That's because he was signed 11 seconds after midnight when free agency began. No waiting involved.

So they did the deal in 10 seconds? Deal was done WAY ahead of time as set per NFL rules. Same thing I am saying with a Texans/Aso deal.

No you said you were surprised.

There have been a few teams signing their own guys and not waiting to see what the top player at their position is doing.

I also said "probably" but apparently you're so worked up by this whole FA thing, you're only taking things in black and white or something.

I'm not going to bother digging through the thread but the original question was if there'd been any word about guys like Cromartie and Grimes. I responded to that saying that you're PROBABLY not going to see any movement on the CB or Safety market until the big guys get their deals.

I didn't say that NO ONE, NO CB, NO SAFETY would sign until those guys got their deals although that's apparently how you read it.

So... what's the problem, man? Can I count on you to comb through all my posts now and look for deviations from the Chicago Style Manual and lack of references? Are you looking for something to get worked up about? Because of all the things said on this MB and all the things talked about in this thread, my post was pretty freaking innocuous.

Maybe it doesn't, but you sure don't see any word of Nnamdi on the Texans' official website.

Maybe I'm just having paranoia flashbacks of Carlos Beltran.

Word has it that NYJ are offering ~$12m per ..... the Texans offer is likely higher. Cant compare this to Beltran who was after nothing other than more $$$.


Damn .... I'd hate to see Aso in a Jets uniform.

That said , the rumblings Ive heard are that Aso and the Texans have mutual interest and that Bob is willing to pony up the jack neccessary.

If he does sign with the Jets , I think its more about playing for a coach like Rex Ryan and the fact that they have been to back to back AFC title games than money.

Looking like aso to the jets they seem to have a clear defined path.

They are restructuring contracts and signing players to cap friendly deals. Plus everything I'm hearing is that aso wants ny. He has been quoted saying he would like to play with revis.

Jets definitely have the upper hand.

Maybe texans can still make a play but this would be a legendary haul.

If we can offer 3 or 4 Mill more than the Jets, there is no excuse at all as to why we couldn't sign him. That's a ton of extra money. That would mean we have no idea on how to close a big time deal.

I thought the 49ers were way under the cap & able to offer that $20M Asomugha was looking for.

At this point,barring the already signed theory, the Texans should sign Cromartie now to spite the Jets. It would be double funny if they did this and the league rejected the Jets contract next week when they review them.

It's not a Texans thing. It's the way of things in the NFL. Nnamdi signs with someone and everyone else playing CB on down benefits from it.

I do not plan on judging the Texans on where Nnamdi signs. I will judge them on whether or not they made an attempt, a serious attempt to get his attention and bring him here. For me there is no excuse to not be in the thick of this. If the Texans were never really thinking they'd get him and never really serious about making space to add him then that tells me the Texans are a shit franchise that's serious about the bottom line and not about winning. If they fall short but went for it then I can certainly accept that and will.

I'm really wondering when this salary cap manipulation is going to catch up with some teams. If they're not careful it's almost like paying your debt by getting more debt.

No way they cut Ferguson. They gave him a 6 yr $60M extension LAST year!! He's got like almost $35M guaranteed!

If we do in fact miss out on the Nnamdi sweepstakes I'll be disapointed. I really really hope we can be the frontrunner for Joseph and get him under contract soon. If not him, I mean it sounds like Cromartie could come here. He's far from my favorite but I'd rather him than nobody.

Can anyone point to a single Free Agent Jet from last year that has agreed to terms with another team? I know there are some out there that will probably go elsewhere like Edwards and Cromartie, but until they do I don't think they can sign a new free agent because they finished the season in the top 4. Unless of course the new CBA changed that rule.

If what we've been reading and hearing over Aso over the past 48 to 24 hours is true, then I think this is the likely sequence of events:

1. As soon as the Texans are legally allowed to contact FA, they called Aso.

2. Rick Smith, Kubiak, and Wade probably confessed falling in love with him.

3. The Texans make their offer soon after the small talk, which was likely a very big offer.

4. Aso and his agent like the offer, but want to see what teams like the Jets are going to offer.

5. Jets finally call and profess their love for Aso too and things are finally getting exciting.

6, Jets and Aso exchange contract figures and Aso comes away interested and intrigued by the possibility of playing in the Big Apple next to Darrell Revis.

7. Texans call back and remind Aso about them being able to offer more than the Jets. Aso then says, the Texans are still in the running but he needs time to consider all the options.

8. Meanwhile, the Niners come with a big offer and the added option of Aso being able to stay in the West coast. Aso bumps Texans to the third immediately.

9. Rick Smith and Kubiak know at this point it's unlikely that Aso will be a Texan, so right now they are preparing their scripts on how to explain to their fan base how they were not able to "sell" the Texans. Kubiak will retort to the familiar but nonsensical "it's on me" line. And Rick Smith will probably try to make up by signing as many street free agent cornerbacks as possible in the history of the NFL.

Well looks like Nate Clements got released from SF. With Vance Joseph coming here maybe he indeed could be one of the corners.

