Posted 5 Feb 2015NYJ March 19th decision
There will be a lot of speculation in the coming weeks about the future of wide receiver Percy Harvin, who arrived last October in a trade with the Seattle Seahawks.
The New York Jets face a multilayered decision, one that will be based primarily on his contract ($10.5 million in 2015) and the draft-pick compensation they will owe the Seahawks to complete last October's trade.
Here's what you need to know:
The key date is March 19.
If Harvin remains on the Jets' roster after 4 p.m. on the 10th day of the league year (March 19), the Jets must give their fourth-round draft pick to the Seahawks. If the Jets release him before then, they owe the Seahawks a sixth-round choice.
The Jets were smart to make it March 19. Two reasons:
It gives them nine days to explore wide-receiver options in free agency. If they find a better player than Harvin, they can sign that player, cut Harvin and retain their fourth-round pick. The date also gives them leverage in any renegotiation talks with Harvin. If the Jets want to re-work his deal and he declines, the team can keep him until March 18, meaning he'd miss the first wave of free agency -- when the big money is doled out.
If the Jets keep Harvin on the roster beyond the deadline, it doesn't guarantee his $10.5-million base salary and it wouldn't preclude them from cutting him at a later date. But looking at it from a practical standpoint, it wouldn't make sense to dump a player after committing a fourth-round pick.
What if the Jets try to circumvent the draft-pick upgrade by cutting him before March 19 and re-signing him at a later date? Sorry, that won't work. In other words, if they cut him March 18 and re-sign him at any point before the second day of the draft (May 1), they owe a fourth-rounder to the Seahawks.
In terms of the financials, Harvin's contract no longer contains any guaranteed money, meaning there would be no salary-cap ramifications if they decide to part ways. His salaries after 2015 are $9.9 million, $9.95 million and $11.15 million.
Basically, it's a year-to-year contract, so what the Jets have to decide is this: Do they give up a sixth-round pick for the half-year he gave them in 2014 or do they surrender a fourth-rounder for a minimum of 1 1/2 years?
Well this will be one of the first major decisions that Maccagnan and Bowles need to make this offseason. What do you think will happen? I think they will rather give up a 6th rounder over a 4th rounder for him. He did have an impact on this O in the time he was on the team, but now is the time to see if he even wants to be here under the new regime and a new offensive scheme with Gailey...should be interesting to say the least!

So after the CHEATriots went and won the SB last night when Seattle decided to throw the ball on 2nd & Goal instead of trying to run it in that would of led to a Seahawk W, the Empire State Building, one of the most iconic buildings in the NYC skyline was lit up in the CHEATriot colors to "celebrate" their Super Bowl victory. That is a complete DISGRACE!
Posted 23 Dec 2014So as we are about to end this horrible 2014 JETS season. Who is to blame the most for this disaster. Take the Poll and then explain yourself why you voted how you did.
My vote goes to the guy who I was willing to give a pass earlier in the season but damnit he proved me wrong with his ineptness at the General Manager position. So my vote goes to John Idzik.

JETS fans who endure this shit week in week out
Walker for not lateraling it back before getting knocked out of bounds or not breaking it back to the middle of the field.
JETS for Winning when Losing would do more good than harm.
Rex for calling out JETS fans that are looking towards the future since the 2014 season is almost over and he will be put out of his misery as HC of the New York JETS
Posted 14 Dec 2014When the JETS needed a huge L in the hunt for the top 3 pick. The JETS go into Tennessee in a season that they haven't won a game on the road and slip down the board and are currently out of the top 5 spot in the 2015 NFL Draft. The NEW YORK JETS CAN'T EVEN LOSE WHEN THEY NEED TO!!! #JETLIFE
