  1. Without making a new thread, how much per year and guarantee are you people willing to go? Seems like most are on board but what's are willing to over pay?

    That's good news being the Packers were one of those teams rumored for Mathieu and they certainly had the cap.
  3. He's taking visits. It's not like he had a tampering period like everyone else.

    There won't be any supply of legit pass rushers to spend anything on. As for the Badger, he played safety as much as he played LB last year and that's just over a 100 snaps. The other 400 came at CB. But in theory your right, however the supply isn't there no matter how much cap space we have. Our next great QB or pass rusher isn't coming from anywhere but the draft.

    Cutting Skrine pays $8.5 mil in cash spending towards Mathieu's deal and yes shave $6 mil towards the cap space if that's what you meant.

    Cutting Buster Skrine pays $8.5 mil of the contract, unless your saying Mathieu is asking for $17 mil?

    That would be gold if Allen was there at 6. Take him and don't look back.

    McCown only counts 5 mil onto the cap as I believe he has a $5 mil base salary and $5 mil signing bonus.
  9. Jets resign Claiborne - 1 yr 7 million

    I would have preferred this be a two year deal to gives us some control. Glad to have him back and wonder how he performs in his new role as a CB2. Now just don't pay Skrine $8.5 mil and instead give Mathieu $11 mil.
  10. AROUND THE NFL FREE AGENCY NEXT >< PREVIOUS Published: March 14, 2018 at 03:08 p.m. Updated: March 15, 2018 at 10:57 a.m. Seven potential landing spots for Tyrann Mathieu Chris Wesseling Around the NFL Writer Print Whereas Jordy Nelson's release can be attributed to a decline in ability, the Cardinalsset Tyrann Mathieu free primarily because of scheme fit and salary-cap permutations. New Arizona coach Steve Wilks is a product of the Carolina system, which doesn't place a high monetary value on defensive backs. While Mathieu struggled to make plays early last season, he showed signs of returning to 2015 All-Pro form down the stretch. FREE AGENCY ▶ Battista: QBs dominated FA before it began ▶ Best team fits for DT Ndamukong Suh ▶ Ranking best fits for free-agent WRs ▶ Top 101 FAs: Who's taken? Still available? ▶ QB Rankings: Best 32 passers right now ▶ Rosenthal: Watkins among overpriced FAs 2018 NFL DRAFT ▶ Picking Barkley at No. 1 a no-brainer ▶ DJ's Top 50 prospects 2.0 ▶ Bucky Brooks' Mock Draft 2.0 ▶ DJ's Mock Draft 2.0 One of the NFL's most versatile and valuable defensive stars when healthy, Mathieu enters Around The NFL's Top 101 Free Agents of 2018at No. 4 overall. Within minutes of his release, two NFL coaches had already reached out to NFL Network's Steve Wyche, expressing hope that their teams would pursue the safety-cornerback hybrid. Examining potential landing spots: 1. New York Giants: Who was running Bruce Arians' defense when Mathieu was in the 2015 Defensive Player of the Year discussion? That would be new Giants coordinator James Bettcher, who knows how to maximize Mathieu's unique skill set. Before dumping Dominique Rodgers-Cromartieearly this week, the Giants reportedly mulled the idea of converting him to safety alongside Pro Bowler Landon Collins. Here's their chance to plug an even better player into that role. 2. New York Jets: Similar to the Giants, this fit is about connections. Prior to Bettcher's ascension, Jets coach Todd Bowles was Mathieu's defensive boss in Arizona. While Bowles is set at safety with the promising second-year tandem of Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye, he could sell Mathieu on the idea of a hybrid role that combines nickel coverage with timely blitzes. 3. Oakland Raiders: The Raiders have a dire need at cornerback and are ready to move on from free-agent Reggie Nelson at free safety. With the ability to fill multiple holes in the defensive backfield, Mathieu would be a three-down godsend for new coach Jon Gruden. 4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: When the Bucs hired Brenston Buckner as defensive line coach last month, Mathieu made it clear that he views the former Cardinals assistant as a future coordinator. Buckner isn't Mathieu's only tie to Tampa. General manager Jason Licht was Arizona's VP of player personnel when Mathieu was drafted in 2013. 5. New Orleans Saints: Saints wideout Michael Thomas has been openly recruiting Mathieu, a former LSU star and proud son of New Orleans. Unless the Honey Badger is willing to consider a hometown discount, though, the Saints might be reluctant to devote more spending to a secondary that has already added safety Kurt Coleman and cornerback Patrick Robinson. 6. Green Bay Packers: New general manager Brain Gutekunst is bringing a more aggressive approach to free agency, opening the pipeline to expensive veterans. With Damarious Randalltraded to Cleveland and Morgan Burnettreaching the open market, coordinator Mike Pettine could use a multi-dimension weapon of Mathieu's caliber to headline an overhauled secondary. 7. Houston Texans: The Texans struck out in their attempt to land former Patriotscornerback Malcolm Butler. Might they switch gears to Mathieu as a fallback option in their secondary? Three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt is already doing his part to lure Mathieu to Houston.
  11. Jags sign ASJ

    Jaxs 8 home games in tax free (state) Florida would beat our matching offer of 2 years $10 mil.
  12. Jets Expected to sign C Spencer Long

    Average year salary sits at $48 mil total for our FA signings.
  13. Jags sign ASJ

  14. Crowell isn't upgrading Powell but replacing Forte. Also with Powell turning 30 and going into his last year it's wise to look ahead instead of making it an immediate need next off-season. If we have our second day pick we may still draft a RB. You can't force guys to take your money. If that were the case we would be better off. Hopefully drafting a QB with some potential, sparks some interest in next years offensive FA class.
