Many of the same people who have bitched incessantly for a year about drafting 2 safeties and abhor the idea of drafting Minkah Fitzpatrick are now whining that we didn't sign Tyran Mathieu.  If there

What's good with Trent Murphy?

I can't believe I wrote this when it was just easier to type his name into the search bar. The vaunted Bills with one one of their master plan sneak attacks, solid move if he's healthy.

Agreed that it now looks like the Browns will go QB with the first pick. But, after the Browns select a QB, how do the Giants NOT take Barkley? And I really question the Giants trading out of the first 7 or 8 picks because the cream of the crop in this draft is the Quarterbacks, Barkley, Chubb, and Fitzpatrick. This is the Jets great advantage in trading up. If a team above the Jets makes a trade with the Jets, they can still get Barkely, Chubb, or Fitzpatrick. If a team picking in the top 5 trades with the Bills, they can say good bye to their shot at one of these guys. I think this makes the Jets a far better trading partner for the Giants, Colts or Browns than the Bills or any other team. I really can not envision the Jets screwing this up. 

 

 

then again, they somehow screwed up free agency with the biggest checkbook out there.  I didn't envision that either.

Thank you 

Well, Mac increased his offer to ASJ, I'm not sure how significant the increase is but I'd imagine its near Burton's. He left the Seahawks w/o a contract and the hawks are hosting Ed Dickson next. ASJ is now going to meet with the Falcons. Other than that, nothing. I think we're done on the line until the draft outside of a depth signing. We may still sign a WR there was interest in Ryan Grant and Paul Richardson before they signed with other teams.

I think they've done a good job in free agency.

Still need another CB, DE, TE, and K. Would also be ideal for them to sign the Honey Badger (cutting Skrine) and a WR as insurance for Enunwa and Anderson.

I'd give the Honey Badger 4 million more a year than Skrine every single day of the week. I don't care that he's primarily a FS/Slot corner guy is a playmaker that this entire roster is devoid of. Eagles won the Superbowl with a beast secondary and the best slot corner in the league

Have we spent what we needed to reach the cap floor?

I believe $80M was the number we need hit this year. We need to spend a lot this year and next year. It's not really much of a concern but I guess it means we at least spend that much. I'm not sure what we'd be allowed to roll over.

I though that too because of the 80% but apparently it's over 4 years, so I'm not really sure we're right about that. A little more complicated to deduce then I first thought. I know we still have a ton of space but w/ rookies and the ability to roll some cap over for next year when players may actually want to come to play for us without paying them 2-4 million above market price is something to think about.

It is over 4 years. We spent so little last year that we need to spend a ton the next 3. By signing a lot of players the next two years that bumps us up to over that 89% cash spent. We'll be fine hitting the number but it basically means we need to be active this offseason and next year.

I was concerned with our financial flexibility next offseason but I just looked at what's coming off the books next year. Whatever we roll over into next year, plus how much the cap will go up, AND around 48-50 million coming off the books (Carpenter, Skrine, Powell, McCown, Bridgewater, McLendon, Kearse, Enunwa etc.)
