Jets hire Maccagnan as GM and Bowles as HC. Who's starting the billboard fundraiser?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 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 : (30 January 2015 - 08:14 PM) We'll have over $50 mil to spend
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:52 PM) sign everyone!!!!
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:54 PM) I'd love to grab Cobb, Julius Thomas, and Mike Iupati
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 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 : (30 January 2015 - 08:56 PM) It's ok though buddy I love you
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 08:57 PM) We just need a QB to throw to them
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:17 PM) Cobb isn't leaving the Packers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:18 PM) I hope we keep Harvin
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:28 PM) I like Harvin but I don't think we should pay him that much
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:29 PM) but if we can get a WR keep him
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:40 PM) idk how cap works sometime
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:41 PM) how can Denver have 31 mil in space?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:43 PM) but I guess since they have to pay both Thomas this year that will go fast
MikeGangGree... Icon : (30 January 2015 - 09:45 PM) and have to pay miller next year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:20 PM) Are they not counting PEyton Manning?
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:22 PM) A lot of their players increase cap hits after this season
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:22 PM) you can work the numbers
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 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 : (30 January 2015 - 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 : (30 January 2015 - 10:26 PM) I think he will awesome in Chan's offense, maybe worth the $10 mil
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:40 PM) We still have to pay Mo too
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:47 PM) yup. We also happen to be in the big years of Mangolds' and Brick's contracts
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:48 PM) Brick either restructures after this season or is released, noway he stays at $14 mil
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 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 : (30 January 2015 - 10:51 PM) need to re-sign Demario Davis and Damon Harrison as well
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:52 PM) they shouldn't cost much though
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:57 PM) I'd really love to bring in Franklin or Iupati
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 10:59 PM) Franklin, Iupati, or Boling I would be happy with. We need a good OG.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (30 January 2015 - 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 : (Yesterday, 12:31 PM) Iupati would be a great signing. If Harvin doesn't restructure I would not be opposed to cutting him
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:47 PM) See this is why you can't be taken seriously harlem
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:47 PM) Orlando Franklin is a FLAG machine
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:48 PM) he'd just be our 2014 version of Colon
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 01:48 PM) HELL NO TO ORLANDO
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:42 PM) Still paying attention to what I say, huh?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:43 PM) You are the wind beneath my wiiiiiiiings
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 02:46 PM) 0099 said he'd be happy with Franklin too, but you only bitch about when I said it. Seems legit
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:12 PM) it is legit cause you're wasting bandwith with that bullsh*t
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) Wasting bandwidth saying I want a certain player when someone else said they wanted the exact same player?
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:43 PM) How much activity was my one sentence really cluttering lol
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:44 PM) Like I said GG I still love you
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:46 PM) http://youtu.be/c9ZMDPf9hZw

LaRon Landry says NY Jets won’t be getting a hometown discount when hard-hitting safety hits open market

LaRon Landry has breathed life into the Jets defense this season one teeth-rattling hit at a time, but the team's enforcer may not be a part of their future. The hard-hitting safety told the Daily News that he won't give the Jets a hometown discount when he hits the open market after the season.

"What do you mean (by) a discount?" Landry said. "Take less over what? From where?… If that (were) the case, I would have taken a hometown discount and stayed with the Redskins.… I love the game. I love this organization. I love them for giving me an opportunity. But at the end of the day, I'm going to sit down with my agent and my family and make the best business decision."

"I get along (with the coaches)," Landry added. "But at the end of the day, man, I got to think about my future and longevity too."

Translation: The Jets are going to have to pony up some serious cash in free agency after they inked Landry to a team-friendly one-year contract with built-in injury protections last offseason.

Half of Landry's 1-year, $3.5 million max value contract was tied up in weekly roster payouts to protect the team in case he suffered an injury. Landry played in only 17 games in the previous two seasons due to a heel/Achilles injury.

However, Landry now has the leverage due to his elevated play and a clause in his contract that prevents the Jets from applying the franchise or transition tag in 2013. The Jets almost certainly would have franchised Landry, who has been one of the team's most indispensable players.

It's likely that the Jets will have to pay Landry, who provided a marked upgrade at the position this season, anywhere from $7-10 million per season based on the range for the league's five highest paid safeties.

Do the Jets need the 28-year-old Landry back in 2013?

"It would be nice," Rex Ryan told the News, breaking into a laugh. "There will be plenty of time to look at that. But obviously he's a guy that has had a huge impact for us."

