No mulligan for Mulligan

The Jets are ready to say goodbye to oft-penalized TE Matthew Mulligan, a restricted free agent. The team isn't planning to extend a qualifying offer, according to a league source, meaning he will become an unrestricted free agent.

It would cost the Jets about $1.3 million to tender Mulligan, a move that would give them the right of first refusal, but they're not willing to pay that much for a No. 2 tight end. They could always re-sign him at a later date for a lower salary.

Mulligan started nine games last season and ended up playing roughly 40 percent of the offensive snaps, driving everyone crazy with his penchant for penalties. He was penalized nine times for 64 yards, the second-most on the team. Only RT Wayne Hunter was flagged more often than Mulligan. What made Mulligan's miscues so maddening is that six penalties were of the pre-snap variety. He was used primarily as a blocker, finishing with only five receptions.

So where's the learning or building the guy into the position?...I guess NFL really stands for Not for Long....

Muligan should have been made an example of in the middle of the season. You can't stand in front of every podium you see and predict greatness, predict Super Bowls, and then allow mediocrity infiltrate your locker room. Gone are the days when Bruce Coslett would claim moral victories for close losses.

Thank God. Good riddance you assclown.

It always made me laugh how he'd go back to the sideline and argue with the coach, like the false start was not his fault. Good bye don't let the door hit you on the a$$ on the way out!

Whatever his salary he will cost this team too much if he comes back!

per Tanny: "...as always, we will look at available options to improve our roster, at this point Mulligan is still viewed as being a part of the team moving forward and we fully expect him back"...

He has Chad Pennington Disease - he lives in the fantasy that he has value to the point of be cocky about it. He is a mentally deficient anus who will fit real nicely on the Rams with Bri - Bri.

Cumberland will be back and make us wince at even the memory us this turd.

What are the RFA rules? IIRC, there is some condition where teams get the pick that the player initially was - meaning Maybin is a first, but I think Mulligan was an UFA. I'm not sure they'd get much if anything back and would only get the option to match. This might have almost nothing to do with whether he is coming back and everything to do with his salary for 2012 if he does.
