Rich Cimini of ESPN points out that Jets QB Josh McCown will earn $125,000 for every game he starts this year on top of his $6 million fully-guaranteed base salary.
Cimini points out that while this is one of the largest per-game play-time bonuses in the NFL, if not the largest, it could work against McCown later on in the year, especially if/when the Jets fall out of contention.
Cimini predicts that the Jets will give all three of their quarterbacks — McCown, Bryce Petty, and Christian Hackenberg — will all get a chance to start at some point this year.
Interestingly enough, Cimini predicts the Jets will trade away veteran RB Matt Forte before the midseason trade deadline.
Another prediction from Cimini is that the Jets will have a new kicker by the end of October and suggests Mike Nugent as a replacement to Chandler Catanzaro.
