I bet Mangini will talk to Asante after the game. Asante is the Jets FA target this offseason.
Whoever gets Asante is going to overpay (even if he goes to the pro bowl during every year of his new contract). Let the Jets have him.
Who are the other Free Agent CBs who will be available?
As much as I have an issue with Asante and his tackling ability, I have to give credit where credit is due. Teams haven't been throwing at him nearly as much as they did last year at the end of the season.
Next year could be a big re-building year for the defense with status of Bruschi, Seau, and Harrison also up in the air.
I hope the rat does. That would be tampering.:singing: The season is NOT over and A.S. is still under contract.
I doubt it, but even if he was that stupid, he should be trying to find a back-up plan as he might be fired come the end of this season.
There always looking for help in the Razors parking lots. LOL
I agree, he may well be looking for another job after this year..
yeah, so what. everyone does it, including BB. they are not going do the deal on the field, the most he will say is "good game, ya know i wouldn't mind seeing you in a jets uniform next year"
Tampering aside, I'm not sure how many FA's the JETS can attract without overpaying substantially when you factor in that the HC and GM may be gone midway through next season. Remember, Ty Law wanted to play for Herm so badly he had to follow him to KC less than a year after signing on with the JETS. That's not something the kind of contract Asante longs for would allow for. Plus the last time they added a Patriots ballhawk CB to their roster, he got 10 picks and they made a coaching change and parted company with him anyway after the season. That's because the JETS have a lot more holes to worry about than poaching Patriot DB's will ever patch.
Watch BB secretly "mike up" Asante, then after the asswhoopin, Ratgeni goes up to him and starts lobbying him to sign with the Jets.
BB takes the tape to Godell, and then Pats will have then #2 and the #3 picks in next years draft!!!!!
he cant cover moss either
He won't say it because he needs competition to drive his market interest, but hopefully after what he sees on Sunday Asante will be smiling while thinking ugh, I'd rather throw up in my mouth than wallow through your last season in NY with you, buddy.
If Asante is smart he will come to terms here or get as far away from the AFCE as he can. And if he's not smart enough to figure that out, then his value here a moot point.
The Jets will be talking to Asante from now until they sign him
even though it is illegal. If this was pointed out to Roger Goodall,
he would say "Boys will be Boys" and let the matter drop.
Wrong. If he is "smart", he will take as much guaranteed money as he can possibly get, regardless of where he is playing.
