I just don't understand it and it doesn't seem fair. It just can't happen. There is a cap for a reason.

Um...Denver and San Diego were top seven passing teams last season. SD 5th and Denver 13 in '09. Denver 3rd and SD 7th in '08. The Chiefs have been consistently bad over the same period, never getting better than 20th.

What about the $45 million up front money Aso reported asked for?

The acting thing is nonsense, and I can't imagine anyone actually making a decision like this based on something like that.

They are not disregarding the cap. They are better at manipulating it.

The Texans need to take lessons on cap management from the Jets. They seem to always be up against the cap. But sign atleast 1 FA, or trade for an impact player every yr.

The Texans need to fire Rick if he cant figure out how to play with the big boys.
Unless Rick has a mandate from Billionaire Bobby not to spend major $$$$ in FA.

The jets are movers and shakers. While Billionaire BoBBY doesn't want to do anything traumatic. Those 2 AFC Championship game with a young QB sure do look sweet. Does anybody else see the difference between the 2 teams and why one wins and the other is just hoping and praying they can make the playoffs.

That and the fact great players want to play for Rex and dont want to play for Gary.

Schefter: Baltimore, Tampa, Dallas, Houston all in the mix for Nnamdi. Houston has the biggest need. Holmes deal makes it a little more difficult for Nnamdi-to-Jets but Jets still not out of it. They're going to try and get it done.

Even though its prorated it is still extra on top of the contract number that goes twords the cap yearly. If the Jets do get this done they are going to be fantastic against the pass as far as wideouts go. Though when it comes to pass rush and defending the run or pass covering TEs is going to be difficult due to the players they can not sign by doing this deal. Not to mention that they will have only one real passing threat,their offense will suffer as well.

Default Re: Nnamdi and Houston

Honestly, I'd rather play in New York City than Houston if I was a professional athlete. And I grew up here in Houston. I don't think the "acting angle" is going to be any where close to a deciding factor but NYC easily has more draw than Houston. There's tons of movies and tv shows filmed at New York locations each week. Pretty easy for Nnamdi to take a cab 5 minutes during an off week, or an afternoon after practice for a short bit to be a cameo in some show. Plus he's so active in the community and public service things, I can easily see the appeal of how close other major cities are. The ability to go to DC and back so easily, for example. Houston is at a disadvantage in that sense.

I really really hope this becomes too tough for the Jets to accomplish. Sanchez can restructure his deal and he easily has the biggest effect on the cap this year. I think this is actually something the Jets can get done... I just hope we're offering enough to sway him here to Houston. If the Jets offer him $12.5M/ year, I hope we're offering $15M. And more guaranteed money. That's $10M more over a 4 year contract and that's some dough.

Keep in mind that with the Jets being in NY, it makes sense the most news is coming out of there.

I only hope his agent has the Texans on the the line as well.

Like All-Star said I have a feeling that Nnamdi is waiting to see if the Jets can literally pull a miracle.

One positive IMO is that you've heard nothing of the Texans going after another CB. You'd think if they weren't after Aso they would have moved onto someone else by now.
