Chris Johnson asking 2 Years/$10M, Jets want $3-4M per year

azjetfan Icon : (14 April 2014 - 03:44 PM) 18. New York Jets -- Bradley Roby, CB, Ohio State: Surprised? Yes, the Jets need a receiver, but it's the deepest receiver draft in years, and they can find a good one in the second round. This would mark the fifth straight year with a defensive pick in Round 1.
Chaos Icon : (14 April 2014 - 03:51 PM) is he better than Gilbert, Dennard, and Fuller?
Mr_Jet Icon : (14 April 2014 - 03:56 PM) In my biased opinion I don't think he's better than Dennard.

Chris Johnson’s visit with #Jets today went well, from what it sounded like. It’s over now. Nothing final yet, other teams still circling
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 08:25 PM) I think he's just stating the obvious but whatever it's an update
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 10:58 AM) CJ wants 2year, $10 million deal. Jets offered muti year deal, 3-4 mill a year
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Today, 10:59 AM) so he wants 2 year 10 mil and we offered what 4 years 12-15 mil?
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 11:07 AM) @emesola: Chris Johnson is seeking approximately 2 years, $10 million. Idzik is not budging over $3-4 mil/year it seems. #Jets #JetsTwitter
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 11:08 AM) Kristian Dyer has confirmed that Idzik offered a multi-year deal, we're looking at $3-4M per, as Esola said.
santana Icon : (Today, 11:08 AM) Sidney rice coming through
2JBallar01 Icon : (Today, 11:08 AM) I'm guessing 2 years 6 mill is what was offered
santana Icon : (Today, 11:12 AM)

The current market rate for a starting running back is roughly $3M per year. Idzik is offering slightly more than that, and Johnson is seeking a good chunk more.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:34 AM) this is negotiations, Johnson would like to sign here but will try to gauge his value more
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:34 AM) He was at the Knicks/Nets game yesterday
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:36 AM) Idk about the numbers, I read an article that said that the Jets offered a "attractive" deal to Johnson and that it was always a longshot that he would sign yesterday, but the Jets believe the deal is market value for him

The Jets put together a convincing package on Tuesday to him, on and off the field. Now it is up to him. - See more at: http://m.metro.us/ne...h.cFze6cx8.dpuf

Amazing how everyone is signing players at an alarming rate, yet the Jets' (and I realize we have limited cap room) #1 priority is trying to find a trade partner for Revis. In couple of days, the more talented FA's will be gone and the Jets will begin their rebuilding phase (once again) with second stringers who will hopefully catch lightning in a bottle. If they're able to get a 55-man roster it'll be a miracle.

Attacking the FA period and signing big name guys is why we are where we are. Soon or Later we were going to have to bite the bullet. Now is the time. My only real concern is not that we have not signed anyone but that this draft class is average with no real elite players. We will need to draft well.

Drafting well in a "not so good draft class" is even more difficult than the norm. Let's see how well Idzik and his team are at evaluating talent. Only time will tell, but hopefully we'll be able to shake out not so good draft history.

Also not looking for big splashes for Jets, but something. The pickings will be very slim, although there will be many CB's to choose from with many being released. Big loss in FA is Landry...as he's been the hard hitting S we've lacked for years.

Actually this is a great draft, especially for the Jets. It doesn't have the elite top 5 some years have...but it has 2nd-3rd round depth at the positions the Jets are weakest.

Great only if they pick the right players.

This draft is weak at the top, as in there's no Andrew Luck or Jake Long or Cam Newton. There's no consensus #1 #2 or #3. But there's a ton of good players and the Jets are actually doing the right thing. There's absolutely no one who got signed today that we would go after or "need". Yes we do have holes, but they are holes that developed because a few years ago, we had a great 1st day in FA. I'd rather the Jets stand pat, sign a few 1 year deals (like Landry and Bell last year) and wait until Sanchez, Harris and Holmes come off the books. In the meantime, draft well and build from within.
