Of course, the Jets' comparatively lowball offer of $30 million over three years -- far short of the Eagles' five-year, $60 million proposal -- probably had something to do with Asomugha's surprise choice of Philadelphia over Rex Ryan & Co.
The Jets' offer, first reported by Sports Illustrated and confirmed by a league source, was for roughly $1 million less per season than fellow cornerback Darrelle Revis makes -- no doubt intentionally so, to avoid another grueling Revis holdout.
Feinsod and Schwartz: The gift that keeps on giving.
In all seriousness, the whole matter played out how I anticipated it would. The Jets could make a play, but Asomugha ended up having a chance to play for a winner for more money.
The Jets will be just fine without him.
