ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 06:52 PM) AJ Hawk getting cut means that the Packers are going to try real hard to lock up Cobb
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 06:52 PM) and the Lions released oft injured Reggie Bush
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 07:29 PM) The Packers had the cap space to lock up Cobb regardless
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 07:30 PM) But Bryan Bulaga is also a FA< so they have 2 important guys to re-sign. I think the OT is more important for Rodgers
ganggreen2003 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 09:17 PM) 22 days 21 hours 27 min till FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!!!
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (25 February 2015 - 10:06 PM) If we get rid of Harvin, Kevin White looks like a nice replacement.

ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 February 2015 - 05:19 PM) going from one cesspool to another
santana Icon : (28 February 2015 - 09:46 PM) You realize the jets are in cesspool mode as well right?
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 February 2015 - 11:29 PM) no we aren't
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 February 2015 - 11:29 PM) we are in good shape compared to those 2 other franchises
ganggreen2003 Icon : (28 February 2015 - 11:29 PM) so I'm not even putting MY JETS in the same category as those lowly Tampa Bay Bucs and Cleveland Browns
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (01 March 2015 - 02:53 AM) The Jets are a total cesspool

ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 04:02 PM) So is Harvin going to be on the JETS roster in 2015 or we cutting him? What's the SCOOP
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:04 PM) my guess is if he does not restructure they will wait until they see what they can get in FA before making that decision.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:04 PM) We have until the 19th.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:05 PM) I cant wait until FA
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 08:18 PM) The Jets actually have $55 mil in cap space right now, $65 once they release Harvin
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:33 PM) well Maccagnan better spend that $55 mil but spend it wisely as hell
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 PM) I think he won't just throw money at players just cause of the name on the back of their jersey
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 09:34 PM) TRUST MACCAGNAN!!!!
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 09:37 PM) this just in geno smith signs extension for 39 mil

[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.
