As a Jets fan, he should be all too familiar with contract restructuring Wink

I think Fitz will take a pay cut next year if the team continues to show signs of life..probably just wants to make sure the 10-6 season was not a fluke beforehand. Either way...he will not be getting paid 25 million next year. Either he takes a pay cut or the cards cut him and pay off whatever guaranteed money is left( which is high )

So next year they either have him on the roster at 20+ million or they have to eat like 15m to cut him. That's not good lol.

I thought it was a little less than that, maybe around 11? Not sure. But essentially yes. Either we pay him 23 million, cut him and pay him between 10-15 million, or restructure again.

idk, with that cap hit the following years, wouldnt it be tougher?

Good move for the present which this team is looking at right now with Carson at the helm and no prospects behind him


Perhaps they'll hope for some Seattle or SF luck and get a quality QB on a rookie contract.



Yeah but who?

If overthecap's #'s are updated with this contract....

In 2015 his cap # is $23.6 million, with 42 players accounting for $116 million in team salary.

Cutting/trading him would save $9.2 million but still count $14.4 million against the cap. (a June 1st designated cut would mean $7.35 million for 2015 and $7.05 million for 2016)


In 2016 his cap # is $17.6 million, with 11 players accounting for $50 million in team salary

Cutting/trading him would save $10.55 million but still count $7.05 million against the cap.

That's exactly what they're hoping for methinks (or just about any franchise really). But getting a cheap rookie contract would enable them to ditch Carson and free up $10mm for next year. I haven't run their full numbers, but that would essentially be able to tolerate Fitzgerald's obscene cap number.

Kudos to Fitzgerald here for this. Dude seems like a class act all the way.

Guess it'll have to be said again.. Fitz didn't do anything for the team. He's NOT LOSING A DIME! All they did was convert his base salary to a signing bonus and pushed the cap hit to next year. Sure he's a class act and what not but it's not because of this. He didn't do the team any favors or anything like that. He's still getting his money.

Team first guy all the way. Do people realize how much he is sacrificing in taxes by taking the 11 million in a one lump sum? Most guys would throw that back in their employers face, I know I would.
