The Jets reached out to free agent CB Asante Samuel after Dee Milliner and Dexter McDougle's injuries, but are "unlikely to sign him."

FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports the Jets are trying to "bargain shop," but Samuel wasn't having it. Samuel must be quite willing to retire because he hasn't had any other known nibbles since the Falcons cut him last February. He would be a candidate to start Week 1 in the injury-riddled Jets secondary.

lol.....the guy isn't even playing I wonder how much we are offering him.

 

the other side of the equation is how ******* cheap are we trying to be? we need some sort of serviceable cb's and Samuel might just be the best of what is sitting home

 

as long as we guarantee his contract for the year and aren't just trying to rent him for a few games then I'd think he should be willing to take vet minimum

They're desperate, but I'm not sure that means they should overpay for a guy who nobody is even willing to bring in for a look.

He seems to be the best available cb on the market.

My question is if Idzik has ever lost a bidding war to a couch.

the jets have a ton of cap space right now.   remind me again why they didn't sign one of the good free agent CB's during the off-season. 

 

someone needs to tell Idzik that the cap is going up significantly over the next few years.

Agreed. But I dont think they will find any press corners at this point.

Man, the "old" days of when we had Revis and Cro at the top of their game.. Samuel was good in Philly, but we would have laughed at the notion of needing/wanting him. Now..

 Man-to-man corners are the real good corners.  Maybe the Jets figure that if they need to go zone, they can do it with the people they already have.

Press coverage is basically getting banned after Peyton got bent over at the Meadowlands....which in turn could actually make Rex, obsolete?

Yeah and that's probably a good decision at this point, tbh. Still doesn't change the fact that they should have come away with one in free agency.

I don't understand that, nor do I understand why even asking that question gets you flamed around here.

 

Why is Idzik still trying to "bargain shop" at this point? SMH...

The guy is stuck on pinching pennies. Frustrating.

 

And no, I am not advocating he overpay for Samuel. I am saying, lets be realistic and not try to win a Super Bowl with bargain parts. Idzik thinks he is Seattle.

I'm going to sell you a Pinto, but charge you for a Bentley.

Pretty much the same thing.

Nah, more like trying to take a fair crack at the guy. Its not about overpaying, its about something more realistic than basement prices.

Actually, yeah, it sorta does. If you want to be as cheap as possible you sign high risk guys on the cheap like Patterson. If they break down, you shouldn't be surprised.

 

New England upgraded their corners with the best of the best. The Jets added 2 injuries waiting to happen in Patterson and McDougle on the cheap. Sometimes you get what you pay for and Idzik refuses to pay. As a result, our secondary is garbage.
