Late in the week, the New York Jets jumped into the free agent frenzy to potentially sign All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The team was believed to have presented him with the most lucrative offer among the few teams that he met with since being let go by the Miami Dolphins.

This had built the perception that the 31-year-old had placed New York as a serious contender to land his services next season and possibly beyond that. However, Jets CEO Christopher Johnson stated on Sunday afternoon that the team has rescinded that reported offer from Suh, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday.

The sudden decision to take back the lucrative offer may be due to the lack of interest from Suh in signing with the team despite it being largest one presented to him. New York likely had made it clear that bringing him aboard would make him a major part of their defensive identity over the duration of the deal.

What may have factored into the situation is that Suh may be seriously considering joining any of the three other teams that are vying to acquire his services. Each of them currently boasts a more sound roster coming off playoff appearances with the franchises trending upward toward competing for Super Bowls in the near future. The New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams have led the pack in that regard with their promising core group of players that could lift them to a deep playoff run next season.

Meanwhile, the Jets have brought aboard a slew of new talent, but there is no guarantee that will translate to the team experiencing success on the field. This decision to take the offer off the table could allow for the team to carry that financial flexibility over to address other areas of need this offseason while maintaining the salary cap space that could be necessary in another instance down the road.