49ers informed CB Nate Clements of his release.Clements previously indicated he'd be amenable to a pay cut, but the 49ers just couldn't keep the $15 million he was due on the roster. We don't think he'll be back for less money, either, particularly with San Francisco in pursuit of free agent Nnamdi Asomugha. Richard Marshall has also been linked to the 49ers. The talent-rich cornerback market seems to be waiting on Asomugha to sign somewhere. Clements will fall in line as a second-tier optionhttp://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/2298/player?r=1

Jets Re-sign kicker Nick Folk

Jets stay in the Nick Folk business
Posted by Josh Alper on July 27, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT
Wild Card Playoffs - New York Jets v Indianapolis Colts Getty Images

Nick Folk became a, pardon the expression, folk hero around New York after he hit a 32-yard field goal to beat the Colts in the first round of the playoffs.

He’ll get a chance to add to his burgeoning legend in 2011. Folk’s agents tweeted that their client and the Jets agreed to terms on a one-year contract Wednesday. No financial terms have been disclosed at this point.

Folk made 30-of-39 field goals during the regular season in his first season with the Jets. Folk kicked for the Cowboys before coming to New York, but lost his job in 2009 thanks to erratic kicking following offseason hip surgery. He’s the third member of the Jets to re-sign with the team, joining Santonio Holmes and Wayne Hunter.

My feeling is that if the Jets made the offer then Aso would already be a Jet. They have been in apparently constant contact with each other and know what the man wants. If they offer something, it'll most likely be accepted quickly, JMO.

According to ESPN's Mike Sando, the 49ers' impending release of Nate Clements would clear "more than enough" salary cap space for the team to sign free agent Nnamdi Asomugha.

Clements' release has been disputed by a few national reporters, but we're buying it from trustworthy beat writer Matt Maiocco. Clements was scheduled to count $17 million against the cap. The Niners are known to be "strongly" in pursuit of Asomugha, and they likely now have the funds to execute. San Francisco appears to be neck-and-neck with the Jets at this point.

buddyboy

If what we've been reading and hearing over Aso over the past 48 to 24 hours is true, then I think this is the likely sequence of events:

1. As soon as the Texans are legally allowed to contact FA, they called Aso.

2. Rick Smith, Kubiak, and Wade probably confessed falling in love with him.

3. The Texans make their offer soon after the small talk, which was likely a very big offer.

4. Aso and his agent like the offer, but want to see what teams like the Jets are going to offer.

5. Jets finally call and profess their love for Aso too and things are finally getting exciting.

6, Jets and Aso exchange contract figures and Aso comes away interested and intrigued by the possibility of playing in the Big Apple next to Darrell Revis.

7. Texans call back and remind Aso about them being able to offer more than the Jets. Aso then says, the Texans are still in the running but he needs time to consider all the options.

8. Meanwhile, the Niners come with a big offer and the added option of Aso being able to stay in the West coast. Aso bumps Texans to the third immediately.

9. Rick Smith and Kubiak know at this point it's unlikely that Aso will be a Texan, so right now they are preparing their scripts on how to explain to their fan base how they were not able to "sell" the Texans. Kubiak will retort to the familiar but nonsensical "it's on me" line. And Rick Smith will probably try to make up by signing as many street free agent cornerbacks as possible in the history of the NFL.

10. Say hello to Jacques Reeves and Petey Faggins.

Would you argue that in this scenario, the Smithiak are to blame? From the scenario you presented, sounds like it was just Aso not wanting to come here rather than incompetence on the Front Office.

And that's just it. People a month ago were saying that they wanted to see the Texans push hard for Aso. If they put up a big offer, but were still spurned, they did what they could, there's no fault in that.

Sure there's an aspect of Aso wanting to be in the big market town. I was speculating as to how the whole thing may have played out with Aso (except for step 9 and 10). But I am not convinced that Smith and Kubiak and maybe even Wade are able to sell the Texans properly. I hope I am proved wrong by Friday but until then I'm not convinced by this FO specially Rick Smith.

To me this city is full of bandwagoners and fair weather poops. TT is an obvious exception, but you can even see the magic going on at the main board if you want laughs.

Well as you know I'm a UT fan. I used to have an account on Orange Bloods. You ever scrolled that site? That's probably the worst forum I've ever been on. There is no moderating that board at all which makes it a free for all. The bickering and fighting in that place makes TT seem like "cumbaya session for peace." The homers over there are some of the most delusional sports fans I've ever come across. I have access to my buddy's account, so occasionally I peek my head in there and just read. When VY would get into some problems I'd usually see what was being said and every single time you'd hear so many random fans in there blaming every other person for his failures or his problems. I'm a huge VY fan, but in no way, shape or form would I just ignore the fact that he's made a ton of mistakes and horrible decisions. You'd have to read some of the stuff over there. It's beyond incredible.

Winning the AFC West gets you into the playoffs where anything can happen. I mean the Seahawks upset the Saints last year and if they had played a better first half could have upset Chicago. The problem for the Jets and Texans is NE and Indy. Even with Aso, the Jets may not be the favorite in the AFC East and even with Aso, the Texans would not be the favorites in the AFC South. If you come in 2nd, you could still miss the playoff.

In comparison, with Aso, SF is the overwhelming favorite to win the division.
