  1. Anderson was not the reason Reddick was drafted in the first round
  2. With all these guys from Temple playing in the NFL do you really think that Reddick got drafted because of Anderson?

  3. “I am stepping away from the NFL at this time in order to spend more time with my wife, Tara, and our children, Gavin and Gabrielle,” Greene said. “I will miss coaching and will try to return after our kids move on to college if a team will have me.
  4. Jeremy Bates has to be included in that
  5. except for the fact that if you read the articles you would have know that the actual cap figures were higher and our spend rate was 84.56% the prior 2 years.
  6. Mind not blown. The problem was idzik didn't spend the money so we didnt spend almost the entire cap every year. The Jets' only change is the large surplus for use in the future. They're sitting on over $20 million in cap space and have the NFL's lowest payroll at just over $96 million. Here's more from Cimini: The Jets have $98.75 million committed to the 2015 cap, according to ESPN Stats & Information. Right now, the league projects the cap to be $138.6 million to $141.8 million -- and it could go even higher. By rule, they're not allowed to be cheap, as they were under former GM John Idzik. The collective bargaining agreement requires teams to spend 89 percent of the salary cap in cash over four-year periods, from 2013 to 2016 and 2017 to 2020. In 2014, the Jets were 30th in spending ($106.295 million) and below the 89-percent threshold since 2013 at 84.56 percent, according to
  7. what young talent would you like to have signed to a big contract back then? Tanny and Idziks drafts were terrible the 4 years before Mac arrived. Sheldon? Glad Mac didnt make that move. Also look at the money other teams had available to spend. Do you think we got every free agent we wanted?
  8. Idzik didn't spend enough money under the cap during his tenure and therefore when Mac took over he was forced to spend money to reach the salary cap floor that teams are required to meet or otherwise they have to give the unspent money to the NFLPA. So in essence it didn't matter how good the player was, they had to spend the money on them irregardless. The tide in the NFL could be turning this offseason. Up to this point the NFLPA has taken a beating when it comes to the new collective bargaining agreement, which ushered in a new financial era of the NFL in 2011, one that featured the middle class being squeezed. However, the tide might be turning this offseason because of a little known poison pill called the “minimum spending floor,” which requires every NFL team to average spending at least 89% up to the salary cap floor from 2011 to 2016. If they don’t meet the 89% floor the owner of each franchise not in compliance will have to write the NFLPA a check for the difference. The NFLPA has latitude to disperse a team's shortfall to players on that team during this period. If the entire league's spending is under 95% over the 4 year period, the NFLPA can disperse that shortfall how it wants. This shortfall is secondary to any shortfall under the 89% requirement. I’m told NFL owners would rather spend that money to improve their teams – either signing free agents or giving out extensions - than write an annual refund check (the floor comes into play in 2016 and exists every year moving forward in this new CBA). Some big spending teams, like the Miami Dolphins, which have distributed $482 million in cash and commitments, will have no issue meeting that requirement. But half the league will be forced to spend $70 million-plus over the next two seasons to reach the minimum spending floor. And eight franchises – the Raiders, Panthers, Jaguars, Jets, Chargers, Cowboys, Colts and Giants – have to dole out over $100 million in actual cash – not contracts – over the next two years. That means we can officially see some money being spent on larger signing bonuses, and more guaranteed money these next two seasons. Here’s a list of the new money that needs to be spent by every NFL team, which is provided to us by Jimmy Halsell, an NFL agent and contract analyst, and it’s paired with the projected salary cap space for 2015.

  9. Below is a running list of UDFAs who have reportedly signed with the Jets, plus some players who have been invited to their rookie mini-camp (May 5-7) for a tryout. The list has been compiled from NFL sources, published reports, and sometimes straight from the players themselves. Check back often, as this list will be updated constantly over the next few days. It can also change quickly as players and teams back out of agreements. Nothing is official until a player actually signs on the dotted line: WR Brisley Estime, Syracuse CB Xavier Coleman, Portland State OL Kevin Kenton, Tennessee State (tryout) LB Connor Harris, Lindenwood DE/LB Rashad Dillard, Troy (tryout) DE Jareid Combs, North Texas FB/TE Anthony Firkser, Harvard P Toby Baker, Arkansas (tryout) OL Kevin Malloy, Albany (tryout) DE Patrick Gamble, Georgia Tech WR Gabe Marks, Washington State QB Dane Evans, Tulsa WR Keevan Lucas, Tulsa (tryout) RB Darius Victor, Towson (tryout) LB Ja'Boree Poole, Ole Miss (tryout) OL Javarius Leamon, South Carolina State LB Austin Calitro, Villanova S Dylan Haines, Texas (tryout)
  10. Yeah. If Hack shows promise the perspective of the team and Mac will be completely different.
  11. Of course if the team is still consistently under .500 three years from now you move on. Point is Idzik showed he wasn't qualified for the job so you can cut bait quickly, while Mac has showed some promise so I am willing to give him more time.
  12. That takes time as well and is more on the coach than the GM in my opinion. When Mac came here he had some bad apples left over from the prior regime that it takes time to get rid of.
  13. I don't think Hackenberg is the key. To me this again is the problem with the media and fan base. Every QB we draft has to be a franchise QB otherwise the gm doesn't know what he is doing, the problem is that most QBs drafted across the NFL are busts.
  14. The draft isn't the only way to bring players in, we still have time to address the oline.
