Secondly I admit to having a bad memory retention of cap rooms etc but Tampa Bay has tons of room and a dire need at cb after trading that malcontent to the Pats ?
With the recent sound bite today from Revis it seems more and more like he will be playing in another uniform this summer. You are right that the Jets may not get a a quality picks as much as fans would like given the exorbitant money he is looking for. Unlike some of the other replies to your post I concur with you signing of Braylon at 2M (maybe includes easy to attain bonus connected to staying on the field), the aging Moore at OG and our kickers. I am not crazy about Folk but he is more consistent than what we've had, I don't want a rookie kicker ...
Neither am I a fan of Matt Moore but I understand at the money the Jets have to spend there is nothing but backup quality out there.
Nah, I was a season ticket holder in the 80s through all those 2-14 seasons besides the SB run in 85- I actually gave up my tickets in 93 when Kraft bought the team. I built may house and had my 2nd son, and my wife thought my tickets money could be better put to use on our house. Then lo and behold the playoffs every year but 4 since then.
Yes Tampa has plenty of money cap wise this year, but they have plenty of holes also. What I am saying that if I was a tampa fan I would rather have Millner at 13 and 2 of the 4 probowl safeties that are FA that you can get for 6 mill a piece. Go in FA and get Gary Williams, Cason, Jenkins any of those 6 mill a year guys on the other side. Millner, Williams, William Moore, Jaruis Byrd. Instant solution to the problem. At the same price as Williams and Revis by themselves.
I rather have 4 guys two of which are probowlers, making 22mill than two corners even if one of them is the best in the game. There are 4 guys running patterns and only one revis.
