  1. I posted this a couple of places: There is no "salary cap floor" but a CASH spending floor of 89% cumulative per team over two four year periods, not per year; "For each of the following four-League Year periods, 2013-2016 and 2017-2020, there shall be a guaranteed Minimum Team Cash Spending of 89% of the Salary Caps for such periods (e.g., if the Salary Caps for the 2013-16 and 2017-2020 are $100, $120, $130, and $150 million, respectively, each Club shall have a Minimum Team Cash Spending for that period of $445 million (89% of $500 million)." CBA The league wide spending must be

CBA The league wide spending must be 95% of CASH for the periods (2013-16, 2017-2020). For exam
  3. Could you please explain why this is so "painful" I'd appreciate it.
  4. The actual salary cap number is quite meaningless given the fact that it is the same for every team. Example: The cap goes from $90 million to $100 million. Team A has $1 million in carry over they can has an adjusted cap of $101 million, the rest of the league probable has at least $100 million, unless they had a negative carryover due to earned incentives not counted on the last years cap. Team B has $20 million in carry over they can spend $120 million. Team B has more flexibility to cut players and take on their dead money clearing out space moving forward, the mone
  5. Sperm, I definitely hear what you are saying and a pay-as-you go contract could work here but look at the Philadelphia Eagles just signed Jason Peters, Jason Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and Riley Cooper all with DeSean Jackson having a $12.75 million 2014 cap hit, the highest cap hit of his five year deal which takes place in year three just like the mock contract for Sanders. Also the Eagles are rumored to be in play for Jairus Byrd. They were able to do this by carrying over and that is what John Idzik wants to do. Similar to what Jeff Ireland did with the Dolphins last year, although I doubt
  6. http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jetnation/2014/03/05/ny-jets-free-agency-analysis-with-guest-joel-corry.mp3 Latest episode of JetNation Radio: Know that there has been vigorous debate about which free agents the Jets should attempt to sign. Former sports agent National Football Post columnist and CBSsports.com contributor Joel Corry lays out what players will command on the open market: Byrd, Ward, Ware, Howard, Sanders, Pace, McCown and Vick. He also provides up to date cap figures as well.
  7. The team and Folk have until July 15 to work out a long term deal. This Tag just prevents him from hitting the open market and gives the Jets some leverage in negotiations.
  8. We're back on every Tuesday at 8pm. This show was mostly about the draft with the combine ending. We'll be doing free agency for a few weeks than back to the draft, so please call in I'll keep you guys posted on when we refocus on the draft.

  10. No, Revis needs to be on the Bucs roster on March 13th for the Jets to obtain their third round pick (#69) if he is cut or traded before that date the Jets get the Bucs fourth.
  11. Good job but you forgot to throw in the four or five extra picks the Jets will have with "rumored" trades, which will never happen, along with the third, fourth, fifth & sixth round comp picks everyone thinks the Jets will get.
  12. A.J. Jenkins was taken 30th overall in 2012 draft by the 49ers traded to the Chiefs in exchange for Jonathan Baldwin before 2013 season: 2012 - 0 receptions for 0 yards. 2013 - 8 receptions for 130 yards. Brian Quick was taken 33rd in 2012 draft by the Rams: 2012 - 18 receptions for 302 yards. 2013 - 11 receptions for 156 yards. Stephen Hill taken 43rd 2012 draft: 2012 - 24 receptions for 342 yards. 2013 - 21 receptions for 252 yards. Not that he's been good (has had some moments) or will even remain with the team this season but others have had worse swings and miss
  13. I checked the I tunes store and found the last two episodes done. You can search Jetnation.com or Jetnation Radio I've found it both ways but please keep me informed if you do have a problem.
  14. There was a change in the blog talk system which prevented the show from hitting I-Tunes. Think it's been corrected but I'll be checking and if there are any problems please let us know. Thanks Here's the show: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jetnation/2014/02/12/ny-jets-set-sights-on-glendale-and-super-bowl-xlix.mp3
  15. The difference between Vick and Hernandez is the Patriots released Hernandez out of his contract soon after his arrest but before he was incarcerated. The Falcons kept Vick under contract even through his incarceration allowing them to utilize the forfeitable salary provisions within the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The NFL already provided the Patriots salary cap relief by allowing Hernandez's guaranteed 2013-14 season salary (about $2.5 million) to be voided under "conduct detrimental to the league" although the Patriots did not release him under the conduct portion of his
  16. Under the new NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement they raised the daily fines from around $16,000 per day to $30,000 per day for a holdout and if a player doesn't report to camp at least 30 days before the regular season they cannot accrue a season (this however was not new in the 2011 CBA), which allows for a pay increase and adds a year towards earning unrestricted free agency.
  17. Probably March 17, but not definite yet.
  18. No because it is cash, not cap, and bonuses can be spread out over five years and the cash spent, not the cap charge, is what matters. You can give a $25 signing bonus then next year a $20 million guaranteed roster bonus which gets prorated saving cap space but it is still $45 million in cash towards the salary floor. It is the cash spent by teams not their cap space or lack thereof. Example: Assume four caps each 100 million so, $400 million over 4 years, using easy numbers. Year one team a spends $80 million, cap and cash equal, all cap/cash is equal here, carries over $20 milli
  19. I believe the salary floor is the most misunderstood aspect of the CBA. There is no "salary cap floor" but a CASH spending floor of 89% per team over two four year periods: "For each of the following four-League Year periods, 2013-2016 and 2017-2020, there shall be a guaranteed Minimum Team Cash Spending of 89% of the Salary Caps for such periods (e.g., if the Salary Caps for the 2013-16 and 2017-2020 are$100, 120, 130, and 150 million, respectively, each Club shall have a Minimum Team Cash Spending for that period of $445 million (89% of $500 million))." CBA The league wide spending m
  20. The non-exclusive franchise tag, cost another team two number one drafts picks to sign the player, for tight ends was $6.066 million last year. Teams are allowed one franchise or transition tag, although the transition is almost obsolete. Teams must designate the tag between February 17-March 3. The salary goes right on the teams salary cap but they do not need to be under their adjusted cap number, includes carryover about $625,000 in the Saints case, until March 11. The team can lower the tag number if they can agree to a long term deal with the franchised player by June 15 other
  21. Thanks much appreciated. I often check out the forums for article ideas and what you guys are thinking on the team. Frankly most of the contributors hit on the important points when they aren't breaking balls, .
  22. I like everyone but the slave driver Maxman has me running ragged doing things on the front page.
