The Jets practiced for the primary time Wednesday with out Wilson, who did not report with the remainder of the staff on Tuesday due to his contract scenario.
With Wilson unsigned and the Jets nonetheless in want of one other veteran quarterback, the staff is scheduled to work out quarterbacks Josh Johnson and Sean Mannion on Thursday, sources informed ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Wilson’s contract is slotted at $35.15 million over 4 years, together with a $22.9 million signing bonus, however the two sides are squabbling over offset language.
The Jets embrace an offset in each contract, which gives monetary safety in the event that they launch the participant earlier than the contract is full. This is not an uncommon stance. It is believed that 30 of the 32 groups sometimes embrace an offset with contracts which have assured cash. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Rams are the one groups that sometimes do not embrace offset language of their contracts.
An offset clause permits a staff to chop a participant earlier than the top of his four-year contract is accomplished and have the remaining cash diminished by the quantity of his subsequent contract. That is deeply rooted within the Jets’ negotiating philosophy, and so they do not wish to create a precedent.
With out an offset, a lower participant collects the assure from his previous staff, plus the cash he receives from his new staff — aka double dipping.
On Tuesday, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear that Lance is coming into coaching camp because the staff’s No. 2 quarterback, behind Jimmy Garoppolo.
“There is no open competitors proper now by way of they’re getting equal reps with the identical group,” Shanahan mentioned. “Jimmy is coming in because the 1 and Trey is coming in as the two.”
