Can idzik play corner , he is a cheap as a scrooge . i guess its kyle wilson  opposite milner or cromartie.a as plan b hate to draft a corner in a wide receiver rich draft what a waste, idzick plan is to have teams waste all cap space and get all the crumbs left oveR

IDZIK must be low balling free agent's . why hasn't he signed a player of significance . DECKER was denver's  3rd best receiver . CURLEY is better than him . you need the threat of a game changer.$40 mill to spend and this is what they come up with ??? IDZIK GET OFF THE COUCH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope someone else signs DRC, I don't thinks he's worth the money.

Johnny Boy is Embarrassing Us as a Team. And this guy wants to pick his own Head Coach? All he is in the AFC EAST is a College Scout. THAT'S iT! He's trying to low ball all these free agents with a lot cap room. What a waste of time. FIRE JOHNNY NOW!

Pace only produced on his one year contract (vs the multi-year deal), so he better be releasable after year 1 on his new deal. No, I didn't read the description of his new contract and don't care enough: this was just a concern I have with him. Were his 10 sacks just a product of Rex's better use of him, is he a real late bloomer, was he better motivated in the last year of his contract or was it a combo of all of the above? It's not a big deal, but we'll soon see.

i cant believe everyone here saying they have faith and trust in idzik. why? what move has he made that proves this? he has blown this whole free agency by being "patient". look how patient the broncos and pats have been 

idzik is a joke

Id like to think Rex and co. are just clowning Manish now.


Rex-"Hey Cro tell him were about to sign Pettigrew." 

Rex- "Ok now tell him we better get DRC or Im not gonna be happy."

Rex- "Here sign your contract Cro but dont tell Manish."

I trust that Idzik is setting the Jets on the right course for success. These things take time.

Jets cap space goes to 32 million when they release Sanchez.

@KristianRDyer 

A source w/in the Jets organization just told me "Isn't close to panic mode. Still good value in free agency and moving forward." #nyjets


Next to Idzik, I trust Dyer the most. So chill out, Jets fans. The end is not nigh.

"Jets have shown interest in free agent WR Jacoby Ford" - Costello


Obviously at this point any "interest" rumors have to be taken with a Damon Harrison-sized grain of salt, but I'd be happy with him. Besides taking the top off the D, I can see him doing some of the speed stuff we hoped Goodson would handle, ie kick returns and wildcat trickery.

Ryan won't be happy if Giants sign DRC, you mean. Its's early, understandable. Thought I'd let you guys know!

I also want to add I don't want another AFC Championship game and get all hyped up and lose, Building with free agents just tie up your money. They got Decker and Gino they did good. Now go get some guys in the draft we have 11 pics. Even thou I was on Rivas I'm glad he;s not here because he is a greedy SOB and he has proven that he is all about him.

So I guess Manish is wrong.  If the Jets sign DRC, Rex won't be happy.

Bent, What are your thoughts on jabari greer, I dont know much about him but it seems like hes one of the last fits on the corner market

Kirk Michael

so sign  Colon, would love Sidney Rice, either cro then obviously draft odb trade up to get amaro n get a 3rd back in the draft but if we end up with 17 mil give wilk his deal wats it gonna take 10 a yr for 5 if he was the oly one he would get more I think wilk woud understand we need to have doe for coples rich n Harrison wen the time comes n most likely g n d. Those six players r hopefully the core of our team along with the receiver we draft this yr n I value kerley n now decker.

@McGeorge  As opposed to having Milliner and Walls as our starting CBs? Seriously?  We need MASSIVE secondary help.

Just stop that silly talk. Please. If anything is an embarrassment, it's posts like this.

stop trolling, dude. the fact he's doing the opposite of the guy who got us in this mess is a good thing in and of itself. plus, the 2 teams you mentioned, who are qb'd by 2 future HOF-ers, are a bit more in a "win now" mode than the jets. don't you think? so just chill out....and stop reading manish and cimini.

levi

 In case you havent heard this before the Broncos and Pats are in "win now" mode. Their window for a championship is closing fast so they are going for broke. We are in a totally different situation....No joke.

they have aging star QBs that going for it before them bums retire.....we got 2nd year QB and a young team.....wake up

@levi  it's gotten so bad w/ manish that cimini is clowning him too.

