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 : (Yesterday, 02:38 PM) We need to quit screwing around and sign Fitzpatrick
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 11:34 AM) Jets salary cap situation is tough next season, gonna have to make adjustments
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Today, 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 : (Today, 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 : (Today, 11:36 AM) Because we cannot afford to keep everyone on the DL

Getty ImagesSergeant Bryan Dilberian lost three limbs in an explosion in Afghanistan three years ago. With the help of New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, he’s getting a new “smart home” to better accommodate his needs.

According to Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press, Johnson donated $1 million to the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation for its “Building for America’s Bravest” program. The money donated will build two modified homes, including one for Dilberian.

Dilberian lost both legs and an arm when an improvised explosive device exploded. The blast killed a few others and maimed Dilberian.

The 2,800-foot, three bedroom home will be customized to meet Dilberian’s needs and feature the ability to control various aspects through the use of an iPad.

“It’s going to mean everything to me,” Dilberian said. “I’m not going to be relying on nurses coming to the house. I don’t have to rely on just, people just coming to help me. I love to cook. Now, this is going to give me the fundamentals to cook again.”

Sad part is, that the people that sent him in harms way couldnt provide the proper facilities for this young man! He deserves better, along with the millions of other veterans out there.

My hat is off to Woody though!
