Is Clemens a dead duck - ala July 22nd 2010? in NY Jets Forum Posted June 9, 2010 They don't save anything by cutting him as I recall. He was tagged as a RFA, guaranteeing his salary for this year. Don't know how that changes, if at all, if he's cut and another team picks him up. The Jets may still be on the hook for his salary even if he signs with someone else, in which case it's a pure loss (that's only compounded when you add in a salary for Brunell). I wouldn't have tendered him to begin with.
