I'd like to see Mac extend Enunwa if they are comfortable with his neck being ok. Robbie Anderson too, just leave yourself an out if he fucks up again. I looked at next years WR FA crop, it's pretty meager. Buffalo has a shitton of money too. Robbie and his speed with Josh Allens arm would be lethal.
Robby is a restricted free agent. This past season, a first round tender was about $4mil; 2nd round was just under $3mil. With our cap space, we can lock him in for $4mil - $4.5mil for another year, which gives us that out if he fucks up again. If someone is willing to give us a 1 and sign him to a long term deal, let him go; but I can't see anyone doing that unless he has an All Pro season and is squeaky clean off the field.
Can't blame the guy for squeezing every dime out of his NFL career. It's a business and a very short window to make money.
With that said, he's one of the best Jets, in terms of talent, to ever put on a uniform and deserves to be cheered. It also happens he's a good businessman too.
Can't argue with you at all. Players have short careers and there is nothing wrong with trying to maximize your earnings. But that mercenary attitude comes with a cost -- and in Revis' case, he is not likely to be beloved by any fan base. Maybe after more time passes, fans will embrace him more, but it is hard to erase the memory of the aging vet who did not seem to give a shit during his last season as a Jet.
If I were going to the game, I would applaud him for his contributions on the field, primarily during his first tour of duty with the team. But the reception will not be the same as if it will be for a guy like Mangold
