New York Jets rescind contract offer to Ndamukong Suh

New York Jets rescind contract offer to Ndamukong Suh

NFL Network reported a great visit with the Rams was the reason Suh ran a reverse on the Raiders.

"And when that deadline passed, myself and Christopher - Todd was always informed about this, the whole time - made the determination if we wanted to stay in the race for him, or pull out".

So, the fact that after just a few days the Jets are already rescinding their offer shows that there may have been a change of plans coming down from the top, something CEO Christopher Johnson confirmed. He has visited several teams, including the Jets, Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams. Our thinking just changed.

Suh was released by the Miami Dolphins on March 15, midway through a six-year, $114 million contract he signed with the team. "That's where I have to leave it".

Ndamukong Suh's free-agency carousel remains one of the dominant storylines of the National Football League offseason.

Maccagnan said the offer to Suh was a one-year deal, and there was a deadline attached to it. "They appear to be the front-runner for Suh".

Johnson was not originally involved when the offer to Suh was made.

Even after making several signings in free agency, the Jets have the salary-cap space to pay a player such as Suh a lot of money, but Johnson clearly was not on board with the former No. 2 overall pick, although he didn't want to be perceived as having pulled rank on his general manager. "In discussion with Mike, looking into what our plan is, it became apparent to the two of us that this just didn't work".

"I don't want to be a flash in the pan", Johnson said, speaking of his team-building approach.
