    Totally agree that execs like Idzik and the Raiders GM were unprepared by the aggressive spending their rivals were able to do in free agency due to the increase in the cap. In Idzik’s case he clearly was not prepared for the aggressiveness of the other GMs(Giants w/DRC) as the free agent market got away from him.
    Sadly though last year’s free agents appear to have had more notable names(Revis,Talib,Jackson,etc) than the expected free agents this offseason. More than ever teams like the Raiders,Jets, etc will be inclined to overpay especially if their respective GMs survive another year.
    With Harris signing and Broncos having to pay DT, it looks like they may not aggressively try to resign Julius Thomas even with Welker likely gone.
    Lastly I know it’s not a huge contract but after another no catch day with 2-point conversion drop and inconsistent special teams play I still can’t understand the mid season extension for Kerley. In 4yrs I can’t remember too many plays where Kerley made enough of a positive contribution in games that resulted in victories. Being the Jets leading receiver in past years where Keller, Holmes or other receivers were scrubs or injured is not impressive.
