In response to TFB12's comment:
I really think Alex Smith will be going to the Jets which sucks because I like Alex Smith.
How do the Jets afford Alex Smith? Even if they move Sanchez out, Sanchez's 8.25 hits the books in 2013. THat means, Alex Smith's trade value, which would need to be a 3rd rd pick the Jets can't afford to unload (could be as high as a 2nd if there is competition with Jax and other desperate teams), has his own contract carrying over. So, you're looking at 15+ million at the QB position in 2013, a loss of a 3rd rd pick, etc.
So, their QB salary from 2012 to 2013 is going up and way up. What they should do is fire Rex, overpay for a quality GM who gets full autonomy, Woody is not involved, deal Revis or Cromartie, and turn to McElroy for next year understanding it's a lame duck kind of year. Tank any games you think you can't win and try to position yourself for a top 5 that you don't blow.
Revis needs a new deal or will need to be traded. If he goes to market post 2013, how does that give the Jets any leverage? It doesn't. Throw in the fact Rex will be fired after 2013 because they WILL NOT make the playoffs, and why would Cromartie resign there?
No matter how you slice it, NY has the worst leverage of any organization right now and predictably so, it includes their ability to hire a GM right now.
No one in their right mind would want to go there. I could walk in there tomorrow and fix their basic problems and do it cheaper than any more they're currently interviewing.
Teams always move money around to make things work. Teams are good at doing this. I don't see Vick going there, Rex won't know what to do with him. Wildcat, lol!! They can't go with Sanchez again so they gotta bring somebody in, this one makes sense.
