    Report: Jets GM engaged in questionable practices during free agency

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ating-tactics/

    Multiple agents told Mehta the Jets engaged in “questionable practices” by leading them to believe the team’s interest was at a level that the eventual offers apparently didn’t match.

    That specific accusation comes in an article that focuses primarily on the frustrations arising within the organization regarding the slow pace of G.M. John Idzik in free-agency negotiations. An unnamed member of the organization said that Idzik “operates on his own time and schedule,” and that the situation is “unbelievable.”

    As to the latest player the Jets failed to sign, Mehta reports that the Jets made a “desperate 11th-hour offer” for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, but that it was too late to keep him away from the Giants.
    Idzik sounds like a bizarre dude.

    Are we 100% sure Idzik isn't a cuban?

    Dunno ... But, seeing as how he works for the Jets, we do know that he's an asshole.

    Hopefully the jets will be the first team to have to give back some that cap to the nfl because they can't figure out how to use it.

    Rex Ryan is reportedly "pissed" with John Idzik in that fact that he is bumbling through free agency so far. Dysfunction is back in New York(but did it really ever leave?).
