So a new position and a new contract for Vernon or at least a revised one anyway:
The Jets have restructured Gholston's contract, a source familiar with the situation said on Sunday. While the specific numbers weren't immediately available, the team lowered his base salary (originally $1.9 million), with a chance for him to recoup the money by reaching incentives, a source said.
It will be interesting to get the details of this restructured contract and just how much is now incentive based. It will also be interesting to see how well he performs now he has to actually produce for his money.
I like this move, Vernon obviously agreed to it, he probably had little choice but at least we will save at least a little bit of money if Gholston doesn't perform for the third year in a row.
Good move by the Jets
