Roster News: Jets re-sign Thomas Morstead

This was no surprise to anyone:

In case you're wondering why the Jets hadn't signed him before now when it was so clear there was mutual interest in him returning, it's because he had signed a VSB (Veteran Salary Benefit) contract, which enabled the team to claim a salary cap reduction so his full salary didn't count against the cap. When you do this, by rule, you cannot extend the contract at the end of the season and inside must negotiate a new one once the league year begins. Therefore, this deal will have to be signed after 4pm.
