I think Chris Johnson is acting like they won’t have a full season, if at all, and they’re dumping excess financial ballast before the hammer comes down

The Winters move in particular feels like that.

OBJ is advising him.

Oh well.  We don't need the cap relief this year. 

It was time to bite the bullet and move on.

Exactly.  And, I have no problem with it.

Let's allow ourselves a moment to mourn what many of these guys could have been for the Jets and to thank them for their service....but only for a moment.  There's a new sheriff in town and he's kicking ass, and molding this roster the way he wants it.  I love it.  JD's purge continues and it doesn't matter where you came from, how much you were paid or where you were drafted.  Underachievers and bad attitude guys are long gone (Darron Lee about 12 hours after Macc was fired, Leo traded in-season, Trumaine Johnson as soon as economically feasible, etc.).  Injured and expensive guys going now too (Winters, Enunwa).  Again, thanks....but see you later.

This train is full steam ahead and JD is showing that we're not hauling baggage.

good points.  every year i feel less and less concerned about the players.  and you know what?  they don't care but about the fans either.  that's just the way it is.  we're not going see lots of players spending their whole careers on one team anymore.  why should any fan buy the jersey of a player who really amounts to just being a carpetbagger.

Tell your kids to forget college and perfect any sport with a ball.

Soccer costs a lot in this country.  But honestly, it you're kids good enough it's not a bad investment.  Jay Demerit literally wasn't scouted by a single major school.  But just living near a local research university which had a team and taking summer trip to London... he ended up with a college degree and a Premier League career.  There are life hacks like that... you just have to look for them by thinking outside the box.

I feel bad about Quincy. It had to be done but so much talent if he could only stay healthy. 
 

also unrelated to anything  he has hands down one of the nicest and cleanest autographs in all of sports.

Plus a spot on the USMNT from 2007-11, giving him an additional salary + endorsements.

His net worth is estimated between $1-5M.  Not too shabby for an American 6-1 Center Back.

Wish Q all the best. Can’t imagine he will see a football field again, albeit he’s probably already set for life financially. 

He's barely a millionaire although since 2020 is guaranteed then he'll be ok

Really? Aren’t rosters to be cut to 80 vs the regular 90?

I'm 100% overly caffeinated right now, but I just got the strongest feeling of wanting to fight McCagnan

Collectively, this would be like half the intensity each of us feel towards the dope.

All these moves could have been done by anyone with a brain. 
Purging after Idzik, Macc is easy. Now the hard work begins. I’m liking the cut of this guys jib though after free agency & the draft.

Assuming the guarantee stands Enunwa’s dead money will be $11.879 million in 2020, a loss of $4.078 million in cap room. This is rare to see these kind of releases so I have a feeling that this is simply the Jets using newfound cap space from opt outs to get it off the books now rather than waiting until next year and also prevents Enunwa from being able to opt out to delay the timeline for the team. Enunwa will also carry a $3.6 million dead money charge in 2021.

The Jets look to be all in on creating cap space for next year now that they have traded Jamal Adams and watched CJ Mosley opt out of the season and this should do just that. They are up to $30M in cap space this year and will now be among the league leaders in projected cap space for 2021.

Only the Mosely loss hurts.  The rest of these JAG's, don't really care.

I was a big fan of Q (at least when healthy) but this probably had to be done.

Too bad Cannon couldn’t take two steps with the ball without falling down. 
 

And with that, the last of Idzik’s picks

Too bad he had bricks for hands as well.

Yeah he just wasn’t good on offense at all. He was a really good STs player but it is high time we get a guy that can play STs and contribute elsewhere which I think JD has been working on.

I still maintain that even taking into account all the other complete head scratching deals that MacCagnan did, that signing Enunwa was the worst signing of all time. He was still recovering from a broken neck and we not only overpay but extend as well. I truly believe if we just hired a random fan from this site they would have done no worse than MacCagnan. I liked Q but soured with that nonsense about his rehab

Not only that but they gave him injury guarantees which is the real head scratcher

Cutting Enunwa makes sense because he is never playing another snap for the Jets. Now he can't eat at the cafeteria, or use any of the facilities or services. JD is just getting rid of the Macc stank.

That 10 million bonus in March made it really easy for Mosely to take another year off. I wonder if he was really fully healthy?

It’s very smart on the Jets part. The cap is almost certainly going down next year, and they are going to be able to roll over the saved cap space this year into next years team.

How’s your neck Quincy? Well, the rehab is going well but as you know I had a crushed vertabrea and my doctor has advised me I should quit football. 
No worries Quincy, just sign here, and here, and here.
Quincys agent: Kicking him under the table trying to keep a straight face.
