How can the jets sign holmes, cromartie, edwards, tomlinson, bart scott, revis, etc and still have more room than we did for Plax. I can guarantee you that if we had offered similar money, he would be at Latrobe right now. We just couldn't offer the money. So my main question after this entire digression is, can someone explain how we are in such cap hell?
have a look...