Landry's resurgence as a versatile defensive piece has bolstered the defense in myriad ways. He's the Jets' second-leading tackler (102) and has a team-high four forced fumbles. He's been an effective blitzer. "We use him as a missile," linebacker Bart Scott said.

Landry's coverage skills have helped the Jets remain a Top 5 pass defense.

"I went home a couple times, talking to my family and said, 'Bro, I feel like I'm in my rookie year again. Fast as sh--,'" Landry said. "It's been that way building this season."

Thanks to a manic rehab schedule that includes an additional two hours of treatments with personal trainers five days a week at home or at the team hotel on gameday mornings, Landry says his health is no longer an issue. "Healthwise," he said, "I'm back."

Landry's most invaluable intangible, of course, is intimidation. He doesn't talk trash to opponents. He talks to himself. A lot.

"I might say something to myself… and they hear me," Landry said. "When I clap, and they say I'm clapping because I hurt somebody, that's really to myself. That's just positive thinking to myself. It's nothing like, 'Okay I'm hurting this guy.' It's, 'I hit this motherf----r, man.'"

Safety Yeremiah Bell has seen Landry's penchant for mumbling to himself up close.

"I've played with trash talkers, but nobody that's that intense," Bell said. "I love playing with him because he makes it so easy. He always makes it fun. It's almost like when he gets in a zone, he's in his zone. Sometimes he's the only one in there and he's going crazy. Everybody knows. He'll talk to himself and then come back and be like, 'What's the play?'"

It didn't take long for Landry's teammates to realize that his bone-crunching hits had a tangible cause and effect. Antonio Cromartie first noticed it in the second preseason game when Landry buried his shoulder into Victor Cruz's chest on a 21-yard reception.

"Victor Cruz didn't want to come back across the middle anymore," Antonio Cromartie said with a smile. "When you get hit that damn hard, it hurts. It makes you think twice about going across the middle. That's the presence he brings."

Bell has seen countless similar examples through the first 13 games.

"If he hits somebody and that guy's got to come over the middle the next time, believe me, he's thinking about LaRon," Bell said. "He's thinking, 'Where is this guy?' He can't locate him, but in the back of his head, he's thinking, 'I know he's coming.'"

Despite some of the medical risks, Ryan admitted that he realized "almost immediately" that the Jets made the right move to bring him aboard.

"Some of his hits in that Buffalo game (in the season opener), it's like, 'Wow! Oh my goodness!'" Ryan said. "I think it was obvious then that this is really going to work out."

Landry's passion has been contagious.

"The easiest thing in this league is to get paid and just sit on the sideline," Bell said. "Guys do it a lot. It always goes back to what kind of person are you? Are you a guy who really wants to play the game? Or are you a guy who really wants to get paid? With LaRon, you can tell that he loves playing."

The Jets knew in March that Landry might be too pricey to keep beyond the 2012 season if he returned to form. It's a reality that they'll have to confront as they try to re-stock the roster with more difference makers.

Landry isn't overly concerned. His believes that his future remains bright… no matter where it is.

"I'm looking forward to the next best thing," Landry said. "When it's all said and done, I just want to drop down to my knees, thank God for protecting me this whole season and everything else will handle itself."

Both safeties have been consistently solid performers and consistently good tacklers on defence this season, which makes it doubly concerning that neither is locked down beyond this season. Obviously given his age Landry should be prioritised over Bell, but he won't come cheap and we've got a lot of areas where dollars need to be spent.

I would like to bring Landry back, but it depends on the price. Hes fast and a big hitter, but he has flaws to his game and isn't elite.

I'm sorry to say but Landry will not be on the team next year. Not with wanting 7-10 million per year with so much money being tied up in Sanchez, needing to re-sign Mangold, Keller & of course Revis is going to want his deal redone as well. We also need to find another backup QB to be the 3rd stringer if we dont make a mistake by allowing McElroy to be traded away.
I will not be forgotten. This is my time to shine. I've got the scars to prove it. Only the strong survive.

When someone annoys u, it takes 42 muscles in ur face 2 frown. BUT, it only takes 4 muscles 2 extend ur arm & b!tch-slap that mother@*?!&! upside the head!!

One of the few bright spots this year and we probably can't keep him because of the irresponsible way the jets have handled the salary cap of late. How in hell did Sanchez deserve a contract extension and pay raise after last year? Way too much bad money invested in Holmes, Scott, and others.
