    • Well,what is best for the team is usually best for the fans.  Crowder getting paid more money is only good for Crowder, not necessarily for the team. It's a zero sum game with a salary cap.  I want the Jets to win.  I could care less if Crowder gets an extra $5 million over market and how he uses that money.It's not going to positively impact my life as a Jets fan and it may cost us another player.  Crowder's contract is not guaranteed, so yes he has a contract, but the Jets are not legally obligated to pay him that money until the first game of the season. So, technically, the contract is worthless and Crowder knew that when he signed it.  Essentially the Jets and Crowder are determining what his contract should be for 2021 and if they can't agree, Crowder will be cut and free to negotiate a new deal with another team.  Both are acting in their self interest.  As a fan, my interests are served if the Jets sign Crowder to a contract that matches his market value and maximizes cap space. I am not served if Crowder is paid over market and is able to use that money to buy a bigger house.    
    • He’s unlikely to get a $10 mil contract though. That’s the foundation for the request. I saw a stat that said the average salary for a slot is just about $6-7 mil. I don’t know where I saw it or id post it for ya. But with Crowder’s Injury history it’s gonna be tough for him to achieve this contract number again. That’s why he was not traded most likely. His contract is prohibitive for teams that might’ve been interested. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
    • Agree with much of this but parcels was always yelling. I made it to a few practices at Hofstra during his years and his voice could be heard all the time. I’m not sure if crowders money can be increased by the carry over or not. We get his $10 mil back next year anyway after the contract expires. If we trim it $5 mil that will carry over but then we only get $5 mil back from his contract. Still $10 mil. That’s how it looks to me anyway. I might be wrong. If they want the money back it just seems like they might want to spend it. 🤷 Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
