Performance and money Dan Leberfeld
As we learned last night on the cable show – salaries are as big a factor as performance this preseason when it comes to the Jets personnel decisions.
A team debating whether keep fullback Tony Richardson because he makes $855,000 is clearly in a cost-cutting mode.
A team cutting Laveranues Coles because he makes the veteran minimum is in a cost-cutting mode.
The Jets aren’t alone.
A lot of teams are making decisions based on finances, not just talent, in the current economic climate.
So when you watch the Jets-Philadelphia game, don’t just consider how well a player plays, but how much they make.
The ideal backups for the 2010 New York Jets are players making very little money.
So much for the uncapped year leading to free spending.
