  1. I like JD as a GM but is still new in the job. Yes, GMs have a lot of balls in the air. It becomes about prioritizing those balls. A NFL team without a starting QB signed on the roster and you draft a QB #2. That is your first and only priority. If the reports are true that he did not start negotiations until last week and then asked for 30% of the signing bonus to be delayed a year (something that is not a common occurrence for a top three pick) is a rookie mistake (or ownership mandate). I say this as someone who likes his draft picks and understand his FA signings as they are logical.
  2. There is actually no tax benefit as his base salary puts him into the top bracket. He will likely realize the same tax Payment if he split the bonus over two tax years. He would however lose the time value of the $6million. A guy with a billionaire uncle probably has some wise investing opportunities for Zach. If the hold up was holding 1/3 of the bonus from the number 2 pick (something that has probably not been done) it is not a great look. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  3. This this tweet has any truth to it then it is well deserved heat on the Jets. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  4. Zack is simply asking for all the cash he is entitled to being the number 2 pick. The number something he can’t negotiate as the CBA dictates the low contract amount. Yes the 35.2 million is a bargain! Just think back to 2010 and Sam Bradord getting 78 million for 6 years with $50 million guaranteed. JD or the Johnsons are embarrassing the themselves over a couple hundred grand if Zack busts. It’s penny wise and pound foolish. If Zack busts JD will be out the door before Zack. You can simply pass on the off set language because he is a number 2 pick. If the Jets are picking inside the top
  5. Now Zack is the last one standing as Lance just signed! Time to get it done. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  6. To the folks that think JD should be playing hard ball on the offset language. My question is what does it do for the team in the long run? If the answer is cash (cap space is a non issue as if will be counted) what do you that number will be? For the offset to kick in it has to be an unmitigated disaster. Zack has to bomb so badly that he is not tradable. (Worse than Sam) Zack gets released in year 3 with his 4th on the books. Say that year counts for $10 million (just for a round number). If the offset language is in place what do you think Zack will sign for with his next team as a
  7. Dealing with the number 2 pick and a QB to boot vs back dealing with other draft picks are very different animals. I have never said a deal will not get done. When you are picking top 3 and player and agents expect that there will be no offset language nor bonus money being deferred. Later picks in the first round know there is a very high chance that offset language and deferred money are on the negotiating table. Not sure I’d call Zack spoiled as he is entitled a X under the CBA and he should get all he can. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  8. This is the only way to look at it! You pick 2 and worry about year 4 and offset language or bonus payout timeframe for a QB!?! The negative implications that doing this so early in JD’s career can have an impact in future drafts. Look at San Diego, not just the Eli situation but they always have extended holdouts over rookie contracts. Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  9. Lol. This is still going on. Great analogy (sperm) on a prior post. Jetnut you are looking at the assets involved and misses the contract negotiation part of the deal. It really doesn’t matter the assets involved I used real estate as it a common contract people go into). So lets just call it a widget (throwback to ‘Back to School’) there is something that the seller wants to sell for X (highest price) and will to take Y (floor) and buyer want to pay A (lowest price) but willing to pay B (ceiling price). If X and B are too far apart there is a very short conversation and you never get
  10. Lol. Sorry, I don’t sell houses. Just been a part of a ton of contract negotiations on various types of transactions. Real estate is just an easy example many people can understand as they have dealt with such transactions. In many cases they have received a lowball offer and nothing comes from it. What did JD offer on the tag? That is the number that sets the market for 2021. Very simple concept. All negotiations start with an offer. If it is not legitimate it generally goes no where. People tend not to get invested in protracted negotiations when there is never a serious offer. J
  11. Agree to disagree on negotiations. Everyone has a cap. Real estate is not simply buying a house for 15/30 years. There are also investment/commercial long term/short term investments, partial interests, however one common thing in all negotiations is the offer. If deemed too low there is not bargaining the finer points. That is a basic concept in all business. As for market price that is already set by JD when he tagged him at 10.6. Market value is simply what the market will pay and 10.6 is being paid this market value. If he was not “worth it “ it would not have been offered. To
  12. Gilmore signed a long term deal and is unhappy in the final year looking for a last contract. Maye is not a long term guy here. He is a 2-3 year max guy. Signing a two year deal at an average of the tags could have benefited both sides. Jets get a solid professional who plays his position well and in his prime. If one of the draft picks can take his spot then he could be traded for less than a tag price and if Maye plays out the contract he would be free to get one last swing at a contract at age 30.

  13. The negotiations of putting together a contract (real estate/service) are far more similar to each other thank you’d think. All kinds of in/out, reverters, penalties these can be fairly limitless. In both cases the offer has to be there. Offering 20% of market value (10.6 as it is the guaranteed amount for this year) as done by JD (not 20% of the asking price) is a non-starter in any contract negotiation. (I say this with practical experience) Sent from my iPhone using JetNation.com mobile app
  14. Service contracts and real estate are not that much different in the offer process and actually fairly similar. There are out clauses, riders and such. For instance, the house seller (or player) is offered an all cash deal (a high percentage of guaranteed money) they will likely take that over the deal with a higher offer and mortgage contingency clause or for a player higher salary but cut-able in the early years. In this case Maye is guaranteed 10.6 for this year. It is a bird in the hand. If you want to extending years at a lessor rate you really have to take that 10.6 as a sunk cost
