17 mil per year
Honestly too much money for an ILB
Jets making a big splash only to finish 5-11 again.
Yep I'm out! Way to much, that's elite DE money.
The jets are just getting all the players this year and pricing everyone else out the market!
crazy money out there especially coming from bad franchise, i m happy the cardinals arent part of this
best players come from draft or trades
maybe clinton dix is a guy i would like even if he is a priced free agents
i would sign the following players who dont demand high paychecks but offering a good performances
Darius Philon defensive tackle
Brent Urban dt/de
Billy Turner tackle
Quentin Spain guard
i would take a flier on Darron Lee for a 5th rounder
ESPN Radio this morning also stated that the Jets will sign LB Anthony Barr.
That is a lt of money for an inside "mike" linebacker.

How the NFL world has changed:
In 2002, Ray Lewis signed a seven-year, $50M contract ($7.1M per year) that included a then-NFL record signing bonus of $19M.
Now, 17 years later, C.J. Mosley agrees to a five-year, $85M deal ($17M per year) that includes $51M guaranteed.
The key for Keim will be to snag some of the better players who are left over once the first wave of legal tampering splash signings is over. Mosley would've been a great improvement to our defense considering his run stuffing strength, but he is nowhere near the elite Kuechly/Wagner tier. Yet the 50m guaranteed he got is elite edge rusher money.
Mosley was the big prize. But there are comparable players available for less than a third of what the Jets paid Mosley. Players who aren't significantly worse than Mosley, like Hicks, but have less reputation and/or recent injury.
I havent seen (though I dont have a lot of time to pay close attention) a team who is a piece or two away from the big prize spending this kind of money on a single player. Teams that win dont HAVE to sign that big name. Teams desperate to compete are compelled to apend. Teams that win regularly build in the draft and through smart, less newsworthy trades.
While Im not convinced the Cards FO currently has the talent to get us there this way, Im hopeful in that I believe in their methodology after years of wanting them to be the team that signed the "big names" Jeebus, the amount of money being thrown around by teams is INSANE!
That’s overpaying. Glad Keim bowed out
Jets GM to Dan Snyder and John Lynch: “Hold my beer...”
Wow that's Chandler Jones money.
Want to know how NOT build a football team? Spending $17 million on ILB is the first step.
I wonder how much Jamie Collins is looking for? He’s available unless he is headin back to NE.
Just sign my man ex Horns Jordan Hicks, problem solved! And he’s better against the pass imo
I wanted Keim to sign CJ Mosley. Oh Well. Let's play a 6-5 defense (eliminating need for any LBs) baby!
