Similar to the Bogo signing, it's not awful, but it's not great either IMO.
This is my thought as well. We definitely paid more than what some other teams can get players to accept. At least the deals made sense for our team. In 4 years the cap might be $10-12M higher and we'll ideally have a couple guys on ELCs and a few more on bridge deals.
If any of the players flop we're in big trouble but long term this gives the Jets some stability that they can build around.
