Nobody here will believe me. Take some time and think about this before you blast me. What if Mangini wanted to get rid of Kendall only because he was somehow tied in to the dog fighting thing with Vick?
Think about it...
It really is the only logical explanation. Kendall is a good player. Mangini is a good guy. He would have certainly just given Peter more money. Except the Jets know there is a scandal looming.
In Vick's court papers it said that there were several unnamed players that may be brought up at a later date, including a Top 5 NBA star. They will all be prosecuted. Now is not the time.
So Mangini decided to rid himself and the team, of this potential distraction. Could you imagine Super bowl week and all they were asking is dog fighting questions? It would be bad and I am glad Eric had the thought to get rid of this problem now.
I have no first hand proof that Peter was involved. This is just speculation on my part.
