Quincy's Contract


Recommended Posts

I feel bad for Quincy, he had a ton of talent but the injuries were too much. He definitely needs to walk away from the game and take care of himself.

That said, how can Macc have given him this contract?  9 million dollar signing bonus. Nobody else was going to give him that. Just terrible now the team has to eat it against the cap.

Max, you know the answer to that, but are probably to classy to say it. Macc was basically incompetent at every facet of the GM job.

Based on the info in the other thread, he has another $11M (guaranteed for injury) coming to him over the next 2 seasons.

Whoever negotiated that contract was smart. Quincy will be financially ok, but the Jets will be carrying cap dollars for him for the next 2 years.

The mistake wasn’t so much the money, but the fact that he was content with needing Enunwa to be an important cog in this WR group.  Failing to draft or sign any other receiver capable of playing outside was another massive failure in Maccagnan’s long, long list of failures.  You would have thought he would have learned his lesson from last year when they were scouring street corners for receivers.  Nope, not Maccagnan, he was good with Robby and Quincy.

Thats the thing I dont understand. Quincy's contract should have been guaranteed for skill only.

Take the cap hit and move on

I agree it is best for the player to walk away while he can. and for the team to move on and try to find an able body. you dont mess around with neck/spine injuries. 

For Quincy's sake he should retire while he is still can walk

honestly im glad the kid got his money, gave his body for the team.

I'm not. This is business. I want this team to win. The only way they is if they have cap space to sign players. Mac might just as well have flushed the money he gave to Shine a down the toilet. I just hope he gets cut ASAP. He's too brittle to play professional football.

Macc directly after Idzik was a complete disaster for this franchise. There's no way we could have been worse if we simply kept Tanny in charge, tbh. 

I'll never forget 2009 though when Tanny traded up so much in the draft we ended up with 3 players only. Sanchez, Greene, and Slauson. Albeit starters though.

That was better than any single draft Mac produced.

I liked the 2017 draft. Adams and Maye back to back was clever. Great tandem.

If Maye stays healthy, it will look decent.  Patrick Mahomes and Dalvin Cook (who many were calling for at the time) would have been a nice outcome too.

Said at the time that it was a bit like the Kerley extension where you had what seemed like a lame duck GM trying to do something to change the narrative in the locker room and with the media. It was a weird deal. Enunwa had talent and had he been healthy I think could have earned in the ballpark of $10-11M a year. But he was just never healthy and his stats really tailed off as the year went on. I think about a week before he signed someone asked me online about where he was at and I thought he was at the point where he would have to take a 1 year deal somewhere for $4-5M, the way a John Brown did. The Jets really went all in. With the kind of injury protection they were giving they should have been under $8M a year.  There was no need to use a signing bonus the way they did either but I guess they were trying to maximize cap space to sell ownership about the plan they had (and they did basically spend it all before Barr pulled out of his deal. JD subsequently spent that this summer).  Immediately the contract became the new standard for a low to moderate performing receiver replacing the Albert Wilson contract in Miami. Its why Crowder was going to get what he got.

The injury is unfortunate and you cant really plan on that stuff killing you but in this case there was enough of a track record to at least criticize the deal for being so bullish on Enunwa.
