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.

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.

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.

I think the main draw is Revis. if I were a NYJ fan I would be absolutely giddy about forming a duo like that.

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.

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

No amount of money will get him, if he wants to play in NY.

And all of us have wasted 2 days of watching and waiting for the Texans to sign him.

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.

Don't have a good feeling about this. Rick better be on the phone with Joseph's agent.

What really pisses me off is that the Jets offer @$12 mill/year is out there for the world to see right now. Step up management, let us know that you are trying. It's time to grow some nuts and compete. Let's hear the offer that you made.

On second thought. If you wanna go to New York, take your happy butt over there. I don't want anyone who doesn't want to be here. Call me crazy but I like rooting for the guys who want to play here and don't make us kiss their butts to do so.

You know if the whole Jets thing is just posturing from Nnamdi's agent to balloon our offer up to near $20 million I will have a heart attack.

I am 100% certain Rick has been in contact with Joseph's agent, along with just about any other decent CB. They are all on standby, waiting for Nnamdi to get a deal done. All the losers in the Nnamdi stakes will rush to the next best thing when the flood gates are opened in New York.
