I hoped something positive about the Aso-Houston would get done before morning. I enjoy listening to Mike&Mike in the morning but I hate how Greeney will take a general football conversation and transform the rest of the segment into something completely about the Jets.

Here's the difference between the Jets and other teams (like the Texans). They don't say "can't". They find a way. They need a CB, the get Cromartie. They need a WR, they get two in Holmes and Edwards. They need a vet RB, they get LT. A pass rusher? Here comes Jason Taylor.

So I don't put anything past the Jets organization. They are can-do. Not an adjective I would ascribe to the Texans.

If it'sa firm deal, it would also affect the bargaining power of other CB's with other teams. Aso is the creme de la creme. All others pale compared to him.

But I just can not see how they can resign their own FA's (both starting WR's) and a CB that will get 12-15 million. They had major cap issues to begin with.

Yep, it's disgustingly self indulgent. There's already enough about that show that rubs me wrong. Give me Freddie Coleman anytime.

According to Rotoworld.com, Sanchez has over $14 million in salary and bonus due in 2011. So, he can help the Jets out quite a bit by restructuring.

I do think this about Nnamdi -- Winning is important this time around. And I believe he'd sacrifice some money for the right situation.

They can take his salary and move a portion of it to bonus which would then be spread out over his remaining contract knocking his cap hit this season down a few million (probably like 2)
