ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:06 PM) The JETS shouldn't of signed wilkerson to such a big contract
ganggreen2003 Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:07 PM) he doesn't deserve $17 mil/year cause he is coming off an injury...he should of earned it by playing this year as the Franchise tag and then if he played lights out then you open the vault
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:21 PM) WOOOOOOOO
RetireChrebet Icon : (15 July 2016 - 04:58 PM) How much guaranteed money? also does this mean hes here for 6 years since he's tagged? how does that work?
MikeGangGree... Icon : (15 July 2016 - 10:20 PM) Now cut that street thug Wilkerson!!
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:47 AM) 54 million guaranteed
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:48 AM) 54 guaranteed against injury but 37 in straight guaranteed money without injury
NJAzrael71 Icon : (16 July 2016 - 03:49 AM) Should've waited till after the season to see how he comes off the injury but I guess they figure he wouldn't have signed if they waited another year
vjdbbq Icon : (17 July 2016 - 07:32 PM) Where is ROB and his ass ?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (18 July 2016 - 10:27 AM) guess that means richardson is gone after this season. Maybe we can franchise and trade him
Jetsman05 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 08:52 AM) whos running fantasy football league this year? brotana?
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 July 2016 - 10:25 AM) darron lee still isn't signed... greedy street thug lol
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 July 2016 - 05:31 PM) Rich is under contract for next year and we used a team option for 17 already so he's a jet for 2 more year's for sure unless we trade him.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (23 July 2016 - 02:38 PM) We need to quit screwing around and sign Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:34 AM) Jets salary cap situation is tough next season, gonna have to make adjustments
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:35 AM) the contract for Wilkerson is actually pretty good for both sides, after the first couple seasons nothing is guaranteed and they can cut him.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) the jets probably should trade Richardson, hopefully he has a monster season and we have tons of leverage and deal him off for ransom
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (24 July 2016 - 11:36 AM) Because we cannot afford to keep everyone on the DL
Jetsfan115 Icon : (25 July 2016 - 10:20 AM) we have 20 mil in space next offseason and not many people to sign. We should be ok next year. this year was worse. we could tag and trade richardson if need be. I think he will be gone too
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 07:28 AM) WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ WE NEED FITZ
MikeGangGree... Icon : (Yesterday, 09:51 AM) Yes we do need Fitz
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 10:58 AM) devin hester got cut by ATL today, anyone think we should grab him for special teams?
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 01:56 PM) Grab hester immediately
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 01:56 PM) GM Mike , GET HESTER
vjdbbq Icon : (Yesterday, 01:57 PM) Where is everybody ?

All the media guys say Idzik is a planner. I would assume he has a master plan in place. Probably with options if certain guys fall through. At least I hope.

Holmes lost me as a fan when he got kicked out of the huddle. I say good riddance. Save the money & look to FA or the draft. I am fine with Hill, Kerley & who ever we pick up...Holmes has been injury prone & lacking a TEAM mentality

1. Good riddance: This was a long time coming. The Jets would've cut him last year if it weren't for the 2013 guarantee ($7.5 million) in his contract. Holmes was the ultimate diva, causing problems when things didn't go his way. He was the root of the locker-room turmoil in 2011, clashing with Mark Sanchez in a meeting and getting thrown out of the huddle by teammates in the season finale. Holmes and Sanchez met in the offseason to patch up their relationship, with Holmes telling Sanchez he'd be a team player. It sounded sincere at first, but he reverted to his selfish ways, telling Sanchez he wanted at least five catches per game. Because of Holmes, mistakenly named a captain that year by Rex Ryan, the Jets abolished the practice of making permanent captains. That will be Holmes' legacy.

2. A quarter-million dollars per catch: Former general manager Mike Tannenbaum made a nice trade in 2010, picking up Holmes for the fire-sale price of a fifth-round draft pick. With a substance-abuse suspension looming, the Pittsburgh Steelers were desperate to unload the former Super Bowl MVP. The Jets got one good year out of Holmes, who delivered many clutch plays, but their mistake was overpaying when he hit free agency in 2011 -- five years, $45 million. Holmes benefited from the perfect storm. Because of the lockout, it was a late free-agent period. The Jets didn't have another No. 1-caliber receiver, so they were desperate -- and they got squeezed by Holmes. He collected $24 million the past three years, which breaks down to $255,319 per reception.

3. A hard lesson: The Holmes debacle should serve as a cautionary tale for John Idzik, who soon will be doling out the first big free-agent contracts of his GM tenure: Don't invest significant money in players with character issues. More often than not, you get burned. As they attempt to rebuild the wide receiver position, through free agency and the draft, the Jets should put an added emphasis on the intangibles, looking for team-oriented players not afflicted by the "disease of me," as Pat Riley once said. Granted, it's hard to find those guys at receiver, a diva position, but they're out there.

4. A new No. 1: The Jets just dumped their most accomplished receiver, so they need to find a new No. 1. They have a No. 3 (Jeremy Kerley) and a No. 4 (David Nelson), along with a wild card (Stephen Hill). They can find a No. 2 in free agency, a No. 2 who probably will be miscast in a lead role. The future No. 1 probably will come from the draft, one of the richest receiver drafts in history.
