We would save this amount from each player, if the Jets do what this guy says.
Nick Mangold-$2.4 mil saved
Santonio Holmes-$5.9 mil saved
David Harris-$6.98 mil saved
Antonio Cromartie-$2.19 mil saved
Mark Sanchez-$6 mil saved

It is better to destroy than create what is meaningless, so the picture will not be finished.

These moves don't really hurt us much in the future, we are set up well next year with the cap. We have a lot of holes to fill, so we need some cap space to be able to sign some guys to fill some of those holes. We'll still be able to release Holmes and Sanchez in 2014. Actually, if they really want to save more money with Holmes the guy wrote how they could save a lot but that would then be committing to him in 2014.

From what I read in the article Mangold could push $600k into future years and Holmes could prorate out $10 million per year ect... It just seems like a bad idea to move bad money into the future. We are not going to be a SB team next year. We will have to see what the offseason brings but I doubt we will be a playoff team either. With that being said let's get this bad money over with so we don't have to deal with it in the future so we can have the cap to sign FAs. I don't know but it seems like poor accounting to me.
