluded from sifting through that, as the Final 8 rule does not apply there.

This FA won't be worth signing guys anyways, all the top guys are RFA or will be franchised tagged. The draft is where we have to hit gold.

Jets win Superbowl and free agents rush to New York with sign saying "will play for free 1st year" hence free agent.

So in theory, if David Clowney who is a UFA signs with another team, does that mean we can sign Miles Austin who is also UFA?

I'd much rather win the Super Bowl than lose in the playoffs just so we can sign a free agent next year. I'm good with being able to see one super bowl win if we can go all the way this year. i mean comon, would any of you guys care that much about free agents next year if we won the super bowl?

One player on the list that I'd rather not lose other than Leon is Brad Smith.
