Typical Jets/Giants with Le’veon Bell/OBJ Transactions

It’s a tale of one city and two teams. (Well, more like state as in New Jersey and not New York City.) The New York Giants have always been an organization that doesn’t put up with any bullshit from their players and in most cases, they get rid of the ‘me-first’ or questionable behavior players at the first opportunity. Examples include Plaxico Burress and Brandon Jacobs. (One major exception was Lawrence Taylor and the only reason why he stuck around as long as he did was because of Bill Parcells.)

The New York Jets, on the other hand, are akin to a halfway house or rehabilitation center for players who have worn out their welcome elsewhere and come to town with excess baggage. Where do we start? Braylon Edwards, Santonio Holmes and Isiah Crowell are three that jump off the page and the (Same Old) Jets are also infamously known as a place where a player can basically get away with anything without repercussion from the head coach, front office or ownership. Just look back at Sheldon Richardson, Robby Anderson, Dylan Donahue and Darron Lee.

So in typical moves for both teams, this week the Jets brought in a high-paid asshole while the Giants rid themselves of one.

Odell Beckham, Jr. has been one hell of an exciting player for the G-Men, but his antics have kept adding up and he was traded to the Cleveland Browns for first and third round picks and linebacker Jabril Peppers. Obviously having second thoughts on extending OBJ just over a year ago for five years at $90 million, the Giants were so intent on dumping the mercurial wide receiver that they are fine with eating multi-millions (from his signing bonus and now-dead salary cap money).

The Pittsburgh Steelers are much like the Giants, shedding their roster of talent when it begins to become a problem. The aforementioned Holmes won the Super Bowl MVP and was traded to the Jets that same offseason and that is minor compared to what they did this past year. Star running back Le’veon Bell held out all season long and then wideout Antonio Brown was dealt to the Oakland Raiders (another team like the Jets, welcoming castoffs like an old widow bringing in stray cats).

So of course Bell – who became a free agent – got from the Jets what he wanted all along from the Steelers in the form of a long-term deal with a shitload of guaranteed money… exactly what a 27-year-old running back who hasn’t taken a hit since January of 2017 deserves, right? And one that has been arrested and suspended before for substance abuse violations, no less.

Bell inked a four-year, $52.5 million contract ($35 million guaranteed) to join a Jets squad that just hired Adam Gates  – who bombed out in Miami – to lead the way as their new head coach.

These scenarios are going to end the way they always do – the Giants sacrificed talent for morals and will be better in the long run, while the Jets made another desperation move without looking at character.

Anyway, #FuckTheNFL.