@jake100 DRC will likely sign with the Giants, so Rex will get to freak out some more.

@jake100  that's the ciminidot fanning the flames of moron-ness. 


he is so outside the jets inner circle and now grasping at story straws, he's quoting the former jets GM. #suchaclown

@funkymonk jacoby ford ..pathetic..already at plan c's .. oh I guess no one else is jumping at below market value. Smart moves Idzik. Perhaps CBS can offer james jones a reality show so hell take less to move to ny .. that would be far more effective than whatever idziks doing. 


Good move locking up pace.. dont let him get away...but MJD lets just see what happens

@funkymonk  Ford makes sense given the Jets had interest in Andrew Hawkins.


Similar kind of player, not quite as good though.

@funkymonk

 ahhhhh "interest "


that's probably code for something... the media is probably one big drug conspiracy lol

@jdb4  looks like a typo I think it's supposed to be Giants.

Bent
Bent moderator

@greggreen  He's pretty old and quite small.  A starter-level player, for sure, but only really a stop-gap and perhaps not an ideal fit.


Don't view "the CB market" as just the UFA list...there will be cap casualties, trade possibilities and the draft to come.

@Paul Samuels @frustjetfnGood. That says more about Idzik's thinking than anything else and it's the right way to do things. I'm very tired of long-term deals (like Sanchez') that hog tie the team wrt future moves, but provide a cushy future for players and allow some players to mail it in.

@bonozoffa  they have money!!! something they havent had in a while. and this is the year they're going to be "paitent". nah let's not worry about winning now. we dont need to win now. let's just go 8-8 that's cool

@Monty Granito @funkymonk  I think Ford is good competition for KR / PR rather than being a pure WR option. Especially as that position and role was an absolute dumpster fire last year.

@Bent @greggreen

Actually, Cro is still out their although I would prefer not, also Mike Jenkins is more of a press CB ,who is available.  Carlos Rogers can play press although he has lost some of his speed.  Eric Wright and Antoine Casaon are also physical man CB's.

They would be better scheme fits to me.

Not making declarations on skill, just style

How many teams are going to be cutting quality starting CB's who aren't 35+?

@bonozoffa  C'MON MAN THEY GOTTA SPEND THE MONEY ... player'as are flyng off the board ,they have nothing on OFFENSE !! FIRST GAME WITH THE PATRIOTS ... PAT'S 38 - JET'S 13

bonozoffa
bonozoffa

Less last year, they have had money every season. This year, they have more thanks to Idzik letting go of all those bad Tannenbaum contracts. But who do you want them to spend that money on? Players who either don't fit what the Jets need or players who don't want to play here? Because less a player or 2, that's all that's out there. Just because you have money, it doesn't meant you should spend it. Just gotta chill, man....

How are the Jets worse than last year. They cut Cro. He sucked last year. They cut Holmes and replaced him with a better WR

Brendan

@Wayno  Neither team has a "do nothing" GM. The Mets' have a GM who has a miniscule payroll in an uncapped league. He makes great trades, but he's hamstrung by the cheap owners. Nothing like the Jets' situation. 

Brendan
Brendan

@Wayno  Can you please explain to me what the Mets' owners spending less than the Twins and Royals in an uncapped league has to do with the Jets spending close to the cap every year for the past decade? 

Peter Whelan

@Wayno  not saying it's the completely right thing, but the opposite of wrong is....well, more right than wrong. i'm far from being a idzik defender. all i'm saying is that we've got cap room, 7 more weeks before the draft, and then a draft w/ (potentially) 12 picks in it. so let's where we are then. in the meantime, idzik attackers just need to chill the eff out.
