Jets guard Brian Winters spoke today about his large new contract that will keep him in green and white.
"I was comfortable with the decision I made as I was going through the process," he said during a conference call Tuesday. "I really like what the Jets have going here and I wanted to be a part of that and continue it.
"They're the team that gave me my shot in the beginning and I wanted to continue from that."
I’m sure there’s some degree of truth to what he’s saying, but the Jets didn’t really put any of that to the test. It’s conceivable that Winters left some money on the table to re-sign early with the Jets, but he probably did not leave a whole lot. We are still awaiting the final parameters of the deal, but the reported guarantees suggest nobody will walk away from that contract thinking Winters was the loser.
