    Paying Jones is a no brainer... looks like Jerry is gaining some traction with the coaching staff and FO.

    Jerry actually played well this year. He just needs to keep the weight off and play consistent. If he plays good next year he might be worth keeping.

    Both deserve it. Need to lock Jones up ASAP though.

    I'm not excited about this. I'd rather lock Reshad Jones up to a long term contract, as he's made me a believer. I guess this is a good start though.

    John Jerry is not a good RG. I don't know what metric Ireland is looking at, but watching the games his play was poor. He has physical ability, but he doesn't play football at a high level. If this is an attempt to lock him up a bit at a relatively low salary just in case we hit the lottery and he becomes the player his physical ability suggests (after several years of being a lazy putz) then I'm fine with it. But if this is some sort of indication that his play was acceptable and that he is in our long term plans ... this exhasperates me. We're a football team, not a track and field team ... the guy has had several years and several coaches that have all led to him being a lazy physical specimen who doesn't play the game of football well. Ugh.

    Remember about 3 years ago when Soliai put all his weight problems behind him and came to camp in top shape? Then got a big pay day and kept it up? That's what we need from Jerry. This is make or break offseason for Jerry. He needs to come to camp in top shape and put his lazy reputation, going back to his first 3 years of college, behind him. Grow up Jerry and be a professional once and for all.

    Sounds like you are saying you are not happy they are getting a raise. This is all part of the new CBA. Jerry and Reshad are both free agents next year, they are just getting a raise b/c of how much they played and the level of their play in relation to their contract.

    I think Jim Turner deserves a lot of credit for getting Jerry to be a solid 16 game starter after where he was at the beginning of Training Camp.

    I'm happy for both of them. Many have taken shots in the past at Jones, Jerry, Clemons, Misi, etc, etc. Sometimes patience is a good thing. :)

    Yeah, I guess I didn't state that the best way. The CBA mandated pay increases isn't what I'm not happy about ... that simply is what it is. But, with Jones I was hoping to hear more and preferrably to hear that he was locked down for the long term ... which I didn't hear at all.

    With Jerry I heard positive comments about from Ireland, which I guess is nothing more than typical GM-speak. But my hope is that we are aiming higher than Jerry's play. I'd have rather heard more of the "long way to go" or "he's just beginning to tap his potential, but if he wants to be here long term then he needs to raise his play a couple of notches" or something like that.

    My initial reaction was that it sounded like we were trying to lowball Jones and praise Jerry for his poor level of play last year. I probably could have worded it differently though, you're right.

    Ireland picks. Poor coaching tainted Ireland's past drafts.

    Glad to see Jerry doing well. Hope he can keep it up.

    Jones is an absolute baller and is currently in negotiations with the Phins for an extension.

    good rule for the players union but sucks for us in that it'll make extending Jones a little more difficult.

    While has has drafted some bad players to a certain extent this is also very true.

    Jerry is probably better suited for RT.

    Not sure what games you have been watching, but it's clear you do not know what you're talking about. He finally showed what he was capable of since being drafted. I hope he stays and can be productive for years to come.

    Jerry is a solid Guard for us and I think he has turned the corner and will only continue to improve under this regime. Keep Incog to play the RT position along with w.e rookie we draft, slide Martin to the left and pick up Levitre and our line is ready to excel

    Pay Jones ASAP

    I'd like to know a little more on this clause, its not a big deal if the player is making less than a million but if you have a QB making like $5 million+ and he's still looking kinda mediocre midway through his second to last season this clause may get a lot of guys benched prematurely to save a little cash. Or did Jerry and Jones salaries double just because they were making so little to begin with? If you have to double $6 or $7 million thats a big chunk of change.
