Surgery For Abraham; Pennington's Contract
1. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting on its web site that ex-Jet John Abraham underwent surgery on his injured groin this morning and "will miss the next three to four weeks."
As Jets fans know, this means that Abraham will be out at least six more weeks, and that he may miss the rest of the season.
2. Today's Newsday reports that Chad Pennington will almost certainly recuperate the full $6 million cut in his 2006 salary in incentives for playing time.
Good for Chad, but this is not good for the Jets. The $6 million will accrue on next season's salary cap, and no loophole can avoid this. Additionally, the full prorated amount of Curtis Martin's large signing bonus will be part of next season's cap number, assuming that Martin retires, as appears almost certain.
