Not really.  He got roughly the same amount of money in terms of guarantees (waiting to see exact numbers on first-3 years which is another important metric).  But he's definitely limited his max earnings by holding out.

 

But he also sacrificed a year of earning potential.  So, new deal should be viewed as guaranteeing him $0 in year 1.  $35M guaranteed in current deal.  I don't remember what was guaranteed in the Pitt offer.

$33M was reportedly guaranteed in the Pitt deal which I believe would've started last year and included the entirety of his 2018 salary as part of the guarantee.

 

So in that case he still got more guaranteed dollars by sitting out than he would have by signing that deal, even with taking $0 last year.

But had he gotten hurt last year, maybe he doesn't come close to this offer and that was his whole issue.

 

Now, he should have taken the Pitt longer term deal last year.

Maybe he just didn't want to play for Pittsburgh anymore. 

 

I would like to thank him for giving us the division, though. Mighty kind of him.

You'd think they'd have done this before the draft and the first round of free agency signings.

 

After four years on the job, the New York Jets fired general manager Mike Maccagnan on Wednesday morning. 

Team chairman and CEO Christopher Johnson made the announcement.

"I came to the decision to make a change after much thought and a careful assessment of what would be in the best long-term interests of the New York Jets," Johnson said in a statement.

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

They do have some talent on both sides of the ball.

 

But they're still in the same division with NE.

But they hired a mediocre coach and now made him acting GM.

 

NE sure has it good with 3 chronically dysfunctional franchises in their division.
