The jets just agreed to a five year $33 mil dollar deal with S kerry rhodes... where on earth are they getting all this money after over paying many of the players they signed already this offseason (Faneca, Pace, Tony richardson, Damien Woody, etc.) ?

Probably by signing the players to back loaded contracts. It will catch up to them in a couple of years and they will probably be in salary cap hell.

Staying under the cap is easy anymore.

The thing is this will catch up to them eventually and will be in a SIT like washington up against the cap every year

Don't care about the cap implication right now. They had to lock Rhodes up and they did, thats the important part. If it were your teams you'd be saying the same thing.

Once again, if you would have gotten these players we did, you wouldnt have overpaid.

It's a fact that they are paying a lot of money to be a 3rd place team.

That maybe so but their not picking 1st overall in the draft now are they.

Nah, I don't think the Bills have done enough to be 2nd in the division.

They had to extend Rhodes and imo he's the only one in their off-season who comes close to deserving a big contract. More money than B. Sanders? Lol, idk about that one.

And the Taintriots are not picking 31st nor are they picking 32nd overall.
Or did you forget:
19 & HELL NO!

Actually their picking @ # 7 :wink:
I just find it rather ironic that some dolpins fans can put any team down after struggling to finish at 1-15.

If they were they'd be spending a lot of money to be a fourth place team.

If you examine the contracts the Jets have signed their FA to they have actually got quite a lot of room left. They won't be heading to a Washington style situation in other words.

You know the old saying.....free agents hurt the team they leave more then then help the team they go to.

Guys you should look at the contracts more closely before posting. Seriously the deals aren't as large as you think, they won't be seeing a lot of the money and they have a lot of incentives with guys like Damien Woody and Kris Jenkins. And now that D-Rob is gone we have even more room, we will probably give our TE Chris Baker a extension now.
We aren't in cap trouble, we are in a great position. And I think you guys are just jealous.
