Arbitrator ruling and the Jets salary situation
Murat Ates: “Honestly, given how reasonable this number is I am surprised it took an arbitration hearing. I’m also surprised it took a hearing that went on until late Sunday afternoon. As I write in the piece, Copp is a useful and versatile player who should easily be worth $2.28 million.”
Scott Billeck: If the Jets went with Kristian Vesalainen ($900,000), Mason Appleton ($750,000), and Andrei Chibisov ($800,000) after Copp’s ruling yesterday, that would leave around $15.07 million for Laine and Connor.
