I don't want to lose him, but in a league with a hard cap, it becomes difficult to retain your stars beyond a certain point.
Looking at it from a cold analytical perspective, the Jets are better positioned than most teams would be to lose a player of Mo's ability, given all the talent they have on the D-line.
It doesn't get a lot of mention, but you're talking about a player who is coming off a broken leg and who plays a position where the durability of that leg is going to be tested on every play.
The good news, to me, is that I have much more faith in the current GM than I had in previous ones to make the best decision. There's no guarantee that it will work out, but I think MacCagnan will make the best decision based on the circumstances.
That's a departure from the past, when Rex would have insisted on making a deal without consideration for the consequences and the GM would go along. Idzik was just a series of disasters and I wouldn't trust anything he did.
