Class man, that CuMar ... all the way !
Would that we could've held onto him.
That is a classy move by Martin - we all expect players - especially Patriots players - to put team first... but to forgoe collecting millions of dollars because its in the best interest of the team?
Of course, I expect that the Jets will find some way to make Curtis whole on the money he's giving up in some non-salary cap related service to the team - but still, saying "no" to guaranteed money isn't the norm in the NFL
I know this will probably spark a whole other debate about Curtis and his leaving the Patriots and whether he's a traitor - but he's always been AOK in my book
I agree a class act, never embarassed the Pats, Jets or NFL... I don't view him as a traitor, more of an opportunist.
Curtis probably makes alot in endorsements and the such and will continue to do so for the next few years. I'm sure he'll find a nice cozy job in a booth somewhere calling games too (whether its ESPN, NFL Network, or so on). He's a classy guy and one of my favorite (former) Patriots, even if he only spent a few short years in Foxboro. It wasn't his fault the Jets offered him a huge contract they knew the Patriots couldn't match. He went the smart way, with the money.
Pretty much all but oficial now ... word is Curtis is finished.
Would have ben nice to see him stay here, but it was fun to watch him play anyways .... nothing but good things to say about Curtis.
F-nut, What's up, couldn't you find a BB quote for your sig?
What a waste of a rare talent. He chased a few bucks and a HC who never sticks around to clean up his messes to a place where they basically ground him up for nothing.
Waste of talent? He's one of the top five rushers of all time. What a stupid thing to say.
Yea that comment is inaccurate.. Martin was a key for the Jets during their playoff runs.. He helped turn the jets into a laughing stock into a competitve team.. And kept them there for years.. So saying his talent was wasted is wrong..
