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.

Maybe New York Jets general manager John Idzik didn't quite say what he meant. Maybe, when he insinuated to season ticket holders in a conference call that Tim Tebow would be on the roster for training camp, it came out sideways. That's what the word out of Jets land was afterward.

Maybe the plan really is what we all thought -- that Gang Green will try like crazy to see what the trade market is for Tebow, only to eventually cut him.
But in my mind, Idzik had the right idea on Monday. In my mind, it was a Freudian slip.

Idzik said of the quarterbacks, "Let it play out this offseason and into training camp. I think that'll be healthy for all concerned, including Tim." When you press Jets people on that, they wonder if that's what he really meant. But I'm not ready to ignore the line of thinking Idzik perpetuated.

In my mind, that's what Idzik should have meant.

The Jets should bring Tebow into training camp in 2013.

The media is tired of Tebow. He won't be the focus of our world like he was last year. It won't be a circus atmosphere every time he shows up at his locker. The time has come and gone for us to hang on his every word. He'll never be just a guy, but he'll be more of just a guy this time than last time.

Open market
With the NFL free agency period set to kick off March 12, Gregg Rosenthal breaks down the top 85 available players in the league starting with Mike Wallace.

Yet Idzik's words should not have been lip service. Yes, the Jets are open to trading Tebow. They've made no secret of that. That's their ideal.

But it would be better for the team if the rumblings I'm starting to hear are true. On the field, he still could be viable. It would help the team if the Jets were serious about keeping Tebow on the roster through training camp, amping up competition and trying to see if they can gain a return on their investment.

Because why not?

Remember, the Jets originally traded a fourth- and sixth-round draft pick for Tebow, then negotiated a deal to pay $2.53 million of his signing bonus.

The internal rumblings you'll hear from time to time goes like this: They have Tebow. They've already given up the picks and spent the money. Why cut him? What's the hurry?

Take him into minicamp and be open to taking him to training camp in July. See what you have. For real this time.

The Jets no longer are worried about Sanchez's feelings. They've already done their best to avoid saying he'll be the starter, so that's clear. And if Tebow's presence still overwhelms Sanchez, than Greg McElroy will be more than happy to stand under center.

Talk to Denver Broncos people and they can't believe former offensive coordinator Tony Sparano didn't give Tebow a chance, no matter how bad he was in practice. They still think Tebow can win games, just like he did in Denver. New offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg has never shied from a challenge, no matter how unconventional.

Sure, the Jets might cut Tebow later this month, like we all assume. But it's finally time for the team to try one more time to make good on its investment. If you listen closely, that's what it's starting to sound like.
