The thing is, the "rumor" was basically created out of thin air. People wanted Tebow to got to Jax, so they assumed the teams would work something out. Then the owner of the Jags (PHENOMENAL mustache, btw) hinted he might be open to bringing in Tebow and that's all the Teboners needed. A crack in the floodgates becomes a crater and all hell breaks loose.
Tebow is 100% gone from the Jets, and Sanchez is 50/50 right now. They can eat his cap hit and still be about $18 million under. Once factoring in that half of the guys they need to sign will be minimum level and they'll keep ~5 rookies on the roster via the draft...that means they have about $10 mil for 5 spots, and if you have ~$2mil per roster spot you can sign some good players. When the Jets re-signed Harris (this is when his second contract actually kicked in), Cromartie and Holmes their Year 1 cap hit was just over $3 million, so it's entirely possible they sign two above average starters and 3 bench players, or one really good player and 4 bench players, and...well, you get the idea.
But I'll just take a GM at this point. Someone to look the camera in the eye and say "Mark Sanchez...(platitudes that mean nothing)...that being said, we felt it was in everyone's best interest that we cut Mark and let him find a new opportunity elsewhere." Please.

this has been the most entertaining round of NFL playoff games i can remember in years. BAL-DEN was one of the best NFL games i've seen in years period. San Francisco was entertaining as hell last night and that Seahawks comeback gone wrong was incredible. Russell Wilson is so much fun tonight
Hope the late game tonight lives up to the precedent the rest of them have set so far
