Jets release veteran center Nick Mangold; Free up 9 million

Today the New York Jets released veteran center Nick Mangold. The move creates 9 plus million dollars in cap space.

The Jets need cap space but this move will hurt. Mangold was the best player on their offensive line.


Mangold plans on continuing his playing career and hopes to land with a contender.

Darrelle Revis has charges pending after an altercation

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is facing charges for robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault after he was involved early Monday morning in an altercation on Pittsburgh’s South Side.

The 31-year-old NFL star’s lawyer told KDKA-TV he was assaulted by a group of five people when he came home to visit family and friends this weekend.

STATEMENT BY BLAINE JONES LAW, Representing Darrelle Revis:

Mr. Revis came home to Pittsburgh this past weekend to visit family and friends. During that time Mr. Revis went by a location in the Southside that he is in the process of developing. Mr. Revis was physically assaulted while at that location by a group of at least 5 people. Mr. Revis feared for his safety and retreated from the aggressors. Mr. Revis was not arrested after this incident. Mr. Revis sought medical attention as a result of the aforementioned attack.

This will be interesting to see the outcome. Remember Revis has never been in much trouble, so I tend to take his side on this one.

 

Ryan Fitzpatrick is officially a free agent; I would take him as a back-up

Rex Ryan hopes the Jets lose Ryan Fitzpatrick to Free Agency

Ryan Fitzpatrick is currently a free agent

Friday has come and went, and now Ryan Fitzpatrick the former Harvard grad is a free agent.  His contract voided on Friday after the Jets decided not to re-sign him.

New York will have to pay Fitzpatrick $5 million of the $10 million he was set to be paid in 2017 as part of the signing bonus portion of his contract.

Fitzpatrick, 34, threw 12 touchdowns compared to 17 interceptions en route to leading New York to a 3-8 record in 11 starts this past season. That came on the heels of a career-best 2015 performance that saw him throw 31 touchdowns and just 15 interceptions.

I would take Fitz-Magic on my team, he was a beast for the Bills and in 2015 with the Jets.  Would you take him as a back-up?  I highly doubt he will be starting anytime soon, but as a back-up he is a great addition.
