Jets hoping to re-sign DeVito

March, 9, 2013
Mar 9

4:18

PM ET

By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com


As expected, the Jets are trying to re-sign DT Mike DeVito before he hits the open market Tuesday, according to sources.

Of all the Jets' unrestricted free agents, DeVito probably is the best bet to stick around, although he's drawing interest from a handful of teams. It's an interesting turn of events for DeVito, whose future became uncertain last year when the Jets drafted Quinton Coples in the first round. The Jets leveraged DeVito into taking a pay cut, and now they're poised to give him a pay raise. It's a credit to DeVito, who responded with a strong season. It also may speak to the team's concerns about their other interior linemen. Sione Po'uha is 34 with a bad back, and Kenrick Ellis has been slow to develop.

The Jets also would like to re-sign S LaRon Landry, but that's a long shot. Landry is looking for about $6 million per year, probably too rich for the Jets. Falcons S William Moore signed a five-year deal Saturday, receiving an average of $6 million per year over the first three. That could set the market.

Otherwise, it has been quiet on the free-agency front. The league, concerned about tampering, has issued multiple memos to the teams, warning them against breaking the rules during this new, three-day negotiating period.

We have zero cash after the tender on Cumberland and Howard. We going have to either cut Pouha or restructure Holmes and Harris to sign any one.

I'd take Big D and Capt Dianabol over Holmes and Harris in a heart beat. Hopefully there's a way to get them two signed even if it cost us losing the other two.

What really gets me is we pay David Harris a slow as sh@t two down ILB 13 million!
That's 13 Million this year, and we are saying we can never pay Revis. That dumb sh@t Tanny. At this point Harris or Holmes arnt worth a bag of balls.

What really gets me is how seemingly every damn Jet fan wanted Harris on a long term extension and now they're all pissed about it.

Ding! Ding! Ding!

 

And then how thrilled they were when Tannenbaum "got 'er done!"  Funny how much better the deal (4 years $36M) seemed in year 1 when Tannenbaum only had $4M of it count against that year's cap.  Of course we didn't need to worry about anything because supporters of this deal were convinced the cap would be up to $140M by now.  

 

Oops.

 

All I remember was being furious at this deal's outright stupidity.  Harris was never the type of player deserving of a deal like this.  I still say his best season was as a rookie after Vilma got injured and we saw how badly overrated his ass was as well.

Hey I still have to cringe at writing loving things about Tannenbaum.  In my defense, this thread was barely 6 months after we went to our 2nd AFCCG in as many years.  But I hated hated hated this deal.  Actually, seeing the flattery I wrote about Tannenbaum only magnifies it since I clearly didn't have an ax to grind with Trader Mike. If I hated him at that time I can only imagine the things I'd have written about the Harris deal.

 

I take solace in knowing I was right and almost everyone else was wrong.  Have to hold my nose at how horribly aligned I was with Aten's dead-on opinions in that thread.  I was wrong about another mega-type acquisition that never happened.  It was the only way to rationalize the terrible structure (only counting $4M of it in year 1) of a deal that would have still been terrible if it was evenly-spread.  So there was literally no reason to structure the deal that way.

 

Awful, awful, awful.  This was August 2, 2011.  Little did I know then that Tannenbaum would outdo this deal after that '11 season was over by extending/guaranteeing Sanchez after his lousy 2011 season.

You and Jason nailed it. You're very smaht.

Aten was wrong one time (about Iman Shumpert being a bum). He was caustic and mean, but pretty much spot on.

Here's Aten's best line:

 

"God, I'd hate to be the poor GM who has to come in and clean this mess up after Rex and Tanny get fired."

We've already pre-spotted Idzik one lost season. We might have to give him two.

There's nothing like being right.

 

What was it Randall said to the woman in the video store in Clerks? Something like there's nothing more exhilarating as pointing out the shortcomings of others.  Forget the line exactly but that is what I'm feeling.  That, and probably needing a new therapist because the present one is doing as good of a job as Mike Tannenbaum did with the David Harris contract. Hiyoooooo!

Your flare for spin is approaching average to above average levels.

First Idzik eliminates Rex's bestest friend from the roster in a super shocking super genius super cold hearted type move that no one saw coming from 4 years ago. Now he wants to bring back DeVito, who Rex buried all the way to maybe fourth on the DL in one of the heaviest rotations in the league! DA BELLS TOLLING WRECKS!!

No, the surest sign a coach is about to get fired is when that DLman he so hated is maybe being brought back and his best friend on the entire planet is cut for purely malicious reasons. We just did this. You proved it already. The writing is in the whatever the cliche is. The cutting of Scott and possible return of DeVito says everything we need to know about what Idzik thinks of Ryan. We know this because on top of being an elite Message Board GM you are an elite level psychologist, Freud-esque as far as impact in the field, and you managed to crack the weak, non-football mind of Idzik with ease. From there it was just a matter of further Science to infer what you inferred, and here we are. 

 

Can't wait to see who Hot Coordinator is! It's going to be so different that everyone's going to be like whaaaaaaaat.

Wait, are you arguing that the Jets made a bad move by cutting Bart Scott and saving 8.6M against the cap?

No, I'm arguing that it was an extremely obvious move to make four years ago when the deal was made and that you gals are way too into your soaps.
