Barring an extension or agreement in collective bargaining talks, Jets assistant coaches are readying for a pay cut next week.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News and Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger report Jets assistants will take a 25% weekly pay reduction in the event of a lockout. If the lockout lasts three months, then the salaries could be cut by 50%.
The Jets will reimburse coaches for all the money if no preseason games are missed. Sadly, most league observers do expect the preseason to be affected at this point. While these pay cuts are typical around the league, the cross-town (cross-Stadium?) Giants plan no such cuts at this time.
Gang Green already announced last week that employees on the business side of the building will start mandatory furloughs in the event of a lockout.
On a related note, PFT is looking for someone to edit the typos in my posts.
