In Response to Jets FA's + Draft =??????
[QUOTE]We all know the Jets were built for this year and this year only. Will we see them anywhere near the playoffs next year?? I'm sure they will be pretty good but will they be able to talk the talk and walk the walk...JUST ASKING??? BECAUSE I DON'T THINK THEY WILL BE ABLE TO!!!!!!

What we are not analysing is the fact that there are a great deal of players on that will come off there books and they are not afraid to spend
This year they were at approximately 136 million
Next year they are @ 117 million
But they have
When all the dead weight, retreads and busts are released they will have an additional 6 million to recover in cap space...
Which means they will have roughly 20 million to spend before they re structure there current contracts to make room for the rookies and UFA's
Players they may miss who are better than a one year minimum salary and may not stick around for short money or short terms because OTHER teams have noticed there VALUE
With some restructuring i suspect they can afford to keep three of there current players;
This leaves the following looking from the outside in;
I think Holmes likes it there, Smith is a Jet lifer and NO ONE wants Cromartie on there team so even he may stay.
Bottom line they are coming back with less ammunition, they do not have enough picks #'s 30, 94 and 126 in the first four rounds. they lost there fifth to the Steelers, there second to the chargers...
Bottom line YES they are DONE!!!!!!!!
I had to right it all down to come to that conclusion!!
