Jets?Bears suitors for Glennon?

Recommended Posts

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Jets and Bears have "emerged" as suitors for free agent QB Mike Glennon.
It would be quite a disappointing consolation prize, especially for the Bears, who have been closely linked to Jimmy Garoppolo. With the Patriots apparently unwilling to trade Garoppolo, quarterback-needy teams will have to look elsewhere. Glennon, Colin Kaepernick, Jay Cutler, and Brian Hoyer figure to be the best of the bunch that will be available. Glennon has been connected to the Jets for a few weeks now. He's expected to net $13-15 million per year.

The Garropolo thing is going to @#$@ us a bit, as it increases the price on the few other worthy qbs, especially the young ones.  It likely added a million or two to Glennons contract.

The Jets would be wise to just run with Hackenberg. Paying Glennon 13-15 mil would be a massive mistake.

You can pretty well bank on it that the Jets will go after Glennon.  Question is, how much will they be willing to pay?  If the Wilkerson, Fitz, and Revis contracts can be used as a barometer, expect Glennon to be the Jets next $18,000,000 QB

The Jets would do this.  The Jets would sign Mike ******* Glennon to a 15 million dollar contract to flame out like the bum he is. 

Cant wait!!!

That'd be the definition of smugging a jizzbag.

dont mind going after glennon for a one year deal, but no fing way for 15 mill. let somebody else pay that. rather roll with the young bucks. if they suck we get a top pick in a qb loaded draft and if they play well, thats even better

I'd take a shot with Glennon on a one year "prove it" deal to compete with Petty and Hackenberg.  They'll have cap space so as long as its a 1 year deal I don't care what they pay.  The Jets are setting up to suck in 2017, so if Glennon wins some games we might have something here.  Otherwise if he turns out to be garbage, we get a shot at Darnold in the 2018 draft.  Some upside either way.

Glennon will win 5-8 games here accomplishing nothing meanwhile the rookies we wasted draft picks on sit on the bench and rot.

Winning 7-8 games with the total crap defense the Jets have would actually be pretty promising, in my opinion.  5-6 games?  Now that's the risky zone I don't want to be in.

One year prove it deal?  There are way too many qb needy teams for that to be reality.  He is going to get at least 4 years 65 million.  Osweiler got more than that and Glennon has been better.  Not saying i would give him that, inwould not, but thats what he will get.

Let the Bears overpay for him, then.

If the Jets pay Glennon 15mm per year I might lose it.

I would pay him 15mm in a second.

The problem is he is going to get much more than that lol.

If there was not all of this dead money from the cuts and bad contract maybe he could be an option. Dead Money Macc needs to fix the Cap situation before he splurges on a a questionable QB at that price. Smith is a better option and. He will come at a more reasonable price. 

Glennon will not bring the Jets to the SB next season. If he bombs out at that price that means another rebuild after him

Would the RV be a cap casualty? Or do you have the cap space🤑

The jets are not caring much in the way of dead money and can easily go into this FA period with about 60M in cap room. So ... no.

And really, Smith? As in Geno? Drugs are bad, mmmkay?

Well between your $15 million and whatever Woody is willing to pay, the Jets can sign Glennon for more than $15m.

Dead money is a waste. Waste is a huge part of the American culture. I would rather have Smith not win me a SB for a lot less money. I don't do drugs either. I am a physically fit, organic eating Marine Corps vet. Let's just stop with the slurs already.

You don't pay a QB who couldn't start for the Bucs $18mil a year when the rest of your roster is 2 years away.

No, no, no, no, no.  I pray they don't do this.  Why can't they just be patient with Petty/Hackenberg and see what they have???  No need to bring in another qb.  Screw it keep Geno and let him compete.  We'll get the qb in 2018.

The fact is, the going rate for a starting NFL QB is going to be $15 million or so in the FA market.  With limited inventory via FA and trade, the price for both salary and acquiring through trades will be further inflated. This is why it is so important to have homegrown QB's.  Go with the kids this season and they either click or we suck so badly that a high draft pick is within reach.

Being the Jets, my guess is they will overpay on a multi-year deal for Glennon.

Yet If Hack looked 1/23rd as good in real game action or preseason you people would be calling him a future HOF'er

Dead money is a waste. Waste is a huge part of the American culture. I would rather have Smith not win me a SB for a lot less money. I don't do drugs either. I am a physically fit, organic eating Marine Corps vet. Let's just stop with the slurs already.

1) dead money isn't necessarily a waste. it depends on the particular contract. it's like the back end of Sabathia's contract to the Yankees. In a vacuum, a bad contract. but it was needed to sign him, and signing him got them a championship. was it worth it? you can take either side. but calling the deal bad without analyzing the front end benefits would be myopic.

 

By the same token, there's dead money and dead money. The dead money we'd eat from cutting Forte is bad, but that's because the contract as a whole was bad. The Revis dead money isn't awful, because we expected to be able to keep him through this season, and he fell off a cliff. The risk-reward of that contract structure made sense, so you live with the dead money when the risk ends up hitting.

 

The alternative is to go all cash (i.e. no signing bonus proration) and no guarantees - which means you pay significantly more up front to land the same player. A player choosing between two teams offering a player the same money average, but one has no dead money for cutting the player in year 2 & the other it doesn't become cap-positive to cut him until year 3 - which do you think the player picks [all else being equal]? The latter, since that structure creates a virtual guarantee for year 2. So to compete, the all cash team needs to pay more up front.

 

which means that if the player is kept through the early years of the deal, going all cash effectively wasted cash & cap. Either way, you're playing a risk-reward game, and there's potential for waste.

 

2) The idea that the jets would resign Geno - or that he'd take a deal to play here - can only be explained as the product of altered consciousness. Sorry
