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

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.

DeSean Jackson doesn’t vacation on Revis Island

By FRANK WARD
DailyPhiladelphian.com Editor

DeSean Jackson gets it. Hell, even agent Drew Rosenhaus gets it.

Holdouts aren’t good for business. They’re not good for the team nor the player involved. Teams suffer from missing their best players. The player suffers from a hit to their image as being greedy bastards.

In Philly, all you have to do is say two words to conjure up images of a self-centered pinhead or two: “Next question.”

Eagles fans can rest quietly in knowing that DeSean Jackson is not Terrell Owens when it comes to angling for a new deal. He isn’t joining Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Holdout Island this summer. Nor is he ripping apart team chemistry and doing sit-ups in his driveway.

Instead, Jackson has been at every session of training camp and looked much like the leader of the Eagles team. He’s meeting injured players at midfield. He’s getting the troops pumped for battle. He is the face of the franchise and relishing the opportunity to be such.

The two-position Pro Bowler, who everyone agrees has outperformed his rookie contract that pays him $800,000 this year, broke his silence this week in saying, “I’m just here to play football. All that other stuff, I could care less about.”

DeSean Jackson continues to downplay his desire for a new contract. He's clearly outperformed the $800,000 he's scheduled to earn this season.

Don’t believe every word of that. He cares about the payday; everyone does. But, he’s not going to let it affect him or his team’s chances to do good things this season. The better the team does, the more money he can make.

DJacc has a good head on his shoulders and good advisers. He realizes there’s more to a bank account than the money you earn from the NFL. There’s endorsements, appearances, media opportunities and other things that sometimes blow an NFL salary out of the water. A holdout, especially one by an elite receiver in Philadelphia, would kill those opportunities. It’s better to be seen as a professional who wants to play football and win.

That’s precisely what Jackson is doing. And, for all the ill will we have against his agent Drew Rosenhaus, the fact is that Drew doesn’t hold players out. At least he hasn’t since Terrell Owens. Chad Ochocinco, Anquan Boldin and others griped about contracts for years but still played.

While many fans were concerned when Jackson switched to Rosenhaus last year, the fact is we shouldn’t have been. Rosenhaus, Jackson and the Eagles know a new contract needs to be done. Jackson is that “special case” Joe banner often alludes to when the Eagles rarely do rip up contracts and renegotiate. However, both sides also know nothing can really be done in terms of a contract that will keep DJacc here for years until a new CBA is agreed to.

DeSean Jackson realizes the value of your image among the fans. A holdout would devalue that.

For now, DJacc is here ready to keep making history and lead this team to perform to the best of its ability. If you question his leadership ability, just read the comments he had in the Inquirer earlier this week.

“I’m not doing that this year. I could care less about all of that,” he told the paper. “I’m here to win games and to be a team player and to do everything I can to encourage my guys [to] go out there and just be successful and win games, that’s all I care about.”

That's true. Revis has really sunk in my eyes but football fans, we're just like dumb girls. After all the months of playing headgames, all Revis has to do is make another one handed int off Brady and we'll be back to thinking of him during sex... well at least 115 will.
