Jets Sign Kerry Rhodes to Hefty Extension, Sign Ricky Vaughn to One-Day Contract

Today the New York Jets locked up one of their best defensive players by signing Safety Kerry Rhodes to a contract extension. According to various media reports, citing anonymous sources (possibly Ted Danson), the extension is for 5 years, $33.5 million, including $20 million guaranteed, making Rhodes one of the NFL's highest-paid safeties. The Jets also cut a check to Ricky Vaughn 99 (and all other Season Ticket Waitlist members) to reimburse me for four years of paying the $50 annual fee, which has since been discontinued following a threat by former Special Teams Coordinator Mike Westhoff to "smack some fools around with [my] damn cane! Ahhhhrg!" Since there is no detail on the memo, I declare the check a one-day football contract putting me, Ricky Vaughn, in Bo Jackson / Deion Sanders status!
