It is the Jets we have all seen the personalities on that team. Now do i know for sure No, but my speculation is the same is speculating they will restructure.

As has been said a few times now: the cap is not a hard $120m. There are exceptions and benefits that can give a team up to $130m - $140m of room.-

Quote:
Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez wants free agent receivers Santonio Holmes, Braylon Edwards and Brad Smith to stay in New York. And he’s willing to take a hit on his own contract if it helps contracts for Holmes, Edwards and Smith to get done.

“Whatever it takes, whether it’s adjusting contracts, delaying payment, whatever we have to do, our team will do it,” Sanchez said today, in comments distributed by the team. “I know that. We’ll be unselfish with it. We’ll get it figured out.”

Asked to clarify whether that meant he had considered making changes to his own contract to help the team’s salary cap situation, Sanchez answered, “Absolutely, and my agent’s already talked to me about it. Whatever we need to do to win, it’s on. I think our whole team feels that way. If it’s [Darrelle] Revis, me, whoever–it doesn’t matter. So, we’ll do whatever we can.”

Sanchez never actually said he’d be willing to take less money to keep his receivers, but he’s at least willing to re-structure his deal, if that helps. (We’re not sure if Revis is actually willing to do the same, or if Sanchez just thinks Revis would be willing to do the same.)

“It’s important,” Sanchez said of continuity at receiver. “It was such a luxury to have both [Edwards and Holmes] last year. It’s almost unrealistic to have that kind of a receiving corps again. But whichever guys we get back, it’s going to be them playing really well . . . whether we have Braylon and Santonio and Brad, or one of the three, two of the three–whatever it is.”
It seems like he is more worried about the receivers. After all, he will get a bigger contract when his is up if he is throwing to Holmes...

Mike

The Newark Star-Ledger confirms the Jets have "reached out" to free agent Nnamdi Asomugha.

This comes on the heels of an earlier report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that the Jets plan to "make a run at" Asomugha to pair him with Darrelle Revis. Multiple reports suggest Asomugha is willing to leave money on the table to sign with playoff contender, and Rex Ryan's squad fits the bill. Asomugha also has designs on an acting career, which may give the Jets yet another edge.

Default Re: Nnambi and Houston

It's just speculation at this point whether he'd take a paycut to play for the Jets. Because that's the only way I see them signing him unless they want to risk not having any marquee WRs and literally no passing game. Because I doubt Holmes is taking a paycut and we'll see about Edwards.

Everyone is talking about how easy it is getting around the new salary cap. I couldn't find a source stating how the penalties work, except this one.

Quote:
The new collective bargaining agreement formulated in 2011 has a salary cap of $120 million and a salary floor of $108 million, representing 90% of the cap. The NFL's cap is a hard cap that the teams have to stay under at all times. Penalties for violating or circumventing the cap include fines of up to $5 million, cancellation of contracts and/or loss of draft picks.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salary_...cap_in_the_NFL

If this is accurate, doesn't look so easy OR smart.

Check out what Lance Z has been saying about the cap. As far as I know there's a 3 million dollar carry over from last year or something as well as a 3.5 million dollar exemption and some other benefits that can balloon the cap up. You can also do something with money from last year and apply it to the cap as well.

I have, but there's no reference to what constitutes going "over the cap" and what the penalties are associated with it.

Now, here's some GOOD news: Straight from the mouth of Tampa Bay Buccaneers GM Mark Dominik:


Quote:
I asked Mark Dominik about Nnamdi Asomugha specifically. His answer: "I would temper that. The way we’ve been building this football team, the way we’ve been doing this over the last couple yrs, I think there’s a blueprint that’s already sitting in front of you, and we’re going to follow that blueprint... That’s really going to be a key to what you see as time goes on"
in other words, "HELL NO"

I'd be willing to spend $5 mil of Bob's money and give up a low pick for busting the cap to get Aso. I'm of the opinion that he is this generation's version of Prime Time w/o all the BS. To compare signing him to Haynesworth or just about any other high profile FA bust is disingenuous. Aso has been nothing short of a model citizen in an organization known for showboats, malcontents and rebels without a clue. His down side is miniscule as it is. Compare it to his upside and it's a no-brainer. There is simply no other player in the NFL, short of Revis, that could impact our team as much as Aso. I'm including any QB's you want to throw in, also.
