In Response to Re: Jets resign Holmes
[QUOTE]Wow, this is an impressive signing by the jets. I don't know what else they will be able to do now as far as other signings go but if they somehow also land Asomugha then Rex will be boasting all year about the Super Bowl and rightfully so. This will give them their best chance, IMO. If they would get rid of Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator then that would really increase their chances.

I actually think it weakens their chance truthfully.
Here me out on this one. Between Holmes and Aso and their rooks they will have no money left for FA and they are going to have to release some players as well as do a bunch of restructuring (which will kill them going forward). They will also have to use both exemptions which further eats away at future caps.
Now if they can't resign other FA's that means they are losing without replacement:
Starters - Edwards, Ellis, Jenkins, Coleman (had 4 starts last year), Woody, Folk, Weatherford, Scott (projected release)
Non-Starters - Taylor, Smith, Richardson, Gholston
That's a ton of people they are losing that they really don't have replacements for. They are severely weakening both the O and front 7 for a CB. It doesn't matter if they have Revis and Aso if they can't get to the passer, they have no one to cover the slot receiver, their O can't put points up, their OL can't keep Sanchez upright on the right side, and their front seven are going to get chewed up by RB's
